Remove all subscribers from a subscriber list

Hi, sorry for the noob question but I was wondering if there is a quick way of removing all subscribers from a subscriber list?

I have a client who wants to import a .csv of subscribers each month but the subscriber list has a bunch of custom fields so it would be a pain to start a new list each time.

Thanks,
Simon

Hi simonpaul, welcome to the forums! At present, it's only possible to move 100 subscribers at a time to 'Deleted'. Depending on how large your list is, this may take one, or many page loads to empty your entire list. Sorry about this - I'll most certainly add your vote internally to make it easier to bulk delete subscribers and keep you posted if it's something we change.

Thanks for the reply, that function would be useful but I've worked out a hacky way for now. I'll describe it here, someone may find it useful.

If I go into my subscriber list and select to view 100 per page the url changes to:

https://xxxxxxxx.createsend.com/subscribers/listDetail.aspx?listID=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx&page=1&order=date&dir=DESC&search=&state=Active&pageSize=100

I can change the number 100 at the end to 1000 or however many needed to show all subscribers. I can then check the box to select all users and delete them that way.

Hacky, but it works!
