SurveyMethods provides two types of mailing lists – basic email lists and advanced email lists. Basic email lists are simple lists of emails, with no other identifying information.
To create a new basic email list, first go to the mailing list menu by clicking the “Mailing Lists” link on the main navigation bar.
Then click the Create New List button on the top right.
Choose “Create a basic email list with email addresses only” and click Create.
Enter a name for your email list and then either enter your email addresses in the box below (one email per line), or to import from Excel click the Import from Excel button.
For more information on importing email addresses from Excel, visit our Import Email Lists from Excel help article.
When you’re happy with your list, click Create. You will be returned to the Mailing List menu and your new list will now be shown along with the type, number of emails included and icons to manage your list.
You can use the icons on the right to view the list, import additional emails from Excel, edit the list, delete the list, or create a copy of the list.
Your new mailing list will now be available when you launch your survey by email or send out a newsletter.
