Make contacts Inactive Temporarily


Make contacts Inactive Temporarily

I have 19000 subscribers. I need to add only 8000, in the beginning, to warm up the Constant Contact panel. I have a Shopify store so the contacts would be synced to it. I want to add 11000 contacts later and prevent them to get synced at the same time (until I add them later). If I unsubscribe them, I won't be able to add them later and I don't want to use sign-up form since the contacts are genuine subscribers. 


I have used Omnisend and it had the feature to add "Non subscribed" contacts which could later be made "Active".


Kindly provide me help in this regard.


Hi @user876814 


Thank you for reaching out to the Community about your contacts! At this time we do offer the ability to manually set a temporary hold through your contact's details.




With that said, I apologize at the time we do not offer the ability to make this change to contacts in bulk amounts like you have described. Have you tried creating separate lists? As a workaround you can always create separate lists in your Constant Contact account and delete the unwanted address. We even have the option to create custom segments to target specific contacts.
