Creating a group in Fuze is easy, and groups are very useful if you want to start a conversation between a few people or form a themed discussion.

  1. Click Search in the Fuze toolbar. The Search screen is displayed.

  4. In the search results, click on the contact row to add the contact to the group. When a contact is added to the group, the member count increases and their name is displayed in the Members area. To remove a member from the group, click the X beside their name in the Members area.
