Direct Messages

Collaboration and communication go hand-in-hand. Learn how to use direct messaging and stay in the know.

The direct messaging feature in Link makes communicating easy. The conversations about the items stored in Link should be taken care of in a quick and secure fashion. That's why you can use the direct message tool to have a quick conversation with any of your connections. 


Similar to a text message, the messaging feature allows you to make group messages or add attachments. The feature also includes time stamps on every message so you can stay on top of important conversations. 

To Send a Message:


From the home dashboard, locate the messages icon on the menu bar on the left side of the page.
