Options when you create a new room

If you click on "New Room...", a dialog box is displayed in which the basic characteristics of the room can be determined. Firstly you have to decide whether the room should be encrypted or not. Contents of unencrypted rooms can be found by the global search, while data in encrypted rooms will be encrypted directly in the browser and are not searchable. Furthermore, the room must be assigned a name.

The encryption of a room can not be changed subsequently.
