Allow nested queries to trigger programs

currently programs can not be triggered by a query that references another query inside of it, which Automated Message Groups and regular mailings allow. Please fix this! right now we have to either create one large complex query (which a change may necessitate multiple quries being updated) or trigger the first email that should be in a program with an AMG and then trigger the rest of the program on a simple of query of who was sent that mailing, but that splits reporting between AMGs and Programs

How will this idea be used?

This would allow people to use nested queries to update multiple queries simultaneously (i.e. when a new product is added to a category, or when a new page is created that should trigger interest in a product type) with programs. current limitation of no nested queries in programs is extremely inefficient

    Completely agree with this one. This was on the old Idea board too.

    They finally allowed RT criteria to be included in Program Entrance Queries. This is a logical next step!

    Our use case is that we have a standard suppression query and we want it included in the entrance criteria to exclude those people. Other option is to make it an exit criteria but why do i want all of those extra people entering the program in the first place?

    We agree! We need to look at performance impacts and what should happen if/when the "sub-query' changes.
