The default contact list is the list that will automatically be selected when you’re adding new Uptime Monitors or Blacklist Monitors.

This default contact list is marked with a gray star in your contact lists view.

You can easily remove your default contact list by clicking the gray star.

By not having a default contact list, you will need to select a contact list every time you’re adding a new monitor.

It’s also just as easy to select another contact list as your default. By simply clicking the star next to the desired contact list, like so:

You cannot have more than one default Contact List at any given time.

Having a default Contact List doesn’t mean you cannot select a different list when adding new monitors.

This feature can be useful if you’re mainly using one contact list on pretty much all of your monitors. By not having to select a contact list every time you add a new monitor, you end up saving a lot of time in the long run.
