No. You cannot update pre-built groups like Course Groups or Department Groups.
Yes. When you share a group with others, you are giving them access to view and communicate with the group. This does not grant them administrative access. Only you can update or delete a group you create. Note: You cannot add non-BC addresses to Campus Groups. If you want to create a group that includes non-BC email addresses, create a listserv mailing list.
Yes. For Administrative Groups, you can assign multiple BC people to maintain the same group. Group administrators can create, update, and delete groups. They can also grant update access to others within the same department. Note: All group members can view and use the Administrative Group.
When creating the group, select "Emailable." Then, use the name of your group (i.e. username.groupname) and add "@bc.edu" to the end (for example: "email@example.com"), then add it to the "To," "CC" or "BCC" field of your email. Note: Groups have limited listserv functionality. If you require a monitored and/or a restricted mailing list, request a traditional listserv mailing list.
