Some bits of news and information are only interesting and relevant to just a particular segment of your group, such as current members only, first year students or alumni. Sending content to this smaller, targeted list of members means improved communication and better open rates.
Save your targeted list of recipients into a Mailing List
You can create a Mailing List out of a custom group you create. Previously, when you sent an email from CampusGroups, you had to select your targeted group of members manually each time. To save time and help improve this process, we've created a Mailing List feature to allow you to save your selection of recipients. If you select Full-Time Student (Second Year Only), this list will evolve automatically as new students join your groups. No need to add your new members manually!
We attribute one unique email address to each Mailing List
Each Mailing List receives its own dedicated email address, such as firstname.lastname@example.org. If you send an email to that address, it will forward that email to every single recipient associated with that mailing list.
A major benefit of this feature is that you can quickly send an email to specific members of your group without having to logon to CampusGroups.
Set up is simple. To quickly email a segment of your group:
- Click on members.
- Select multiple types of members (by account, year of graduation).
- Click on create mailing list.
- Name your new mailing list.
- You'll be given a dedicated mailing list email to use anytime.
- Send a quick note to all the members of your mailing list from your personal inbox.
With a dedicated email for your mailing list, sending quick messages to all list members has never been easier, or faster!
