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

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!
