Copy a segment to an address book

Learn how to copy the contacts from a segment or segments into an address book.


Segments are a list or group of contacts who fit a set of criteria that you have defined. As a contact's data changes, they may therefore move in or out of a segment based on whether they currently fit those criteria.

For this reason, you might create a segment and want to preserve the set of contacts it generates, so that you can refresh and reuse the segment in future without losing this contact set. To do this, you can copy a segment to an address book.
