[m] ~ Matrix at envs.net#
Matrix is a free and open, secure, decentralized protocol for real-time communication, also known by the name of one of its clients, Element.
basic information about our Homeserver instance:
In recent years, the need for supporting digital tools for team collaboration has increased. A central tool is a team chat. According to Wikipedia, a chat refers to "electronic communication by means of written text in real time, usually via the Internet" (Source). With a messenger team members can make each other aware of current information and especially share links (hyperlinks / links) for further collaboration (e.g. for finding appointments, collaborative writing, planning events, editing data, code, mind maps,).

Questions and Contact#
The ideal is to deal with problems in a transparent way, from which all others can learn. This can be done by describing the situation in the ENVS main room - here problems and solutions can be discussed together:
#envs:envs.net- official channel for envs.net
#envs_german:envs.net- german speaking project channel
We have also two autojoin room's on our instance:
#home:envs.net- welcome room ~ for local matrix instance member only (unfederated)
#lounge:envs.net- hang out in the #lounge | ~ offtopic chat ~
For some anomalies you can try to empty the cache and reload everything:
Settings > Help & About > Clear Cache and reload
Current maintenance is announced in the matrix room #home:envs.net (unfederated) and #status:envs.net.
