I want to add all of my contacts to the chat list. I have selected "Show in chat list:">All Contacts, but not all of my contacts are showing there. How do I do it?
I am doing that with Gtalk and Excel:
by exporting all contacts to
and edit them in Excel and add "," to the right column
from Excel save this as text file
and by deleting
LFall contacts save all contacts to 1 line
copy and paste them to next step
I click on Add button in Gtalk
The Show in chat list: -> All Contacts refers to the contacts that are already in your Gtalk list, not to all your Gmail contacts.
Besides, to add a contact to chat, it has to have a Gmail account, otherwise it will not work. You can add a non Gmail contact to your chat list by sending an invitation to him/her, but he/she will just be invited to open a Gmail account.
