Group powers are powers that can be assigned to a chat group. Generally, these powers give chat groups extra functions or smilies that normally would not be available. Group powers cannot be traded when they are assigned to your chat. Additionally, group powers can be both Limited or Unlimited.
Assigning a group power
To assign a group power, first acquire the power you want, then go to the chat you wish to assign it to. Type the power smiley into the chat, e.g. "(redirect)", click on the smiley that appears, and click the "Assign" button on the pop-up window. The power will then be assigned to the group.
Note: Presently, this must be done on Flash (not HTML5 chats).
Activating a group power
For assigned powers to function on your group, a main owner will need to activate the power in the Edit Group settings. To access the Edit Group settings, hover over "group" at the top right of your chat and click "customize". Alternatively, click "Edit Your Chat", which is above the "Sign Out"/"Sign In" button. Then, enter your chat group's password or, as you are a main owner, your account password. Then, click the "group powers" tab.
The "group powers" tab allows you to activate and deactivate group powers on your chat and edit their settings. You can filter between assigned and/or unassigned powers by power name or ID. To activate or deactivate an assigned power, check the tickbox next to the power name and then click "save" at the bottom of the page. Refresh the chat and you will have the group power successfully activated or deactivated. If a power is not assigned, it cannot be activated. The total number of assigned powers on your group is displayed above the search bar. You can view the ID number of the user who assigned each power by hovering over the "Assigned by" text.
You can import/export your power configuration settings in a .xatp file format. There must be at least one customized value for the settings to be exported. Default settings cannot be exported, nor can you import the settings of a power that is not assigned to your group.
There is also an option to activate/deactivate all assigned group powers at once, according to your search and filter. This option is located below the search bar when viewing "assigned" or "assigned + unassigned" powers.
Un-assigning a group power
To un-assign a group power, go to the chat it is assigned to and type the power into the chat, click on the smiley and click "Unassign". If you have forgotten the chat it is assigned to, log in to your account and click the "group" tab on the user account management page. Here you will see the group power name followed by "Group1," which is the chat the power is assigned to. Clicking on "Group1" will lead you to the chat for you to un-assign.
Un-assigning a group power on a deleted / redirected chat
If you had a group power assigned to a chat that is now deleted or redirected, follow the steps below to help you un-assign your power.
1. Attempt to use the /go command. Go to any chat and type /go CHATNAME and see if you are able to connect to the deleted chat. If not, go to the next step.
2. Copy the following link "https://www.xatech.com/web_gear/chat/chat.swf?id=IDHERE" and replace IDHERE with the deleted chat's ID. To get the ID of the deleted chat, log in and click the "group" tab on the user account management page. Right-click on the group it is assigned to and select "Copy Link Address". Paste the link into your browser's URL bar and copy just the numbers and insert them into the link above. For example, if your chat link is https://xat.com/xat12345678, your chat ID number is 12345678.
