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!

With the new contacts display, the whole name is listed. It made me worry that I had entered a "whole name" for the contact, as opposed to a separate "first name" and "last name". This is important to me as my greeting is dependent on having the first name. Can we have the contacts display clearly show that first name and last name are in separate columns? I just went through a list to assure myself that I hadn't imported the names incorrectly. It would be ridiculous for my clients to receive an email saying, "Dear John Miller, ..." as opposed to "Dear John, ..."

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.

Hi Barb,

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.

I added country as a column when I was inputting my contact information. I would like that info to appear when I am looking at my contacts. Is this possible and can I sort my contacts by country?

Prior to the updates, entering was a two-step process, where I entered part of the data - email, name, address, city, but then had to go back in and search for that contact, to add the state and zip code. At least that was the only way I knew how to do it. REQUESTED UPDATE: It would great if I could see names, email address, phone, and address, along with date added and/or date updated in one screen.

I prefer the old system for entering contacts. I have to create, save and upload, then assign fields from an Excel sheet to add contacts now. Also, I'd prefer if my contacts were listed alphabetically by LAST name. Thank you.

First look and the information in the header row is something I wanted to change. I went to the gear thinking I would be able to customize. I don't use "city, state" so it it a wasted view for me.
