Target Lists

API change history

The Target Lists API allows clients to manage lists of subscribers for use in targeting. With the Target List API clients can:

Retrieve a list of target lists and number of subscribers Retrieve list and number of subscribers for a target list Add or remove individuals subscribers from a target list Batch add subscribers to a target list Archive a target list

Target lists provide a convenient mechanism to sort specific groups of subscribers. These lists can contain subscribers from a particular marketing initiative, from a specific source or system. Target lists are available for use in the Yesmail Enterprise Marketing platform when defining the targeting for a message.
