Full Story

Search lets you identify People based on employee data within the Poppulo system. The search results can then be saved and used when sending your communications. 

For instance, if you want to communicate to all employees in London, you can use the Search to locate all employees based in London. Then, Save your Search as a Saved Search and use it to send. As the Saved Search results are dynamic, any employees that leave or join the London office will be removed or added to the Saved Search results, provided you have updated your employee data. Saved Searches run in real time, - ensuring you're always communicating to an up-to-date list of employees. You can also Tag People using Search but Tags should be used for ad-hoc sends as they go out of date easily. 

Use the instructions below to run a search. 

Note: To identify People based on opens, clicks or survey responses, Run a Metric Search.
