We’re pleased to announce a major overhaul of our contacts browse page. While we never thought the previous incarnation was bad, we did feel it could be better. We finally carved out some time and through a major team effort, were able to launch the redesigned browse contacts page today.
Of special interest is that there’s now a live search option on the top left, which makes it really easy to narrow down to a single contact record. This is my favorite part of the redesign; I usually know exactly who I’m looking for and live search will pull up that record as soon as I start typing.
We also added some more filters to allow you to view your contacts in different ways. You can filter by Individuals, Companies, Most Active. You can further refine that by choosing a tag to filter by. We kept the alphabetical search option as well. All these options work together to help you refine your contact list. And the best part though is these search filters are persistent. Each time you come back to the browse page, it will remember your search preferences and display your contacts based on those options. So if you only ever want to see individuals, select that preference. Every time you come back to browse you will only see individuals in your search results.
Ahh, but there is something missing here you say…where is the business card view?
We’ve made it so if you hover over a contact name with your mouse, up pops that old familiar business card. We also added to ability to tag and SuperTag from within the business card.
Last but not least, batch actions are still here and we just launched a brand new one…merge! You can now merge together 2 records. Pick the contact to become the main record and we will merge over all comms, location information etc into the new contact.
We tried hard not to take away anything and feel that the overall experience is much better. We hope you agree! As always we appreciate your feedback so let us know what you think.
