Searching for contacts
To search for contacts, head to the Lists page and click the list you want to search in. Once you're viewing that list, click the magnifying glass:
You can use the Search to look up a user based on their email address, status, last updated date, added date and any custom field. By default, our search prioritises searches based on email address and will return both subscribed and unsubscribed contacts. To further narrow the search, use one of these Advanced search filters.
|email:||Searches for an email address.||email:firstname.lastname@example.org|
|firstname:||Searches the first name field.||firstname:John|
|lastname:||Searches the last name field.||lastname:Smith|
|status:||Search for a contact based on their status (Subscribed, Unsubscribed, Pending).||status:subscribed|
|added:||Search for contacts added on a specific date using the YYYY-MM-DD format||added:2019-08-01|
|lastchanged:||Search for contacts based on when they were last updated using the YYYY-MM-DD format||lastchanged:2020-01-28|
|fieldtag:||Search for contacts based on data in your list fields.||age:50 or address:london|
|tag:||Search for contacts based on data in your tags||tag:customer|
We also allow the use of advanced operators to search more specifically in a field.

Combining and excluding terms
You can use more than one search term to narrow down your search and reduce the number of results. You can also exclude any search filters with a hyphen - so that matches for it are not included.
