Dynamic Distribution Groups... Using Department OR Custom attribute...

Not open for further replies.


Is it possible to do this?
I want to set up a Dynamic Distribution group using the Department Condition OR custom attribute #1. From what I can see you can only use the Department AND Custom Attribute #1. It has to meet both conditions which is what I do NOT want to do.

My problem is I have a user that is in 2 departments (different cities) and can't figure out how to get him into both dynamic distribution groups and keep everyone else the same.


I have 2 departments that have 2 seperate distribution groups. I have 1 manager that manages both departments. How do I get him in both distribution groups.

1. Can't do it simply by department
2. Can't seem to use custom attribute along with department because it will exlcude the users that dont have the custom attribute.

Not sure if this is just a lapse of functionality that they need to add in version next or if I am missing something that makes me able to match either of the 2 conditions as an OR statement instead of having to matching both as an AND/Where statement.

does that make sense?

I suggest you create one particular Custom Attribute for the member of each Distribution Group, then use that Custom Attribute as the filter to create the each DDG.
