Create your own groups to have a pre-defined set of people to send a message to quickly. When you create a message the groups will be available under Messages > Groups when you select recipients for your message.
Groups are great for things like:
- After-school Groups
- Residence Halls
Add a new private group
Private groups are only available to you. Any teacher may create their own private groups.
