Pawscout has made it easier for you to communicate with fellow Pawscouters. Pawscout Direct Messaging works in two ways:
One-on-One threads with any Pawscouter
You can message any user by simply going to their profile and selecting the Message button towards the top of the screen. Your threads/pet chats will be displayed in your Notifications tab. Here, you can mute/unmute a chat, see members in your pet chat, and see photos sent in each chat.
Pet Chat Room
When you have added a Pet, and when a Pet Parent or Guardian has accepted your invitation for your pet, Pawscout will automatically create a chat room for all Pet Parents/Guardians associated with the pet.
Q: Can I delete myself from a Pet Chat Room?
A: No, not without withdrawing from being a pet parent/guardian. You can mute the chat if you don't want to receive notifications about this pet.
Q: Where can I find my Pet Chat Rooms and 1:1 threads?
- Notifications → Envelope icon top left → Pet Chat
- The Feed → Small envelope icon on the top left of the screen (and through a notification on screen when you receive a message)
- My Pets → Envelope icon on top of pet tile (group chats only)
- Pet Profile → Tags & Actions → Pet Group Chat (group chats only)
Q: Can I create a pet chat manually?
A: Group chats are only available to a specific pet’s Guardians and Pet Parents and are created automatically. Still, you can always message users individually by going to their profile and selecting the Message icon.
