Linked Groups Video Tutorial​

We already know how to create a group; the classic way is by picking a couple of contacts from the list.

Ways to create groups​

There are multiple ways to create groups in Hit Em Up. You might have noticed these options at the top - Select All, Link Group, Smart Select

Select All​

Select All selects everybody in the list.

You can filter your contacts by keyword. So, let's search for Abby.

Hit-em-up-filter-by-keyword

There are 17 people that have Abby in there. Select all will let you pick the 17 people. The select all button lets you quickly select the current search term in the search field.

There are also a couple of others, including Linked Groups and Smart Selectors

Create a New group​

Let's create a new group, and name it β€” 12th grade students.

Then, to create a new group based on existing group, tap Link Group.

Select from the existing groups by tapping the box or by putting the little chain icon next to the group name.

Modify an Existing Group​

You can also add another contact to an existing group. Let's add Zamora to our 9th grade group. Add-contact-9th-grade-link-groups

When I hit save, we'll see that Zamora is now in the 9th grade students group.

But she will also be in our All students group.

Linked Groups allow you to update any Group, which is being linked dynamically. You can always modify the groups linked to the existing group by tapping Linked Groups.

And putting the little chain icon Chain-icon next to the group you want to link.

Exclude a specific person​

One last thing to note is that even though we've linked all these people into this group, if you want to exclude a specific person who's being linked into the group, you can tap them and uncheck them.

Add the excluded person back​

You can manually force them into the group by tapping again.

So again, you can tap through where it goes to the linked mode, tap again to remove them completely.

There are three states to the checkmark, and the default is to keep them linked in when you use the linked mode.

Enjoy Linked Groups and stay tuned for the other cool features available in Hit Em Up Standard like Linked groups such as Smart Selectors. A really cool way to include people based on other criteria!
