It was so easy to export your lists into excel. Now i cannot figure it out and need to call support every time. Please make this easy again!

Hi there. I'm sorry that you're finding the new system difficult. Exporting contacts in the new Contacts system is a quick process:

 

  1. Go to the Contacts tab
  2. Click on the list you want to export
  3. Check the Select All check box at the top of the list
  4. Click the Export button and confirm you want to export the list
  5. Go to the Activity page to download your file.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Does anyone know how to export my constant contact mail list?

Hi there Susan,

 

We sure do! Please follow these instructions for exporting a list of contacts

 

Put another way:

 

1.) Select the list you'd like to export,

2.) Select the box to the left of Name at the top of the list of contacts appearing in the middle of your screen,

3.) Select Export.

4.) You will then check the Activity Page and once your file has finished Exporting,

5.) You will click Download Export File and save it to your computer. 

 

Hope that answers your question!

Hello @ergine 

 

In order to export your contacts, you will need to:

  3. Select all of the email addresses that displayed by clicking the check box in the upper-left corner of your results.
    Checkbox
  4. Click "Export" in the menu.
  5. Choose the fields you want to include in your export.
  6. Click Export Contacts.
  7. Click "Activity" in the yellow sub-menu at the top of your screen.
  8. Click "Download CSV" or "Download Excel" for the export you just did.
    Note: It may take a few moments for that link to be available. Click the refresh icon in the gray bar for the most updated  information.

How do I export my contacts? The export button seems to be muted.

Hello @jackp44

 

In order to export your contacts you will need to select at least 1 contact for the Export button to become active.  Once you select contacts the buttons in the dark gray bar are clickable.  You can select the check box to the left of the Name header to select all contacts within the list that you are viewing.

Once you click Export you will then choose the data to export, and you can get your exported file off of the Activity page.
