Questions about the Private Conversation function

I know that there is a way to add people to an ongoing conversation, but I can't find the right place to do that.

And one other related question -- is there a way to see who are the people who were initially joined in a conversation? I know that I can see the members who have actually communicated with me in a conversation, but I can't figure out how to see a list of everyone who was added into the conversation when it was created.

Thanks for your help, Buen camino, Laurie

Only the person starting a private conversation (PM) can "add" other members to a PM conversation. There is no way for any staff of admin (me) to add themselves unless invited.
It also seems to rely on the person starting the conversation allowing this from the outset by checking the box 'Allow anyone in the conversation to invite others'. Even then, it is not clear to me how others are added.

See snapshot below of a Private Conversation being started. Ashampoo_Snap_2016.01.18_12h26m45s_003_.png If you just want to PM another member, fill in their forum name, the Conversation Title, the message and then send. If you want to include others just add them separated by a comma. If you want to allow the person getting the PM to add others tick the box "Allow anyone in the conversation to invite others"
If you do NOT want a reply to your PM (???) tick the box "Lock conversation (no response allowed)

@wayfarer, what I cannot find is a way, once the conversation has been started, to 'invite' someone new even with the tick box selected.
