Re: Community Newsletter

@Fellsteruk when you filter by role and send a private message to a large cohort of users, how do you enter those usernames into the To: field? I was playing around with this on our stage instance and I copied and pasted usernames from an export in the admin tool, but pasting them into the PM field did not work, even after I added semicolons.

Thanks,

Ryan
