By popular demand, Meetup now offers more flexibility in choosing comments or chat for your upcoming events.
Scroll down the event scheduler and select which mode of event communications you prefer. You must select at least one communication tool to be on.
Note: It’s currently only possible to choose communication tools when creating an event on your desktop or mobile web browser.
Event comments is the more familiar option, which allows attendees to post messages on the event homepage. Event chat is a newer communications feature, empowering attendees to share and reply to messages in real time. Chat also offers more options for uploading attachments and applying emojis.
Once your event is saved or published, you cannot switch between comments or chat. This applies to all events in a series. If you’d like to make adjustments between event comments or event chat for a series of repeating events, create a new series and configure the event communication settings to your preference.
