Kona conversations are a great way to communicate with others in a space so you can get things done! When you explore Kona, you will find that you can have online conversations with people in the spaces you have created around tasks you are trying to complete, calendar events, files you have shared, and website bookmarks you would like to discuss.
You can also have one-on-one conversations with people that stay private. To start a one-on-one conversation, click on a person’s picture anywhere within Kona. You can easily locate their picture from the People section located on the left sidebar of the My Kona and the right sidebar of the Space pages. Once you click on a picture, a popup will appear that includes details of the person you clicked as well as a “Chat” button. Click this button to open the conversation details pane. Then click into the comments box, located at the bottom of the screen and start typing away. Hit the Enter button or click Send when you are done typing and the discussion will be started. The person in the conversation with you will receive an online notification about your conversation.
One-on-one conversations are private. Only you and the person you are chatting with will see the conversation.
If the other person is not online in Kona when you initiate a chat with them, they can receive an email digest of the conversation and reply through email or in the Kona chat window.
