Folders to Organize Mailing Lists in Messages

We create hundreds of more-or-less single-use mailing lists per year, or single-year lists. It would be very helpful to be able to organize these in folders, so we can separate parent annual fund from new parent annual fund, etc, or LYBUNTS Dec 2019 from LYBUNTS June 2020. This would make searching for the right list easier, faster, and us more confident we're using the right one.

    I used this feature in eNotify and it would be very helpful in Messages too. I handle 95% of communications but when someone else has to send a message, the folder organization would help an infrequent user select the correct list.

    Hi Daisey. Yes, I'm interested in organization for both Lists and Messages sent. Thanks for asking!

    I think both options would be useful (organization and permissions) but our main need at this time (for lists and messages) is organization.

    Hi Daisey, I would like folders for both reasons. One, to be able to track our own messages from the district level. But two, to be able to track messages by school and then assign permissions based on folders.

    Permissions would not be a bad idea. I would like Admissions to have all their lists in one folder. It may be easier for teams like Admission to only see their folder and lists.

    Hi All,

    We starting to look into adding folders to Lists in Messages. As we started to talk through how best to implement this for mailing lists, we started to question the main purpose of the folder. From the examples I see here, it sounds like folders are desired for simply organization, and not for assigning permissions to a group of lists. Is that the correct assumption? Or, are you looking to do more than just organize lists into folders?

    I would like to be able to organize the sent messages, too, in addition to the mailing lists.

    100% agree! Do you use custom "merge tags" in these messages? We'd like to include gift amount in LYBUNT messages, but haven't yet figured out how to get that info into the message.

    I need this feature as I have dozens of mailing lists!
