When creating a new message in the Forum or editing an existing one, the editing window appears. It includes text formatting elements, the text to be edited, and a list of files attached to the message.
To write a response to a previously created message, click on the Reply button in the header of the message that you are writing a response to (or activate the respective context menu item). The window for creating a new message will appear.
While creating a new message or editing an existing one, you can change its type; to do so, use the Type drop-down list above the text input field.
At the top, there is the Jump to the post button, which synchronizes the list of tasks in the Navigator and in the Forum message feeds, setting them to the position where the message that is being edited is displayed. Quote button copies the selected message into the new one.
There are buttons on the right vertical toolbar to manipulate file attachments (the same functions are visible if you right click on attachments area). Using these buttons, you can add one or more files, add links to files, paste the contents of the clipboard as an attachment, create a shortcut or video, delete a file, or add a comment to it. The Cerebro system offers the function of archiving entire directories or groups of files before sending them as part of a message.
There is a Visible for clients switch at the bottom of the window, which makes it possible to set which messages will be visible to your company’s clients — in case they don’t need to see all the working correspondence for the project but may be interested only in certain key messages. The Subscribe button is also located here, it allows the task creator to monitor changes in it and adds the task to his Inbox tab. To the right of the Subscribe button is a star-shaped Add to Favorites button, used to create a useful selection of favorite tasks.
There is also a drop-down list at the bottom, which makes it possible to switch the status of the task when sending a message to the Forum.
In the center of the window there is a field for adding hashtags. Cerebro also has a built-in spell check function with the possibility of language selection. To see it, right-click the empty text area and tick Enable spell check.
Once your message is sent, your report also becomes immediately visible to other participants. Thus, the Cerebro system facilitates working correspondence on the project.
