Creating a Rule Based Group

The group builder allows campaign audiences to be created based on actions carried out by individuals.
You can build a group which contains contacts based on any of the following:

Creating a Contact Rule

A contact rule is based upon information that is held about an individual in the database.

  1. Click the "Add Rule" button.
  2. Select "Contact Rule" from the drop-down menu provided.

  4. Select a "Contact Field". This is a list of all the user attributes that are held in the database. Select the field from which you would like your contact rule based upon. For example, if you wanted a specific contact added via their email, you would use "EMailLogin" for example.
  5. Select the "Operator". The options include 'Is Equal To', 'Is Not Equal To', etc.
  6. Enter the value that you want to search for. In this case a specific email address has been entered. The system will search for anyone who matches that email in your contact database and add them to the group.
