Hello, I would like to remove a segment of contacts from a group due to inactivity. There are about 200 people in a weekly news list of 1000 that are not active. I have created a segment of them, and now I want to remove them from the weekly group. Your online instructions have instructions to do this 1 by 1 but that would take forever. These people are members of other groups and I don't want to touch that status. How do I remove them as a segment from the group all at once? Thanks

Hi Amy!

Greg with Emma Support here!

There is not a direct option to remove contacts in a segment from a particular group.

As you mentioned, one option would be to update the contacts one by one.

Another option is as follows:

Copy your segment of inactive contacts into a new group.
Create a new segment of contacts in your weekly news list and not in your new group of inactives.
Copy this segment into a new group, this will be your updated weekly news list.
Finally, delete your old weekly news list group.

Let me know if you have any questions.
