Combining two groups of subscribers into a single group is pretty easy.
In this example, I have groups for each office location in my demo organization. As you can imagine, sometimes offices merge. In this case, we're merging the "NY Office" group and "VA Office" group into one big "East Coast Office" group.
Here are the current groups in our example account:
Step 1: Create your new group for the "East Coast Office"...
I simply enter the name and description for my new office ("East Coast Office") and then click Add Group
The new group will appear in the list of available groups as an empty, new group.
Step 2: Select the groups to add together...
I just check the boxes next to the group(s) I'd like to add to another group. In this example, I check "NY Office" and "VA Office".
Step 3: Add the selected groups to another group...
Now, I can use the "Add to Group" dropdown the add the members from both my "NY Office" and "VA Office" groups to my newly formed "East Coast Office" group.
This will add all users who are in either the "NY Office" group or the "VA Office" group to the "East Coast Office" group.
The end result will be an "East Coast Office" group with all of the members that belonged to the "NY Office" and "Va Office" in it.
Notes / Tips:
- The "Add to Group" function copies the membership of one group into another. It does not replace the membership in the destination group.
- Users won't be duplicated. If a user is a member of more than one group, it's not a problem. The system will only add users who weren't already in the destination group.
- Adding groups together does not link groups in the future. This process merely adds the current members from our source group(s) to the destination group. If we were to add new users to our "NY Office" or "VA Office" groups later on, they won't automatically be added to the "East Coast Office".
- Deleting Groups doesn't delete Users. Deleting a group merely removes the grouping, not the users 'Omnilert accounts. If needed, I could now safely delete my "NY Office" and "VA Office" groups.
