Chatter for Salesforce

Currently not supported.

Chat for Resco CRM

When used with Resco CRM server back end, Resco Mobile CRM can include a chat.

Using chat in Resco Mobile CRM

Tap Chat from the Home menu to access the chat function. You can chat in public or public channels, or directly send private messages to a particular user.

Note If you don't see chat in your app, contact your administrator.


Channels are ideal for sending messages to a group of users. Channels can be public or private: public are available to all, private are invite-only. You can join or leave channels (except the default, General channel). You can create new channels: tap on Channels, then tap on the plus symbol.

Direct messages

Tap on a name to start chatting with that person. Tap on Direct Messages to display the list of users; use this option to initiate a chat with a person that you have not chatted with yet.

Message functions

To send a message, either to a channel or to a particular user, type a message and then tap on Send. You can add smileys and also attachments. Attachments can come from multiple sources: You can capture a new picture, you can select from existing pictures, you can select a file, or you can send a link to any record in Resco CRM.
