Hi there,

I noticed that the 'does not contain' filter option is gone in Pipedrive. That is such a shame, we use it so much in our filtering of the CRM.

For example, as in the image below. We'd like to filter out all people in this area, but not the 'data' people. How do I do that without using the 'does not contain' filter? :/

Putting the feature back would be of great value to us.

Thanks,

Bram

    Another use case that we use. Filter out people for a certain campaign, or a certain keyword in the campaigns field. Can't do that anymore now 😭.

    Hi @Bram

    We have updated some limits in our Filtering system and indeed "does not contain" is not possible to use on the new filters anymore. All previously saved Filters should continue working, but no edits possible if there are unsupported conditions.

    In your case, if these are single or multiple-option fields, you can use them under ALL conditions defining what is the value (as opposed to what is not).

    However, I understand that in your use case the "does not contain" option was preferred and simpler, so will share this with our team as feedback to review in this change.

    Yes, please put the filtering option "does not contain" back ASAP! Currently we are losing money due to this change! Sales people spend time trying to figure out how to filter data and receive result they need instead of spending time to call clients. :(

    This filtering option was absolutely essential for accounting towards our clients.

    Now we have to do everything within Excel which is even more of a hassle. Please revert this change. The least what could have been done is informing the users in advance that have filters which contain this condition. That also didn't happen.

    That filter was crucial for managing our leads. The job of Pipedrive is to make the database management easier not harder. It is a waste of our time and money having to export to excel to manage our data in this case

    Please bring that filter back!

    We need this solution. Please add "does not contains" filter. I also do not understand why you remove it.

    We need this too. Pipedrive filters are generally poor compared to other analytics solutions and having basic "does not contain" is the least we can expect.
