Recent Room History Settings

Your chat service includes the ability to generate and display Recent Room History in your Chat Room. When this feature is turned on, all chat text within the main chat window is written to a live transcript. When a user enters into the chat room they have the opportunity to view what they might have missed prior to entering the room.

These live transcripts are available to room users for up to 1000 stored messages and/or 7 days. These settings can be configured or turn off. The Recent Room History information is dynamic by nature and is NOT stored on the server in the transcript area.
