Community Coach Insights: Using Video in Marketing Emails

Remove contacts from List A when added to List B

You took a big step backwards in my book when you got rid of the ability to move contacts from one list to another just by checking and unchecking the boxes next to the email addresses. It has been a few years, and I cannot believe you have not found it to be an important enough feature to add back.. It is absolutely ridiculous that in order to move contacts from one list and remove them from the old list, I must check them off and add them to a list, and then go back in and find the ones I just moved (it does not keep them checked), and re-check them, and then remove them from the first list. Wow. I cannot tell you how this frustrates me. We move names from a central location to individual lists based on their email addresses. So for instance, if I have a list of 50 emails we have added or who have added themselves, we go in periodically and put them into lists based on their email address,, and then remove them from the central list so that we know we have processed them. Maybe we are the only ones who found the old way better. If only the boxes remained checked, I would not have to go back and re-check them all. What used to take me 3 minutes now takes 20. Oh well. This is not the first time I complained about this, and will not be the last.
