Lists are the most basic way to organize Contacts in Sendlane. Each List can be used to send Campaigns and Automation emails, allowing you to target specific groups of Contacts with your messages.

Before Getting Started
Prior to creating a List, you'll need to have at least one Sender Profile.
Creating a List
Click the Audience icon in the left-hand menu bar → Lists tab → +List button
Enter your List Name (this will be visible only to you) → Select a Sender Profile → Click the pink Create button
Editing a List
Click the gray arrow button in the View column of the List you want to edit
Editing a List’s Name
Click the gray Edit icon button next to the List’s name → Edit the List’s name → Click the green check button to save your changes
Changing a List’s Sender Profile
Click the black Edit button in the Sender Profile box → Select a new Sender Profile from the Select Sender Profile dropdown → Click the pink Save button to save your changes
Merging a List
Merging two or more Lists combines all Contacts on each List into a new List.
Select each List you want to merge → click the black Merge button
The Merge Lists pop-up window allows you to merge to an existing List or create a new List:
- Merge to an existing List - Select the List to merge your selected List to from the dropdown
- Merge to a new List - Enter a name for your new List and select a Sender Profile
After the merge is complete, you can keep the original Lists in your account or delete them. Select the radio button for the option you prefer, then click the pink Merge button to complete the merge.
Deleting a List
Click the gray arrow button in the View column of the List you want to delete → Click the black Delete List button → Click the red Delete List button to confirm
If a Contact is only on a single List and that List is deleted, that Contact will be removed from your entire Sendlane account. Contacts cannot remain in your audience without being on at least one List.
