In Aritic PinPoint, you can import contacts and set them as “Do not contact”. Sometimes you may need to import opt-out contacts i.e. contacts who do not wish to receive any communications from you.

Open your .CSV file. Add a new column into your CSV file. In this column, the values have to be “yes” or “1” if the contact is opt-out.
