Or perhaps even better: filter only other Dynamic Distribution Groups that have the letters NZ in the name.

Under: domain.com/Business Support - only

Thank you. But the following is listing all DynamicDistributionGroups with NZ in the name. I just want to filter DynamicDistributionGroups that come under domain.com/Business Support and any additional OU's in Business Support.
   
Any ideas?

Dont trust the preview, it is a bug. Try it it works only for groups in the specified OU

Haha. Stupid Microsoft. I suppose it does actually say 'Select the recipient container where you want to apply this filter'
 
How do I amend it to filter: NZ, WA, NSW
