No sort on the “people” header
drives. me. bananas. all other chat apps are able to sort the people you chat with either by alpha or recent convo, etc. Instead hipchat is a random mess. it also randomly removes recent people i’ve chatted with. ? why? why is one person there who i spoke with a year ago, but not the person i chat with 1x/week? It takes swipes and active scanning then realizing they are not on the list, then you must start a new chat, then typing in the name to find them, then open and type a message. simplest update! please! for desktop & mobile! I use other chat apps whenever possible just bc this one feature is so frustrating.
Use Slack instead
I have to access multiple teams on HipChat that are created by others. I have to use different email addresses for the different groups, and yes I have verified this Atlassian repeatedly. Not too bad an issue on a regular computer as I use the web app instead. However, on iOS the web app redirects me to the iOS app which is already in use on one of teams. iOS will not allow me to download a second copy of the app, and I cannot access the web app, so basically I have to figure which team I need to access most.
I really wish the team admins would use Slack.
Forced to use this for work, coming from Skype. Hipchat is a flat downgrade in almost every possible aspect. I could go into detail about the missing features and inadequacies, but anyone using the app in a professional setting for more than 10 minutes could probably create a 20 slide deck outlining those things. Sad that Atlassian has decided to sunset this product in favor of hosted solutions. It has a lot of potential, but has not yet been fully realized.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
