right-clicking on the channel to open the context menu and choose
The Admin Dialog is always opened for the currently active channel, unless there is no channel open (which is the case just after you started Chatty), in which case it will open for your own channel (you login with). The channel is automatically changed to the currently active channel unless the "Channel - Fixed" option is enabled in the Admin Dialog context menu (right-click on an empty space in the Admin Dialog).
The Admin Dialog requires the following access:
If some access is missing, please go to
Main - Account in
the main menu and check for the access you need.
The Status-Tab lets you view and (if you have access) change some stream settings.
Simply enter the stream title you want to use in the input field.
Select game to open a dialog where you can search for
a game (and other categories like Creative) and also add games to
Tags are an additional categorization for streams. You can select up to five tags and also add tags to favorites.
Status Presets allow you to store the current title, game and tags
for later use. A status is automatically added every time you press the
Update button (can be disabled in the History settings),
but will be removed after some time of not being used. You can also add
the current status to the favorites by pressing the
button, which means it is never automatically removed from the Status
In the Presets dialog there are different ways to use an entry:

If you are partnered with Twitch, you can run commercials on your channel here (even if you are not partnered it may run a commercial). Click on the appropriate button to try to run a commercial of the given length.
Last run time shows when a commercial was last run
through Chatty (this session).
There are two different ways of scheduling a commercial, either running
a single commerical on a delay or repeating running a commercial on a delay.
Select either or both options and then press a
button to schedule the commercial. Press the same button again to cancel the
scheduled commercial. Click a button of another length to change the length
of the commercial while keeping it on schedule. Scheduled commercials are
not completely exact, they may be run a few sceonds too late.
If you have

scheduled to run after the specified time. If you have

to work, they just both use the same time as delay.
The time for the delay will be interpreted as seconds by default, but you
can also specify minutes. Examples:
30 (30 seconds),
120s (2 minutes).
If you have downloaded the appropriate version of Chatty (the one with
"hotkey" in the .zip filename, Windows only), you can define a global hotkey
to run 30s commercials on the channel you currently have open. The hotkey
can be defined on the
Commercials tab in the Admin Dialog
(don't forget to press
Set to actually set it).
If you have the Admin Dialog open on the
then executing the hotkey will simulate a click on the 30s button, with all
the implications like being able to use a delay, running the commercial on
the channel that the Admin Dialog was opened on (instead of the currently
active channel) and so on.
