Move or Copy and Paste Contacts

In the Communicator Contact List, you can drag and drop contacts to move them from one group to another, You can also copy and paste contacts between groups. In addition, you can drag contacts between the Contact List to the Participant List in the Conversation window.

Note: In Communicator 2007 R2, you may also want to display the Team-Call Group or the Delegates group in your Contact List. These groups are related to your Call Forwarding settings. You cannot drag and drop contacts into or out of these two groups, because these are advanced settings that need to be configured in the Call Forwarding Settings dialog box. If you try to drag a contact into one of these groups, a message will appear asking if you want to open the Call Forwarding Settings dialog box.

  • Drag the contact from one group and drop it into another. You can also select multiple contacts by holding the CTRL key and then clicking the contacts you want to drag.

    Note: Moving a contact from one group to another can have different implications depending upon the view applied in the Office Communicator main window. If the Contacts List view is applied, you can move contacts from one group to another without changing access levels for the contacts. If you move contacts in the Access Levels view or Access Levels Management view, however, you change the permissions users have on your presence information. For more information about access levels, see Presence FAQ - Communicator.
