I am working with our entire list of contacts. I found that there are a large group that we would like to delete. Is there an easy way to do that?

Hello @GlenMar ,

There's three ways you can go about doing this, depending on how you've setup the contacts you wish to delete:

  • If you have the contacts you wish to delete already on a contact file of their own, then you can upload them as a new list into your Contacts. Then you can select-all, top Actions button > Delete. This will remove them from your account across all lists.
  • If they're part of a drilldown, such as an email's bounces report, you can select-all, top Actions button > Delete
  • If they're not in one of these setups, the most straightforward method would be to simply go into your contacts / the specific list, and start manually clicking the contacts you want to get rid of, then Actions > Delete.
