Adding a seed list allows you to keep key internal stakeholders informed of outgoing emails. If an email is configured to send to a seed list in addition to the required audience, individuals on the seed list will receive the email, even if they don't qualify for the audience you are sending to.
Add a Seed List
Navigate to Settings by hovering over the blue icon in the top right of the Portal.
Within Email Settings, select Add List in the Seed List section.
Name your Seed List and click Save.
After saving, you will see the name of your list in the drop-down as well as a new View option. Click View to add contacts to the list.
To load contacts in bulk, click choose file option and select the file. You can also click Add in the bottom right-hand corner to add contacts manually.
If you click Add to enter them in one by one, you will get another prompt to enter in the email address.
Hit the blue Save button to save the email into the test list.
After saving the email, you will see the email added to the seed list and the Active Status = True.
Repeat this process to add any additional contacts to the seed list.
To change the status of a contact from the seed list, click “Edit” and toggle the Active status from True to False. When false, the button is gray and to the left, when True, the button is blue and to the right.
Only contacts with their Active status equaling True will be seeded on the outgoing email.
