Building segment using 'contains'

I have a customer who wants to build a segment based on a field that "contains" a particular string (rather than equals). This is preventing this customer using CM - is there a workaround for this or any update planned?

Hi Redleaf,

I think we're talking about this via support, but if you still need help let us know.

For everyone else, contains isn't possible outside of the email address field, though I've added in a vote for that as a feature. But adding in separate segments should work in this case.

I think this is a must have feature in order to create complexes segments. I can't understand why it's available for email field and not for customs ones...

See why 200,000 companies worldwide love Campaign Monitor.

From Australia to Zimbabwe, and everywhere in between, companies count on Campaign Monitor for email campaigns that boost the bottom line.
