Create New List
For any new list you are creating, you must create the list name before being able to add or upload any contacts (lists) you may have to import. At this stage, you are only concerned about creating the list name and the list criteria, not adding or importing names.
The create window requires you to input relevant data such as General information, Defaults, Notification settings and Company information needed for any campaign.
General Data: Name of the list and your display name of the list if you want it different. A summary description of your list. Contact defaults would be those set in your Account Settings. If you wish to change these for a certain list, you would do so here. Opt In or Opt Out type, either single or double. For example, a double opt-in is when a subscriber signs up on your website (first opt-in) and then receives an email to confirm the registration. A single opt-in or opt-out is when someone clicks to register (or unregister) and is immediately opted in or out without receiving an email that must be confirmed.
Notifications: Whether you wish to receive email notifications of each opt-in or opt-out. Keep in mind that you can login to your Dashboard to see the opt-ins and opt-outs.
Company Details: Defaults would be those in your Account Settings. As in the Contact information in the General Data above, the Company Details default to your Company Account Settings. If you wish to change these for a certain list, you would do so here.
Once you have created your list, it will appear in the list window, with the name of the list, display name if you gave it one, Next to each list there’re four buttons, overview, copy, edit and delete. Copy and Delete are self explanatory for the list. The Update icon is to edit any criteria you originally inputted.

- Subscriber box: you can manage your existing subscribers (create/update/remove) and also you can adjust your list depending on your unsubscribe. For example you can add new custom fields or remove existing.
- Segmentation box: you can segment your list with various criteria based on your custom list fields and on a high number of operators. Segmentation will help you target a specific type of users when sending campaigns.
