A DIRECT MESSAGE is a private conversation between two or more CORUS users. This conversation is only accessible to those users.
When you search for an individual person or device, you initiate a DIRECT MESSAGE with that person or device.
If you have an existing direct message conversation, you can continue that conversation in CORUS simply by clicking on the room in the left panel under the DIRECT MESSAGES heading.
TIP: There is an "info" panel in each room. Expand the right sidebar and you'll see the members of the channel as well as their current CORUS status.
