Search Customer Groups

Customer groups are lists of customers.  Customer groups can be used with Modular Mailer to send out emails, the Event Engine, and much more.


The Search Customer Groups page displays the customer groups present in the store.  By default, the customer groups are displayed in order of DO (Display Order).  A different method of sorting can be selected by clicking the up and down arrows in the heading of each column.
