Managed Google Groups are Google Groups in the geneseo.edu domain whose membership is based on population selections from our campus information system.
Most Managed Google Groups:
send members each approved message as an individual email
are moderated, meaning any messages submitted to the Group will be held for a Group Manager to either approve or reject the message
will notify you if a message you submitted is rejected.
allow new messages to be submitted by email or the Groups web interface.
"New Groups" vs "Classic Groups"
Google is rolling out a new Groups user interface they call "New Groups". As of November 2020, users may still revert to "Classic Groups" to access features that are not yet implemented in "New Groups". Eventually, Google will remove this capability.
Submitting a Message to a Group
Submitting Via Email
Submitting a message via email is usually as simple as sending an email to the Managed Google Group email address by:
Composing a new message in Gmail and using the autocomplete functionality to search for the group name or email address in the Global Address List. Most Managed Google Groups are included in that search.
Searching for the group in Google Groups, and looking for the email address in the results. If you click on a group in the results, the About link on the left should show you the Group email address.
an individual email for every message, delivered as soon as it was posted/approved
a batch ("digest") of up to 25 messages per day, delivered at an unpredictable time of day
a single daily abridged summary of all messages, delivered at an unpredictable time of day
