Mailing List Settings

To change any of the settings for a mailing list, open up the list and click the pink gear “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.”

General Tab


List Name

Edit the contents of the “Name” field on the “General” tab to change the list’s name. Remember that list names are viewable to end users when subscribing or unsubscribing from list!

Status Change Emails

Status Change emails are notifications that go out 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 update emails. Multiple email addresses can be entered, separated by a comma.

Permissions Tab


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.

Privacy Tab


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.
