The Altru Luminate Online Connector uses and Altru Odata feed to exclude constituents from upcoming emails in a marketing campaign. Normally, the exclusion query will exclude constituents that were in the original appeal process you used to import records to Luminate Online that have taken an action since the first email was sent to the constituent. In this example we display how to create a query to remove constituents that have given a donation in the appeal was sent. We will also review what fields are required and how fields need to be named to import into Luminate Online.

At this point in time we have created a query that will find constituent records that received the appeal mailing and have a revenue transaction after the date of the mailing. In some cases you may need to add additional query fields if you are targeting specific types of revenue records or sales order information. Now that we have the record lets discuss the fields that are required by Luminate Online import process and how we properly configure the Altru query to pull these fields correctly. In order for the import to work correctly Altru query fields must be renamed to match Luminate Online Field Names.
