We’ve just included a new feature when importing subscribers – the ability to supply filters to narrow down the data returned from the external source. This is useful when handling different types of contacts, and only needing to import a certain subset as subscribers.

Each external source has it’s own unique set of filters, depending on the available fields that can be searched when ActiveCampaign connects to the service.
To filter results based on a particular field, just supply the search phrase in the textbox, or select the appropriate value from the drop-down:

You will then be able to map all of the fields as normal:

The resulting import will only include the contacts that met your filter requirement.
For example – for targeting purposes, you could import contacts from certain states or within specific companies. The send your mailings only to that list or segment.
