Active and inactive companies - how to find them? 🙇‍♀️

Learn how to find companies based on their activity status

How do I find active companies on Vainu? 

As default, when you make any search in Vainu, the companies you see will be ones that are active. You can see the company's status when you open any prospect card in Vainu. The status will be the very first thing mentioned. If a company is active, you'll see their status marked "active" with a green text. Inactive companies will get a red font telling you that the company is inactive.

How do I find inactive companies on Vainu? 

First, make a normal list search with the preferred filters. 

You will see above the name of your new dynamic list, there is a Settings button. Click on the button, and you will see a dropdown menu. Simply click on "Show inactive companies" and your list will show all inactive companies that match your search. It's just that easy!

Your list will then show companies that have a Discontinued icon on them. In some cases the icon may have other text on it too, for example indicating if the company has gone in to administration. You are still able to view the companies and the data we have of them.

❗️ Inactive companies come with some caveats. Please note, that when looking at inactive prospects, you are not able to: 

1. Search by the date the company's status changed from active to inactive.

2. Inactive companies cannot be exported out as .csv files at the moment. Exporting to your CRM will work just fine.
