How do I send emails to a specific group?

Filter Recipient List to send email to a specific group

The recipient filters allow you to narrow down your list and email a specific group. 

  1. By default, all Parents in the system are selected. You can check additional User Types to add more to this list depending on who you are trying to reach. Adding more filters will narrow your down your group and total recipients. 
For example: 
  • If I want to send this email to all of the parents, the User Type - Parents should be the only filter selected. The results give me 222 parents in the database. 
  • If I want to send this email to all of the parents who have verified their data, check off User Type - Parents and with information that has been - Verified. The results give me 44 parents because only 44 parents of the 222 in the system have verified their data.
