Why are my criteria for my blog subscription lists reverting to the old criterion?

When navigating to your Lists tool (Contacts > Lists) you will see four lists already present, which are tied to the subscription options available within the HubSpot Blog tool:

  • Instant Subscribers - [Name of blog] Blog
  • Daily Subscribers - [Name of blog] Blog
  • Weekly Subscribers - [Name of blog] Blog
  • Monthly Subscribers - [Name of blog] Blog

As with any other list, you may find yourself wanting to edit the lists' criteria in order to change the segment of blog subcribers the lists are already looking for. However, please be aware that when it comes to your blog's subscription lists, the specific criterion already present in the list must not be deleted. In other words, the blog subscription contact property needs to always be present in the list. If you wish to edit the list, you can add new additional criteria, but you cannot remove the criterion that is already present by default. If you do, the list will revert back to the criterion it originally had.
