  • The Messages App 💬

    Enable private messaging in your community to bring members closer, improve collaboration, and communication efficiency

    Private messaging in online communities is one of the key features to add a social layer for personal conversations and enable members to build stronger networks.

    Benefits of private messaging

    • Better retention rate since the members don't have to use a separate tool for private communication.
    • Private conversations are personalized and highly contextual which improves communication efficiency.
    • Better collaboration between members as messaging enables a faster and easier exchange of information.

    Private messaging in Tribe communities

    The Messages App in Tribe offers a real-time and chat-like experience to the members for a private conversation. Once enabled, the messaging icon will appear right next to the notification bell. Members can also initiate a conversation by directly clicking on the "Message" button from a member profile.

    Admins can decide to enable or disable the messages app for their community.

    How to Install the Message App:

    Admin Panel> Apps> find the Messages app> Install> Enable> Save.


    Once enabled, the messaging icon will appear right next to the notifications icon on the top-right.

    Starting a private message is straightforward:

    • Open up the private messaging panel from the chat icon available on the navigation bar.


    • The search box on the left allows members to search for people to send a message.


    • After selecting a member, messages can be sent from the input box displayed at the bottom.


    Members can also initiate a conversation by directly clicking on the Message button from a member profile:


    We are very excited to release the first version of messaging app as this has been one of the most popular requests of our tribe community owners.
