Trillian Meta-contacts

Just out of a complete and utter fluke I’ve discovered Meta-contacts. I’m using trillian pro, so i don’t know if this is in .74

Say I have a friend who uses several IM protocols, like Peach, she’s on ICQ, AIM, MSN, and YahooMsgr. I just highlight all of her IM contacts, right click and choose Create Meta-contact. It will then ask you for a contact name. Type it, choose a group, and click OK. All those contacts will now be grouped into one contact. If you always chat on one particular protocol, like I always chat with Peach on MSN, drag that contact to the top of the meta-contact list.

Why use meta-contact? Well when you don’t have that user selected in your contact list, it automatically collapses into one contact. Select it, it opens up again. Also, double click the meta contact, and you’ll get your default protocol (the top one in the list). If the user is offline in the default protocol, the next online protocol down is used.

Can someone tell me if this tip work in Trillian .74? I’m thinking not, but could be wrong.

    Have you forgot about this post? Maybe, but that’s okay!

    I’ve been using trillian for….a LONG time… I love it!

    I recently upgraded to the new 3.1 pro version. I’ve heard the term “meta-contact” used, but never knew much about it.

    So i do what any normal web surfer does, i go to google type in “trillian meta contacts” and this pops up as the first hit! And this was perfect! Short to the point, and it told me all i need to know!

    And perfect timing! my list was getting long, so now i’m consoladating them all! Whooo!
