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.


Summary Page: Review Target Group And Enable/Disable

Besides summarizing the target group settings, this screen also contains another important feature - enabling the target group for use in the recipients wizard.

A target group that has been created by the data administrator is not automatically enabled for use in the recipients wizard. The data administrator must explicitly enable the use of each target group.

This is done on the Summary screen by checking (or unchecking) the Yes, allow the definition of recipients based on this target group option.

Target groups need to be enabled individually, giving the data administrator control over the use of each target group. This way, groups can be created in advance, and only enabled when needed. Similarly, target groups can be disabled, preventing users from accessing them, without permanently deleting them.
