Miscellaneous Settings
These settings are mainly for trouble-shooting if you are experiencing problems. Most likely you will never have to touch these settings, but here's what they do...
  • Log Level: The level of the log that records what's happening with BeejiveIM. Don't worry, this log stays on your phone unless you manually send it to us.
  • Server: If you need to point to a specific BeejiveIM server, this is where that value goes. Default is to leave it empty.
