All About Topic
Hello! This is Jessica from the CX team.
What is the first thing you do after making a team on JANDI?
You set up a topic for the team. If you have a good ‘topic’, which is the foundation of JANDI, all members of the team can use it easily.
In this article, we will share the definition, arrangement, and example cases of using topics.
* Topic vs. Chat
JANDI has two different types of chat rooms. Topic and Chat.
- Topic is a group chat rooms created by subject, such as departments or projects.
- Chat is a 1:1 or group chat room that are created by multiple people without subject matter. (Max 10 ppl)
* Chat View vs. Board View
JANDI provides two view types of topics: Chat View and Board View.
- Chat View topic is useful for ongoing discussions on specific topics
e.g. by department or project, fast and live conversation
- Board View topic is in the form of postings and useful for one-sided delivery or announcement.
e.g. announcements, meeting notes, proposals.
*Board View topics are only available in paid plans.

* Topic Naming
Creating in-house rules for topic naming in advance makes it easy to manage topics. Because it’s easy to predict the subject of topic and team members will feel comfortable to join topics related to their work.
- Symbols (ex.brackets, numbering) allow you to organize your topic list according to importance.
- Please note that JANDI topic folder is a personal setting and will not be shared.
