To create a new chat, tap the 'New' text in the top right. You'll see the following page:

This new chat has no recipients on it by default. In order to send a message, tap the middle of the screen where it says 'Add Recipient'. From there, you can add any team members you'd like and begin sending messages.

Viewing an active chat

Tapping on an active chat will show the chat's history. You can edit certain info as well by tapping on the information icon in the top right of a chat.

From here, you can edit who is on the chat, add new recipients, change the name of the chat, and leave/archive the chat.

Other important info
