Back and Forward button in list view

Please put "back" and "forward" buttons on the top of contacts lists, as well as the bottom, so we don't have to scroll through everyone to advance to the next page. Even better, add an alpha tab so users can go right to the that section of the alphabet. Or put it back to the old way, which was better. It's SO annoying how programs have to constantly change and it's not always for the better.

It would be nice if we didn't have to scroll to the bottom each time we want to go to the next page of contacts. Also would be nice if we could see more at one time. I would also like to set my default to sort by last name not first.

Most UI's with 50 names in a list, include backward and forward navigation at both the top and the bottom of the screen. The list of Active Contacts (which I am still trying to delete from) has the navigation only at the bottom of the screen which requires a great deal of scrolling. This is becoming more annoying with each page.

Possible to have page numbers or Forward/Back arrows at top of contact lists, not just at bottom? It's tedious to have to scroll to bottom of each page when editing - would be easier to flip through complete lists of contacts (eg straight to last page I was working on, or even page 5 of 9)

Please put an option on the top of the contact page so you can go directly to a particular letter of the alphabet vs. scrolling through every page. Also, checking a contact's name doesn't "stick" when you go to the next page, so names can only be edited in batches vs. at one time.

gosh dang it. I'm trying to describe my feedback in section above and other previous feedback pops up and erases what I have written. The complaint that I'm trying to post is there should be arrows at the top of the contact list like there is at the bottom so we don't have to scroll to the bottom to get to the arrows.

I miss the back button on pages
Occasional Visitor
When the entire contact list appears on the screen, in order to get to the next page, you need to scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the next button. This feature should appear at the top of the page as well thus eliminating the need to scroll down the page.

Why are there no paging controls at the top of the contact list, only at the bottom. I am cleaning up my contact list and when I have to edit an individual entry it is very cumbersome to get back to my place in the list. I have to reload the list, scroll to the bottom, go to next page, scroll to the bottom, etc. At least if there were paging controls at the top I could more easily navigate back to my next item.
Visitor

It would be nice to be able to navigate back to your previous page, especially if you were searching for a contact. When I hit my back button or Contacts, it refreshes back to the main page and then I have to enter my search criteria again.

Difficult to move between names and lists. Should be able to scroll between names at the top.
Occasional Visitor
In cleaning up our e-mail list it would be nice if each time I deleted or removed an e-mail that it didn't go back to the beginning of the list. It would also be nice to have the page advance and end of the record tabs at the top and the bottom of the page.
Occasional Visitor
Need to put the advance page < > at the top of the page around city/state like you do at the bottom of the list of e-mails. Need to put the action stuff (options, etc) at the bottom of the page like you do take the top. I have to scroll to the bottom to advance through the emails. Then scroll to the top to take an action. VERY INCONVENIENT AND TIME CONSUMING as I go back and forth constantly. Overall, I hate the new format for contacts. Feels cramped. All info crammed into one page. Sometimes I just want to see the lists and their numbers. E-mails to the left are distracting.
Visitor
Previously, I made the suggestion that a way is provided to view all contacts at once and not have to move from screen to screen. Given that currently you do have to move from screen to screen, a have a couple of other suggestions. Please provide options at both top and bottom of contact screen for navigating to next (and previous) screens - currently, the option is only shown at the bottom. Similarly, please provide the button titled "Add to email lists" at the bottom in addition to where it currently is at the top. This would be much more convenient than the current system. Also, it would be helpful if there was a way to jump to a particular letter in the contact list. The search option is limiting for two reasons: (1) it won't let you search just with a letter, and (2) even if it did, or when you search by a last name, it just lists matches with that information, rather than putting you at that place in the list. It would be extremely helpful to have a way of jumping to a particular spot in the entire list, not just to a particular entry.

