Quick Lists

Smartspace now allow users to create lists which can be used to populate other groups.

Administrators can create the lists themselves or get their customers/members to do it for themselves online (or a combination of both)

To prevent the selection of lists to become to cluttered over time, the lists are accessed through the Quick Lists Category Type.

A short one off configuration is required to acheive full functionality.

You will need to navigate to the Database Manager to create and manage the lists.
