How to find the prospects who have unsubscribed? (#UNSUBSCRIBED tag)
To let you find the prospects who have unsubscribed from your mailing list, we have introduced the #UNSUBSCRIBED tag and the status OPT-OUT.
IN THIS ARTICLE
How it works
When your prospects click the 'unsubscribe' link, their status changes to OPT-OUT. Additionally, they are given the #UNSUBSCRIBED tag.
OPT-OUT is a global status, which means that once the status is changed, Woodpecker will update it everywhere (every campaign and main prospect list).
As a result, scheduled follow-ups won’t be sent. Moreover, such prospects cannot be added to future campaigns. Status OPT-OUT can be changed back to ACTIVE only manually.
Searching by the TAG
1. Open your Prospects database or campaign,
2. Click ‘Tags’ from the ‘filter by’ section,
3. Choose the #UNSUBSCRIBED tag,
4. The prospects who have opted out will be marked as # UNSUBSCRIBED in the ‘TAGS’ column.
You can type the tag in or select it from the list. Sometimes you may need to scroll it if you happen to have a long list. The tags are put in alphabetical order, which means that you’ll find the #UNSUBSCRIBED tag at the end of the tag list.
Searching by the STATUS
1. Open your Prospects database or campaign.
2. Click Status.
3. Select 'OPT-OUT'.
Q: You can see the list of prospects but can’t find the 'TAGS' column?
A: Make sure you have the TAGS column shown. You can move this column by dragging it closer to the ‘Email’ section.
How to do that?

Q: The 'TAGS' column is shown but I can't see the #UNSUBSCRIBED tag? Why?
A: In one column you can find a couple of tags. Expand the cell to see all of them.
Q: Can I see the prospects who have unsubscribed on the campaign level?
A: Yes, have a look at the main statistics. Look for the number in the OPT-OUT section, right below your opens. To see who opted out switch to Prospects tab in the campaign and use the filter Status → OPT-OUT.
Q: How can I see contacts who have unsubscribed from a particular campaign/with a certain status/...?
A: To do so, go to Prospects and select the appropriate filter ( Status, In Campaign, Contacted, Imported) and #UNSUBSCRIBED tag from the ‘Tags’ filter.
Q: Is this tag going to be applied to the prospects who have had already unsubscribed?
A: No, only to your contacts who opted out from 20 August 2018 onwards.
