The Admin Dialog is always opened for the currently selected channel, unless there is no channel open (which is the case just after you started Chatty), in which case it will always be opened for your own channel, which is derived from your configured account name.
The Status-Tab lets you view and change the title and game of your channel.
The information is loaded when you open the dialog and when you press the
reload-Button. If others may have changed the info in the meantime,

When you select a game, another dialog will open where you should enter
part of the name of the game in the search field and hit Enter
or click the
Search-Button to find the correct name, which
you can then select. You can also just use the name you entered yourself,

the correct category on Twitch.

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

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

the channel that the Admin Dialog was opened on (instead of the currently
active channel) and so on.
