Bulk Custom Fields

Is there a way to add/edit custom fields for multiple subscribers all at once (manually)? (i.e. I've got 100 people now that I want to label as "USA" for example and I don't want to go in one-by-one to do it)

Hi,

Your best bet would be to export your active subscribers, edit them in the .csv and then import them again to update all of the records.

Our list doesn't meet the "rules" CM has for importation, even though it's a good list that we procured organically. Shall I ignore those rules and import anyway?

eatricious,

If your list doesn't meet our rules then you wouldn't be able to send to it using our service. What about it doesn't meet the permissions rules? Do you not have explicit permission from everyone on the list to contact them about that topic?

We are, in fact, able to contact them.  Many thanks.  I see you cannot do bulk custom fields directly in CM, which was my issue. Cheers!

(I see you cannot do bulk custom fields directly in CM) - what exactly are you trying to do with your custom fields?

I would like to adjust one option for about 300 subscribers, but you say to do a bulk operation, the best is export a csv and re-import after having made the necessary changes? If thats the case thats what I'll do.
