One of the questions we often get from existing TokBox-ers is “How do I add contacts to my TokBox contact list?”, so I thought it would be worthwhile sharing the basics here. In short, there are two ways you can add contacts 1) one at a time 2) entire contact lists.
Starting with adding individuals one at a time, here are the steps.
If you are looking for an existing TokBox user, enter their name or email address in our search box. Once you have your results, you can add them as a contact.
If they are not a TokBox user, then you can click on “Add account” at the bottom of the contact list and choose “Add contact”. Enter their email address and they will be invited to join TokBox. Once they do, they will appear in your contact list.
Next, if you would like to add an entire contact list, you can add lists from Gmail/Gtalk, Yahoo, AIM or MSN Messenger.
Simply click on “Add” at the bottom of your contact list and choose “Add account”. You will be asked to enter your user name and password for the account you are adding. Once you do that, all the contacts from that account will appear in your contact list. You will then be able to see when they are on or offline and be able to easily call them or send them an instant message.
