How to add additional merge fields to an Education Edge email message

When using an Education Edge query based list to create an email message there are only 3 fields available.  Using a Raiser's Edge list will provide more options to chose.  An imported Education Edge list can be used to add any additional merge fields needed.
  1. In The Education Edge, Query
  2. Create a query that contains the desired group of records (Students, Individuals, Faculty/Staff)
  3. In The Education Edge, Export
  4. Create a new export and filter it on the query created above
  5. Export the desired fields needed for the email message
  6. Save the export as a CSV file
  7. Import the list into NetCommunity
The fields listed in the imported file will now be available as merge fields in the email message.
