From within Messenger v5 you can create your own groups outside of those created dynamically from your source data, allowing you to customise the filtering and add additional contacts as required. Once created, your new group will be displayed in the ‘Send Message’ screen along with the dynamic groups.
To create a Group;
- Select the appropriate contacts from your database using the steps outlined in the 'Select Contacts' section.
- Click ‘Save Group’ from below the list of contact selection criteria in the centre pane.
- In the pop-up window, give the Messenger v5 Group a unique and relevant name.
- We recommend you include filtering and group criteria to make this easy to use in future. The example shown could be called “Yr10&11 Students + all Teaching Staff”
- Click Submit.
You will then see your new group appear alphabetically in the groups list on the left side of the main screen, showing the total number of contacts within that group. This group will now be available for future use.
