Rather than re-creating the same custom filters each time you compose an email to the same group of people, Demosphere’s Communication Center now allows Site Administrators to select from a list of saved Distribution Groups.
When composing a new email message, administrators now have the option to either configure custom filters manually or to choose from saved Distribution Groups.
Custom filters can be saved as new Distribution Groups directly within the New Message dialog with the “Save Email Recipient Filters as Distribution Group” button.
Selecting a Distribution Group will automatically populate the View Recipients dialog based on the pre-set filter criteria.
In addition to saving Distribution Groups in the New Message window, Administrators can also create and save Groups directly from the Email Broadcast tab within the Communications Center window.
A dialog consisting of the same filters available when creating a new email message will appear after selecting the green Create New Distribution Group button.
A unique Distribution Group name is required to save.
A button within this dialog exists to display a list of recipients based on the configured filters, similar to when creating a new message.
All Distribution Groups can be edited and/or deleted by Site Administrators.
Distribution Groups are not unique to the individual and can be accessed by all Site Administrators with Email Broadcast permissions.
