ListServ

Join the GIS Colorado ListServ peer conversation and support network. It's free!

The GIS Colorado Listserv has migrated to Google Groups. Great conversations, suggestions, and solutions will be archived and searchable in the new Google Group going forward! NOTE: Any emails sent between 8/6/2020 to 8/11/2020 may have been lost. Please consider resending your request.

 

How it Works

There are two ways to sign up: use an existing Google account or create a new Google account.

Option 1:  Use an existing Google account

  1. Navigate to this link:  https://groups.google.com/a/giscolorado.org/g/list
  2. If you are signed into a Google account, you should see a button for "Apply to join this group."
  3. Look for an invitation email (do check your spam or junk folder) and accept it.
  4. That’s it - you’re done!  A welcome email will be sent by our Group managers once your request is approved.

Option 2:  Create a new Google account 

Access to the new group DOES NOT require a Gmail email address, but it does require a Google account login.
  1. If you don't already have a Google account, you can go to google.com and click the sign in button, then on the sign in page click the "Create Account" link.  
  2. Next, on the create account page, you can sign up with your current email by clicking the "Use my current email address instead" link:
  3. Once you've logged in or signed up, you can go to this link (https://groups.google.com/a/giscolorado.org/g/list) to access the mailing list and click the "Apply to join group" button!   
  4. Look for an invitation email (do check your spam or junk folder) and accept it.
  5. That’s it - you’re done!  A welcome email will be sent by our Group managers once your request is approved.

Not seeing anything?

Check your spam or junk folder for any emails coming tolist@giscolorado.org”. You can create a filter in gmail(https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6579?hl=en) to never mark GIS Colorado Listserv emails as spam. Check with your email client provider for other ways to move these emails into your inbox.   Please contact Questions@giscolorado.org if you receive an error or have any questions.
