  • How do I add users to a group?

    .

    Users can be added to a group in two different ways.  The first is to type or copy and paste a list.  In the Toolbox:

    1. Clickthe "Utilities" button at the top
    2. Click "Create/edit" under Group Manager
    3. Click "edit" for the group you wish to add users to
    4. Click the Users" tab and then click Add Users
    5. Type or copy and paste users and click add

    Be sure to choose the correct delimiter on the right if you are adding multiple users at one time.  The correct format is:

    The second way to add users to a group is to upload a file.  This file must be a text file with all users seperated by carriage returns.  If you are starting with a FACTS list in Excel simply delete all of the other columns and save as a text file.   In the Toolbox:

    1. Click the Utilities button at the top
    2. Click "Create/edit" under Group Manager
    3. Click "edit" for the group you wish to add users to
    4. On the "Upload/Download" tab, click the "Browse" button
    5. Browse to the text file with your users and click "upload".

    The users in your list are now in your group.  Currently we are not displaying a report of what emails were bad, only how many.  In the future we will provide reports with this type of information.
