removing multiple contacts from a list


removing multiple contacts from a list

Is there a way to move multiple contacts from one list to another all at one time? 


Hello @JenylleR ,


Thank you for reaching out to us today. It looks like this has been a recurring issue for you, so I'd like to provide several options. There are several ways to move specific contacts from one list to another, but there may be different criteria for each method.


For example, if you're wanting to move people based on activity (e.g. opened a specific email or clicked a specific link in an email) you can export a report of these contacts. Then you can upload that report via Add Contacts in Contact Management, specifically selecting the list you want them added to.


Another possible methodology might be Segmentation. Are the people you're moving all fitting within very specific criteria? In that case you can use the Segmentation tool found at the top of Contact Management to Segment these people out and add them to a list.


If these are the same people you always move around, I might suggest adding them all to a list that you can easily go into, Select All everyone in, and then use the Manage Lists option to mass-add/remove them from other lists as needed.


Otherwise, if this is a group of specifically selected people that have no matching traits, not on an exportable list, nor the same exact selection of contacts each time, then the only other method is to go into the list you need to move/remove them from. Manually select them (you can go to the next page when selecting contacts in a list) and then Manage Lists to add/remove as needed.


I hope one of the easier first three methods works out for you to help save you time and expedite the process for you. If you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to reply to this thread and we'd be happy to help. Have a lovely day!
