Creating a Mailing List for a Student Group

Created by Thomas Weller, Modified on Thu, 13 Jul 2023 at 12:13 PM by Thomas Weller

To create a mailing list or a list of any kind for your student group, log in to the SU website and use the Groups tool on your admin panel. 

From the groups tool select Create New Group

Name the group, select the Type as List, and the Category as Mailing List. Then click Create.

You'll then have to add members into the mailing list. Click on the name of the list under your list of groups. Then click the checkbox next to the name of members you want to add to the list. Once you have selected all the members to add to the list, click Add Members at the bottom of the screen.

Your mailing list will now be created and populated. When using the Messages tool on your admin panel you will now be able to select the mailing list as a recipient so that your messages go to only the desired members. 

A mailing list could be useful for novice members, first-year members, final-year students, female members, 1st team members, and so on. You will need to keep the list up to date by adding new members, but it's easier than keeping a list of everyone's student numbers written down. 

There is no need to create a mailing list for all members, standard members, or associate members, as these will already appear as options when using the Messages tool.
