We get requests sometimes from users of older integrations, asking for their list ID’s. It varies by account, but about a year ago, our accounts stopped showing list ID’s in the URL of some pages. Now, the only way to get list ID’s is through the API.
Some 3rd party integrations with Constant Contact are requiring users to know the listId instead of the list name for some actions. This post explains how you can obtain the listIds for all of your contact lists.
