These directions explain how list owners can use Listserv's web interface to add and delete subscribers, and also add or remove list owners. If you need help with these directions, or need to make other changes to a list, contact the Listserv manager, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first step is to open your list's home page. The URL for your list's web page was included in the mail you received when your list was created. If you have that mail available you can click on the link in the mail. Otherwise, follow these steps:
Before managing your list you need to be logged-in to Listserv with your list owner e-mail address. Check the very top of your list's page above the blue Listserv banner. If you are already logged-in, it will say Logged in as: and your email address. If you are already logged-in you can skip to Managing and Reviewing Subscribers or Managing List Owners. Otherwise, follow these steps to login:
To manage your list's subscribers, use the List Management tab at the top of your list's home page. If the List Management tab is not present then you need to login to Listserv as described in the previous section. If you did login, but the tab is still not present, try quitting from your browser and starting over. Sometimes that's necessary for new list owners.
With the List Management tab present, click on it and then on Subscriber Management. You should go to the Subscriber Management page, and see two choices near the top, Single Subscriber and Bulk Operations. Also, at the bottom of the page are links for reviewing the list of subscribers on a web page, or receiving the list via email.
As you can see from the web page, the Single Subscriber choice allows you to search for existing subscribers to manage. Below that is a section for adding new subscribers one at a time.
You can also add a list of subscribers from a file on your computer. To do that, follow these steps:
As a list owner, you can update the configuration of your list to add, modify, and delete list owners. To do that, click on the List Management tab at the top of your list's home page. Then click on List Configuration, and finally on List Configuration Tasks. That should take you to the List Configuration page. On that page there is a list of owners you can edit, and also a list of quiet owners. Quiet owners have all the privileges of a list owner, but do not receive any mail directed to list owners. There must be at least one non-quiet owner.
The configuration page also has sections for other roles associated with your list, including Configuration-Owner, Editor, and Moderator. Lists at Brown do not normally use the Configuration-Owner role. The people who can send to an announcement list or moderated list are normally entered in the Editor section (not the Moderator section.) Some lists also use the Moderator role to control which editors receive and approve postings sent to the list. If a list is not an announcement or moderated list, entering editors or moderators will have no effect. For most lists there is no need to modify the remaining roles.
For other tasks not listed here, contact the Listserv manager, email@example.com.
