Customized sidebar

We all enjoy customizing our workspaces in the office, therefore we wanted to give the opportunity to our Pumble users to customize their online workspaces as well.

Pumble offers you to customize your sidebar with these two options:

  • Move the order of the channels or DM’s (direct messages)
  • Create custom sections for channels

Order of the channels

If you have a large amount of channels, we suggest using this feature to put the channels you are using the most frequently on the top of your list of channels.

To set this up, click on the name of the channel and simply drag it to the spot you want that channel to be placed at.

Custom sections

Sections are made for easier orientation across channels or direct messages. They are created in order to group similar channels and DM’s. These sections are visible only to the user that makes the sections.

To create a custom setting, please click on the 3 dots menu next to the “Channels” or “Direct messages” section. Choose “Create section”.

This could be useful if you want to create sections for multiple chats with users within one working group.

Example of sections

Moving channels/DM's to sections

The easiest way for moving channels or DM's is to drag and drop any conversation to a section from your sidebar.

• If you wish to move a channel/DM to a existing section:

Right click > Move Channel > Choose the name of the section from the menu

• If you wish to move a channel/DM to a non existing section:

Right click > Move Channel > Move to new section

Note: You can follow same steps when you want to remove a conversation from sections.

Renaming and Deleting sections

To rename (delete) a section, simply press a right click button on the section's name and choose "Rename" (Delete).

Pop up window will open where you can type a new name and than confirm it by clicking on purple button "Rename" or "Delete".

Order of the sections

As with the channels and direct messages, you can also change the order of sections.

To achieve that click on the section and drag it to the desired spot.

Use cases

For direct messages you can create a section “Developers” where you will find your private chats with every user that is for example a Developer. When you want to chat with some of the Developers in private chat, this will help you to find the specific person easier.

For channels you can create a section “Planning teams” where you will put all channels that are used for planning activities for your projects. When you want to post something in some of those channels, you will be able to find the channel easier.
