What is direct message?

Direct message allows you to have private communication with someone without creating a topic. (Please note this feature does not support communication with a bot.)

Direct message is useful for sending confidential information such as passwords and financial reports.

View direct messages by opening the app and selecting the direct message icon from the left hand sidebar. The list will include users that you have communicated with using direct message.
