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.

Campfire Features

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 grab someone’s attention in Campfire, you can  @mention them by typing the @ symbol followed by their name. They’ll receive a notification for the mention.

To use emoji, click control + command + space bar on a Mac to pull up the emoji picker. On Windows 10, click the Windows key + ; to pull up emoji. Older versions of Windows will work too. Check out our  emoji pro tips! 👍

To stay current in specific Campfires, click Follow at the top right of the window.

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!

Delete a Campfire Post

If you need to delete a post, click on "•••" next to the time stamp above your post.

A red trash can will appear next to your post! Click on that to delete the post. 

Note: you can only delete your own posts. Your posts will disappear from everyone's view.

Add Code to a Campfire or Ping

To add code in a chat, you'll start your message with  /code log | <content>

Here's how it will look when you post your message: 

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!
