Create multiple rooms for your live events

With Rumbletalk, you can create one or many rooms. This is useful for creating topic-based communities as well as using it in live events.

In live events, you might have a large number of participants. Sometimes, one room is not enough or too crowded. You need the option to split your event participants to many rooms (this is easy with Rumbletalk’s create room option).

At the beginning of an event, the audience is in one big chat room. After that, they can be distributed to different chat rooms.

Creating multiple chat rooms

It is easy to create multiple chat rooms. To create more than one room, simply use one of the two:

  • Using the admin panel to create rooms
  • Using REST API to create rooms.

Using the admin panel is the easiest way, you log-in to your admin panel. Then, you create a new chat room.

The number of chat rooms you can create is shown below your chat on your admin panel. That’s your account plan. If you want to add more chat rooms, then you need to upgrade your account.

The second option is using REST API. This option lets you integrate the creation of chat rooms using an API call (you will need a developer for that).

When you need more rooms, you need first to upgrade your account. You can upgrade your account by clicking the Get more or Upgrade your plan.

An account holder can add a maximum of 12 rooms at the start. If you need more rooms for your live event, then you need to contact us and we will do it for you.

Also, consider checking out the different pricing models if you’re new to the platform.

Tricks in adding a chat room

Another option to create a new room is to duplicate an existing one, this will save you a lot of time.

In duplicating a chat room, you can copy everything, from design to banned IP addresses. It’s that handy.

If you want to save time, you can use this feature rather than adding everything manually.

To duplicate a chat room, just click the icon seen in the example below. You can see it on the right-hand side of your admin panel.

events

Then, choose a name for your new chat room. For advanced options, you can choose to copy the following:

  1. Chat settings
  2. Design
  3. Banned IP addresses
  4. Monetize
events

Chat settings refer to your basic chat settings. Design is for the theme or skins of your chat. For banned IP addresses, these refer to the list of banned IPs. Lastly, monetize refers to your chat’s monetization settings, i.e., paywall, donations, and private payment requests.

Here’s an example of how it would look like if you duplicated a chat. In this example, only the design was not duplicated from the other chat room. Therefore, it’s easier to distinguish chat rooms.

This is the original chat room.

Creating a mass number of rooms can be done easily using the API.

Take your convention online with a chat platform

In the past, hosting a convention was complex and expensive. Now, it is common to take your convention online. Why online? You can save on different costs and save time to produce everything.

A chat platform can give you a solution for taking your convention online. What it means is that you add a convention chat into your website or use a minisite, where you can host your convention.

See how you can transition your in-person convention online with a chat platform.

Different chat types you can use for your convention online

Conventions vary from their usage. Conventions can be meetings, town halls, conferences, discussions, Q&As, or more. Since conventions have many types, you also need different chat types to choose from.

Currently, there are three chat types, which are group chat, expert’s chat, and moderated chat. Each has its own paid options where you can add paid access.

For a convention, we recommend using group chat and moderated chat. Let’s take a look at each one.

Group chat

Group chat is a normal chat that you can use on a daily basis. Everyone can chat without limits. The group chat is usually used for meetings or discussions where everyone can share their insights.

convention online

Since anyone can share their opinions, they can also share files, images, or audio/video messages in the group chat.

Want to discuss something in private? Private chats are also available in the group chat. In there, you can hold one-on-one video calls with other users in the group chat.

Moderated chat

The moderated chat is another chat type made for conventions. You can use the moderated chat for Q&As or any other convention that needs moderation.

As the moderated chat lets admins pre-approve messages before they get seen by all chatters, the admins then act as the chat moderators.

Admins are the only ones who will see every message sent in the chat room.

q&a live session

Non-admin users can send in their questions. However, they will not see other users’ questions unless the admins have approved it.

moderated chat

So, if you need a chat companion for your Q&A convention, try using the moderated chat. It will keep incoming messages in check and spam/trolls will not have a chance to enter the conversation.

Add chat rooms for your convention online

Have a huge convention online? Add more chat rooms! We allow users to upgrade their chats if they want to.

Each user can add up to 12 more chat rooms normally. If you want to add more, then contact us. We will manually add it for you depending on your convention.

Also, you can add chat rooms on one page. This means that you can hold a huge convention with multiple rooms. Each room can have a dedicated topic or speaker.

Taking your in-person convention online

As you reach the end of this blog, we hope you took some notes for your next convention online. See how easy it is to transition?

Additionally, conventions don’t have to be costly. Therefore, it’s your choice to grab the chance to hold your future events online.

Especially in digital times, online conventions might even be bigger than in-person ones. Furthermore, you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home.

Try it for yourself and see the difference.

The way to schedule a chat

In a way, we’re all busy with our daily lives. Not everyone can stay in a chat 24/7. Many customers are asking us how to schedule a chat.
We try to summarize the options you have using the RumbleTalk chat platform.

Take the chat offline

When you’re not around, you can take your chat offline. No one can enter the chat room. The chat will show a message that it’s currently offline.

offline

  • To take your chat offline, go to your admin panel.
  • Choose Chat Operations.
  • Click Chat status.
  • It will then verify if you want to take the chat offline. Choose Yes, take the chat offline.

Schedule a chat

Now that you know how to take your chat offline, this means that you can add a special message with a date, e.g., schedule a chat.

Did you see that you can add an offline message in the Chat operations option? What does this mean?

It means that you can leave a message for users who visited your chat room while it’s offline. In that way, they will know when the chat will be online again.

You can schedule a chat by doing this. Add a message that the chat room will be open for all on your chosen time. You can do this every day or for days that you’re just too busy.

As long as your chat is offline, you can leave details on when you’ll get back.

Leave contact details

While your chat is offline, users cannot reach you. Therefore, you should leave your contact details just in case there’s an emergency.

When you chat is offline, you can show a contact form where your users can reach you.

You should also leave an email address. When the chat is offline and the lead form is displayed, this email address will receive the lead information.

Chats, meetings, and more

Scheduling is not only for chats, but you can also use it for meetings, discussions, and live events. As long as you have a specific time that you want to open your chat to chatters, scheduling a chat is possible.
