[TO BE DEPRECATED] Create and manage daily exports

Daily exports will soon be deprecated. Until then, the feature is only available to users who created an account before December 16th, 2022, and who have already created at least one daily export before this date. Note that you can create a maximum of 30 daily exports on your account.

To automatically export your contacts every day:

  1. Go to Contacts.
  2. Choose the contacts you want to export:
    1. If you want to export All your contacts, go to step 3.
    2. If you want to export a list or a segment, click Load a list or segment and select the desired one.

      For daily exports, you cannot segment your contacts before exporting them. You have to select all the contacts in a specific list or segment or all the contacts in your database.
  3. Select the checkbox at the top left of the table and click Select all contacts.
