How do you transfer contacts from one list to another

Hi all

 

I cannot see a way around this. All I want is to select contacts in one list and transfer them to another. Aside from export it on an Excel file and loading them in another list, I do not see a simpler way of doing it.

 

Once I have ticked all the contacts I need to move, all I m looking for is Move to - List X. Which of course I cannot find.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thank you

Laurie

Hey @LauriePr,

 

That is a great question! There sure is a simple way to move your contacts from one list to another. What you want to do is, check mark the contacts that you want to move. Then, scroll to the top of the screen and select "Manage Lists', then 'Add to list' and choose the list you would like.  manage lists.png

Re: How do you transfer contacts from one list to another

Adding to another list is not the same as moving contacts from one list to another.  Once they are added to another list - another manual step is needed to remove them from the existing list, and each contact that was duplicated in the new list must be found and deleted manually from the old list.

 

Certainly look forward to an added feature that moves contacts from one list to another.

 

On another subject - a means of selecting multiple contacts in a range using shift or some such means to mark a series of contacts would be extremely beneficial.

 

Thanks for your consideration.

Hello @DennisY661,

 

Thank you for addition to the discussion.  You're absolutely right, currently to move them the way you described does require some extra steps.  I'll gladly add that, as well as your suggestion for selecting a range of contacts, to our feature requests.  If you have any other ideas on how to improve the system to make it more usable, please let us know so we can pass those on as well.
