UW-Madison G Suite - Class Groups

Class groups allow instructors and TAs to have google groups generated based upon their course enrollment. The system automatically updates the google group membership with Registrar data every few hours throughout the semester. Thus, student changes, e.g. add/drop or change of email address information, are automatically reflected. These are available here: https://email.wisc.edu/lists/classes. An example of what an instructor will see is below.


  • Instructors are added as managers to groups, but cannot do member management in Google Groups. They can view members(https://kb.wisc.edu/104344) in Google Groups, but to add/remove guests they must do it on the page as pictured below.
  • Groups default to Manager/Instructor only send. In order for students to be able to send to the group the setting must be changed in Google.
  • Cross-Listed courses are combined and the group will be named after the primary course.
  • See Class Groups - Incorrect or Missing Information if instructor or student data seems incorrect.
