Starting a new private thread

  1. Click the New private message button at the bottom of the Zulip window, or type x.
  2. Type the names of one or more recipients. Auto-complete will provide suggestions for users you can message.

  3. Press Tab or click on the compose box to compose your message.

  4. Click Send, or use Enter or Ctrl + Enter (depending on whether the Press Enter to send option is checked).

Rather than kicking off a group thread, consider starting the conversation in a new topic to make it easier to browse later on.
