Hello,

 

I have a couple of chats opened with various users of my company. Mainly these are people to people chats.

I would need to add other users in some discussions, but this seems not always possible:

  • in a one to one discussion, if I click on the button 'Add people', this will automatically open a new chat, the new person is not added to the existing discussion
  • in a discussion with already more than 2 users, 'Add people' will add the new user in the current discussion.

Can you confirm that in order to add more people to an already existing discussion, this discussion should be opened with 3 people at least despite what, adding a new user to a one to one discussion will always create a new tread?

 

Thanks for the support

Hi Cristophe!

Currently, you can include chat history only when adding someone to a group chat (not a one-on-one chat).

Hi,

 

Thanks for the quick answer.

This means that there is no possibility to "upgrade" a private (one to one) chat to a group chat.

 

Is such a possibility foreseen for the future?

Solution

According to the Office 365 Roadmap a feature named 24200 seems to be "In Development". Lets hope that will solve it.

Thanks again.

This Functionality works already or not?
