Looking for help with your list?
Mailchimp lists are now called audiences. They include the same data and functionality as before, along with valuable new insights about your contacts. As we introduce this change over time, you’ll notice fewer places where we still say list. Learn more about this change.
If you need to remove contacts who were imported together, you can undo the import on the audience’s Import History page.
In this article, you’ll learn how to undo a contact import.
Before You Start
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
- To import or export contacts, you need an audience in Mailchimp. To learn more, check out Getting Started With Audiences.
- After you import contacts to an audience, we’ll tell you if there were any errors, and which addresses were affected. Then, you can undo the import, remove the affected addresses, and redo the import. To learn more about how to resolve issues with your import, read Troubleshooting Contact Imports.
Undo a Contact Import
You can undo a contact import at any time, for any reason. When you undo an import, you’ll only remove contacts who were added by that import. You won’t remove contacts who were in your audience before the import, and you won’t revert any field data that was updated for existing contacts as a result of the import.
To undo your contact import, follow these steps.
- Navigate to the Audience tab.
- If you have more than one audience, click the Current audience drop-down and choose the one you want to work with.
- Click the Manage Audience drop-down and choose Import contacts.
- Click Import History.
- Find the import you want to remove, and click Undo.
- In the Undo Import pop-up modal, type UNDO and click Undo.
After you confirm the action, the import will display an Undone timestamp on the Import History page.
