Delete all subscribers from a list


I have been asked to develop an import utility to update subscribers in a list.

I haven't been able to find a way to simply delete all current subscribers from a list.

Is this possible please?

(I am using the .net wrapper)

Many thanks

Hi trevorjdaniel, welcome to the forums!

I'm afraid that there is no way to completely remove subscribers from a list, either through the API or through the app. We do have a request for deleting a subscriber, which moves them to the 'Deleted' tab, which may still accomplish what you were wanting.

Too, there is a request for deleting a list and one for deleting a custom field, which completely removes the list/custom field data from the account.

I hope one of those is a real option for you!

thanks Carissa,

I am a CM newb and the more I look into it the more I think it's actually a bad idea to delete all subscribers.
