No Groups in Mac 5.3

[ Edited ]

Seriously, how can you create a group in the Mac 5.3 version of Skype?

 

The support menus say, Go to Contacts menu and Create Group.

 

There is NO MENU item for this.

 

This is basic stuff guys.

 

Why use Sykpe?

Hi,

 

- Right-click (or ctrl-click) a contact from your list

- From contextual menus, select "Tag..." and thereafter "Add tag" for creating a new group.

 

Et voilà !

Thanks !

That is confusing...

and is not on Skype's support page 

What is a Tag ?? 

It is not a Group.

on the PC version 

You just click Create Group 

and Drag people in...

Much Easier !

Re : No Groups in Mac 5.3 WTF???

Thanks. That was helpful, and I agree with the next post, not intuitive at all. My problem is that last night when I tried it there was no menu to add tags, even when I used command/click. This morning I tried it right after finishing a one-on-one Skype call, and there we the menus, just as you'd said. Was I in a different part of the program? What had changed from last night to this morning? I'm thinking that being on a call put me in a different location or something.

OK I have tagged the people I want to be in my first group. There is now a Tags header in my contacts list, and the Tag/Group name I entered appears next to each group member.

Now exactly how do I make a conference call to these people/this"group"? The lack of proper instructions for this free version of Skype on Mac makes me feel extremely reluctant to pay for any upgrade......

This is ridiculous!  What do you do after your create a group all tagged under one tag to call everyone in that group simultaneously?  The windows version makes this easy, what on earth are they thinking at skype to make this so difficult.  Can you even now make a simultaneous group call?
