Re: need help

Hello @EdwinaP,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community. That's a great question!

 

Are you trying to add existing contacts who are on another list to your original list or are you adding new contacts by typing them in or from a spreadsheet? This video will walk you through the different ways you can add contacts to your account.

 

If you are adding existing contacts to the original list you can follow these steps:

 

1. Go to the list where the contacts you want to move are located (it could be right on the Active list or maybe in one of your Email Lists).

 

2. Either Select All or check off the individual contacts.

 

3. Choose Manage Lists --> Add to Lists.

4. Check off the list you want to add them to and hit "Add."

This will move the contacts to the original list. 

 

If you're just looking to merge all your contacts into one list you can actually click on "View All Lists" and then select the lists you want to merge and it will create a new, merged list with all the contacts in it.

I hope this information helps!

Re: need help

Thank you!  As I read through your response, I realized that my problem came from one tiny word.  I was doing everything your suggested, but when I went to put them into our exsisting list, I was using the term 'original.' Constant Contact was looking for the word, "Main."  The minute I changed words, it worked.  Thank you so much!
