How do I filter to exclude a label? (Trello)

I would like to filter my cards in a board to show everything that doesn't have a certain label. How do? I've tried -label:"red" and -label:"Urgent" and that syntax doesn't work.

It's not possible to add a negative operator to filters, but the search feature does support that:

Is this a possible feature for the future?

I would like this as well - search for all cards that do not include one label. Seems like it would be a big help to many.

I would like to see this working in the filter as well.

I'd like to do this so I can find all cards not done

Yes that would be exactly  how I would use it as well. Show any card is is not marked Done for example.

This feature would be very helpful

That would be quite useful indeed.

I also would need this!

100% need this feature. I'm kinda shocked it's not a thing yet.

Logged in for first time to upvote. 

I so would like to have this feature too. My most used board has 26 labels. Searching and filtering NEED exclusions.
