@martin can you have a quick look :eyes:


I’ve tried to reproduce this locally with latest chat and latest tests-passed and I can’t for an admin user or for a regular user. After I refresh the page everything is still there and I can re-enable it.

Do you see any errors in the Developer console in Chrome? Do you have any further details about the type of user etc.?

I see the problem now, it wasn’t obvious to me from the gif in your PR but I can now reproduce:

  1. Uncheck the box and click save on the profile
  2. Refresh and see there is no chat
  3. Re-check the box and click save
  4. Refresh and see there is no chat and the box is still unchecked

Should be an easy fix.
