The default contact list sort is by first name, which for me is not a useful way to sort. Every time I open a list, I have to re-sort it by last name. It would be better if the default sort order was by last name, or if I could set the default sort in My Settings.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. At this time you can control the sort by last or first name everytime you view the list.
Thanks for your feedback on the city/state feature. Would you like to be able to sort by any information or something specific?
I apologize for the frustration this is causing. This is really great feedback! Please vote on this and any other topics you would like to see implemented. While this may not help to accomplish all that you've mentioned, clicking on the Name and Email bars at the top of your list can help to change to the sort by last name and email address.
Hi Robert, Thank you for your feedback! The lists do default to sorting by First Name, however the sort order can be changed when you are on a list to sort by Last Name or email address. I hope this helps! Please continue to vote on any topics you would like to see implemented.
Hi Constance, Thank you for your feedback. I'm really sorry for the annoyance this is causing. By default, it does sort by First Name, however there is an option to sort by Last Name and by the Email Address as well. By clicking on the Name or Email column headings, you will have the option to change how the list is sorted. Below is an example of how to do so. I hope this helps!
Thank you for the feedback! I'm glad you like it! Yes, you can sort by last name by clicking on the Name header at the top of your list. This will give you the option to sort by Last Name in descending or ascending order. You can even sort by email address by clicking on the Email header as well. I hope this helps! Thanks again for posting.
Hi Judy, Thank you for posting. I'm really sorry for the frustration this is causing. At the moment, the ability to sort by date added is not available, however we are looking into implementing this field again. As for sorting by last name and email address, this can be done by clicking on the column headers Name and Email. Click on the Name column header gives you the option to sort by Last Name and clicking on the Email header allows you to sort alphabetically by the email address. We are also looking into modifying the number of contacts you can view per page, as well as possible improvements to paging options. Your feedback on this is really helpful. Please stay tuned for updates on these topics and please keep voting on these topics that you would like to see implemented. Your patience is very much appreciated as we continue to make updates. My apologies once again for the frustration.
asked that I post this request on his behalf. He would like to choose what contact fields show in the contact management landing page
It would would be very helpful if there was a column when you saw all contacts that showed what list they were if any. I wanted to check to make sure that no contact was missed or not in a group and the only way to do that is to open them up individually which is very time consuming. Thank you, Karyn - Mandala - cfta
Hello, Thank you for your feedback. This is a great suggestion. I can certainly see the value in being able to see that. As a work around to this issue, it could be helpful to export your contacts. This will provide you with a column that lets you know what list(s) each of your contacts may be in.
Hello, Thank you for posting. I appreciate your feedback on being able to customize the columns. Regarding being able to edit the Company for a particular contact: try clicking on the name of the contact instead of the Company Name, when you are viewing this contact among a list of others. Clicking on the name will bring up the contact's details and allow you to remove/edit the Company, while clicking on the Company name first will take you to that Company Profile, which shows you all contacts associated with that Company (which is why it was requiring an entry.) I hope this helps..
I am not impressed with the new contacts format. I need to be able to sort my contacts by more than four fields. I just spent (wasted) nearly an hour removing 40 contacts. With the old format, it would have taken me two minutes. This is NOT acceptable. I have many of colleagues that started with your service and are now using ***removed by mod***, I am seriously considering a switch.
I am very sorry to hear this. Can you tell me more about what isn't working? We recently added even more header options to your contact information, You can control these using the gear icon!
What information would you like to see here? Are you removing random contacts or contacts with a specific piece of information?
Thanks for your help.
Thank you for posting. I appreciate your feedback on these topics. We are currently looking into providing the options of seeing more contacts per page, as well as more customization in the columns you see. You can, however, change the view to show "Date Added" and "Source" instead of City/State. This can be access by clicking on the gear icon to the top right corner of your list.
You also make a great point about reducing the vertical spacing that each contact occupies. Please continue to vote on this and any other topics you would like to see implemented.
Hello Tawanna -
There is a current issue we are in the process of looking into, it involves importing excel files with blank fields with the actual excel file you are importing.If you are using a xls or xlsx, please try converting it over to a csv file and import using that file type, you should notice that contact fields remain intact and wont move around.
If you have any further questions please DM me!
