Launch: New Group List Features


We launched Group Lists just a few short weeks ago and we’ve already added new features, based on customer feedback. Subject tags now allow customers to automatically tag the subject of every email sent to a Group List with specified text. This makes it easy to recognize that an email was sent from a Group List. For example, the subject of an email with the Subject Tag “Developers” would look like this:
[Developers] Meeting Today in the Conference Room
Two new functions were also added to the control panel to make it easier to create Group Lists and keep them up to date.
These changes are available immediately in the control panel.
Thanks to Matt and Hartsock for taking customer feedback so seriously and knocking this out in their spare time.

    It would be great to add an option to set the reply-to header on a group list.  I know there are different schools of thoughts on this, but for me I like to setup lists so that replies go to the group by default.
