Contacts Grouping


Is there a way of locally grouping contacts in Spark? Several of my colleagues would like to group their contacts list via department. As i am using AD to populate the user list, i know that if i add specific groups to the Openfire server and share them, i can achieve what i want, but only certain users want this functionality. How can i achieve this from within Spark?

Many thanks!


When not using LDAP, one can create local groups and copy users from other groups into them (Spark: Contacts > Add contact group). But i’m not sure how this would work with AD. Such local groups stick when you use simple shared groups. But they might disappear when using AD integration. Also not sure if copying users would work. Maybe it is better to manually add them via Contacts > Add contact to a previously created group.
