To add a contact to a list:

  1. Open a list and in the Contacts section, click the drop-down arrow 9FD11352A3F94176BF30C47BFAD620C2.png, and then click Create and add new contact.

    The action menu in a contact list.
  2. In the Create and add new contact dialog box, enter the relevant contact information for the new contact. To add an existing contact to the list, enter the contact identifier and, if relevant, the identifier source of the existing contact.

    • If you do not want to use the email address as the contact identifier, select the Manually map contact identifiers check box and for the Identifier that appears, select the field in the import file that you want to use as the unique identifier for the contacts.

    • If you do not want to use List Manager as the identifier source for the contacts, select the Manually map contact identifier sources check box and for the Identifier source that appears, select the field in the import file that you want to use as the identifier source for the contacts.

    Note

    The information that you enter in the dialog box about an existing contact overwrites the contact details that already exist. This also applies if you leave a field empty.

    The Create and add new contact dialog box.
  3. Click Save. Until the list has been re-indexed, the list is locked.
