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 fantastic for there to be a "last opened date" column in the contacts table that shows you the last date a subscriber opened an email. It would greatly facilitate cleaning our contact lists. I know that the more names we have, the better for you. But if our lists aren't helping us achieve our goals, the value of your product decreases. Help us!

Dear Constant Contact Staff,


There are two features that would be very helpful for our church that I don't currently find in Constant Contact:

1) A way to see a list of when individual profiles were last updated, as a sort option in the main contact list (not only when they were added). Right now, I have to go in to each individual profile to find this information, and there are times when I'd like to see every contact that was recently updated on one list.

2) A way to print out a list of people who have not opened any of our emails within a chosen time span. Right now, the only way I find this information is to look at each profile individually. Is there a way to do this?


Thank you for your help.

Hi @GSMoorhead thank you for sharing your feedback! The good news is our contacts redesign addresses the customization of columns. This feature is available in our New Contacts Redesign experience which we hope to release to all customers. As for printing out a list of unopened contacts, what about exporting a copy of these contacts through our segment feature does not fit this need?

Please add the ability to sort contacts by custom fields.
I'd like to be able to sort on fields that I add to the display of contacts. For example, I am tracking our donors and would like to sort them by amount of donation. Thank you, Bill Hendrickson

It would be fantastic to be able to change the contact list columns, i.e. display the Email List(s) that a contact is attached to.  I've reviewed a lot of the comments but the replies are 'so sorry', 'I apologize' and the like, which DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR US.  Your apologies and regrets would mean a whole lot more if the problem was resolved.  That would make us, YOUR CUSTOMERS, feel like you actually want us to continue to use your product.

Every year, at the beginning of our new school year, I have to move each family into their new classroom and change the list they are on. This is one of the slowest, most painful processes I have to do. I do not look forward to it.  It would make it easier if I could see what list(s) they are on when I view active contacts or when I search for their name and they come up.  I have to click on each name to see what lists are there and change them. It takes FOREVER for the site to catch up. I have to wait for the page to reload when I remove a list and then wait while I add a list.


It would be wonderful if one of the choices at the top of the page where the column headings are name, email, company (which I use for their child's name), and LISTS. City and state do not have any relevance for me whatsoever. Please allow more choices on the column headings!


Thank you,


It would be helpful if we could choose to see different columns of data on the contacts page. Please add more field option Also, it would be helpful, once you have created a contact and you are in the contact's detailed view, that you could send a campaign directly from that page. The user interface needs to be more adaptable and flexible thanks

Hi everyone! I am following up on this customizable header feature request and would like to share he good news this is now available in our updated contact management dashboard. Users can now choose the contact information you want to display, and the order it displays in, when viewing the contacts on a specific list or all the contacts in your account. If you have any additional questions on this, please don’t hesitate to respond to this post as we would be happy to assist you further.
