Group email is a great way to share an inbox with multiple people without having to type everyone’s emails individually. It’s especially useful if you have a large team, such as a sales or marketing department. You can also use group email if you’re looking for ways to organize meetings, send updates, or keep track of important events and messages.
Creating a group in Google
The first step is to select the contacts you want to add to your group and then create a label for them. You can do this by clicking on the Contacts tab or using the label feature in Google’s webmail interface.
Once you have selected the contacts, click the “Create label” button at the bottom of the screen. This will automatically create a new Google Group and add the contacts to it.
You can also add them manually by selecting them and then clicking the “Add to Group” button. Once you’ve added them to the group, they’ll appear under the label you created in the contacts list on your Gmail account.
Adding members to your Google Group
Once all of the members are in your group, you can start sending out emails and replying to conversations within the group. However, you must be careful about who can post in the group.
In order to make this easier, you can set up the group so that only members can post in it. You can choose to limit new members to only be able to post in threads or to only post messages when you approve their posts. You can also choose whether or not you want to moderate and go through spam messages before they are posted to the group.
Managing groups in Gmail
To manage your groups in Google, you’ll need to have access to the Google Groups page. You can access it by logging in to the Google Workspace dashboard with an admin account.
When you are logged in to the Google Groups page, click on Create group at the top-left corner of the page. From there, you can give your group a name, describe it, and decide who should be the owner of the group and who should be allowed to post.
Alternatively, you can use the search bar on the top of the page to find existing groups or create a new one.
After you’ve created your group, you can add new members to it directly or send an invite to them via email. If you want to send an invite, select the person you’d like to add and click Send.
You can also create new groups in Google’s mobile apps or on desktop. This can be a convenient option when you’re on the go.
When you’re sending an email to your group, you can include the label of the group in the “To” line. This can help you sort out your emails based on who they are sent to and make it easy to locate all of the people you’ve added to the group.
