Filter Contacts by Groups

Have a large contact list? The larger it is, the slower it gets when loading across the web.

Other than having a smaller database to begin with, one solution is to use our Groups feature to organize your Contacts into smaller subsections.

If you have already created groups for your Contacts, there are two ways to use this info with the Mobile Edition of Chaos Data Live to filter down the list of Contacts to the select group you are interested in.

  1. On the fly, you can tap on the Label at the top of the Contacts area.  By default, when showing the complete list of names, it will say "All Contacts".  If you tap on this label, it will be replaced with a drop down list from which you can select a particular group you would like to focus on. You can also return back to the full list by choosing "All".
  2. In the Options area, one choice available to you is to select the Default Contact Group Filter for your Contacts. If you make a selection here, this will be the group the main Contact area starts with.   For users with very large databases, this is highly recommended, so you can have it start with a much smaller portion of your list that will be quicker to load and work with!
