DESelect August ’19 Release: More filtering options for Salesforce Marketing Cloud

DESelect August '19 Release

In an effort to continuously provide our users better tools to segment and target in Salesforce Marketing Cloud, we have recently released additional filtering options. Now, when you create a DESelect selection, you have the option to use the “IN” and “BETWEEN” filters!

Available for: DESelect Enable, DESelect Plus, DESelect Advanced

The “IN” operator

Using “IN” essentially allows you to list a series of comma separated text values. Previously, when you wanted to filter on several potential values of a picklist field, you would have to create separate filters for every value and use the “OR” operator. For instance:

DESelect filtering on multiple text values using the OR operator

Now instead, you can use the “IN” operator and separate values with a comma:

This is especially useful and time-saving when you have a large number of values.

The “BETWEEN” operator

When you want to filter on a number based on a range, you can now simply use the “BETWEEN” operator:

DESelect filtering a number field using BETWEEN

This filter option is available for fields that have the number and decimal type.

Movable filters

Previously when you incorrectly added a filter (for instance within the wrong “AND”-grouping) you would have to delete this filter and add it again. Not anymore!

It is now possible to simply drag-and-drop filters after they have been added, using the arrows-icon on the right side of the filter.

All of these filtering options are now available for all DESelect editions for Salesforce Marketing Cloud.
