Some response teams use mailing lists to communicate with their members, and some create mailing lists per “group” (e.g. officers, leadership, etc.) within their organization, including for qualification groups; divers, drone pilots, EMTs, etc. etc.
Using groups within D4H allows you to reference members by name (their profile) and only have to manage the email address once within D4H, not once per mailing list. You can view members in a group and/or the groups a member is within. As things change (and things continually change; members retire, members get qualified and/or promoted) you can easily maintain D4H groups accordingly.
In D4H you can create as few or as many groups as you like, naming them as suits your purpose. You can create a Dive Team group, an Officers group, a per Station group, as required. You can set requirements on groups (ensuring you have a given number of such members on duty) and you can collaborate with groups. D4H allows you to message a group, sending to only those within that group.
Using groups make D4H more valuable for your organization.
Response Utilities, our mobile application for D4H allows you to quickly/easily view members within groups, and also send email and/or messages (if all members of the group have a mobile phone number registered with D4H) to all members of a group from anywhere you need. (See communications for how.)
