How to delete contacts mistakenly added to a list via file upload ?

0 Votes

By mistake, about 1K contacts were added to a list via a file upload. How can they be deleted ? (I thought about uploading the contacts again to a new list, then deleting the new list/contacts; However contacts which ore on other lists aren't deleted). (I would have thought there would be a simple solution, but some searching hasn't found an answer). Thanks Bill Meier

Hello @HRKeeper. You can contact our Support team who can review what options there are to remove the incorrectly uploaded contacts. In the meantime, do not take any action within the Contacts area, including uploading or removing a list. Due to the weekend/holiday, they will not be available until Tuesday, June 20th.

There needs to be an easy "undo import" option beside each import listed so that users are not dependent on tech support to address this. This feature is available in MailChimp and is one of many examples where Constant Contact is not keeping up with basic features.
