Auto-Reply Now in Google Groups

Google Groups now has an Auto-Reply feature! If you're the creator or owner/manager of a Google Group, the auto-reply feature allows you to create up to four different, customized auto-responses for different recipients: 

  1. Group members from inside UCSC
  2. Non-members from inside UCSC
  3. Group members from outside UCSC
  4. Non-members from outside UCSC

Imagine you have a Google Group set up for customer support, and the address is published on your website. If the office will be closed during the holidays, setting up automatic replies could be helpful. 

To get started using auto replies in Google Groups, go to Google Groups, click on the Group you own and go to Email Options under your Group Settings.
