Block groups and distribution lists from receiving an alert
You can block groups (organizations or distribution lists) from receiving an alert on the By Groups tab in the Target Users section .
- In theTarget Userssection, clickBy Groups.
- In theGroupsfield, clickBlockbeside each group or distribution list that you want to block.When you block a group or distribution list, the Block link changes to an Unblock link and a appears beside its name.Even if a top-level group or distribution list is selected for inclusion, you can still block a sub group or sub distribution list underneath it. Blocking takes precedence over inclusion, so blocked sub groups and sub distribution lists will not be targeted even if their parent groups or distribution lists are targeted.
- To unblock a group or distribution list, clickUnblockbeside its name.If you block a group or distribution list that contains sub groups or sub distribution lists, those are also automatically blocked. To unblock any of the sub groups or sub distribution lists, you must manually unblock the parent group or distribution list first. If you manually block all sub groups or sub distribution lists, the parent group or distribution list will not display a blocked icon.
