Viewing chat history

Chat history is enabled in the settings in order to let you view text chat sessions at a later time.

The chat history will be saved on your computer and cannot be viewed if you sign in from a different computer.


To view chat history:

  1. In order to view chat history, the Save chat history checkbox must be selected in the General settings window. After text chatting, select History from the ooVoo menu and select Chat history. The chat history window appears.
    You can delete all chat history records from the General settings window.
  2. Select your name or another contact you chatted with from the Contact field. The text chat history appears.
    To find the contact in the drop-down list quickly, type the first characters of the contact's name in the select contact field and this will cause contacts with similar names to appear.
  3. From the View field, select the amount of days of history you want to display. You can type unique words in the 'Find' field and search for the text. If this text was used more than once, click Next to advance to the next row.
  4. You can save the text chat history for this contact to a text file by clicking Save as.
    The file extension will be .txt, so make sure you select this file type in the file window in order to find the file.

    To select more than one row, press the Ctrl keyboard key to select specific rows or the Shift keyboard key to select a group of rows.
