Start by opening up your old dynamic search or create a new one from which you want to add companies to these static lists.

Move a company to a saved static list

  1. Select a company by pressing the check mark button on the lower-left of the company profile.


​2. After selecting a company or companies you wish to move to a static list a “Add to lists” button will appear on the left corner of your list.


​3. You can move these companies to an existing static list by clicking “Add to list” or you can create a new static list by clicking “Create a new list”. Select the list you wish to transfer these companies to.

NOTE! You can only move companies to static lists. Static lists are manually made lists of companies that can be made from Excel lists or by manually moving companies to their own list. Dynamic lists are created with Vainu filters and those don’t appear on this view.


Remove/exclude companies from your dynamic or static lists

  1. Open up a list you wish to edit or start from a new list


2. Open up the filters and use the “Lists” filter option

3. Select the “Include & Exclude selected lists” filter


4. Select which list you wish to remove from your results. Only static lists can be removed from your search results.

The logic of removing companies is that all companies found on the static list will be removed from your search. This way you can easily keep track which companies have been removed from your search and you can use the same static list to filter out other searches without having to create a new list.

NOTE! Only static lists can be removed from your search. Dynamic lists which are made using Vainu filters can not be removed from your search. Please refer to the beginning of this article to see how you can move companies to their own list.
