1. Neat Bitrix24 Chat Shortcut: your desktop app chat can be viewed in a separate browser page. Simply add desktop_app/ at the end of your intranet name link ( so that the full address will look like https:// yourcompany.bitrix24.com /desktop_app/ ) You don't need to have the desktop app installed to try this option!
