Relevant Product: Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365
You want to create a signature and apply it to users based on user attributes, within the Azure Active Directory. For example, you want to create a signature for all users within a given department or who are based at a certain office, and so on.
Advanced Queries allow you to be more specific about which users will have a signature applied. With this feature, you can define queries which are based on user attributes within Microsoft 365 (that is, Azure Active Directory).

- From the Start With drop-down, select the starting point for the query.
The different options available are:
- No-one: Select this option to start the query with No-one. This means that the query starts with no user and adds matched users.
- Everyone: Select this option to start the query with all users. This means that the query starts with everyone (all users) and removes matched users.
- Click Add Condition to add the selected options (conditions) to the query.
- The query row is added.
To define the query further, you can use the series of fields available:
- From the then drop-down, select what should happen with users who match this query.
- If you selected No-one to start with, then the default value for this is Add.
- If you selected Everyone to start with, then the default value for this is Remove.
- From the users where drop-down, select an attribute that needs to be matched:
- From the is drop-down, select how the attribute value should be queried (this means: is, contains, starts with and so on)
- In the Value box, enter the required value that needs to be matched.
- If required, click Add Condition to add more query rows.
- Click OK to confirm and close the Advanced Query window. You will be directed to the Add person/group window, where the Advanced Query field will display the query you just created.
