Reproducing the Issue


You created an extension field ABC (ABC represents your created extension field) in the Contacts TI on header level, and added the extension scenario Contact – General Information to Target Group – Contact Selection to it.

You intend to use it as criteria to target Contacts in your Member Determination.

  1. Go to the Sales Campaign workcenter.
  2. Go to the Target Group view.
  3. Click New.
  4. Name your Target Group and check the Member Determination flag.
  5. Click Save and Open.
  6. Go to the Member Determination facet.
  7. Under the Contact section, click Add.
  8. Add field ABC as a condition.
  9. Save.
  10. Set the Determination for Immediate.
  11. Save and Close.

Result: The Member Determination does not return any Contacts. The Target Group is empty.


The extension field you created for Contacts needs to be part of the Add Contacts advanced search of the Target Group Members view.


Extension fields can in this case only be adapted from the Add Contacts pop-up window of Static Target Groups since the Members facet is not displayed in dynamic Target Groups.

You can either adapt the extension field from another existing static Target Group or create a new one:

  1. Go to the Sales Campaign work center
  2. Go to the Target Group view
  3. Click New.
  4. Name the Target Group.
  5. Keep the Member determination checkbox clear.
  6. Save & Open.
  7. Go to the Members tab.
  8. Under the Members section click Add.
  9. Click Add Contacts.
  10. Enter Adaptation mode (click Adapt > Edit Master Layout).
  11. Hover over one of the search fields.
  12. Click the plus icon.
  13. Check Extension field ABC from the list to add it.
  14. Leave adaptation.
  15. Finalize your static Target Group.
  16. Save and Close.


Then proceed to creating your dynamic Target Group:

  1. Go to the Sales Campaign work center.
  2. Go to the Target Group view.
  3. Click New button.
  4. Name your Target group.
  5. Tick the Member determination checkbox.
  6. Save & Open.
  7. Go to the Member Determination tab.
  8. Maintain the determination schedule.
  9. Under the Condition for Account Contacts click Add.
  10. Refine the condition via your extension field ABC.
  11. Save your changes.

Upon Activation the Contacts will be collected.
