A configuration template stores a set of sendout settings that you can apply automatically when you create or copy a group. This template-based option to create and store sendout settings can streamline your sendout process within your Mapp Engage platform, or if you connect externally.

Add Owner as Member
Adds the group owner as a member of the group. This membership is no different from any other contact that is added to the group and can be deleted at any time.
To join the group as a member, the owner must have a contact profile. A system user who does not have a contact profile is not a member of any groups, even if he or she is a group owner.
When selected, the group is created as a SuperGroup. A SuperGroup makes it possible to create and send a message to more than one group at a time. A message sent to a SuperGroup is sent to all of the members of all of the subgroups.
