Google Contacts

This procedure is for managing contacts and email groups in your silverdaleba.org account . Examples of each might be “English Teachers,” “Math Department,” or “5th Period Spanish 2.” 

It's also a great and under-rated way to store your login information and important information about other people in the "notes field" under every contact.

To add names to your Contact List
  • On the main google screen, click on the “apps” box (a 3x3 pattern of squares) next to your email address. Be sure that you are on your own account!
  • Click on the Contacts icon (see right)
  • Click on the white “+” button in the top left corner
  • Type in the email address of the person you want to add, then click "Save"
