Can't import sample email addresses into separate groups

I have 3 email groups. 2 of them have separate email addresses in them. The 3rd is for people that have registered for an event so this group requires adding email addresses that are in the first 2 groups. When trying to import the 3rd list, the system doesn’t import email addresses into that group that are already in the other 2 lists. I understand that you can assign email addresses to different groups manually, but that would be extremely time consuming in this case. I would like to be able to import the 3rd list and have the system up the database to include that group for an existing email record. Please let me know how this might be possible. Thanks.

    that’s an interesting question.

    i thought i could add members to groups, then export. but it doesn’t seem to add the groups to the export csv at all (think that may be a bug) so i could see the format of the csv.

    let me just ask the developer for some feedback on this for you.

    thanks

    Sounds good. I know I definitely checked the group that I want the emails to be imported to, but it seems to only import emails that aren’t already in another group. It’s definitely a deal breaker when it comes to importing same email addresses into different groups. Ultimately it would be great if the system could recognized the email being imported and assigning a new group to it, assuming that is the action that is taken.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
