Communicate with diagram collaborators in real-time using Cacoo’s chat function.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to:

  • Start a chat

Start a chat

Diagram collaborators and anyone given edit access via public link can add messages to the chat. To start a chat within a diagram:

  • Select the “Chat” icon in the panel menu.
  • Type your message.
  • Press “Enter” or click the “Post” button.

Tag other collaborators in your message by using “@” in your message or clicking the “@” icon to open a list of collaborators. Select the name you want to mention and continue typing your comment. To tag all folder collaborators, use “@all.” This feature isn’t available to guest users. Add emojis by clicking the emoji icon to open the menu.

To share the link to a specific message, click on its timestamp, which will change the URL in the browser’s address bar. Copy/paste the URL to share the message with others. Chat history isn’t available to guest users.

Manage your chat messages

You can edit and delete your own chat messages. If your message has a typo, click on the text to open edit mode. Make any updates and press “Enter” to apply them. To delete a message, select the trash can icon in edit mode.
