How Search Works on Qiqo
The administrator of a circle can create common tags. Members can add these tags to the files they upload and the articles they write to make them easier for other members to find.
When searching the resources in the circle, members can search by tag or keyword. The system performs a separate search on each word that you type into the search bar and returns items which have at least one match in their title, description, or tags.
Adding quotes to your search phrases does not affect the results. Searches are not case-sensitive.

Questions Related to "live events"
Can I host an online conference using Qiqo?
Absolutely. You can do this by using the live event tool. Schedule an event to last for a few hours. Think of the breakout tables as the different rooms where speakers would present during an in-person conference. You can re-use these breakout spaces for different topics after each session concludes. As the admin, start the event at the Main Table and have an assistant remain there to provide tech support as the conference continues, because that's where latecomers will arrive.
Yes, you and any of your circle's five admins can record a live event. Look for "Participate", "Admin Controls", and then "Join Audio/Video as Host" in your live event. You or the admins must be present to start the recording. Other members can request to start the recording when you're present if you have to jump to another circle. The recording is saved to your laptop and you later can upload it as a resource in your circle if you wish.
How do I add/remove breakout tables from a live event?
Look for "More Options" when editing/creating your event to set the number of breakout tables. You can set this number from 0 to 25. The site will perform a bit slower as the number of breakout tables increases, but this will not affect the audio/video communication which happens over Zoom.
How do I send emails to all those who RSVP’d to an event?
If you created an event or are the circle administrator, there is a "Write Email" button on the landing page for your event. This will email everyone who has RSVPd and everyone who attended, even if they didn't RSVP.
How do I display an image for an event? For an article?
To add an image to your article or event, look for "More Options" at the bottom and then the options to upload a file. You can choose any photo that is on your computer. To upload an online photo, first download it to your computer.
What is the difference between an in-person and an online event as far as QiqoChat is concerned?
If an event is happening on QiqoChat, then it happens through a tool called Zoom, which provides audio/video access. If you are posting an event which is not happening on Qiqo, then you are able to specify the direct link to the event so that people can RSVP there. The advantage of posting it on Qiqo is that it will be visible in the shared calendar and notifications will go out to all members of your circle.
How do I switch between the QiqoChat event screen and Zoom?
Qiqo and Zoom are two separate programs so one may cover the other. You can shrink each so that they both fit on the screen. Or to switch between these two programs, cse ALT+Tab on your PC (CMD+Tab on your Mac). Alternatively, you can change the size of the Zoom and Qiqo windows so that they sit side-by-side on the screen.
