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!

It would be a great help to allow the end user to add additional columns to the views. i.e. In the contacts view there are only 4 columns. If one adds custom field such as "Followup Date". It would be a huge benefit to allow us to add the column to the view, so we can see at a glance what dates we have follow up. As it currently stands we have to open each contact to see if there is follow up needed.
We should be able to customize the Contact View with the additional custom fields we create

I see there's been various changes in Contacts and sady selecting the columns to view isn't one of them. Instead I can see by source and date added (useful) or 'City/State' - utterly useless, so here's a bit of shart, sharp feedback for the Product Manager: I understand the US view of the world is that things pretty much start at SFO and end at BOS...though there is somewhere called 'England' somewhere out to the east that includes places like London, France and Germany (I used to work in the US and so understyand this quite well), actually this is NOT the case. While the US is so large City and State help, but in the rest of the world it is *Country* that's important. In fact, in many Countries people speak different languages and so Country is really critical - not everyone in our markets speaks English and Spanish - so Country is kind of in real critical. Maybe you should reflect that?
When you see the full list of your contacts, it would be nice if you could see what list they belonged to.

we use a standard ballot in our 3 locations. the cloumn heads in 'add multiple contacts' page always default to your settings. please make them stay at what I want from save to save. Bob Tyne 705-749-9474 ext 204
why can't i have a contact row with my lists on it on the Contact Management Page to sort? I don't want the option of City, State I want to see which ones I don't have assigned to a list?

Unfortunately they programmed almost no flexibilty into the view-and-sort-by-heading features.  It's a major system deficiency.  And the reprogamming to make it what users truly need would be quite significant, I imagine. 


To do any meaningful work and reporting I export everything I can into a .csv file.  Like just tonight, I wanted to look at the Did Not Opens for the last two newsletters combined, then the last three newsletters combined, then the last four, last five, and last six.  And I wanted to exclude from the counts based on Email Status and Tags values.  Downloaded six files, did some cleanup in Excel, then most the work after importing the files into Access.  Good thing is, I enjoy doing that kind of thing!


Flexible, customizable reporting features could be improved.

Yeah, that's the kind of flexibility I'm talking about!  Many users would benefit by being able to customize little settings like this.  I'd like the designers to think in terms of maximum flexibility for users when they do their programming.




The ability to alphabetize by last name in all contact lists is necessary!!
I would like to be able to view the physical addresses for my contacts without having to either export a list to Excel spreadsheet or click into the individual contact so that I can immediately see which contacts do not have physical home or office addresses.
