Hello. How can we help?

How to send a Direct Message

Who can use this feature?
All users in Evertel can use DMs


Direct messages (DMs) are one-to-one conversations between you and another person. You can DM with people within your agency and also those outside your agency. Group direct messages (group DMs) are smaller discussions, outside of rooms, between you and up to five other people. DMs work well for one-off conversations that don’t need to involve an entire room.

Keep in Mind
It is important that work-related conversations happen in a secure and compliant platform like Evertel. You should refrain from using SMS Texting as it is highly unsecure. In addition, public messaging apps like WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Groupme, and others often violate public information laws and put yourself and your agency at significant legal risk.
