Add a contact to the Test address book

Learn to add contacts to the Test address book while creating a campaign.

Overview

The Test address book is a great place to store the contacts you use for your campaign test sends. You can add a new contact to your Test address book by either: 

  • Going to Contacts, selecting your Test address book and adding them.
  • Adding them during the campaign test send process.

Before you start

Things you need to know:

  • You can't upload a list of contacts to the Test address book; they can only be added individually.
  • You can have a maximum of 200 email addresses in your Test address book, and you can send a maximum of 200 test sends in an hourly period.
