Do not contact lists view

Email campaigns: Feature coming soon

Use this view to manage do not contact (DNC) list entries. A DNC list is a data source of telephone numbers or email addresses excluded from a campaign. When a campaign selects records from its contact list, numbers or email addresses that match entries in any DNC source assigned to that campaign are excluded. A campaign can have multiple DNC entries assigned to it. A DNC entry can be assigned to multiple campaigns.

Just-in-time DNC scrubbing helps an organization stay compliant with legislative requirements. Before placing calls or sending email messages, telephone numbers, email addresses, and expiration dates are compared with the latest data in DNC sources to ensure that restricted numbers or addresses are not used in a campaign. A DNC entry has no effect on dialing unless it is assigned to a campaign. 

Note: Outbound dialing does not apply rules, contactable times, or DNC scrubbing to scheduled callback telephone numbers.

Displays the do Not Contacts Lists view.

Three types of DNC entries are supported:

  • Internal—Administrators can create an internal DNC list by uploading a file of telephone numbers. Administrators commonly acquire these numbers from state and federal agencies, purchase them from third-party providers, or use in-house corporate records. Internal DNC lists can include an expiration DateTime column to block attempts for a certain period. Contact attempts can resume after the expiration date. Expiration dates cannot be more than 180 days in the future. Expiration times must be in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Use the formatyyyy-MM-ddTHH:mmZ, such as 2017-05-20T01:44Z, 2021-03-08T12:30Z, or 2021-03-08T12:00Z. An invalid format imports the phone number without an expiration DateTime.
