Coming Soon to OC Mailing Lists: Google Groups!
Here’s a sneak peek at what the new OC Google Groups will look like:
One of the benefits of the new system is that you will be able to see who else is subscribed to your lists (which is only accessible to other members of that list) — so you can easily find, for example, the email address of another parent in your class. You’ll also have the above home page where you can see, at a glance, all of your list subscriptions and manage your own subscriptions if you want to unsubscribe. The Google Groups upgrade also allows you to view an archive of list emails on the web as well as post from the web rather than your email client.
We’re in the process of setting up access and permissions for all of the lists now. You may notice that some list emails are prefixed with the name of the list (e.g. [OC News] or [OC Support]) — this has been extended to all committee lists and will be coming soon to class lists as well. When we’re done, we’ll send a school-wide email on OC News to let everyone know and at that point we will give you the URL to access the OC Google Groups.
If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to let us know.
