How to use hipchat

I have a small group of international users who are trying to work on an art related project.  Uk, Au, US.

I need some simplified instructions to get us started.

Will each of us need to have our own membership?

Will we all use the same sign in name and password?

Can we keep chat open so people can reply when they are in daylight hours and others are in night time hours?

I would like to have a "Manual" to issue to all users.


Thank you,  Susan Holland  (moderately tech but over my head here.)

Hi Susan. Super cool you are planing to use Hipchat to work in a art project!

Yes, each one of the participants will need to have a account in HipChat. If you will be the administrator of this group, you can just create a new account in HipChat in -> Create a new team (you may be asked to create a first room, but this is not important).

After create you account, you can click in the Group admin link, Users and invite other participants to join your HipChat 'organization'.

Even when people are offline, you still can sent messages to them and they will see the messages when log in.

You can also create rooms to discuss specific topics with more than just one person.

Hipchat is really easy to use, but you can find something like a manual in
