I was under the impression that 'tschüss' was an informal/personal greeting that meant both 'hi' and 'bye'. As an example in the movie 'Beyond Silence' one of the characters asks another to 'tschüss' the character they were going to see. I thought it was like the Polish word 'cześć' which seems to be a greeting that is used when meeting or leaving a friend. Am I wrong?
I'm not a native speaker, but I've only heard it as a "goodbye" and not a "hello". These links don't seem to show it as a greeting, only a farewell. I hope that helps!
