Target Group Definition - Let LISTSERV Select Recipients From a Database or LDAP Directory

To create a new target group, select New Recipient Target Group... from the menu (or go via the right-click menu of the Target Groups node or a target group folder in the subscriber warehouse).
Note: If the new target group has not the desired type "Let LISTSERV Select Recipients From a Database or LDAP Directory", you can change the target group type on the source page.

The Target Group Definition wizard lets you define a target group of the "Let LISTSERV Select Recipients From a Database or LDAP Directory" type that can then be used in the recipients wizard to define the recipients of a job.

The wizard for a target group of the "Let LISTSERV Select Recipients From a Database or LDAP Directory" type has multiple pages:
General, Source, Parameters, Input Layout, Input Preview, Recipients Details, and Summary.

The top row of the wizard displays links to these pages. The page that is currently open is marked with a highlighted background color. Depending on the choices made on some of the wizard pages, other pages may become disabled or may be shown in different versions. If a wizard page is disabled, then it means that the page is not necessary with the current choices and can safely be ignored.


Recipients Details Page: Customize Email, Name and Other Merge Header Names

Define how the result columns from the query that is executed by LISTSERV shall be used.

In the Email Column field, enter the name of the column in the result that contains the email addresses of the recipients. This field is mandatory.

Optionally, you may also specify the Name Column field, the column that contains the recipient names. If this column is specified, then the names found here are used in the "To:" field of the mail, in addition to the recipient's address. This makes each message more personalized.

Another available option is to specify the names of other columns found in the result. In the Merge Columns field, enter one column name per line. The column names entered must match the column names in the result exactly. Leading or trailing spaces on a line, and empty lines, are ignored. All of the column names, including the email and name column specified above, can then be used as merge fields in the text of the message. Merged fields take the form "&NAME;", where NAME is the name of the column.
