To change any of the settings for a mailing list, open up the list and click the “Settings” icon on the bottom right of the screen to open up the List Settings window.
The Settings window has three tabs, “General,” “Permissions,” and “Privacy.”
Edit the contents of the “Name” field on the “General” tab to change the list’s name. Remember that list names are visible to end users when subscribing to or unsubscribing from the list!
Status Change Email(s)
Status change emails are notifications sent to a site admin whenever a list subscriber changes their subscription status (subscribed to unsubscribed, and vice versa). Add a site admin’s email address to this field to ensure they receive the update emails. Multiple email addresses can be entered, separated by commas.
The “Permissions” tab determines who is able to edit this mailing list. Type in the name of a constituent, or use the “Select Group” button to choose a group and select all of its members.
The “Privacy” tab determines who is allowed to subscribe to this mailing list. If these settings are not touched, the list will be public by default. Edit the settings to restrict the list’s visibility by selecting the roles or groups that will be allowed to subscribe to this list.
To select only members of a given role or group, click the “Constituents Only” button, and select the role/group(s) whose members should be allowed to subscribe to the list.
For example, to make a list that’s visible only to members of the Faculty & Staff role, click the “Constituents Only” button, and then select “Faculty & Staff” from the “Roles” submenu.
Use the “Admin Only” selection to create a completely private list. Admin users are the only ones who can add subscribers to private lists.
