NPrinting: Apply filter based on Recipient Group

Hello Everyone,

So I have some confusion with NPrinting.  My scenario involves multiple Recipients being members of multiple Recipient Groups.  What I would like to do, is have a Filter attached to a Recipient Group, and then email everyone in that Reicpient Group the report created after that filter is applied.  However, NPrinting only allows Filters at the Recipient level, NOT at the group level as I thought. 

What's the best way to have "Filter Applied based on Group" -> "Report Created" -> "Emailed to Members of Group"

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I think its not possible in Nprinting.

Reach out to Nprinting Support, they will provide some workarounds for the above scenario .

Why not set up the group at the email level, as in an email group that has the individual email addresses as members.

Then in NPrinting just use this email group as a single recipient with your filter applied.

Bill,

Are you suggesting using the Notifications tab in the group at the CC level to assign an email to the Group?

The solution is to add a filter to the Recipients Import file since Filters are applied Task->Report->Recipient.  Then, when you tell the report to cycle through the fields of importance, the Recipients will only get the reports that match their filtered params.

I hate to practice thread necromancy, but that won't work because you can't have a filter attached to a Group.  The end result is that you end up with as many Report Tasks as you have variables, and they all will send a completely different email to the end user.

There is no solution to this problem that doesn't require a large amount of manual labor.
