More About Google Groups

Google Groups makes it easy to communicate and collaborate with groups of people—such as project teams, departments, and special-interest groups.  A Group is like a mailing list: It contains the email addresses of its members, but also has its own address. By using one email address for the group, you can:

  • Send email to group members
  • Invite Group members to meetings
  • Share your content (e.g., Google documents, sites, videos, and calendars) with group members

But that's not all! Google Groups also includes these useful features:

  • My Groups—Lists all the groups you belong to or have manager rights to. Here's where you can manage your own Group memberships, adjust list settings, and read posts.
  • Browse All —Lists all the groups in our Appalachian domain that agreed to be listed in the directory. This is also where you choose to join new groups
  • Discussion Archives — Most groups are set up so that the communication between group members is saved so you can read past messages.
