Moving contacts out of a group

We have a group that captures new sign ups and triggers an automated series. We want to clean these Contacts out after the series is over each week and move them to a larger group.  The initial group must remain, as it is hard-coded to our website. Is there a way to move a batch of contacts, not copy, from one group to another? From what I've read here, it's a challenge.

One thing that occurs to me it to create a segment of the first group, export to csv, delete them and then upload to the second group using the spreadsheet. This seems like a lot of work, but it's better than moving them by hand one at a time.


Thanks,

Mary

I have already called in for support. The recommendation was to make the automation trigger on a segment with a "contact since" filter. Then when the Contacts move out of the segment, they are still in the group. I'm going to try this, but it sounds like a good solution.
