Customizable Contact Headers

Need to have the ability to change header based on need. For instance, in my case cities and states are not as relevant as country. Yet, I cannot change the columns!

I NEED to see the phone # of the people who have opened my e-mails so I can follow up. This is beyond helpful. Otherwise this is of VERY little help.

I can't search based on wedding date, or even the wedding month which is important for the email marketing I need to do.

The entire reason I added the custom fields to my most recent upload was so that I could sort by those fields.


When I tried to chat with a specialist to see if this was possible, she informed me it was not possible through Constant Contact, and that I would need to export to Excel in order to do that. Considering I uploaded the lists FROM EXCEL, this defeats the entire purpose. (She was very nice and tried to be helpful, so I have no complaints about her customer service.  But seriously, where do you think my list came from?)


I guess I could 'tag' (I DO like the tag feature - it's great!) each of the custom field options within these contacts to then do what I want, but I cannot even see the custom field without going in to each individual's contact info page. To go in to each individual's contact page to find out the custom fields and then tag will take a very long time, again defeating the purpose of why I added the custom fields so that I could quickly and easily sort.


Moral of the story: please allow the Contact Management view to show/sort more than just Name/Email/DateAdded/Source or Name/Email/Company/City/State!

I need to sort by emails!!!!

it would be nice to be able to choose your view settings when viewing your active contacts. i.e. be able to choose what columns you can see. For example, name, list, tags or name, email, list, tags
Would like to be able to pull from contacts their birthdays each month

Thank you for your feedback!  You are able to search by custom fields or tags if you added their birthday into one of those fields.  Is this how you did that or did you add a custom date field?

I have sent you an email with my contact information.  Get back in touch with me and I can walk you through the options or provide your suggestions to our engineers for future improvements.

would love to be able to sort contacts by the "notes" field like we used to be able to. the advanced search pulls up the contacts that have a note but you need to then view the contact to find out what the note is.
