     1469                                If you want to move contacts between groups, you can use the IRC <emphasis>/invite</emphasis> command. Also, if you use the <emphasis>add</emphasis> command in a control channel configured to show just one group, the new contact will automatically be added to that group.

     185<para>
     186The most important setting for a control channel is <emphasis>fill_by</emphasis>. It
     187tells BitlBee what information should be used to decide if someone should be shown
     188in the channel or not. After setting this setting to, for example, <emphasis>account</emphasis>, you
     189also have to set the <emphasis>account</emphasis> setting. Example:
     190</para>
     191
     192<ircexample>
     193        <ircline nick="wilmer">chan set &amp;wlm fill_by account</ircline>
     194        <ircline nick="root">fill_by = `account'</ircline>
     195        <ircline nick="wilmer">chan set &amp;wlm account msn</ircline>
     196        <ircline nick="root">account = `msn'</ircline>
     197</ircexample>
     198
     199<para>
     200Also, each channel has a <emphasis>show_users</emphasis> setting which lets you
     201choose, for example, if you want to see only online contacts in a channel, or
     202also/just offline contacts. Example:
     203</para>
     204
     205<ircexample>
     206        <ircline nick="wilmer">chan set &amp;offline show_users offline</ircline>
     207        <ircline nick="root">show_users = `offline'</ircline>
     208</ircexample>

     211See the help information for all these settings for more information.
