Feature Incorporated: Skipper Defined Groups for Mail Lists

Post by admin » Fri Oct 04, 2019 10:41 pm

Crew Manager currently has two groups defined for emails. The groups are:
All Posts - a group that is emailed any Posts added to the website, and may also be selected in Skipper Send Email
Core Crew - a group the Skipper may define with a subset of crew members who may be selected in Skipper Send Email

The Manage Groups screen available on the Crew Manager admin menu allows the Skipper to select which crew members are assigned to these groups.

The ability for the Skipper to define and name new groups, select crew for these groups and select the group in the To recipients list when sending email would be helpful. The ability to add, rename and delete these additional groups should be included.

The Skipper may now define custom email groups to use in Skipper Send Email. This has been incorporated to all sites as of noon, 8 October 2019. The Manage Groups screen is available from the left menu in the WordPress Admin section. This is the same screen where the Skipper assigns Crew to the various groups (e.g. Retired, Core Crew, All Posts, Show Crew).

There is a new section at the top of the screen that allows the Skipper to add, delete and change Custom Groups. Once added, the groups appear in a column with check boxes by each crew so they may be selectively added to the group. This picture below shows the new sections annotated.

Once added to the group, the Skipper Send Email page available from the Skipper menu for a logged in Skipper will include that group in the To: dropdown.
