Bulk edit contacts

Start at your contacts page and apply any applicable filters you need to isolate just the contacts you need to edit.

Select the contacts you need to update. You can do this by clicking the checkbox for each contact, or click Select All from the right sidebar. 

After you've made your selection, click Bulk Edit from the right sidebar.

If the selection you make requires a secondary selection (e.g. Communication Preferences, Contact Type, or Custom Fields), you will be asked the secondary identifying question. 

Shown below is an example of selecting  Contact Type from the dropdown, showing a subsequent dropdown.
