Searching contacts by "Country"

by Soi_Cat_Amy on ‎06-20-2011 12:05 PM

hiiii.... love me my constant contact!!

 

BUT, here is an issue:

 

sometimes i want to target my emails by the country someone is from. but not all of our subscribers have countries listed (and that's OK).

 

when i try to search contacts by country, i am ONLY allowed to search for one that "match exactly" whichever checkbox i use. but i want to search for the ones that DONT match any of them! i like them clickboxes, but this is annoying.

 

ive downloaded my contacts and reuploaded with a custom field set for contacts without country codes so i can search on that. but there has gotta be a better way, yeah?

 

thanks!

Hi Amy,

 

Thanks for your post. What countries are missing from the drop down menu when you try to search your contacts by Country?

 

I can pass on your feedback to our Product Developers to see if this is something we can change or enhance in the future. Would having more options to search by (rather than just "Match Exactly"), be helpful?

 

Let me know what you think :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks,

dear jarrad, thanks for answering!

 

as far as i know no countries are missing from the dropdown...

 

what i need to do is search for my contacts that have no country listed.

 

more options to search by, ie, "does not contain" could solve that, as could a checkbox for "blank" or "no country".

 

thanks!
