I have been using Constant Contact regularly since 2009 -- the new UI for managing email lists is a step backward when it comes to functionality.
The new design in Contacts emphasizes the e-mail addresses rather than the E-mail Lists they are organized into. That's backwards. The previous format, which was superior, showed the lists on a "scrolling" page, only showing email addresses when one clicked through. That was far easier and faster to use.
Now you have made finding the right list harder on that page with the tiny box on the left and the way you force people to "drag" down that narrow bar along the side. Did you consider "down" and "up" arrows for people to navigate more quickly? I can't use my roller to go through that list unless I click on one of the lists. And then when I use the roller, it "skips" over lists, making you wonder "did I miss something?" I can't even sort them from large to small lists.
Adding to a list has gotten less efficient as well. There used to be a web form that allowed me to add email/name/job/company for multiple people at once. Now that has gone away, I have to do that one at a time. How is that more efficient?
You would be better off returning to the old format. If not, I will consider switching my organization's e-mail hosting elsewhere.
