How do I chat with others using Portal Chat?

Users can chat with:

  • Anyone on their Profile2 "Connections" that are currently logged into Trunk
  • Anyone currently logged into the same Trunk course or project site.

The Portal Chat is accessed via a small "Chat" tab located at the bottom right of the Trunk display. If any of a user's Profile2 Connections are logged into Trunk or if anyone else is currently logged into the same Trunk course or project site, a number appears on the Chat tab indicating the number of users available for chat. Clicking on the Chat tab and then the user's name initiates the chat.

When a number appears in the Portal Chat tab, click the Chat tab.
