  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am unaware of the feature for bookmarking a chat on Stack Overflow. I saw some users having a bookmark of a particular part of chat in the room. So, from where can we bookmark a particular part of chat?

It's explained in the Chat FAQ, in the Can I share a link to a specific message? Or range of messages? section:

Sure; if you click the menu button against any message, you get the "permalink" option:

This gives you a link directly to that message, highlighting that message for clarity. If you want to create a link to a group of messages, you can bookmark a block of conversation by choosing "create new bookmark" from the room menu:

Then just follow the simple on-screen instructions to select the messages you want to include. You need at least 100 reputation to create a new bookmark.

Where can we find a bookmark after we create it? – Lalit Poptani Dec 31 '11 at 5:54
@LalitPoptani It's on the room's info page (there's a link in the right sidebar), in the "Conversations" tab – Michael Mrozek Dec 31 '11 at 5:57
  1. Hover over a chat message and click the small arrow that appears.

  2. There will be a link at the top of the pop-up that appears. Use your browser to bookmark this link.

permalink to chat message
