Configuring a group recipient

Groups are configured by adding recipients as group members. A group contains one or more recipients and each recipient receives the notification message. Members of the group can be a combination of individual persons, computers, printers, or other groups.

To configure a group recipient

  1. On the navigation bar, click Alerts.

  2. Click the Active Alerts tab.

  3. Under Notification Tasks in the task pane, click Configure recipients.

    The Configure Recipients dialog box appears.

  4. Click New, click Group in the Recipient Type dialog box, and then click OK.

  5. In the Group Name field, type the group for whom you are configuring the notification.

  6. To add members to the group, select recipients from the All Recipients list, and then click Add to move them to the Group Members list.

  7. To remove members from the group, select recipients from the Group Members list, and then click Remove to move them to the All Recipients list.

  8. When you have completed the group, click OK.

    The new group can be added to other groups.
