nFE 2014 & 2015 Filtering Queries for Child Accounts

Some organizations have different departments, chapters, sub-groups, etc. Because these different groups may have different query needs, Informz has a filtering mechanism for netFORUM Enterprise queries. Informz can provide a subset of netFORUM Enterprise queries to any child accounts that branch from your main account. This way, if you have multiple groups using Informz, you can organize and separate your subscribers with absolute precision.


To create a subset, you must create a list filter, enclosed in parentheses, in the query name. You are only required to include this filter text after the initial text of“Informz” in the query name. Below are two examples of how a filtered query might appear named:

  • Informz (Child Account) – Query 1
  • Informz Query 1 (Child Account)

Informz associates the unique string with a child account so that retrieval is limited to queries (target groups) with the filter. This can be done during the initial implementation process or whenever a child account is created.

As with any queries for Informz in netFORUM Enterprise, all child account queries must begin with the text “Informz.” Query names without a parenthetical list filter appear in the parent account by default.

Now that you have an understanding of the basic syntax for filtered queries, try them for yourself! Just remember that the unique string needs to be associated with that child account. If you have any questions, never hesitate to reach out to your Advisor.
