More Options To Modify Viewable Columns

Here are some problems with your new design you need to fix:

 

1. On the Contacts page, I can't add a List column when I open Modify Columns. When I select List, nothing appears. Also the word "list" is not capitalized. And why is it near the bottom. Isn't it a required field?

2. On the Add Multiple Contacts page, the email field does not allow me to see the whole email address I type in. I can only see 20 characters. 60% of my email addresses, out of 7500, are more than 20 characters. In order to scan what I have typed, to make sure it is correct, I have to use arrow keys to move back and forth to see the whole address. This is a major problem.

 

3. On the Add Multiple Contacts page, the List field does not auto-complete. I have to type the whole name and spell it correctly each time. A major problem.

 

4. Also on the Add Multiple Contacts page why can't I rearrange the first three columns. I always put in first name, last name, email address.

For transparency, we currently do not have plans to make changes to the Add Multiple Contacts page.

 

This idea will now be solely focused on the request to have more options to choose from when modifying columns.

 

At this time, the following fields can be selected under Modify Columns:

 

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Job Title
  • Company Name
  • Address Line 1
  • City

 

We're updating the status of this idea to more accurately reflect its current status with our engineering team and also made slight changes to the subject line in order for it to be more easily found. We can't guarantee a commitment to deliver on this feature request but it should indicate some awareness that we have heard your feedback and could be taken under consideration for a future release.

I would like to be able to look at one of my Lists and see which TAGS people are assigned.

If I could organize my columns to include Tags as one column when looking at the contacts in a list, this would be very helpful.

I really need to be able to search by a physical address. This is something I could do before in the Advanced Search. Searching by City, State, or Zip is not helpful at all. I need the street address, because our emails are only for residents living in our neighborhood, so I need to be able to delete profiles when someone moves away. I see an alternative would be to add an Address Line 1 column on the Contacts list, but I cannot even sort by that column, so that's for really useful.

It would be very helpful to have a new contacts filter in ever list or to be able to create a date that they are available. New to List not New to account.

Add column for engagement activity rather than manually clicking on each contact to see.

Just noticed this option! But how do we see which lists they're on?

Hello! I was just in the webinar with Constant Contact and I was wondering why I can modify columns to showcase the contacts listed, but it does not allow the Birthday column to be seen? Is there any possibility to have that added? I do not want to have to use a custom field, because in the basic details 'Birthday' is shown and we have filled out our lists utilizing that

It would be great to be able to sort or filter by different columns, other than just last name.  Also, I would love to be able to have a column for a date and to sort according to that date.

Would be nice to be able to sort contacts by country. We are an international non-profit and sometimes need to send emails to specific countries.
