Absolutely the most useful function in the old interface was the ability to search all columns at one time, so entry of just four characters resulted in all records in which any column matched those four characters were retrieved (it was also nice that the search began automatically with just four characters). Why was this useful? In contact management names can change, emails can change, there can be typos or missing information. Finding a record when some search information may be uncertain is tedious, and now it's more tedious because I have to individually search multiple columns when before a single search did that for me. This extremely valuable function is gone with the new interface. Now I have to search each column individually! Usually "enhancing" an interface does not remove essential functions. Please bring back a full record search.

The new contacts interface is horrible! A tremendous step back. The old interface automatically searched on all columns, so I could enter a portion of a name or an email and get all the hits. The new interface searches just the selected columns, so if I'm trying to see if someone is listed I have to search, never being sure if the information I have is complete or current, on first name, then last name, then email before determining that it is not there. Terrible!
