Contact List Keeps Changing By Itself

I take care of the constant contact emails for 3 churches in my area. Twice in the last year, my contact lists have some how been altered and as a result, some people didn't get the last email. What i going on?

Re: Contact List Keeps Changing By Itself

Hello @ChristopherC81128,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! It sounds like these contacts may be unsubscribing or bouncing, and that could be why they are not receiving your emails. Your contact lists will only change if someone who has access to the account edits them, if a contact asks to leave the list by selecting unsubscribe, or if the email address is not active anymore and bounces.

Re: Contact List Keeps Changing By Itself

Thanks for the reply, however, it's not an issue of bounces or people unsubscribing. The 3 contact lists have been altered somehow. This is not the first time this has happened. I'm getting really tired of all the excuses I've gotten from Constant Contact over the years. Glitch after glitch, problem after problem, and I keep getting blamed by my boss. If I don't get a REAL answer, I doubt we will continue with our account. This is getting ridiculous. 

 

I now have to redo all three contact lists. Thanks a lot.

Re: Contact List Keeps Changing By Itself

Hi @ChristopherC81128. I'm sorry to hear this has been happening. We can look into this further for but we will need some additional information about what exactly you're experiencing. Please email us at communitysupport(at)constantcontact(dot)com with the following:

 

  • What do you mean by "glitching"? Are contacts being removed?
  • Did you make any updates to your lists before noticing these changes, such as file uploads or deleting contacts?
  • Do you have examples of contacts that were removed from lists that should have been there?
