Every contact in your audience has a profile where you can view all available data about that person. You can also edit their information, add notes, or apply certain actions, such as unsubscribe, export, archive, or permanently delete.
In this article, you'll learn about contact profiles and how to view them.
View a contact profile
Contact profiles can be accessed from the contact table for an audience. You can also locate a specific contact profile with the search tool.
To view a contact profile, follow these steps.
- Click the Audience icon.
- Click All contacts.
- If you have more than one audience, click the Current audience drop-down and choose the one you want to work with.
- Click a contact's email address to open their contact profile.
From their profile, you can view or edit their contact information.
The top of a contact profile displays general information about your contact.
- Profile picture
If your contact uses Gravatar, we'll display their profile picture.
- Email Marketing Engagement
If the contact is subscribed to your email marketing, we'll display their email marketing engagement level. This is a measure of how a contact interacts with your emails over time. To learn more, check out About Email Marketing Engagement.
- Contact origin
This tells you how the contact was added to your audience. For example, whether someone subscribed to your email marketing or was added through a purchase.
- Marketing status
We'll display a label so you know if your contact is subscribed, non-subscribed, unsubscribed, pending confirmation, or cleaned.
- Predicted Demographics
If you have an eligible paid account, we'll display your contact's predicted gender and age range.
- Contact rating
We'll display a number of stars between 0 and 5 that represent a contact's engagement level. Contact ratings take into account open and click activity, past bounces or unsubscribes, and a few additional factors.
- Other email preferences
We’ll display a label if your contact has opted out of 1:1 messaging via your Mailchimp Inbox. If the contact is only eligible to receive transactional emails, that will also be displayed in the profile.
In this section, use the Actions drop-down menu to unsubscribe a contact from your email marketing, export their data, remove a contact from your audience, or tag them as a VIP. When you choose to remove a contact, you'll then decide whether to archive or permanently delete. To learn more about updating contact information, check out Update a Contact Profile.
Following the general contact information, you'll see a text box where you can add specific details about your contact as notes in their profile. For example, if you had an important conversation with a contact at an event, you can make a note of that in their profile to help inform your future interactions with them. These notes will live in an activity feed in their profile, but are only visible to you.
The activity feed displays a visual timeline of your contact's engagement.
Click the All Activity drop-down menu to view specific information, like e-commerce data or Inbox messages.
Here's the information you can find in the activity feed.

In this section, you'll see some overall stats that give you a snapshot of the contact’s engagement. You’ll see their email open and click rate, and total and average order revenue.
Audience field data and additional contact information is split into sections. The data you find here may vary, depending on the audience fields you have set up and add-ons you’ve enabled.
- Profile Info
This is where you’ll view basic audience field data, including email address, name, and address and phone number. Any custom fields you set up will also appear here.
If you have groups created for your audience, they’ll appear here.
Additional contact details, including browser language, favorite email client, and preferred email format will appear here.
If your audience is GDPR-enabled, the contact’s opt-in preferences will appear in this section. If they subscribed using a GDPR-friendly form, you’ll also see the date and time of form submission. Click the timestamp link to view a text-based version of the form they used to subscribe.
If your audience is GDPR-enabled, contacts added via the Mailchimp API are opted out of email by default.
