The 3 most common items of contact information that is collected and imported within Constant Contact are First Name, Last Name, and Company Name. Our Contact systems gives you many more options to choose from to label your contact’s information, whether you add them manually one at a time or you’re uploading a file. However, even we don’t know the exact labels that will fit every businesses needs for their contact database. When this happens, we turn the reins over to you.
With full control of what label you wish to utilize, our Custom Field feature is available to you. Let me show you how easy it is to get your Custom Fields set up to accommodate you.

Thank you for reaching out to the Community about your contacts. I can definitely understand how helpful it would be for your additional fields to be automatically selected. I apologize this is not a feature this is currently available. You are correct, when adding in a single contact, you will had to search for the field from the drop down. As a work around I would suggest adding in contacts through a file or by typing in/paste multiple contacts. You will still have to search for the field, but the good news this will allow you to do multiple at a time.
