All messages sent through ARMS can be found in a single location within ARMS Mobile. Using the Conversations screen, Users can access all of their existing individual or group conversations. The list displays the most recently updated conversations first and specifically identifies conversations containing unread messages.

Tip: The Conversations page works similarly to popular Messaging apps that you may already use (e.g. GroupMe, WhatsApp, Google Hangouts), allowing you to search through all of your conversations, respond to your messages, and start new conversations.
