Thanks for the reply William. First part: I've seen you can create a list as you describe. I understand that when importing contacts I can chose a list to add them to. However, this does not work when I import a list of contacts, each of whom may belong to a variety of lists: When I create a list to import, I tag each contact with appropriate tags. I have created Segments based on each tag, and once imported, each contact is automatically included in their relevant Segments -- contacts may belong to one or more of 12 segments. In the scenario where I have a List created from each Segment, I can add all contacts to my main List (all my contacts), but since the contacts I’m importing may belong to different "segment" lists, I cannot select any of the “segment” lists as that would add all contacts to the “segment” list. I’d have to manually edit each contact to add them to their appropriate "segment" list. That's an extra step and kind of defeats the purpose of having segments as far as I can tell. And when exporting from a List, I can choose to export any or all of my fields, but when exporting a Segment, the only fields I can export are email, name, and date added. Hard to understand why I can choose any field when exporting a List, but have very limited fields to chose from when exporting a Segment. Am I missing something? Second part: Modify Columns lets you choose from a limited number of fields. I have other fields in my database, notably phone number, that are not available to include in the column view. Again, am I missing something? It seems like it would be fairly easy, when either viewing or exporting a Segment, to provide the ability to select any of the available fields, as you can when you are exporting a List. Hope this makes sense. Thanks for your help.

I want to be able to export segments with additional fields, such as phone number, address, etc. I cannot find any way to do this! When exporting a segment, fields seem to be limited to name, email, date added. I can export my entire list with all fields, is there any way to export my segment with all, or a selection of, fields?
I would also like to be able to select any of my fields in "Modify Columns" to display in the main Contact view.

Is there any way to refresh all my segments at once? Right now it seems I have to refresh them one at a time.
I just imported 400+ contacts, each contact has up to 10 tags. I had built segments for each of my tags, but the newly imported contacts did not show up in the segments until I refreshed each individual segment. Hoping there is any easier way to do this.
A related question: each time I import a contact with tags, I have to refresh the segments? Shouldn't it do this automatically?
