Exclusion Lists & Help via email

Exclusion Lists & Help via email

Hey there! It would be great to have an efficient way to create exclusion lists. The tag system is a cumbersome process to go through when the goal is to simply send an email to List A, but exclude anyone who is also on List B. If a checkbox-to-exclude feature became a reality, you'd have a lot of happy customers! (I did search the "Constant Contact Community" when trying to find out how to exclude a list BTW.) 

 

Also, why don't you have a simple "email us" button somewhere? There's a tweet option, a call option, etc., but since ya'll are in the email business.... you know...

 

I didn't necessarily want to post this particular message to the entire "community" but I couldn't find a way to just email my exclusion list request to your developers.

 

Thanks,

Kim

Only allowing us to add, not subtract, makes the entire process very clunky. Allow us to say: I want LIST A, except for those who are also in LIST B. This ought to be a basic function of a database, yet it's not present here.

Agree!

I'm tired of time-wasting clunky work-arounds. The capacity to compile a mailing by subtracting lists as well as adding them is a common practice in many CRM-systems, and I want to see it included within CC.

Three cheers, Jamazio. Agreed.

Please create a function for list suppression.  For example, I would like to be able to upload a list of all donors who contributed to my nonprofit in November. When sending a solicitional email in December, I need to be able to suppress the list of November donors.

 Can't believe this is still missing. Years later.

Yes, this is badly needed.
