Mass Contact Deletion from Existing List

0 Votes



my company is wondering if it is possible to mass delete a select group from a preexisting list? For example, we have a spreadsheet of around 700 names that need to be taken off a list they are on. is there a way we can remove these 700 contacts in mass from that list and leave the others alone?


Thank you.

Hello @JulieN95 ,


If you have a list of 700 contacts that needs to be removed, I'd recommend the following steps:

  1. Upload the 700 you want removed, and make a new list as part of the upload process. Call it something obvious like "700 for Removal."
  2. Once uploaded, go to that list and select-all the 700 or so contacts in it.
  3. With all the contacts in the Removal list selected, click Actions > Remove from List > select the list you want them removed from.

If you're also wanting these contacts completely deleted from your account, you can then select-all the contacts in your Removal list again, and this time click Actions > Delete.
