How to specify which email address should be used for a group created in Gmail Contacts?
In the group list, there is a drop-down field that looks like it could be used for selecting the email to use for this group. But it has no effect.
The problem is summed up in the postscript to this post by Drummond Reed here:
Postscript: logging into my personal Gmail account tonight, I noticed they have a new UI for Contacts. And guess what? The group member email address selection feature is gone again.
What is Google thinking?
There is a workaround, as detailed in a comment to that post. Use the old Contacts interface.
Here's the full workaround:
Leave the Contacts preview
After all, why use one step when you can use seven?
With Google's new updated Contacts I was unable to access the old interface as described by klenwell.
My workaround is as follows:
Limitations: This workaround only serves to change the contact's primary email address - this email address will be used in all groups. I was unable to find a way to specify different email addresses for different groups.
