Hello GoLightly!

Can we email a 'group within a group?'

We have a few groups that this would be helpful for. For example, we are working on a project that includes individuals from two different states. It would be great to be able to email just those from one state at a time on some occasions. Another example, we sometimes have committees in groups that it would be great to contact just them, not the larger group.

I picture this working as being able to select which participants should get the email.

Is this something we can do now? If so, how? If not, can you add this to the feature requests?

Hello Jen, there is a way to email a 'group within a group':
  • Visit the group's participant list
  • You will see a link "SELECT PEOPLE" at the top right of the directory module box
  • Click this link. You will then be offered check boxes to the far right of people's names, and a "Add Selected" button where the "SELECT PEOPLE" link was.
  • Once you have chosen everyone, click the "GO!" button next to "Email Selected People"
  • This will take you to the interface where you can send a private message to all of the people you have chosen. Replies to your message will come to you directly.

I should point out that there is a limit to the number of private messages each person can send each day. (The limits do not apply to administrators.) These limits can be configured by following this path:
  1. Admin Tools
  2. Change Database Settings
  3. Click on the 'Email' filter
  4. Edit the following two settings: 'email_multiple_daily_limit' and 'email_multiple_limit'

Please let us know if you have any questions.

PS. This feature was turned off when we launched your community due to some issues, but I just turned it back on because we recently fixed those issues.
