I was adding some contacts to our email lists. These were people already in my system. So I would do a search, check the box next to their name, and add them to the appropriate lists. Some people were being added to the lists and others weren't.
After doing some digging I found out that the people that weren't getting saved to the lists didn't have their email permissions set. (After a frustrating 15 minutes). It's easy enough to go into their record and check the permissions box, but there wasn't any notice that I needed to do so.
Ideally if you do need to set permissions you could do it from the list page so you don't have to go into the individual record and so it's readily apparent it needs to be done. If they keep it as is they need to at least make it so you either get an error message when you try to save someone to a list (with an easy way to set permissions so we don't have to click back and forth between a lot of screens) or not allow you to even get to the point of adding them to a list without first setting the permission.
