Settingup a group fax number

I want to set up a group fax number so that I can send communications to all our Pharmacies in Southwark at the same time. How do I do this?

The model I have is Brother 2820. I am not sure if this is the latest model or an older one. Serial number: E63380C7J271588

I also need to do this for the Brother MFC-8860DN model.
Serial number: E64052G8J732701

Hope you can help.

Thanks,

Ian Townson

    Where do I find the 'brodcast mode'. It isn't on the 'menu'. Also when I find this - what do I do then? Do I tap in all the individual fax numbers of each pharmacy and then save them before sending stuff? I need more isntructions on this. Can you help?

You can send a fax to up to 142 fax numbers, using any combination of dialing methods:
- One-touch Speed Dialing (up to 32 destinations)
Press the desired One-Touch Speed dial button(s)
- Coded Speed Dialing (up to 100 destinations)
Press [Coded Dial] > enter the 2 digit code (00-99) using the numeric buttons and be sure to press [Coded Dial] before each code
- Regular dialing and redialing (10 destinations)
Enter the number using the numeric buttons or [Redial/Pause] and be sure to press [Set] after each entry with the numeric keys

After all the numbers are listed, press [Start]. The machine will scan in the document (memory) and then begin sending it to the destinations in numerical order, starting with One-Touch, then Coded and finally the numbers dials with the numeric keys.

You can also create a group if you frequently send faxes to the same group of people by first saving them as One-Touch and then adding them to a new group.

How do I send one fax to multiple receipents?


you need to set up a group to send to. So if the group is always changing this may not help much.

Groups allow you to send the same fax message to multiple numbers (broadcasting). You can store the Groups on your One-Touch keys or SpeedDial locations and then broadcast by pressing a One-Touch key and Fax Start or by pressing Search/Speed Dial, the three digit location and FaxStart. First, you will need to store each fax number you wish to includein your Group as either a One-Touch or Speed Dial number. Then, you can combine these numbers into a group. Finally, you can have up to six Groups, or you can assign up to 131 numbers to one large Group. Each Group uses one One-Touch key or Speed Dial location. To set up a Group, please follow these steps:


1. Press Menu, 2 (Fax), 3 (Set Auto Dial), 3 (Setup Groups).


2. Press the One-Touch key on which you wish to store the Group or pressSearch/Speed Dial followed by the three-digit Speed Dial location where you wish to store the Group. The LCD will read SETUP GROUP:G0 ENTER & SET.

Net satisfaxtion (Fax Back) is not able to use OUtlook distribution lists. After choosing the distribution list, TO: and returning to the Send page, there is nothing in TO: and I cannot send the group fax


Make sure that the contacts in the distribution list have fax numbers entered in their contact information. If they don't, then the behavior you described... where no recipients are shown in the TO: field... will happen when selecting a distribution list. If only some of the contacts in the distribution list have fax numbers, then only those contacts will appear in the TO: field.

Is there a way to program it to fax to a group of numbers at one time


You can use the "Broadcast " feature to send one fax to up to 112 numbers listed in your speed dial. To set this up:
  1. Insert the original into the ADF.
  2. Press Quick Scan/Reports. The display should show how much memory is available.
  3. Enter the One-Touch or Speed Dial numbers for the recipients you want to send to (one after the other). You can also setup a group dial number.
  4. Press Fax Start. The machine will scan the document into memory and then dial all the numbers you've entered. If any are busy it will attempt to redial.
  5. Press Stop/Exit at any time to cancel the broadcast.
If you need further instruction on how to setup group or speed dial numbers, Brother provides the user manual online.

Hope this helps!
