Add contact manually

In this article, you will learn how to create or update the contact by manual data entry.

Things to know before you start:

  • If the userId| email | phoneNumber, which you provide in this form matches someone that already exists in your Contact List, his/her attributes will be updated to reflect those provided in this form.
  • In case there is no user with those attributes, a new contact will be created.
  • If you want to use Retention Report based on customer acquisition sources, you should add the contact with its source.

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Select the Contact List domain from the drop-down menu (in the lower-left corner) if there are several domains in the account.

  • Navigate to the Contact List Management page (Menu -> Audience -> Lists).

  • Select a Contact List.

  • Click on the “Add Contacts” icon.

  • Select the “Add contact manually” section.

  • Fill in all input fields with valid contact’s data.

  • Mark a checkbox opposite “I have permission to add these persons to my list”. That means you have the contact’s permission to use their personal data.

  • Click the “Add contact” button.
