Create Custom Google Group


ITS provides assistance with creation of custom Google groups.


  • All members of the Manhattan College community can create their own Google groups.  Groups made by a user have "-user" appended to the group name.
  • In order to create a group without the "-user" appended to the group name, you must request this service.


  • ITS can create a custom Google group that can be shared amongst your colleagues.
  • Email can be quickly and easily sent out to a group without severely impacting your daily email send limit.  An email to many counts as only one email.  Please visit this link to learn more about Google Sending Limits.
  • History of emails sent to the group are archived for easy access on the group page.

You can also create an online forum to discuss a topic, share information and updates.
