How to find out contacts with status bounced?

Hi folks,

I would like to select all contacts with status bounced or such to analyse the issues and, possibly, reactivate it. But I do not see this option in Brevo. What am I missing or overseeing?

Hi @Wojciech , thanks for posting on this community!

There is a simple way to do that, by creating a segment of your contacts:

  • go this page: Brevo
  • click on « Add a filter »
  • type « Bounce »
    and you’ll be able to choose your criteria, see this screenshot:

Once you’ll have set up your filters, you’ll see which contacts correspond to them :tada:

PS: if you want to know more about segments, you’ll find more details here: https://help.brevo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360021703959-About-segments

  • Log in to your Zapier account.
  • Click on « Make a Zap » to create a new Zap.
  1. Trigger Event:
  • Choose a trigger app that corresponds to where your contacts are stored. For example, if your contacts are in a CRM, select the CRM app as the trigger.
  1. Select Trigger Event:
  • Choose a trigger event that signifies a change in contact status. This might be an event like « New Contact » or « Contact Updated. »
  1. Connect Your Account:

  1. Test the Trigger:
  • Test the trigger to ensure it’s correctly capturing contacts with the specified status.
  1. Action Event:
  • Choose an action app where you want to perform the next steps. For example, you might want to send an email or create a task in another app.
  1. Connect Your Action Account:
  • Connect the account for the app you selected in the action step.
  1. Set Up Action:
  • Configure the action step to perform the desired action on the selected contacts. This could involve sending an email to notify you of bounced contacts or creating a task to reactivate them.
  1. Test the Zap:

Thanks @CelvinKlassen .
This is indeed another solution, but it seems quite complex compared to just applying a filter directly on Brevo, no?
