How to Create Form Subscription Contact Folder Filtering

The facility to add an email or any other type of subscriber to a Microsoft Contact folder was introduced in the FAQ on creating a form. The purpose of adding a contact to segregated Microsoft Outlook contact folder is more than just 'providing a backup' as many see it. The lists are used when sending text messages to groups of users, they synchronise to your phone so you're aware of who people are when they call, and it provides for other types of Microsoft integration, such as messaging and Teams. The scope of the advantages is significant, so we recommend you action the contact filtering even if you don't initially expect to use any of the integrated features. The contact folders are segregated so they won't interfere with your standard contact lists.

If you take your marketing seriously, we cannot stress how important appropriate contact folder segregation and grouping is to your continued marketing success.

Facebook Tip: Contacts in any Microsoft Contact Folder that are populated from any source become good sources of data for Facebook lookalike and other audience types. See the FAQ on How to Create a Facebook Audience in Yabber .

SMS Campaigns: You may send SMS Campaigns to groups of users from within various Microsoft Contact Folders - even if they're not (currently) linked to Yabber. See the FAQ on How to Send an SMS Campaign to a Group of Recipients

As you can tell, the Contact Folders are a quasi means of managing contacts outside of your CRM. Your CRM isn't a marketing tool - Yabber is.

  Contact Filtering When Creating a Form

When you create a form, you may define the specific Contact Folder associated with this form. This sensible method will allow each contact to be truly segregated by the objective and campaign. If you choose to apply filtering, then this FAQ will apply. You may affectively ignore this FAQ if you explicitly define the destination Contact Folder.

All Microsoft-related email-related 'filtering' options (with the exception of Calendars) are generally found in the 'Filtering' submenu.

  Creating Contact Folder Filters

The Contact Folder filtering requires that you first define a default contact folder. This folder is used if the defined folder cannot be found or doesn't exist. If nothing is defined, contacts are sent into your parent contact folder and not into a list - not recommended. After you define your default folder, move through all your lists and assign them to a specific contact folder. You may define the default folder as the destination, but this, once again, defats the purpose of segregated audiences.
