Removing a large number of contacts from a group

Is there any way to select a large number of contacts and remove them from a Group all at once? I see the option to add a bulk number of contacts to a group but not the option to remove.

Hi Rachel

You don't mention if the contacts have been added via dynamic criteria or if you are manually adding them to the group.

Dynamic group you would need to replace the criteria on the contact so that it doesn't match the criteria. You could use the Edit -> Replace Field .. option for this.

To manually remove them go to the group click the add/remove contacts button, click the contacts button. Once in the select criteria you and either remove all by clicking the << button or select the ones you want removed and then click on the < button

For static group members there isn't any direct method for removing a large number of members. The only method to remove a large number of members is to create a lookup of group members and edit the listy in the contact vies to eliminate the undesired group members and then create a new group of only those members. On of the reasons that dynamic group membership was designed
