Communicate With Other Team Members

Diode Drive is collaborative software, so communication with other Team Members is important. That's why Diode Drive comes with its own chat function where you can chat with other Team Members in your shared Zone.

Diode Drive's chat is fully end-to-end encrypted and no messages or content is stored anywhere in the cloud.

Check out the video below, or continue reading the article, to learn more about Diode Drive's chat functionality:

  1. Setup Diode Drive on your main computer

If you have not already setup Diode Drive, follow the instructions in this article.

After you've completed those steps, you will have Diode Drive installed on your computer with your first Zone.

  1. Invite another Team Member to a Zone

Utilizing the chat function requires you to have invited another Team Member to your Zone.

If you have not yet invited another Team Member, follow the instructions in this article on how to do so.

  1. Open the shared Zone

Click on a Zone that you have invited another Team Member to.

  1. Click on the name of a Team Member

Clicking on the name of a Team Member will open a window with a chat session for that user.

  1. In order to start chatting, click on the message input box at the bottom of the app and start typing your message. To send your message, hit the Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac) key, or click the orange arrow icon on the right.

  • Please note that BOTH members need to be online in order to receive messages. The receiving member can use a linked device (eg. a Raspberry Pi) to save messages for them, but otherwise messages will send but not be received until both Team Members are online at the same time.
