Data Studio offers a variety of options that make your work on Almabase easier. One such option is using data studio to create an email group.

Using the filter option on data studio, you can filter out the right records and follow the steps below to create an email group with all these records.


As an example, let's take a look at how we can create an email group for a particular class year (class of 2000)


Step 1 - Add filters to show only the records you need on your email group.

First, we must filter out the records we require on the Email Group. You can do this by adding a filter or individually selecting the records you need. In this case, we can add the "Class Year" filter with the alum that graduated in 2000. (see GIF below 👇).

Step 2 - Select all the records.

Once we have filtered out the required records on data studio, we need to select these records by clicking the check box next to the Column headers.

NOTE: Clicking on the checkbox next to the column headers only selects the records on that page. To select all the records filtered out, you can use the "Click here to select all 65 records." button.

Step 3 - Create an email group with the selected records.

Once all the records required for the email group are selected, you can go to Admin Actions > Communication Center > Create an Email Group.

Here, you can add a name for your email group and select the type of email group.

There are two types of email groups available,

  • List: This is a static list of all the records that you selected. The members of this email group will not be automatically updated.

  • Segment: This is an automatically updating email group based on the applied filters. (If a new user who belongs to the class of 2000 registers for the platform, they will be automatically added to this email group)

That's all it takes to create an email group using Data Studio. Next up, learn how to compose an email.
