Is Empty logic in Member of Engagement Program filter

Anyone have any idea what the "is empty" logic is supposed to mean for the Program constraint of the Member of Engagement Program filter?ProgramIsEmpty.png

The above filter gives 0 leads. I'm not sure if this is just a cryptic name for something  useful or a bug. From what I understood, to filter for people who are not in any program, I would use "false" for the first constraint and "is any" for the second (gives about half our database).

If I set it to "false" and "is empty", it gives me my entire database:

Hi Grant,

Nice pick. The same applies to member of program. The results are logical.

member of no program gets 0 leads. Not a member of no program gives you the whole DB.

Honestly, it must have slipped through the cracks of PM

Hi Greg,


I see your logic, but when I use "Member of Engagement Program" "false" "is any", it gives half my database (in other words, half of our records are not members of any engagement program). So the "member of no engagement program" logic you describe should give the other half. I think this has some other meaning. I think your right this must've slipped through the cracks.

Hi again Grant,

I should have written

Member of the NULL program (program name is empty) -> No one

Not a member of the NULL Program --> every one.

Again, this makes sense to me, but I find it useless and I feel the "program is empty" constraint should just not be there.
