Adding a User Group

You can add users to groups according to similar properties including user types, location, or the type of notifications they should receive. If a user does not have a Control Manager user account, you can still add the user to a group by typing their email address. However, they will only receive notifications if the group has been added to the recipient list for specific events.

  1. Navigate to Administration > Account Management > User Groups.

    The User Groups screen appears.

  2. On the working area, click Add New Group.
  3. Type a descriptive name for the group in Group name.
  4. Under Group Members, add or remove users to the group list.
    • To add a user:

    1. Select a user from the User(s) list. Use the CTRL key to select multiple users.
    2. Click () to add the selected user(s) to the Group User List. Control Manager sends notifications to users based on the contact information specified during their account setup.
    • To remove a user:

    1. Select a user from the Group User List. Use the CTRL key to select multiple users.
    2. Click () to remove the user.
  5. To add individuals who do not have Control Manager accounts to the Group User List, provide the following under Additional members:
    • Email address(es)

    • Pager number(s) (precede the pager number with the number your company uses to dial out and a comma "," [each comma causes a 2 second pause]) Separate multiple entries with semicolons.
