Hi everyone,

If a have a targeted location within a radius but some part of it overlaps with my excluded location, what will happen?
Will the system favor my excluded location?

Thanks,
Richard

You can exclude a location within your targeted area.  If so, the excluded portion of the targeted area won't show.

 

For example, you might want to target the whole state of Texas - but not Houston.  You can then exclude Houston.

@richard

First, why would you have that?..... You can set the radii  not to overlap, or use a different targeting method.

On the list of locations you can see if the location was added as excluded or as a targeted.  (To my recollection the last change wins.)

Sometimes you need to target a big area but you want to exclude a small part in the area. Just like Shanee_Kirk's example below.
