hello Imkottees, here is the error i get when trying to include "employeeID" in the command:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>New-DynamicDistributionGroup -Name "ztest5" -RecipientFilter {(RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMa
ilbox') -and (EmployeeID -eq 'true') -and (CustomAttribute3 -ne '1a') -and (CustomAttribute10 -ne 'Direct Selling')}
Invoke-Command : Cannot bind parameter 'RecipientFilter' to the target. Exception setting "RecipientFilter": ""Employee
ID" is not a recognized filterable property. For a complete list of filterable properties see the command help.
"(RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMailbox') -and (EmployeeID -eq 'true') -and (CustomAttribute3 -ne '1a') -and (CustomAtt
ribute10 -ne 'Direct Selling')" at position 48."

Open in new window

There is a restriction on properties which can be used in filters. The EmployeeID parameter cannot be used in the filter. Instead you can add EmployeeID to any customattribute and use that customattribute as a filter in this group.
