    Hi Wes,

    I don't see any other message that goes along with your mockup but I know what you're getting at and that's very similar to how P2 is laid out.

    The main difference I can see though is that (I think) you're still displaying the tab bar at the same time as the left-side panel. Is that right? And if so, what's the rationale behind it?

    Hi Trevor,

    I had an entire message marked up and I don't see where it went. In any case, I was describing how we use Campfire for multiple projects at our company and we use the Propane app for mac to facilitate those campfire projects/sites.

    The only aspect of the program that made things cumbersome was switching between other chat/project rooms that weren't already opened or created, this being the rationale for having the left-side panel open, which could be closed or hidden via the view menu. Based on the previously attached mockup, the following feature requests to the app layout would include:

    • Combining the "chat lobby" window with the chat windows as the default and first tab so that the app is limited to this single window--keeping in line with one of the features listed on the propane web page, "Chat without the clutter."
    • Subsequent chat windows, which can be selected from the lobby side-panel slide-out menu, will open in new tabs adjacent to the main lobby tab.
