WiaChat (web application) works in pair with WiaChat mobile app. The web application is designed for an operator, the mobile one is designed for a driver. The web application supports sending messages as well as files of any type, while the mobile app supports sending messages and images.
WiaChat interface consists of two key elements: drivers list and chat.
The left panel provides a list of available drivers. Here you can choose a message recipient. To find a necessary driver, use a dynamic search situated above the drivers list. Moreover, you can sort the list by using the corresponding icons to the right of the search field (sorting by name, time, unread or undelivered messages). If a message is not delivered, then a special sign (!) to the right of a driver name informs you about it.
The right panel contains a chat and a message input field. A message can be added together with a file or location (address|coordinates). Click on the ‘paper clip’ icon, in the system dialog select the required files and press OK. Besides, files can be dragged from the folder into the chat dialog. To attach a location, click on the ‘map mark’ icon, indicate a required place on the map, and press ‘Add position’.
Chat supports the possibility of marking important messages. To do so, click on the ‘star’ to the left of a message. Later, marked messages can be easily found using the corresponding filter (above the chat).
The system provides a possibility for a quick search of messages in the chat history. A search can be implemented either by words in a message or by name of an attached file. The search field is situated above the chat. Moreover, messages can be filtered by their importance or by an availability of files attached. The corresponding filters are situated to the right of the search field.
Chat with a driver can be saved in XML format. To do so, click the corresponding icon above the messages filter.
Any attached file can be saved on your computer. To do so, click 'paper clip' icon to the right of a necessary file in a chat history.
