FAQ - How do I set up Email Groups?

Creating contact groups

KCS already has contact groups created for the various staffs.  Check with your admin to see what is your school's group name.  If you wish to set up custom groups within your email box to email a specific set of people, follow these directions.  (Keep in mind that you will need to update your custom lists as list members come/go.)  

To create a contact group:

  1. Click Mail at the top-left corner of your Gmail page, then choose Contacts.
  2. Select the contacts that you want to add to a group, click the Groups button. , then select Create new at the bottom of the Groups list.
  3. Enter the name of the group.
  4. Click OK.

To add contacts to a contact group:

  1. Select the users in the Contacts list that you wish to add to the Group.
  2. Click the Groups button. 
  3. Select the group you'd like to add the contact to, or select Create new to create a new group.
  4. If you have multiple addresses saved for a contact, you can choose which address should belong to the contact group by opening the contact and clicking the small arrow next to the group you'd like to modify.
