Organizing our contacts is becoming a nightmare because the search only shows emails. Is there a way to see the name column as well?

Doesn't look like there is a way to add columns to the Search results page.

However, in one-off searches, you could always make a segment that only calls out a specific name if that's what you're looking for.

For example -

I hope that helps in some way!

Edit: You can also simply export your audience/group/segment and sort in an Excel spreadsheet. Not ideal but may be easiest depending on what you're trying to accomplish.

Hello! 

Great suggestion on segmentation for narrowing down audience members with given parameters. 

Column sorting has been a highly requested feature and we currently have a beta running for a version of this!

I have enabled this for both of your accounts, you should be able to select what columns you can sort by within your audience going forward.

I hope this helps!

Cheers,

Zach

Awesome!
Though it looks like the column sorting feature hasn't applied to the account.
I might be missing something.

This option would be SUPER helpful managing my contacts. Specifically so I can match accounts to other accounts by NAME, not email. Most other accounts use names.

Sorry about that Carly, its possible the wrong sub account was opted into this feature. I have resubmitted a request for Spokane Journal of Business (1801945) and a new request for Fit Mama Inc (1760068) as well. I will update as soon as I hear back.

Thanks!
