Group properties are indicated by the group container shape:
Rectangle (e.g. Employees or Group Managers)
Post-Only Mail to the Faculty and Staff subgroups
Oval (e.g. Faculty or Staff):
Receive-Only from the Employees group and
Receive-Only from members of the respective subordinate groups
Rounded Rectangle (e.g. HR or Mathematics):
Post and Receive to any group inside the rounded rectangle containers
Post to the Faculty or Staff container oval from any of the respective subordinate groups
To determine your group memberships:
Go to the Groups icon in the top right corner of your email screen.
Click the My Groups icon.
Confirm that you are a member of at least one of the groups in the rounded rectangle container directly below Faculty or Staff groups.
The Employees group contains two sub-groups - Faculty and Staff. Mail addressed to the Employees group will expand to the Faculty and Staff groups and will then further expand to the department groups (e.g. Academic Programs or Business).
Group owners may choose to limit posting permissions.
To change post settings, please request the change through the IT Help Desk.
To request membership in the Group Managers group, please email your supervisor.
Mail can be addressed to groups using the friendly name (“Employees,” “Staff”); it is not necessary to know the group email address. Simply begin typing the group name in the TO: field.
The official groups above comprise the groups that are involved in NCSSM’s bulk posts. In addition, the Custom groups below have been established for special function communications and collaboration.
Many of these groups are no longer active. Please advise if an inactive group can be removed from the directory list. In addition, each of the groups below needs an owner to maintain appropriate membership. Many groups may be better served by a local, rather than a global, group. Groups that are not associated with an owner might be removed.
