This week we added the ability to create mini-groups within your Radio Handi communities. You can use sublists to blast an email or text message to a subset of your community. For example, you can create a mini-list for an upcoming party, then check off the people you want to invite from your main group.
Creating and managing your mini-lists is easy.
- Log in to Radio Handi
- Go to your group's home page by clicking on My Communities
- Click on Manage Your Lists
- You'll see an option to create a new list. Just give your new list a name, and then drag and drop users onto your new mini-list.
Sending Email to a Mini-List
Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from the email account associated with your Radio Handi account. Your email will be relayed to the people on this mini-list via email and SMS.
Sending an SMS to a Mini-List
Just send an SMS to 1-866-687-2373 in the following format:
"groupnumber.minilist The rest of your text message goes here"
"groupname.minilist The rest of your text message goes here"
NOTE: there is a minor bug in the SMS service that causes it not to recognize some group name's. If you get a "group not found" error, send a message using your group number instead. For example: "558025.drinkingbuddies Hey, I'm thirsty. Meet me at Skylark at 8pm." We'll have this fixed shortly, but in the meanwhile this will work.
