Remove and exclude companies from your lists

Learn how to use the Include & Exclude selected target groups filter and static lists to remove or exclude companies from lists.

Want to remove a group of companies from a dynamic list? It's possible by creating a static list of the companies you don't want to include in your search results, and then exclude that static list from your dynamic search. Read more >> here.


  1. Select a company by clicking on the Checkmark button on the lower left of the company profile.

​3. Now 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 want to transfer these companies to.

NOTE! You can only move companies to static lists. Dynamic lists are created with Vainu filters and those don’t appear in this view.

6. Click Apply filter ✅

 

The logic of removing companies is that all companies found on the static list will now be excluded from your search. This way you can easily keep track of 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.
