    • Transmittals Private by Default: Mark this checkbox to set all new transmittals to 'Private' by default. A 'Private' transmittal is visible only to users with 'Admin' level permission to the Transmittals tool, the creator of the transmittal, the recipients in the 'To' and 'Cc' fields, and members of the 'Default Distribution' list.

    • Default Distribution: Add one (1) or more people to the default distribution group. To appear in this list, a person must be added to the Project Directory (see Add a User Account to the Project Directory ).  The system will automatically add these group members to new transmittals.

  4. Click Update.
    A banner appears to confirm that your changes have been saved.
