Scenario for Managing Global Target Lists
This topic gives one example of how global target list management might be used. You might use global target list management differently, depending on your business model.
An administrative assistant has been asked to send personalized birthday gifts to all of the company's top clients who have birthdays in the upcoming month, March. She uses Global Target List Management to help her create a set of activities, one activity for each gift she must purchase and send.
First, she notices that the company administrator has already prepared a list of the top clients. This top-client list is not a private list and so the list can be used by the administrative assistant.
Next, she queries for company contacts who have birthdays in March and saves these records to a private list, which she calls March-birthdays.
Then, she combines her March-birthdays list and the companies top-client list. The list resulting from this intersection contains the company's top clients who have birthdays in March.
The last step is to create an activity for each client in the final list. Each activity can be marked completed when the client's gift has been sent.
