Adding Participants to a Conversation
If you are in an existing group chat, you can add other participants to it. If you are in a conversation
with one other person, and you want to add other participants, you can create a new group chat consisting of you,
the other person in the conversation, and the new participants.
Note: The maximum number of participants in a conversation is 50.
In your conversation or group chat, click the Add link at the bottom left.
From the popup menu that appears, select Create Group Chat
if you are in a conversation, or select Add Participant
if you are already in a group chat.
One of the following appears:
- If you are adding a participant to a group chat that has a patient context,
a panel appears that contains two tabs: a Care Team tab that enables you to
add a patient care team member to the conversation, and a Staff tab that
enables you to add any staff member to the conversation.
For all other group chats and conversations, a panel appears that enables
you to add any staff member to the conversation.
If you are in a group chat with a patient context, and you want to add a care
team member to the chat, click the Care Team tab and click the names of the
care team members that you want to add.
If you want to add one or more staff members to the chat,
click the Staff tab if you are in a group chat with a patient context,
and then do any or all of the following:
Click a group name to display the members of the group. If the group contains subgroups, click a subgroup name to
display its members. Click the name of a member to add him or her
to the group chat.
Click the name of a favorite to add this user to the group chat.
In the Search box, type two or more characters.
A list of groups and users that match your search text appears. In this list, do one of the following:
Click Add to add the new users to the existing group chat. If
you are in a 1-on-1 conversation, a new group chat is created that contains
the user in the 1-on-1 conversation and the new users that you have just added.