Is it possible to add the edit buttons at the top to the bottom? Can the page button also be added to the top? If I am in a list of 2000 names and on page 18 and edit a contact it takes me back to page 1. Can it stay on the page I'm working on as I edit? Thank you!
Regular Visitor
The new Contacts page section is geared towards seeing a bulky lists of all the contacts we have, but it's not logically how I want to view the data. Without context as to which group they belong to, the list loses meaning, and requires additional navigation in order to bring sense to the design. Requiring this separate navigation then removes the ability to comprehensively view how contacts relate to all groups.

i'm going through my 2400 contacts, and i need a page forward/back button at the top as well as at the bottom. when i'm pages deep into my list to edit a contact, and i want to go back and continue down my list of contacts, i get sent back to page one, then i have to scroll down to the bottom of the page, then go find my page to pick up where i left off! Somebody shoot me! also, need to have a choice of page length at top and bottom.
Occasional Visitor
Please consider adding the buttons at the botom of the contact page (1-50 of 1200 items) to the very top of the contact list. Also, it's very time consuming to have go all the back to the 1st contact every time I have to make the slightest of changes. It would be much faster to just go back to the point I was, in my contact list, and go on from there. I'm just sayin'....
Occasional Visitor
It's very annoying that every time I update a contact it goes back to the very first page of my contacts. Plus the arrow over to the next page is at the VERY bottom. Please fix this issue. Thanks.
Visitor
There should be forward and backward arrows at the top and the bottom of the contact lists, not just at the bottom. Not user-friendly to have to scroll to the bottom of the page to get to the next page.
Visitor
It would be helpful to have a link to navigate multiple pages at the top of the contacts list, instead of at the bottom. This would be better than having to scroll to the bottom of the page to go to the next page of contacts.
Occasional Visitor
When removing contacts, I have to use the arrows at the bottom of the page to go to the next group of 50 each time I add contacts from the active list to a new list. Need arrows at the top and bottom of the page or at least stay on the same page after adding contacts. Too time consuming to go back to where I stopped.
Member
It would be nice to have 1) forward, back buttons at both the TOP and bottom (as opposed to just the bottom) of the lists; 2) to return to the same place in the lists if you make a change to a contact rather than applying the change and being returned to the top of the list when you are done (if you have a long list and are in the middle making changes, that can be a real pain and take unnecessary time to return to the same spot and continue when you are doing list maintenance)
Visitor
scroll through each page individually. It wastes a lot of time.
Occasional Contributor
It would be so much easier to navigate, or not have to navigate if there were buttons at the top and bottom of the pages. Some pages always take me back to the top of the page. Others leave me where I left-off. This is mostly concerning contacts. When making a new "tag" the program always takes me back to the first page and won't let me keep checking who I want in the tag going through the entire list. It unchecks the names if you click to the next page. OR it would be good to have a "go to page---" That is what I have for now.
Occasional Visitor
I HATE having to scroll all the way to the bottom of my page of contacts to move it to a different page! Directional arrows shouod be at the TOP as well as the bottom of each page. Thank you.
New Member
veiwing contacts is not as easy since you have to scroll down to the bottom to view different contacts by letters. Returning back to contact list is not as easy either.
It would be helpful to have the page back and page forward arrows available on the top of the contact list, not just the bottom.
Visitor
I selected the list view of 500 per page and have several pages to go through to select some of my clients to put onto another list that I want to email to. But each time I add someone, the list defaults back to the beginning and there is no button to advance pages. I have to go to the bottom of each page to advance to the next page too. Ray
Member
when managing the bounces on an email, the scrolling bar is only at the end, it will be beneficial if it is also on the top.
Occasional Visitor
there need to be an paging arrow at the top not just the bottom.
Member
Scrolling through page after page is sooo tedious, please consider adding these functionalities, or if they already exist, let me know how to do it: 1). Do not keep defaulting back to the first page- scroll to the NEXT page 2) Show the "n of nnn" and next page arrow on the top and bottom of the list 3) Feature a search of all active contacts wherein I can start at a selected page, or alpha name
Occasional Visitor
Please put previous and next page buttons at the TOP of the page as well as at the bottom.
Regular Visitor
The ability to move from one page of a contact list to the next should also be located at the top of page as you have it at the bottom of the page.
Visitor
When I select a contact to delete and then delete - return me to the page I was on when I deleted instead of sending me back to the beginning of the alphabetical sort. Put the page forward/back controls at the top and bottom of the list, so I don't have to scroll over and over when I know I need to go forward several pages.
I would like to suggest that the navigation be fixed so that after you export contacts to a new list, that the main contacts screen doesn't go back to the first page. I have to keep finding my place and it's annoying. Also suggest that you put page forward arrows at the top as well as bottom -- there's way too much scrolling up and down to take actions during the list building process. Thanks.

