Seamless integration and notifications
Needless to say that Team Chat integrates with all other features of Planio. Discussing an issue in the chat? Your chat history will be easily accessible from that issue. Discussing a wiki page or a document? Post it to the chat and it will be linked automatically. Links to external content like videos or tweets will be expanded as well. Need a colleague on the chat? Simply mention their name and they will receive a notification to come online.
Find discussions using Search
All conversations in Team Chat will be archived right in the corresponding Planio project. This way, everybody can simply look up what has been said on a subject and absent people can catch up on past chats easily. Planio's activity stream and search feature make finding any piece of information super easy. If connecting using a chat client over IRC, Team Chat will always replay all messages from when you disconnected, so you won't miss a thing.
Use your favorite IRC client
In the spirit of Open Source and open protocols, using Team Chat on your desktop or smartphone will not require a proprietary client. Keep using your favorite chat client and connect it to Planio. With Team Chat, your Planio account is a fully-fledged IRC server and you can connect securely with any client app that supports IRC. Every Planio project will have its own channel and access control can be configured using Planio's roles and permissions.
Of course, you can use Team Chat directly in the browser, too!
