Get Contacts Collection, does it retrieve new contacts?

Hi All, 

 

The documentation says that if I use modified_since parameter in the API Call, this method will just return the contacts that have been changed from the provided date, so I'm wondering if that collection includes new contacts too, or just the existing ones that have been changed?

https://developer.constantcontact.com/docs/contacts-api/contacts-collection.html?method=GET

 

Regards,

Re: Get Contacts Collection, does it retrieve new contacts?

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to the API Support team here at Constant Contact.

When you GET contacts and use the modified_since parameter, the result will be all contacts that have a last modified date after that date and time. This can include new contacts as their last modified date will initially be the same as their created date.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Sincerely,
David B.
