Email Digests

If your email inbox is getting out of control, a simple way to reduce the volume is to receive email lists in digest form.  Google groups, such as the BPS Want Ads, can be set to send you a single email each day with the day’s activity.  Digests also eliminate graphics, a bonus if you are reading your emails on a mobile device.  To see the original emails with all of the graphics, simply click on the email subject to be directed to the original format.

  1. Sign in to Google Chrome under your BPS account.
  2. Navigate to groups.google.com
  3. Click on My Groups
  4. If you don’t see the BPS Public Groups, click on bpsk12.org to toggle between your personal groups and the district groups.
  5. Use the drop-down menu to select Digest Email. Your changes will be saved automatically.

Remember that since you receive only one email daily, you should not use digest mode for any group where timely receipt and response to emails is required.

A quick video tutorial is included below.
