Creating a Group

If you want to organize your contacts, you can create groups like "club" or "close friends" and put your contacts into them.

In addition to the pre-defined groups ("Friends", "Family" and "Co-workers"), you can create a number of custom groups.

How to create a new group

  1. Click the New Group button at the top left.

  2. Give the group a name and click Save to confirm.
  3. Click the Add more Contacts link.
  4. In the contact list (on the left), activate the check boxes of all contacts you want to add. You can restrict the list by filtering or using the search function.
  5. Click the Save button on the right to confirm your selection.
Now you can use your new group. You can add new contacts to the group or remove them from the group at any time.
