UW-Madison Google Workspace - Advisor Groups

Advisor groups allow for data driven groups based on Registrar data. The system automatically updates the google group membership based on set parameters for that group overnight. Advisor groups are available here: https://email.wisc.edu/lists/advisor. An example of what an advisor will see is below.


  • Admins/Owners are added as managers to groups, but cannot do member management in Google Groups. They can view members(https://kb.wisc.edu/104344) in Google Groups, but to add/remove guests they must do it on the page as pictured below.
  • Advisees can't unsubscribe, but can set themselves to not receive mail
  • Enrolled and eligible advisees are added to the advisor group
