MZ-Chat allows you to privately message your friends or clients through the Myzone app. If you are a club staff member, MZ-Chat is a powerful tool that allows you to communicate directly with your members and provide feedback before or after workouts.
Note: you can only send MZ-Chat messages to users you are connected to within the app.
Sending a Direct Message
To access your connections, tap Menu on the quick navigation bar at the bottom of the screen and select Connections/Groups.
Tap the 3 dots to the right of the connection's name, then tap on Open Chat.
You can also go directly to MZ-Chat from the Menu and search the connection you would like to begin a chat with.
Creating a Group Chat
You can create a group chat two ways. First, you can create group from the Connections/Groups menu.
Clicking the three dots next to the group name will allow you to:
The second option is to go to your Menu, select MZ-Chat, and choose the + icon at the top right.
From here, select Create MZ-Chat Group, type in the name of your group chat, then tap the checkmark in the top right-hand corner.
Use the search filter to find your group chat members. Tap their profile to add them to the chat group. Once complete, tap the checkmark in the top right-hand corner to create the group chat.
How to Add Friends to a Group Chat
To add more friends to a group chat, open the MZ-Chat message and click on the icon in the top right-hand corner of the message and pull the arrow on the right-hand side to access your connections list.
Scroll or search for your friends you wish to add to the group chat, then click the checkmark in the upper right-hand corner to add them.
NOTE: Only admins of the chat can add additional friends.
Managing Your MZ-Chat
Once you have started an MZ-Chat, you can update admins, edit the MZ-chat name, transfer ownership, or leave the group message completely.
Open the MZ-Chat message and click on the icon in the upper right-hand corner of the message.
Click on the 3 dots in the upper right-hand corner to open additional MZ-Chat options:
- Update Admins: granting admin access to other members of your chat group allows them to make changes to your chat as well, including the ability to add new members.
- Edit MZ-Chat allows you to edit the name of the group chat.
- Transfer Ownership allows you to assign someone else in the group chat and removes your admin access.
A yellow star next to someone's profile indicates they are the Admin of the chat.
To leave a group chat, click on the icon. Doing so will remove you from the chat group and you will no longer receive notifications of chatter activity.
How to Comment on a Connection's Workout
You can post a comment on a Myzone connection's workout from the app to let them know you see their effort and motivate them to continue.
From the Home page:
1. Scroll past your workout at the top.
2. Tap on the comment icon below your connection's graph.
3. Type your comment, then tap the send button. Your comment will appear on their move summary beneath their graph.
Comments are public, so their other connections will see your encouragement too!
How to Delete a Comment
From the Home feed, tap on your workout to get to your Move summary page. Scroll down to the comments and select the trashcan next to each comment to delete it from your move.
