Suppression List functionality

I was wondering if there were a way to achieve "suppression list" functionality, by which I mean, I maintain a list of users (call it L) and I want to be able to send pushes to arbitrary other lists normally EXCEPT that these pushes do NOT get sent to users in L (for example, if I were marketing to the users in L through a different channel and I didn't want to hit them with extra marketing).

I didn't see any Urban Airship objects or API calls to do this, so I was wondering if I missed anything or if anyone has any suggestions on how to get this functionality.

Thanks!

Didn't find what you were looking for?

  • Hi Tyler,

    You can do this by creating tag-based segments with NOT logic. You would add a tag to all devices that you do not want to message and then send to all devices which do NOT include this tag.

    Please see more here:
    http://docs.urbanairship.com/api/ua.html#create-segment
    http://docs.urbanairship.com/user-guide/audience.html#segments

    If there is anything else I can do, or if this didn't address your concerns please do not hesitate to write back.

  • Hmm, I thought I already got that comment and marked this resolved. Oh, well. Either way, now it can be marked resolved.
