Who has access to Direct Messages? Any full member of a network can create and join Direct Messages. Direct Messages are available under all plans - plan details. In order to add network members to the conversation, go to the Messages box, and click on the certain conversation. Once a new pop-up box appears, click the "+" icon and start adding people. You can start typing the person's name or the group's name. Select the corresponding name in the dropdown result, and click Add. The system will then generate an automated notice that certain persons/groups have been added to the chat box.
