A brief description of super lists and sub lists followed by instructions on how to create them.
A super list is like an umbrella list, under which, there are one or more lists called sub list(s). If a message is sent to the umbrella list, then that message will also be sent to the sub list(s). Note that members of more than one sub list under the same super list will not receive the same message more than once.
In order to create super lists and sub lists, you need to login to the web interface.
Then you need to create your sub list(s) followed by your super list. This is just like creating a normal list.
Click on the blue "admin" icon beside the super list, you have just created.
Click on "Edit List config", then click on "Data sources setup".
There is a box underneath "List inclusion". In this box, type in the name of a sub list. After you have done this, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "Update".
Once the page reloads, you will see another box underneath the first one. If you have another sub list, type in the name of that list, then click "Update".
Repeat till you have included all your sub lists.
