PageGate Groups Setup Transcript for Video:
Welcome to the Groups and Display Groups tutorial.
In this tutorial, we'll be going over how to
configure Groups and Display groups within PageGate.
The first step is to run the PageGate Admin,
so go to your start menu, go to Programs, find
the PageGate Program group, and left click on
the PageGate Admin.
When the PageGate Admin comes up, you should
see both sections: groups and display groups.
We'll do the groups first. Right click on the
groups section, then left click on Add.
In the Description field, you can name the group
whatever you please.
After giving the group a name, once you left
click in the Group field, it should fill in for
You'll notice the Advanced Options and we'll
get to those in a moment.
Left click on Apply to add this group into the
Once the group has been added, left click on
the + next to the group and go to the Members
Here in the members section, you'll notice that
we have two sections: Non-Members and Members.
To add someone as a member of a group, simply
left click on their name and it will move them
into the members section.
Once you've finished populating your group, left
click on Apply.
Now, let's go back to those Advanced Options
we saw earlier.
Left click on the Settings under your group's
You should see the On-Call Group checkbox.
If this is enabled, you can configure a list
of dates and times for an on-call schedule for
the members of this group.
To configure this schedule, put a check in On-Call
Group and left click on the On-Call Schedule button.
Once the On-Call schedule screen comes up, left
click on Add.
First, select the recipient that you want to
Then specify the start day, start time, stop
day, and stop time.
In this example, I'm going to say that my sample
SMTP recipient should receive messages Monday
through Friday from 9AM to 5PM. Once you've set
your schedule, left click on Apply.
This tells PageGate that this recipient should
only ever receive messages to this group from
9AM to 5PM Monday through Friday.
Any messages sent on Saturday or Sunday or messages
sent before 9AM or after 5PM will not go to this
recipient and will instead go to whoever is on
Once you've configured your on-call schedule,
left click on Apply.
In this next part of the tutorial, we'll be going
over how to configure a display group but let
me explain what a display group is.
A normal group is a group of recipients that
all need to be messaged at once.
The normal groups will show up in the PageGate
client or on your paging website and are available
The display groups are groups that allow you
to control who the PageGate Client or web pages
can and cannot see.
So, find the Display Groups section, right click
on it, and left click on Add.
As before, give this display group a description,
then left click in the group field and it will
fill in for you.
Left click on Apply to add this new display group.
Left click on the + next to the display group's
name, and left click on members.
Here in the members, we can choose who should
be displayed and who should not be displayed in
the PageGate client.
Left click on a recipient or group's name to
move them into the member list and left click
You can have multiple display groups as well.
For example, let's say we have three sections:
sales, tech, and registration. Let's also say
that we don't want the Sales receptionists to
see the Tech or Registration people.
We can lock the Sales receptionists' GUI Client
to the Sales Display group and they'll only ever
be able to select from the members in the Sales
This concludes the Groups and Display Groups
