Using filters within the mailing list

Filters are used to search contacts in your mailing lists. Filters can be applied to the whole database or to specific lists.

Go to Email tab in your SendPulse account

Open a mailing list and click Filter

Types of filters

This menu allows searching for leads by several criteria:

  • Date the subscriber was added (using "To-From" interval)
  • Search by subscriber's email address
  • Subscriber ID
  • Subscriber's status
  • *Here is how you can find subscriber ID: Open a mailing list with the subscriber and click on their email address. A page with contact's details will open and you will see the numeric subscriber ID in the URL:

Subscribers' Statuses

Subscribers can be filtered by such statuses:

Deleting subscribers from the mailing list

Tick contacts you would like to remove from the list and click Delete at the top of the list

You can also delete contacts in bulk.

Check the box located by the Email address to select all contacts on the page of the list. Then just click Delete.

How to copy selected contacts

Tick the contacts you need to copy and click Copy.

Then you will need to select a mailing list to copy the leads to.

Moving leads to a different mailing list

Select contacts you need to move, or select all contacts on the page (as explained above) and click Move

How to edit a variable
