We’re just starting our Clockwork rollout, and, although some folks have played 
with it, Google Talk is what we continue to use, at least for now.  One benefit 
of GTalk is that messages also appear on your phone (provided you have Hangouts 
installed), so, if someone messages me, I can see it, no matter where I am.

Hi Jamie,

We're not using it at Temple. We have Google email, which has a chat feature, 
so we tend to use that instead. I'd be curious to hear whether others have 
found a good use for the instant messaging in Clockwork.

Does anyone use the built in instant messaging system? It is pretty clunky and 
not very useful except to let you know when an appointment has arrived. Other 
than that it is cumbersome. What do others think?
