Data.com: Connect Suppress Contacts from Purchases and Exports
|Knowledge Article Number||000005845|
If you’ve purchased our Data.com Connect $1,500.00 member plan, you can filter contacts from your exports and shopping cart purchases to exclude contacts you don’t want to export. You might want to exclude contacts that you obtained from another source, for example. Or, if you’re exporting contacts to create a list for a marketing campaign, you can exclude contacts who have opted out of marketing emails.
Your uploaded suppression list applies automatically to every export and purchase you make, for as long as the list is active. Connect excludes contacts in the list when you export contacts or when you check contacts out of the shopping cart.
1. Open a spreadsheet and type email in the first cell.
2. Enter contact email addresses into the spreadsheet, following this example:
The first row in the file must say email, with one email address per row after that. Connect never charges for contacts you already own, so you don’t need to include them in your suppression list.
3. Use Save As to name your list and save the file as a .csv (comma-delimited) type. If your file isn’t in .csv format, Connect won't accept it.
4. Your suppression file is ready to upload into Connect.
Upload Your Suppression List
A single suppression list applies to your entire account. If you Upload a new file, the new list replaces the existing one.
If you remove the file, you can’t suppress contacts until you upload a new file.
