    Thank you for the idea submission.

    You can currently connect a seed list to a database and a query.

    Details on seed lists:

    Details on database connection:

    Just confirming that your end goal is expressly for contact lists.

    (BTW as a work around you could generate a query that calls the contact list and thus attaches your seed list.)

    Thank you,

    Hi Beth!

    I believe this was submitted by the APICIL team for which the work around isn't, if I'm not mistaken, as straight forward as they are triggering the sends from Unica / HCL Campaign.

    Having it as an option for the Contact List would require a one time setup where as with the Query workaround, I don't think you can select the corresponding Query directly from Unica Campaign but if that's the case then that would be great as well!

    Thank you

    Yes, clients using unica send contact list across so good to be able to set without having to then build a query separately. Also if you could just have a mailing parameter when triggering the send from Unica that would also be ideal. It would also be great to have the ability to choose multiple different seed list at the mailing level in the send experience.

    Hi, we are also facing this issue with a Unica integration whereby a single  multi-region database is required in order to make use of SMS and Mobile push channels across all contacts but this means that Seed lists are now a problem. The only way around this we can currently see within Acoustic is to create a query based on the contact list uploaded from Unica. This removes the ability to automate sends from Unica so is not an ideal solution. Could you please advise on the status of this idea? We agree that either being able to select the seed list at the mailing template level or being able to assign the seed list to the Contact List level.
