Creating a 1:1 Conversation:
Android: Add Contact and Create 1:1 conversation from Contacts Screen
Android: 1:1 or Group conversation
iOS: 1:1 or Group conversation
You can add contacts by clicking on "Contacts" or the address book icon on mobile devices and searching for their username. Tapping their username will create a new Wickr Conversation and add them to your Contacts list.
To make a group conversation, you must use the notepad/pen icon (iOS) or pen icon (Android) in the "Conversations" tab. After you have added your desired Contacts to the new Conversation, press "Create" to start the new conversation/group and add the username(s) to your Contacts list.
Add Contact and Create 1:1 conversation from Contacts Screen
On desktop clients, you can use either the hamburger "Menu->Contacts" or the address book icon at the bottom left to add a new Wickr Contact or search for current Contacts and create a 1:1 Conversation.
1:1 or Group Conversation:
Click the + sign in the "Conversations" tab, enter their username in the search field, and hit "Enter" to search. If Wickr finds the Contact, you can then click on the Contact and click "Create" to start a new 1:1 Conversation. Or you can search for more Wickr Contacts to add to your group conversation.
You can remove contacts on mobile or desktop clients by clicking/tapping their profile icon, and selecting the "Block" option.
CREATING A ROOM:
When creating a Wickr Pro Room on desktop, users will select the pen/pad symbol above the Room List, and select "Create Room." The next window for the Room details will be provided:
- Choose a Room name & Description (optional). Establish Room settings such as Expiration and BOR.
- If you are creating a Conversation or Room for the first time, you need to enter the user's Wickr Pro email address, or Wickr Me username - if they are on Wickr the results will show and you can add.
- Add users to the Room either through Contacts (usually outside your Wickr Pro Network or organization) or through your Team Directory (inside your Wickr Pro Network or organization)
- If you have team members/users in your Wickr Pro Network you will find them in your Team Directory in alphabetical order
After you create a Room you can always go back and make adjustments such as adding new users, setting new Expiration or BOR limits, etc. You simply choose the (i) info icon at the top of the Room. We always advise adding a second moderator, in case the initial moderator becomes unverified.
