Audience Builder (OnQ) – Admin User Guide

Overview

There are many setup and configurations that an Audience Builder Administrator can perform. For example,

  1. Configure the Audience Builder Library look and field
  2. Define which fields are available for output, match evaluation and reports
  3. Define the contact rules that drive your query counts

Configuring OnQ

Once a profile has been created, you can

  • Configure which fields to display and in what order in the Audience Builder Library (displayed on the Left Hand Side of the Audience Builder query screen)
  • Decide the fields applicable for Audience Builder output, Match Eval and Audience Builder reports (Cross Hatch, Field Count and Demo Report)
  • Define the default Contact Rules for queries

Configuring the OnQ Library

  1. In the Audience Builder application for your brand, ensure you have selected the profile you want to configure.

  4. The overlay displays Your Current Audience Builder Library fields on the right side and Available Fields on the left. There are seven basic categories of Audience Builder fields available:
    1. Customer Contact such as email, phone and address fields
    2. Email such as opens, clicks, Fatigue Calendar
    3. Customer Demographics, Product and Behaviors will display only the ones you had selected in the Profile Settings
    4. Modeling Demographics are the customer demographics counts as of the date you start the current issue close. Only the demographics and products you have selected in Profile Settings would appear here.
    5. Query Fields are the queries you had saved previously as query fields within this profile.
  5. To search for fields within the Available Fields section, select a category in the dropdown, enter the search term in the search box and click the magnifying glass icon. If the search matches a field name, a plus symbol will appear to the left of the category within which it resides. Click the “+” to find your matching fields.

  6. If a field within Available Fields is greyed out, it means it has already been added into your Audience Builder Library. To see where it resides in the Audience Builder Library, just click the magnifying glass icon – even when greyed out – and its position in the Audience Builder Library will be highlighted.

Similar to Excel, you can select multiple fields to be added, removed or rearranged by using the Ctrl key.

  1. To add fields into your Audience Builder Library, you can drag and drop the fields or use the Add > button. (This issue should be resolved, even when you use drag and drop the content will load automatically)
  2. To remove fields from your Audience Builder Library, you can drag and drop the fields, use the < Remove button or use the “X” icon. Be very cautious when removing fields as any existing queries with removed fields will no longer work. Do not remove any Email fields without receiving prior Elist team’s approval.
  3. To create new folders within your Audience Builder Library, click the New Folder icon, enter the folder name and hit Enter.
  4. To rearrange any folders or fields, you can drag and drop them or use the up/down/left/right icons.
  5. To rename any folders or fields, click the Rename Item icon or double-click the field, type in the new name and hit Enter. Be very cautious as this will change the name in both the Available Fields and the Audience Builder Library.

Refresh Counts re-runs all the selections in your current query. For instance if you queried the Fatigue Calendar 2 hours ago and you want to update your counts to pull in any new deployments, then refresh your counts.
