On the lists page, the "Refresh lists from MailChimp" button does not actually get lists from mailchimp (as far as I can tell). All it does is clear the mailchimp lists cache.

Lists are fetched from mailchimp on cron.

Same here after I updated to 7.x-2.9
Now I do not have list under - Available MailChimp lists

This post is not really about missing lists.

It is about the button needing to be renamed, or the functionality of the button being changed.

Lists are fetched if the cache is clear by any function that needs to see them. This functions as a trigger for the next list request to refresh the lists, so it does effectively refresh them.

It sounds like you may have had issues related to #1388722: Lists not showing up..., if so please upgrade to 7.x-2.10.

2.10 fixed this for me...
Thanks.

I AM using 7.x-2.10 and I have this same problem. I have a list at MailChimp called, simply, "Subscribers".
All the MailChimp services are activated and I have a proper API Key.
Clicking on "Refresh lists from MailChimp", and going back with the "my lists" link, I see nothing there.
Not sure why 2.10 is working for others.
Any suggestions?

MailChimp list are not listed on that page..
This page list the drupal-mailchimp-list, not what is listed at www.mailchimp.com.
Check this....
- Click (add a list)
- Scroll down to (MailChimp List Settings) -> (MailChimp List Settings)
Is your mailchimp list, listed there? This is what the update list link is supposed to update!!!
I too was confused at first... but now it works great.

Version:7.x-2.9» 7.x-2.7

Update: Completely uninstalled 2.10 and install 2.7, since that worked for others.
Still no lists!

As mentioned in #6, you have to manually add lists. So use the add list link instead of the refresh lists one.

This is what confused me before too, because I was used to the old drupal 6 version where all the lists are pulled in automatically.

Using Drupal 7.19, MailChimp 2.10

As indicated, I tried using "add list" instead of "Refresh lists from MailChimp" but got WSOD at admin/config/services/mailchimp/lists/add

My bad. Works fine. Did not have the library files in the correct directory.

I had the same problem in #1894956: Existing MailChimp list not available when adding a list in Drupal 7.19 and MailChimp 2.9 and it was because of a confusing interface in the end not because the functionality was broken.
