As a student at Caruso Law, you will find that there are a number of essential, critical, and/or otherwise consequential messages that are sent to your Pepperdine student email account by members of the Caruso Law administration team over the course of the school year.
Also note that your Pepperdine email will also often contain links to shared files in Google Drive and/or Google Forms that leverage your Pepperdine Google email account security. This means that if you are using a system other than Pepperdine’s Google email, you will be unable to access those files, folders, and forms. To make it easy on yourself, we strongly recommend that you use either the Gmail app on your mobile device or the Google Chrome browser to access your Pepperdine email.
To ensure that you don’t miss these important messages, you may want to highlight them in some way. One easy way to do this is by using an email filter.
To create an effective filter you will create a “rule” in your Pepperdine Google Mail inbox using either the sender’s email address and/or significant terms to have Google Mail tag or sort or file the relevant messages for you. Your rule can automatically apply a “star” to the message in your message list and/or add it to a folder using “labels.”
When you create your rule(s) you will need to have some specific terms and/or email addresses that Google Mail will look for.
An important address that you’ll want to use is the one that the Dean’s Suite uses: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also you will want to watch for: ExamSoft and Examplify because these terms will inevitably be related to critical messages associated with mid term and final exams.
