Note: "Exclusion Query" means searching for people who are NOT something. Not named Smith, not donors, not in the city of Springfield, etc.
One of the capabilities that makes NationBuilder so great is its list-building functionality. However, regardless of the platform, sometimes creating and refining your lists can be tricky - particularly when you’re trying to create a list that excludes a certain group of people, rather than filtering on an inclusion basis. Lucky for us, NationBuilder has tools to help!
The best way to build a list of people based on filters and tags is to use the “List” function, located under the “People” tab.
On the People window you will notice a "+" and "-" on the top left (under "+ New Person"). You will also notice "+" signs under people's profile picture. Clicking these buttons allow you to add people to a list. When you have a list selected, you will notice the "+" changes to a "-" allowing you remove people from a list.
