When looking at the List Detail view (click into the name of the list from Contacts > Lists), you can select all, some, or individual contacts in your list in order to perform the following bulk list actions:

  • Add to lists: you can only use this option to bulk-add contacts to a static list.
  • Enroll in workflow: use this option to enroll selected contacts into any active workflow.
  • Delete: use this option to permanently delete selected contacts from your HubSpot database. Permanently deleting contacts is an irreversible action.
  • Remove from list: this option is only available in static lists.

The bulk list options options are only available when you select contacts in your list. You can choose to select:

    Add 1 contact
    Add 1 contact
  • All contacts by checking the box at the top left of the list view table:
    3 contacts selected
    3 contacts selected
  • Or just some contacts based on the filtering you can do in the list search function.
