Archive contacts using copy and paste

One of the archive options in Moosend lets you archive members or contacts from your email marketing lists by copying and pasting. You can quickly archive up to 500 members using this method. If your list exceeds the 500 members limit, you can use other available archive methods using CSV, TXT, Excel files or plugins.

To archive your contacts by copy and paste:

  1. In the top navigation bar, hover your mouse over the Audience tab, and then click Email lists.
  2. Click the name of the email list from which you want to archive members.
  3. In the menu, click Perform bulk actions.
  4. In the Choose Bulk Action page, navigate to Archive List members and click Select.
  5. On the pop-up window that appears, go to the Paste Text option and click Select.
  6. On the Data selection tab, paste your archive list and click Next. You can use one contact per row and commas ( , ) to separate each contact's fields.Snag_556294.png
    Note: You can always type the emails here and any other information you want to include, but it would be quicker to just copy and paste your list. As long as you separate information with a comma, you can add more than just the recipient's email address. We recommend that you use one line per subscriber.
  7. On the Data Mapping tab, click each drop-down list and select the default fields or any created custom field that fits best. If you want to map a specific column to a field, Click the Map to dropdown, select the field to use, and click Next.

    Note: If you have not mapped all the fields, a notification appears asking if you want to archive any columns that remain unmapped. Click Ignore and continue.

  8. On the Notification tab, select if and how you want to be notified once the archive process has been completed. Select Apply to all email lists if you want the archive process to be applied to all your email lists simultaneously.  Click Archive when you are ready to start the process.Snag_4db7ff.png
