Question of the Week
Question: "I want to create a group of contacts in my Gmail account; how do I do that?"
Answer: Being able to send an email to a group of contacts is a great feature that most email services feature. Just one word of caution: remember to use BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) if you are sending to a group of contacts who don't know each other.
In Gmail, Groups are called Labels.
Here's how to create a label (group) in Gmail Contacts:
1) Open Gmail.
2) In the upper left corner, click on the Gmail drop-down menu and choose Contacts.
3) In the left column, find the word Labels. There is a little arrow to the left of the word. If the arrow is pointing down, click the word Labels.
4) Once the Labels arrow is pointing up, you should see Create Label. Click on that wording.
5) Give the label a name and click OK.
6) Now, find the first contact you want to add to your new label. To the right of the contact, you'll find three vertical dots.
7) Click on the dots and then click on the label (group) you want that person in.
That's how you get contacts into a group (label). Next week, we'll show you how to send an email to a group.