When I'm trying to go through thousands of contacts, it is tedious to have to press the next button at the bottom of the page only. There should also be the page navigation arrows at the top of the list, as well as a way to skip pages. Some sites let you type in the number of the page you wish to skip through, some let you skip by the entry alphabetization by listing the alphabet at the top and making each letter a link to the start of that letter's listings. Please make these changes to improve the speed at which I can edit my contacts. Even with 500 rows per page, I am wasting time waiting for the pages to load so I can scroll down and click next over and over until I get deep into my list. If your mission really is to help businesses for e-mail lists, you NEED to have these features. Thanks.
Occasional Visitor
There are forward and back buttons at the bottom of the alphabetized contact list, but nothing at the top. Having these buttons at the top also would be a great help! In addition, having the chance to click on a letter in the alphabet to quickly zoom in to that portion of the list would be even better!
Occasional Contributor
Add navigation by page to the top and bottom of screen when viewing reports.
Visitor
It would be much easier if I could switch through pages of contacts at both the top and bottom of the page I'm on instead of having to scroll to the bottom every time.
Occasional Contributor
How about adding the scroll through contacts to the top of the list as well as at the bottom. I was scrolling through a large number of contacts and each time I went to a new page I had to scroll to the bottom to get to the next group. Very tedious.
Occasional Visitor
at the top of the page too...every time I delete a contact, I have to scroll to the bottom of the page to advance further into the list. Not very user friendly.
Visitor

but it always goes back to the other way. Why won't it stay that way I set it? 2) It would be nice to have the rows per page view and also the page scroll at the top of the page as well as the bottom of the page, so we don't have to scroll all the way down just to go to the next page or increase the page view Thank you, CC works well for me, I am enjoying it.

Great feedback, thanks for posting! I am glad that this account is working so well for you!

When viewing any list, they need to have the prev/next navigation at both the top and the bottom. I really don't need to scroll through the whole list every time in order to get to a certain segment of the list, especially since there's no sort functionality. And even if there were list sorting, I'd need it all the more, since I know that I want to get to page X where the "M"s likely are.

Folks, believe it or not, people like to scroll through more than 25 emails per page.  Please do two things:

 

1) Long-term Request: Increase the highest per page option to 100 (minimum).  May as well remove the "5" option.  For as long as it takes to navigate, does anyone actually use that?  Why not include an "all" option?

 

2) Immediate Request: Please include a page navigation bar at the top of the list, not just at the bottom.

 

Thank you!

Each time my list of contacts resets and shows them from page 1, but I know that I'm working on page 20, I can't go from page to page from the top of the list. I have to scroll down towards the bottom of the web page to find an arrow to go to the next page.
Member
When there are thousands of contacts and the name must be misspelled because it's not coming up in the search, the navigation becomes a burden. 1.) If it were at the top and bottom then it's not necessary to scroll to the bottom each time to get to the next page. 2.) It would save a lot of time if it were possible to select either a page (by letter would be even better), skipping several pages at a time (rather than going one page at a time). Please consider for future updates.
Occasional Contributor
Why are there not backward and forward navigation buttons at the TOP of the list pages instead of only at the bottom??? And why when you delete a contact does it take you back to the top of the list instead of where you last were, so you have to then scroll or skip all the way back to where you were?
Member
clicking on > next until you get to the right page. Before you numbered the pages and we could click on the page we were working on. You also had it the click on at the top of the page and bottom of the page.
