How To Use Smart Lists

This is a visual walkthrough of Xero’s Smart Lists Contact feature.

“Smart Lists” use special filters to create a customized Group list. The preset parameters can create lists based on items purchased, customers with outstanding or overdue invoices by due date, when last payment was received, or client location. You can use multiple sets of conditions, and even include specific Contact Groups to easily create that perfect marketing list or email blast.

All of your saved searches can be found under the Smart Lists tab on the Contacts page or under Smart Lists.

Once your filtered list is generated, select which contacts you’d like to use. Select Export to download your list as either a CSV file or a Constant Contact file.
