Messages Page

From Community Weaver 3 Help
Jump to: navigation, search

Messages can be sent from any member to any other members of the timebank. The messages can be read in CW on the member's message page. A copy of the message is also sent to the recipient(s) of the message via email, unless they react to the message when online in CW.

How do I get to the message page

  • Click the Message icon in the Menu Bar
  • In your own profile, in the section "Recent messages", click on "My messages"
  • Anywhere you see the term "message" in a page (list of members, in a offer or request) clicking on it will start a message to that person.

View your unread messages

The messages page shows, by default, the unread messages sent to you.

Read a message

  • Click on the subject (title) of the message to read the message. If there is a chain of messages and replies, they will also be shown.
  • The message will automatically be marked as "read" 10 seconds after you open it.
  • Click on "Mark as unread" to change the message to "Unead status"
  • Click on "Delete" to mark the message as deleted.

Email Notifications to message recipients

  • Recipients of your message are notified typically within 60 seconds after your message is sent, except if any of your recipients are currently online and using Community Weaver 3.
  • If message recipient is currently online and using Community Weaver 3, and that recipient marks the message as "read", then no notification is sent.
  • If the recipient stops using Community Weaver 3 for more than 10 minutes without marking the message as "read", then a message notification is sent to them normally.
  • The email notification about a message includes the entire message.

Replying to a message

In Community Weaver:

  1. Go to your message page
  2. Click the subject of a message to read the message
  3. From this page you can reply to the message or delete the message.

Via your email:

  1. Replying to the email notification you receive about your new messages will send a reply to the sender of that message (and also all recipients of that message).

NOTE: If you reply via your email, a copy of that message will be sent by email to the sender of the message (and if there were multiple recipients also to all of the other recipients of the message)

  7. If you want to add another recipient you can search for another member, select them and add them.
