Creating a Member Profile Table

Overview

MessageGears enables clients to work directly off of existing data schemas, requiring no data mapping or additional synchronization. This can be done through direct SQL queries utilizing the native SQL functionality of each distinct database, allowing users to leverage the power of their internal databases directly.

However, in many cases a small amount of foundational work can enable the marketing team to fully leverage the functionality of our Drag & Drop Audience Builder, providing autonomy to the Marketing team. Below are a few recommendations for developing a client view that best supports an independent marketing team.
