How can I create a new data set from a certain subset of people?
Applies to: TMG

Answer: This can often be accomplished by simply generating a List of People report that is filtered for the target group (e.g., "Is a descendant of ID # 23"). Use the Secondary Output option to create a new data set from the people who appear in the output.

If the target group can't be identified through a single filter, then you can create a custom flag (e.g., MyGroup) to identify members of the group. You can set the value of the MyGroup flag manually for individuals or you can use the List of People report to globally change the flag for people who meet certain conditions.

Then generate a List of People report that is filtered for MyGroup=Y and use the Secondary Output option to create a new dataset from that group.
