WiscChat (Psi) - Saving Chat Conversations

Note: This document is for Psi users only. For more information about saving chat conversations with other clients, please review the client comparison.

Important: History information (chat conversation) between you and a contact is automatically saved on your workstation and not on our servers. Only chat room data is saved on our servers. We are currently working on options for getting this chat room history data to the owner of the chat room.

To change this setting:

  1. Within the 'General' menu, select Account Setup.
  2. Select your account and click on the Modify button.
  3. Within the "Account Properties" page, select the Account tab.
  4. Within the 'Settings' area, check or uncheck the box labeled Log message history and click the Save button.

Note: If you want to review the history of your conversation with a contact, right-click on the contact within your roster window:

history: contact sub menu

Select History from the sub-menu.

Note: The history data files are kept in your profile folder. Look for this data within:

  • "PsiData" folder
  • Users\\AppData\Roaming\Psi\profiles\default\history
  • Uusers\\psidata\profiles\default\history

There will be one file for each user with whom you have chatted. These files are viewable using a text editor. To delete the Psi chat history, simply delete the corresponding history file.
