How to use NAIDW's Chatroom
If you've had any questions about how to access and use NAIDW's chatrooms, look no further. Below you will find a video tutorial and a step-by-step picture tutorial explaining how to find, join, and participate in one of our numerous chatrooms.
Step 1 To begin, you must be logged on in order to use the chatroom. There are a number of different ways to do this, and two options are illustrated in the image below.
After logging in, the simplest way to access the chatrooms is to click "Chat" found on the "User Bar," which is on the very top of every page.
Step 3 After clicking the "Chat" button, a new window or tab will open. On this new page, you should notice a few things. First of all, you can join any of the pre-created chatrooms. To do this, simply hover the mouse over the room that you would like to enter and click. If you would like to create a custom room, you would click "create chatroom," and follow the instructions that open. In the case of the tutorial, we will enter the chatroom titled "Workers Compensation."
Step 4 When you click or create a chatroom, you will join that room. On the right, you will see a list of all users currently in that room. In order to type and post a message you need to click in the area next to the "text bubble" icon. This is found at the very bottom of the window.
Step 5 Once you have clicked in the area next to the "text bubble" you can start typing your message. To send the message press the "enter" key on your keyboard.
Step 6 After you hit "enter" your message will be sent and you will see it appear above. This is where all user's messages will appear. To type another message you may need to re-click in the area next to the "text bubble" found in the bottom of the window.
