You can add a new email address to an existing contact list by either adding the address manually or importing addresses from a CSV file.
Importing contacts is a good option when you have several email addresses to add. For further information about adding contacts read our article here.
Add a new contact or contacts manually
There are two ways to manually add email address or addresses to an existing contact list.
1. Go to Contacts -> Contact Lists and hover over the list. You will see a ‘+’ sign. Just click on it and it will open the ‘Copy & Paste’ page.
Once there you can give a title to the import – ex. Manual Import – and then enter, manually, the email address or addresses.
Note: Enter the first line as a header with the fields separated by a comma (Email, FirstName, LastName, Company etc.) Add each email address on a new line beneath the last with any additional data fields (firstname.lastname@example.org, John, Doe, NewCo Ltd etc.) as required.
After you’ve added the email address or address simply click Continue. You will be redirected to the Import page where you can see the import progress and, if you wish, download the import report.
2. Go to Contacts -> Contact Lists and open the list you want to add an email address or addresses to. Then, simply click on Add Contacts. After that, the process is the same as described above.
Add contacts by importing a file
There are two ways of adding an email address or addresses by importing a file which follows the exact same process described above but once at the ‘Add contact’ page, or after clicking the + sign, switch to From File tab.
