I was playing around with segments to learn how they work, but now I have several I don't need anymore. When I go to delete a segment, though, it asks me if I'm sure I want to delete those contacts and no, I definitely don't! What to do?
Hey Laurie -- Great question! If you're deleting the segment itself from the audience page, you're only deleting that segment, not the contacts in it. Essentially, you're removing that basket and the criteria that were pulling those contacts into that basket.
If you open the segment and select contacts to delete, you'll be asked if you want to delete the contacts from all groups and your audience. This will indeed move those selected contacts to your deleted items.
This comes in handy if you want to use segments to isolate and delete your unengaged readers! Let me know if that doesn't clear things up.
Emily, if you're still monitoring this? I have a segment of "non-responders and sent them emails in preparation to delete them. But many want to stay on. How do I remove them from that segment before I delete all the others? There's no option to just delete them from the segment and not from all groups in general.
