5 Quick Tips to Get You Zinc’ing Like a Pro


5 Quick Tips to Get You Zinc’ing Like a Pro

We like to talk about how easy Zinc is to use, but sometimes it’s nice to have someone show you the way. So, we’ve assembled 5 quick tips to get you Zinc’ing like a pro. 


  1. Easily manage notifications and messages 

Headed off shift and want to mute notifications? Finished with a conversation and want to remove it from your view? Zinc has you covered!

To see your options: Swipe left on a message if using the iOS app, or simply tap and hold a message if on the Zinc Android app. From here, you can choose to:

  • Mark a message read or unread
  • Mute notifications
  • Archive a message 


  1. Make conversations more fun with emojis

Let’s face it, who doesn’t love emojis? They are perfect for those moments when words aren’t enough - like closing a big deal or welcoming a new hire. So, adding emojis to conversations is a breeze. You can use the emoji keyboard on your smartphone or Zinc’s built in emoji keyboard on the desktop app. 


  1. Add content to conversations with file sharing 

On the job and need a document? In the mobile app, tap the file icon and easily share files from your favorite services like Box, Dropbox and Google Drive. 

Using the web or desktop app? Quickly drag and drop files on your computer into a Zinc message for instant file sharing! No need to be connected to other apps. 


  1. Use groups to stay connected with the people you need to get work done

We know your work often entails interacting with people outside your company, like distributors or partners. Groups let you easily communicate with the people you need, regardless of their company. 

Easily create groups with external members in the app or create and manage an Official Group via the Admin Console. 


  1. Manage your group participation 

Work moves fast. We know it’s important to be able to quickly add or remove people from ongoing discussions based on the task at hand. 

Tap the Group Name in a conversation to bring up the group settings. Here you can quickly add or remove members, or if you need to step out of a group, you can do that too.
