I've looked at multiple boards and tried the solution offered but they don't work. One of the solutions offered was exporting all the "no permissions set" list and then importing them. When importing you're supposed to change the email address type (e.g change work to home), but I don't have different email types to choose from. I also tried added the solution of adding a "test" column to the excel file before importing them, but that didn't work either. I don't want to go through each contact individually and change the permission. Please help me!
Thank you for reaching out to the Constant Contact Community. It's my pleasure to assist you today.
I'm sorry for the problem you are encountering when trying to update the Permission Status in bulk. I know it would be terribly inconvenient to have to do this manually. I also tried some of the workarounds we have for this particular problem and was unable to get the permissions to update either. I'm submitting this up to our advanced technical support team so they may take a look at getting this resolved for you without having to do the change manually. They will reach out to you when they get back into office Monday. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to us here should you need anything.
Thank you for choosing Constant Contact. Have a great weekend.
Has there been a fix for this that could be shared? I am having the same issue. Thanks!
It looks like the only option currently is to manually update those contacts, but the Advanced Support team may still be able to assist further. I would be happy to submit a ticket to the Advanced Support team on your behalf since you're having the same difficulties.
Any updates on this - changing a bulk of emails from "implied" to "express" is extremely important in not having those emails bounce! With implied, they bounce after just a couple of times not opening an email. If it's express permission, they don't automatically go to bounce. It's the most important aspect of using an email service. Doesn't help if we can't keep emails active!
Thank you for your response! I will be happy to submit this feedback to the appropriate teams for consideration. Fortunately, when sending emails to Implied or Express permission contacts the email communications are sent the exact same way. This will not have any impact on your bounces. Bounces are a signal sent from the receiving server telling us that an email could not be delivered. Here is an article that explains this in more detail.
I hope this helps. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
