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. 

How to add a Group

Adding a new group is very simple:

Step 1:

Before you begin, you must make sure you are logged in to the Transpond control panel. If you don't already have an account you can create a free account.

Step 2:

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

Each Group in Transpond has its own default settings. Here's what you need to know:

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 " 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, 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.

Customising Landing Pages

Transpond lets you customise what your contacts see when they click to unsubscribe from emails or update their preferences. These are called Landing Pages and can be customised for all Groups or for individual Groups.

To customise for all Groups:

In Transpond, go to your name in the top right and choose Company Profile
On the Landing Pages tab, choose the Edit button next to the Landing page you want to edit

To customise for an individual Group:

In Transpond, go the Contacts tab, then click on the name of the Group
On the Landing Pages tab, use the toggle to turn the option on

Both types of Landing Page use Merge Tags to add personalised information from your Transpond account:

  • The {{companyname}} is taken from the Company Name field in Company Profile > My Company
  • The {{unsubscriberOptions}} inputs Unsubscribe or Unsubscribe from all into the view

To edit the text shown for each button, use the Options button on the Landing Pages tab.
