See 'Lists' As A Column Option When Viewing Contacts

0 Votes

It would be great to have another choice for the columns on the Contacts page: a column that tells me which lists each contact is on. As it stands, I have to open up each contact to see that information. That could take a long time, as our lists grow...Thanks for reading!

I want to be able to better organize my 9,000 plus contacts more efficiently but it takes forever to have to click each one and switch what group they are in. There needs to be a way to show all my contacts and the groups they're in on one page and on that same page, allow me easily select multiple contacts and switch the email categories they are in.


I found it helpful to have the full listing of contact lists along the left side of the screen... that option is now gone... Could we bring it back? It helped me switch more readily back and forth between different lists.

Hi @Ecoscape thanks for sharing this feedback! How does our list tab in the Contacts section not fir your needs so see the full listing of your contact lists?




Hi! Previously I could see the lists on the left side of the screen and the contacts contained in the selected list on the right side of the screen.  It was easy to switch back and forth between lists to look for a specific client.  For example:  is Bobby Sue on the Plow list and the Irrigation list?  I could switch back and forth between the lists quickly to scan for her name.  The current set up is OK, it just requires far more clicks to get to the info.  Efficiency is everything at my desk... so much to do :smileyface:

Hi @Ecoscape thanks for sharing this example! We have opened up your idea so other users can weigh in on this as well. In the meantime, searching for a specific client on multiple lists, does the list section of your specific contact details not fit your needs of seeing all the lists they're apart of at once?

Hi @ILSAB. Thank you for the idea! I'll open this up for voting. 

I have two subscriber lists, but when I look at the web site under "New Subscribers" it doesn't tell me to which list they subscribed.

I have broached this subject before, but have a suggestion:


For some erroneous reason, contacts end up on multiple lists for which I do not intend.

I would like to see, when viewing a given contact list, columns to the right listing all lists for which the contact may belong.

Under each column, I'd like to see simple check marks that can be unchecked (or checked) to remove (or add) the contact from a particular list.

Then, the ability to "save" the changes.


This can't be so difficult to do, and it would save me vast amounts of time not having to go into each individual contact to correct this information.

We're updating the status of this idea to more accurately reflect its current status with our engineering team and also made slight changes to the subject line in order for it to be more easily found. We can't guarantee a commitment to deliver on this feature request within the Contacts tab but it should indicate some awareness that we have heard your feedback and could be taken under consideration for a future release.
