Adding a new Group
Groups are used to contain and organise Contacts. You can only add Contacts once you have added at least one Group.
Adding a new group is very simple.
Once logged in to the Transpond control panel, click Contacts at the top of the screen and select Groups
Click + Add a New Group > fill in the required details on the form to create your new Group
Understanding Group Defaults
Group Name: Enter a name for the group. This name will ONLY be shown to you and other staff/users on the control panel. It will not be displayed to Contacts.
Friendly Name: Enter a friendly name for the group. This name WILL be shown to Contacts so make sure it makes sense. For example "www.transpond.io website signup users"
Default From Name: When you go to send a campaign, we will use the name you enter here as a default "From" name on the emails that get sent. You can always change this whenever you send a campaign.
Default From Email Address: Similar to the "Default From Name", anything you enter here will become the default "sent from" email address on any campaigns you send. Again, you can always override this when you go to send a campaign.
Subscriber Reminder Text: This text is shown to customers when they have received a campaign and choose to "view their profile". It is important you enter a good paragraph or two of text in this box explaining, how and why they ended up in your group. For example you might write "Contacts in this group signed up through our website registration form at www,thewebsiteofyours.com and opted to receive emails."
Once you have completed all of the fields, simply click Add New Group and your new group will be added and ready for you to start adding contacts.
