A role-based list is the most commonly created list in Knowlegis. With this type of list, as staffers change, the lists will dynamically update to reflect those changes based on their new, updated position. As covered in Creating Lists, to create a role-based list, hover over Create in the top left corner and click List. When the pop-up window appears, click on Person-based list, then Choose.
From the left-hand pane, start to build your list with the following filters: Staff Role, Issue Area, Party, Chamber, Legislator Staff, Committee Staff, Committee Member Staff, Delegation, Voting Record and/or any Custom Tags that you have set up. Based on the filters used, the staff members that fit the criteria will show in your list. Should you choose to exclude a staff member(s) from the list, click the button.
If there are staff members who do not fit the criteria, but should be added to this list, you can search for them in the search bar above the results list. Add these staff members by clicking the button.
Once you are done creating your list, click the button in the top right corner to save the list. When the pop up appears, enter a name for the list and click Save.
