Merge subscribers from an existing list

When you add an existing list to another list in WordFly all subscribers who are currently in the existing list are merged into the list while the existing list stays the same. You’ll see the number of subscribers added in the List History as well as the number of duplicates. For example, you can combine (merge) your CRM imported list or CSV list with your WordFly Subscribe list. Learn more

WordFly will remove all subscribers with import issues before the list is combined. If you want to include any of these subscribers, you'll want to override them in the existing list before you merge the list.

If you’re looking to take two existing lists and combine them into a new third list without changing the two existing lists, you can do that, too. It requires a little trick: an empty list. We’ll review a few ways you can use this option.

 

 

Add an existing list to a list that you’ve already imported (Inside a Campaign)

 

1. Go to the Subscribers step of your In Progress campaign

You should already have a list assigned to your email campaign. If not, assign a list before proceeding to the next step.

 

2. In the More List Actions menu, select Add More Subscribers

 

3. Select the Add from Existing List option

 

4. Select the list you would like to add

 

5. Confirm you would like to merge subscribers by clicking 'yes'

We ask you to confirm because this step cannot be undone.

 

6. Your added list will be merged into the first list

 

 

Add an existing list to a list that you’ve already imported (Outside a Campaign)

 

1. Go to the Subscribers > Lists

 


2. Click on your list name and select Add Subscribers

 

3. Select the Add from Existing List option

 

4. Select the list you would like to add

 

5. Confirm you would like to merge subscribers by clicking 'yes'

We ask you to confirm because this step cannot be undone.

 

6. Your added list will be merged into the first list

 

 

Add two existing lists and combine them into a third list without changing the two existing lists

This can be done inside and outside a campaign. Inside a campaign, select the Subscriber step and then continue with these instructions. Outside of a campaign, select Create a new list and then continue with these instructions.

 

1. Select the Add Manually option

 

2. Click Start Importing without any addresses added in the open field

 

3. In the More List Actions menu, select Add More Subscribers

 

4. Select the Use an Existing List option

 

5. Select the first list you would like to add

 

6. Confirm you would like to merge subscribers by clicking 'yes'

We ask you to confirm because this step cannot be undone.

 

7. Your first list will be merged into the list you just created

 

8. Repeat steps 3-5 to add another list. Keep doing this to continue adding more lists

 

 

Did you merge subscribers by mistake?

Sometimes lists are merged into lists by mistake. You can remove any subscribers you added by using WordFly's remove subscribers option. Learn how to remove subscribers.
