How do I write a message to other users?

Use project workspaces to communicate with other AGORA users. You can get in touch with another member of a project workspace – or several members at the same time.

Click on the “Members” rubric from the corresponding workspace,. You will then see a list of all the people who have joined this workspace. Select the person or people that you want to send a message to by clicking on the tick box next to their name, and then select the option “send e-mail” from the drop down menu below. If you want to send a message to all workspace members, click the box marked “[All]” to select all the names on the list automatically. Confirm by pressing “Apply.

If you want to send an e-mail to one particular group in the workspace, click on the rubric “Groups” and then simply click the box “Send e-mail to group”. And here it’s also possible to send an e-mail to all members. 

In both cases, an editor page will open with a text line for the subject and a text field for your message. After you have filled these in, click on “send e-mail”. Your message will then be sent to the people you selected via e-mail.

Note: AGORA sends such e-mails to the e-mail addresses that are stored in the users’ profile settings. So please make sure that the e-mail address you provide is one that is checked regularly. You can find the grey CommSy-Bar at the top of every page where you can access your profile settings by clicking the link with your name. The link opens a pop-up window, from where you can change your personal details and settings. You will find the entry field for your e-mail address below the second tab “User data”. Confirm each change by pressing “Save preferences” at the bottom of the page.
