Alarming On-Call Roster - Outlook Contact Groups

Hello,

Does anyone know if we are able to somehow use Outlook Contact Groups rather than simple Outlook Contacts to populate an ‘On-Call Roster’.

I submitted this idea here:

I am not sure, but you definitely can use a distribution list, which is probably better anyway.

From what I am seeing, a contact group is the same as a distribution list:

Figured out a work around by changing the notification block’s Roster Type to ‘Calculated’ and using something like this code in the script:

outlookContactGroup = {email:[OutlookContactGroup@company.com]}
roster = [outlookContactGroup ]
return roster
