Trying to set up chat but having trouble with the workflow and I dont know if this is me not seeing the setting or if its just an overlooking design opportunity.
When I have my chat window set up on the main screen that click the chat window to reveal it and are presented a message:
"You must login to participate in chat"
Then then must figure out what symbol represents the login dropdown menu item and then click "login" to then reveal the login form of which they then must click their mouse in the name field and then can start typing....
How do I make it so that if a new user is coming to chat for the first time and they are not logged in, they can click the chat window to reveal the chat window which will recognize if they are not logged in and automatically show the login form (the username email) with the cursor focus being in the username so they can immediately start typing.
1. One click to typing in username
1 one click to reveal
2 read instructions
3 find and click dropdownmenu
4 click login
5. click username field
Thoughts? Chat is all about being a positive non-frustrating easy user experience, i feel like this is important towards creating a smooth initial experience.
Let me know your thoughts or if I am just missing the setting, thanks!
