Is there a way to make an excluding list

Situation:

I want to resend an invitation for an event to one list. I don't want to send it to the people that allready subscribed through a form linked with another list.


Does anyone know a simple sollution to this situation?

Hi MichielVB, your best bet here is to create and use segments to exclude folks who are subscribed to this other list. We don't have the ability to exclude lists just yet, however I'll happily add your vote for this and let you know if it's something we add in the future.

Thanks, MichielVB - please let us know if you have any questions about this :)

You can't exclude subscribers from another list using the options in the segment builder. Segments only apply to the list your working with.

The simplest (but not ideal) way to do an exclude list is to remove the subscribers from your list (http://help.campaignmonitor.com/topic.aspx?t=140), send, then add them back in.

This is a common tactic for more sophisticated email programs. I'm hoping CM gets this feature rolled out soon.

Hi thgore, thanks for the follow-up here, I should have been clearer - you can only use segments on one list. I should have also elaborated on my approach - to add a 'Registered' custom field as to distinguish who has registered and who has not. In retrospect, my instructions were terrible :P

I'm more than happy to add your vote for exclusion lists in the app - we've had a few people request them, so hopefully it's something we look into. Thanks, thgore! We really appreciate you chiming in here :)
