This might be a useful feature but it is impossible to add a tag to multiple contacts using the UI or API. This makes using tags a painful and frustrating process, and the only option is to export groups of contacts and reimport them in groups if that even works. The UI purports to offer the ability to apply tags or lists to a group of contacts but it does not work and is a complete failure. This has been an issue for months, if not years, and CC will not fix the issue. Managing lists and segments is a complete nightmare!!! I am beginning to question CC's ability to provide reliable services at any level and I don't trust any of the features to work. This is a bad joke to pay $100 a month for a service that has so many bugs.

This is critical functionality for various reasons including managing subscribed lists based on actions taken by a contact and to track affiliate/partner conversions via links. This severely limits transactional email options. The fact that this is not available currently and is apparently not a priority is baffling. It seems CC is focused on simple use cases that do not include API integrations and serious marketing. I'm frustrated that I have spent time developing to an API where maintenance and functionality is not a priority. Other developers beware! These are additional issues: Unable to GET a list of custom fields via the API Unable CRUD custom fields with names via the API Just recently the options to update custom fields via the API have stopped working Unable to manage tags via the API Unable to use dynamic links When editing lists or contacts, unable to see current tags or lists in UI Receiving this response intermittently when using the API: Service Unavailable: Back-end server is at capacity 503
