UW-Madison Google Workspace - Advisor Groups

Advisor groups allow for data driven groups based on Registrar data. Google group membership automatically updates to match advisor's advisees 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
