How Do I Move Subscribers to a New List?

This tutorial will teach you how to move subscribers from one list to another list using a Workflow. We will name the original list, list 1 and the list where the subscribers are being moved to list 2.

Please Note: This process will only work for moving new subscribers, and existing subscribers will not be moved by the workflow. If you would like to move existing subscribers they will need to be moved manually, using an export and import.

1. Start by creating both lists, you can learn how to create a list here.

2. Once both lists are created, create a workflow, using the “Automations” tab. Select “Add Automation” then select “Start From Scratch” then “Workflow.”
Make sure to set this workflow so that it triggers off of list 1. You can learn more about creating a workflow here.

3. Next, use the plus sign to add an action.

4. Add the “Subscribe” action to the workflow. Then select the list that you would like the subscribers to be moved to. In our case List 2.

5. The next step is optional. If you would like you can add another action that will unsubscribe users from the original list. You can do this by adding the “Unsubscribe” action, and selecting the original list, List 1 in our example. Make sure to select the Save button to save your selection.

Please Note: The unsubscribe action if it is unsubscribing the user from the trigger list (List 1) will end the workflow. Any action you place after the subscribe action will not happen since the user is unsubscribed from the trigger list.
