Recipient Groups
A group of conversations you can message

Recipient groups allow you to pre-select conversations so that you can quickly configure a message of any type for delivery.

Conversations include:
  • Direct messages with other users
  • Multi-person direct messages (group messages)
  • Private channels
  • Public channels

To create a recipient group:

  • Head to the Nightowl app home – make sure you are on the Home tab.
  • Navigate to the Recipient Groups section and click
    πŸ‘₯
    New button.

Select conversations

  • Provide a name for the recipient group.
    Optional
  • Enter one or more conversations to BCC.
    When more than one conversation is selected, semicolons will be used as delimiters to display the recipients after the message is created.
    ​
    E.g. a message to separately selected DM recipients @Jack, @Jill, and @Jen will show asBCC: @Jack; @Jill; @Jen whereas selecting a group DM between you, @Jack, and @Jill in addition to a separately selected DM with @Jen will appear as BCC: @Jack, @Jill; @Jen.
  • To convert the conversations to distinct users, check the box.

  • Click Create to save the recipient group.

Convert conversations to distinct users

Selecting many individual users can be tedious. Use the optional checkbox to create a recipient group from the distinct users present across the selected conversations. This will build a group from the unique members of any public or private channels, multi-person direct messages, and/or direct messages.
