Add Members to a Sub-Community using a Data Viewer Query
Select a sub-community from the Available sub-communities dropdown, then build a query using Data Viewer to automatically add members to a sub-community.  Membership will be automatically updated nightly.

For example,
for an Accounting Department sub-community:

  • Select the Accounting Department sub-community from the dropdown
  • Create a query (or use a saved query) to find all constituents in the Accounting Department.  (Department = Accounting)
  • Save the query.  It's best to give it the same or similar name as the sub-community.  (If you don't give the query a name, the system assigns one. It can be edited in the saved query list in Data Viewer.)

Constituents who meet the criteria for the query will be added to sub-communities in the nightly processing.  This process will also remove from a sub-community a member that no longer meets the criteria defined in the query.

Constituents that are added or removed from a sub-community by an admin action are excluded from being added/removed from existing or future saved sub-community queries that drive sub-community membership.

Click  to delete a query.  Click OK in the confirmation box to complete the deletion.

Click on the Query Name to view the specifics of the query.

NOTE:  Only one (1) query can be used for each sub-community.
