Adding a test list allows you to quickly send test emails to a specified group of contacts for review & approval. It also makes sending to larger test lists more efficient by eliminating the need to manually enter the emails one by one.
Add a Test 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 Test List section.
Name your Test 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.
After saving the email, you will see the email added to the test list and the Active Status = True.
Repeat this process to add any additional contacts to the test 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.
