Assigning a VM to a Desktop Group

I've created a new VM using Citrix Desktop Studio but it doesn't appear in any Desktop Group. How can I assign/add it to one of my Desktop Groups?
If I right-click the VM in Desktop Studio I only get the options to Change User or Delete the machine.
If I right-click any other existing VMs, I get many more options such as Start, Edit tags, Add tag, Enable maintenance mode, Change user, Remove from Desktop Group and Delete.

I'm using XenServer and VMWare.

What version of XenDesktop are you using and what is the machine type being used? Are you using provisioning server?

first you have to add the vm to the machine-pool, then you have to add the vm to the desktop group.
goto desktop group and select "add device"

XenDesktop 5 with a provisioning server, the VM is a WindowsXP device.
I've created the new VM within a specific machine-pool but can't see where to add the VM to the Desktop Group.
