Name Column and Name Style

Similar to current versions of our full desktop applications, the first column in the Contacts area is called Name. This is a combination of Lastname, Firstname and Company, all mixed together in one column for easy sorting and access.  You can certainly click on any of the other column headings to sort by something else, but getting the Name column the way you like it is important because it is always the default way the contacts list displays.

The Name column is also used in many other places where a list of contacts are presented, such as linking an appointment or a task to a specific contact or contacts.

So, what if you don't like the current way the Name column is displayed?  Just go to options and change the Name Style!

Options is on the toolbar at the top of the website. The first section on the Options page is User options, where you should look for the drop-down choice for your Name Style preference. Your choices are:

That's every combination, so you should find a default that suits you!

Like the other user options, Name Style is saved with a cookie on this browser on this machine, so other users can have their own preference. This also means that if you use a different browser or computer, you might need to return to options on that computer to set all your personal preferences there, too.
