How do I contact the managers of a bConnected List (Google Group)?

37 views

There are several ways to contact the manager(s) of a bConnected List (Google Group).

1) If you are not a member of the bConnected List

Send an email addressed to “listname+managers@lists.berkeley.edu” to reach all of the Managers of the bConnected List, e.g. “coffeelovers+managers@lists.berkeley.edu”.   

2) If you are a member of the bConnected List

If you’re already a member of the bConnected List (Google Group) you have another option:

  1. Go to http://bgroups.berkeley.edu
  2. Click on “My groups”
  3. Click on the name of the list whose managers you need to contact
  4. In the upper-right corner of the screen that appears, click the “About” link
  5. On the screen that appears, click the “Contact owner” link next to the “Group email” heading
  6. Fill out the form that appears.

3) If you are not a member of the bConnected List, but it is listed in the public Groups directory

If you’re not a member of the bConnected List (Google Group), but it is listed in the public Group directory, you have a third option:

  1. Go to http://bgroups.berkeley.edu
  2. Click on “Browse all”
  3. Click on the name of the list whose owner and managers you need to contact.
  4. If the list has a publicly viewable archive of messages, click the “About” link near the upper-right of the screen. Otherwise, skip this step.
  5. On the screen that appears, click the “contact the owner” link
  6. Fill out the form that appears.

4) If you still can’t get in touch with the owner AFTER following the steps above

  1. Contact CSS-IT at bConnected@berkeley.edu or call 510-664-9000.
  2. Policy prohibits revealing the owner of a bConnected List, but the consultants can send a request to the owner of that list asking them to contact you.

If you are a manager of a bConnected List, and you wish to restrict who is allowed to contact you

  1. You may wish to remove your group from the public Group directory. To do that, go to Information > Directory > Group Directory in your Group’s settings and uncheck the “List this group in the directory” checkbox.  Unlisting the group will prevent nonmembers of your group from contacting you via the web methods mentioned above.
  2. You can restrict who is allowed to contact the managers of your group by going to Permissions > Access Permissions > Contact the owners of this Group and changing the “Public” setting to a more-restrictive setting.  We strongly recommend that you not make this change: this will prevent users who are having issues sending to the list from contacting you, for example
