WiscList - Delegated Administration

WiscList Admin allows you to delegate administrative control to a list or set of lists among many people (i.e. departmental administration). This document details the two options with which you can share administrative control.

Option 1: Role-Based or Service Account Delegation

Recommended for: Large groups, sets of lists that change frequently, or groups that would prefer to allow staff to control the creation of lists and delegation of administrative rights.

  1. Establish a role-based or service email account (WiscMail Plus or other local email service, not a list). Complete the Request WiscMail+ Form to get started.
  2. Add the role-based or service email account as an administrator of the list (see: WiscList - Adding a List Member or Administrator).

    Note: The "No Mail" setting is recommended for Step #5 when adding administrators to your list(s) if you do not want the account to receive potentially sensitive information via mailings.

  3. Each individual who you want to be an administrator will need to personally add the role-based or service email account as a verified address (see: WiscList - Managing Verified Addresses).

Option 2: Add Administrators Using Their Individual Accounts

Recommended for: Small groups, sets of lists that do not change frequently, or groups that would prefer to centrally manage the creation of lists and delegation of administrative rights.

  1. For this method you need to manually add administrators to your list by following the instructions outlined in WiscList - Adding a List Member or Administrator.

    Note: The "No Mail" setting is recommended for Step #5 when adding administrators to your list(s) if you do not want the account to receive potentially sensitive information via mailings.
