factchat editor
Platforms with factchat have a factchat editor in the p-admin interface. The factchat editor allows you to save factchat conversations in tables. This way, evaluation and documentation of individual discussions should become much easier for you. Furthermore, you can delete individual messages (postings) from the factchat with the help of the factchat editor.

In order to display the factchat history, proceed as follows:

|1| Choose "" from the main menu.

|2| Click on the "modify"-button in the row "factchat".

|3| A selection window , with several options to choose from, opens:

  1. Which period of time should be displayed?
    The fields are automatically filled in with the current date. You have to adjust them in the given format according to your needs.

  2. Which message details would you like to display?
    The most important details are automatically checked for you. The selection can be adapted accordingly.

    The following fields can be selected:

    ID of the message: unique number of the posting
    Date when posted: date and time of the message
    Username of the user: username of the author
    Message body (text): text of the message
    Coordinates posted: coordinates of the message (in the grey chat field)
    Color of the message: background color of the message

We do not recommend choosing "Check this to download the factchat history in excel csv format" when using the factchat editor for the first time.
