Join Virginia O'Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing and exporting your subscriber list, part of Learning MailChimp.
- Now that you have a list, or a bunch of lists,…you may find instances where you want…to import or export your lists.…If, for example, you used a paper system…to gather emails at an event or conference,…you'll want to import those names.…You can put them into a spreadsheet…or a comma-separated text file and import them.…We showed you how to import in another video,…so we're going to focus on exporting in this video.…Now, why would you want to export your lists?…You might want a backup of your list for some reason.…
MailChimp has never lost a list in all the years…I've used them, so I don't mean this to say that your list…isn't safe in MailChimp, but you might have…some other reasons for wanting a backup,…and I'm sure you'll know those when you encounter them.…You may want to export the list and use that to update…your contact information in your office system, for example.…You might want to export the list in order to do some form…of data transformation, or make some change…to the data, and then re-import it.…
