I am trying to search a contact by a detail of their email or last name, all of which I could select for in your old template, but this feature seems to have disappeared. Where is it? How am I supposed to do a detailed search now in your system?
Please delete the advanced search function. Sometimes I only know one part of an email address but there is no "contains" option. Or please revert back to the old way where you can do a free search of all the contacts without specific fields involved.
Agreed... I type a name and record number for the 'Company' field. So one contact could include "Client 1234".
If I search for '1234' - no result. ugh. I just realized this and wasted over an hour of my time entering data that cannot be used.....
...and now I have to figure out a hack to circumvent this crappy search GUI, because I cannot use Custom Fields either... I have to enter another ticket to address that problem - Custom Fields can NOT be searched at all.
This seems basic and I am disappointed that a company focused on interacting with contacts has such a craptastic Customer search.
[edit 2020-08-10: I realize there's an advanced search, but the operators should include "has" or "contains" (in addition to is/starts with/is not/is blank)... or at least expand the auto populated search results to include the 'has' results.]
[edit 2 2020-08-10: Wildcard search is a thing... it's just not advertized.... use "*" as an operator. https://community.constantcontact.com/t5/Managing-Contacts/How-to-search-using-quot-contains-quot-in...]
Hi @AndrewK51122 at this time our updated contact management search tool can only search for addresses that 'begins with' or 'ends with' the search detail entered. It is a feature request we are tracking to have the ability of searching for contacts the way you have described. Because of this we have opened up your idea so other users can weigh in as well.
Hi @JonL940 what logic are you looking for when viewing your contacts? Also, what details are you searching for through the previous advanced function?
Anyone else hate the new update to contacts? the search field is now basically useless. you can no longer search a partial for anything. you need to enter the entire domain name, including .com I used to put in a partial name or a partial company name in the search field and anything with that letter configuration would show up. now you need the entire last name and have to drop down and select name. or you have to put the entire domain and drop down and select domain. a quick contacts search is no longer an option. CONSTANT CONTACT DEVELOPERS - IF YOU ARE LISTENING - PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD SEARCH CAPABILITIES OF A PARTIAL ACROSS ALL FIELDS.
I very much dislike how you have changed the "Contacts" section of my account. I used to be able to search by typing in a few characters and it would pull up all relevant contacts, and now it does not do that. Now I have to type the exact email address or an entire name before it pulls up the contact. This is a step backward in efficiency. I would highly suggest that you switch this capability back.
