Send an Email to Group Members

Users with permission can email all the members of a group.

Administrators and users with permission can email members of a group. As an administrator or user with permission, you are automatically copied on any email you send to your group.

If a group member has the family position of Child, his or her parents will also receive the email. If the child is connected to multiple families, the parents in both families will be emailed.

After you send an email, you are told the number of group participants who received it and the number of group participants who did not. You can then have this list sent to you or immediately download it through your browser. The spreadsheet contains each individual's contact information.

Some things to keep in mind with emails:

  • An email cannot be saved as a draft or viewed once it is sent.
  • If you need to view the email once it is sent, include yourself on the recipient list. Group leaders are automatically included in the list.
  • If you are drafting a rather long email, or feel like you will need extra time to write, consider drafting the email in Microsoft Word or some other word processing program then cut and paste it into Realm.
