Sometimes posting a message isn't necessary, and you want to chat in real time. Campfire is the place to be!
Every Project, Team, and HQ has its own Campfire room. To enter a Campfire, open the Project (or Team or HQ) and click on the Campfire tool.
Scroll up in a chat window to view what you missed. When you want to add a comment, type your text at the bottom of the window and hit enter.
You can also drag and drop saved images, or paste image URLs into a chat line — perfect for all those cat and Beyoncé GIFs you need to share with the team.
To see all the files posted in a Campfire, look for the ••• menu in the upper right corner of that Campfire.
You'll then be able to browse everything uploaded to that particular Campfire!
If you need to delete or edit a message you posted, click on "•••" next to the time stamp above your post.
Click on the little red trash can to delete what you've posted or click on the pencil to edit what you've written:

You can turn on notifications so that you're notified when someone starts chatting in a Campfire that you're a part of. (More on how to set up those notifications!)
But, you won't receive a notification for every single new line item in that Campfire chat. You'll only receive push notifications if:
- You are @mentioned
- The chat has been idle for 6+ hours
You can read more on our philosophy around chat notifications in our piece on Group Chat, Group Stress.
Remove the Campfire tool
You can hide a tool from a Project, Team, or HQ if it's not needed. See if a clear space really does organize the mind!
