Default setting to exclude lists

Joshi

It would be great if there was a way for a specific list (smart or static) to always appear as 'Excluded' on all email send-outs, as a default. While in most cases we would like to retain this list as excluded, the user could still manually choose to remove the list from the 'Excluded' field. 

 

As far as I am aware, currently Exclude lists (like Include lists) must be added by the user at the time of send. There's no feature to add this list automatically.

 

While I understand that the reason behind this is to give the user the most control over their send, but in certain cases it'd be useful to have this feature to prevent from unintended email send cross-over or from targetting certain audience groups.

Yess!! This is what I was asking about as well.

This is especially important now with the GDPR entering our lives. 

We do not want to send unwanted emails to our opt-out list, and a tool as robust as Hubspot should accommodate the need to exclude lists as part of the template of an email campaign.

Agree! This would be a great feature to exclude competitors in general.

I agree, this would be a great function instead of having to remember to manually enter this

+1 vote! Definitively handy to have a way to exclude certain lists by default on all outgoing marketing emails. Our main use case is to avoid someone receiving too many emails if they take part of multiple segmentation lists.

I agree as well! We have a list of clients that we always want to exclude as a default, as much we we try to implement other practices to exclude them, this default functionality would be extremely useful. Perhaps it can be implemented at the template level?
