Rocket Chat - Setting up the desktop app for RocketChat

Many users will prefer to use the Rocket Chat desktop app, either because they find its performance more stable or because they can leave it open in the background while using their web browser without having to jump between browser tabs. 

To activate the Rocket Chat desktop app, follow the following steps:

1) Download the Rocket Chat desktop app

There are separate versions for Apple OS, Windows and Linux.

2) Enter the following URL when asked for your server: rc.seekingalpha.com

Click "Connect"

3) Logging in. You will need the email address and password you signed up for seekingalpha.com with.

The steps are slightly different here depending on whether you have a Gmail or non-Gmail email account. 

A) For non-Gmail users, enter the email address you signed up for seekingalpha.com with. Below where you enter your email address, enter the same password that you use to log into seekingalpha.com.

Click "Login". You will now have access to all of your Marketplace chat rooms.

B) Gmail users: Click the grey "G"  button and follow the instructions there, entering your Gmail email address you signed up for seekingalpha.com with and your Gmail email password. 

You will now have access to all of your Marketplace chat rooms.
