Adding Contacts to your Blizz account

You can easily add contacts to your Blizz account by entering their email address. In addition, you can also allow Blizz to access your Outlook contacts so that these contacts are available to you directly in Blizz.

Note: Access to Outlook is only available with Windows

Adding Contacts

1. In the Navigation bar, click on Contacts.

2. Above the address list, click Add Contact.

3. In the Add Contact field, enter an email address.

4. Click Add.

5. If the contact is not known, you will be prompted to send them an invitation. In this case, click Invite.

The contact is then created and will be visible in your contact list.

Importing Contacts from Outlook

1. In the Navigation bar, click on Contacts.

2. Above the address list, click Import Outlook Contacts.

A dialog box with any available contacts will open.

Note: If you receive a message that prompts you to enable the "Allow

corresponding checkbox in the Blizz options; See "Changing the
Import Settings" below.

4. Click Add Contacts to List and confirm with OK.

The contacts are then created and will be visible in your contact list.
