Add or change a group's welcome message

If Google Groups isn't available in your work or school account, ask your administrator to turn on Groups for Business. ""

Group owners and managers can enter a welcome message for people viewing a group. A welcome message can:

  • Help prospective members understand the group’s purpose.
  • Show important information, such as your team’s website or email address, so co-workers know how to learn more about your team.
  • Remind people of any important message, such as posting guidelines you’d like them to follow.

The message appears below the group name on the group’s conversation list.

Add or edit a welcome message

  1. Sign in to Google Groups.
  2. Click the name of a group.
  3. On the left, click Group settings.
  4. In the Welcome message field, enter, edit, or delete your message text.
  5. Click Save changes.
