Contact Zone:Contact Verify:Output Filter
|Contact Verify Navigation|
The Contact Verify Component will output records in up to four streams. The Output Filter tab allows you to control which records go to which stream. Names and usage can be done in any manner. Filters are evaluated from the top down.
The output status of a record is returned via result codes returned by the underlying objects. The Component will combine them into a single, comma-delimited string and write them to the field mapped here. New field names can be created by typing the name into the Output Results Code box.
Select a filter to determine which records will be directed to a particular output stream. A custom filter may be created based on individual need, each pin filters the records in a cascading effect, where the results code is compared against the first expression (Pin 1) and then compared against Pin 2, and so on.
- No Filter
- All records are written to a single output stream.
- Pre-built Filter
- The Component comes with several pre-built filters for common applications:
- Full Address Matches - The record is valid only with a valid and deliverable mailing address.
- Street Address Matches - The record is valid if the street address is deliverable, even if the suite information is missing.
- Full Address Match and Deliverable by all carriers - The record is valid only with a valid and deliverable mailing address that is also served by alternate delivery services such as Fed Ex and UPS.
- Non-Questionable Names - The record is valid if the name information was complete and contains no questionable information (vulgarities or common nuisance names).
- Valid Email Domains - The record is valid if the domain for the email address was either confirmed to be valid or, at the very least, is not known to be invalid.
- Valid and Allowable Email Domains - The record is valid if the domain for the email address was either confirmed to be valid or is not known to be invalid, and is not a mobile email address (which are not deliverable per FCC regulations).
- Full Phone Matches - The record is valid only if the phone number was verified to the 10-digit level.
- Full and Partial Phone Matches - The record is valid if the phone number was verified to either the 10-digit or 7-digit level.
- Custom Filter
- A custom rule that would be equivalent to Pre-built rule #6 would read: “(ES01 OR ES03) AND NOT ES04.”
- This means that the conditions for the rules are met if either result code “ES01” or “ES03” were returned and the result code “ES04” was not returned.
- For more information, see Custom Output Filters below.
- The output which is filtered is saved in a file.
Custom rules are an advanced subject. You should be comfortable with Boolean operations before using custom rules in a production environment.
