Is there a way to identify people who were on a specific list at one time, but have since moved out of that list (because they no longer meet the list criteria)?

Q: Is there a way to identify people who were on a specific list at one time, but have since moved out of that list (because they no longer meet the list criteria)??

 

Short A: Not built-in HubSpot functionality.

 

Longer A:

Since HubSpot properties (including custom properties) track historical data, the best way to handle this sort of use case would be to use a custom contact property -- maybe multiple checkbox or radio button. That way, you could use the 'has ever been any of' criteria in both smart lists and workflows to identify and report on the historical tracking of your contacts.

Thanks Frank...good ideas. 

I ended up using a workflow and static list system for now, but adding a custom property is a great idea
