"Contacts" features improvements



  • Hello Everybody,

    First of all, congratulations for all the work done. The design and fluidity of the interface are very pleasant.

    However, there is a basic functionality that is sorely lacking: it is the lack of sorting of contacts that can only be displayed in alphabetical order by first name and then last name.
    Similarly, the search option only queries the name and phone number fields, all other fields (addresses, business details) are ignored.
    And finally, the impossibility of exporting the address book (in.csv format, for example) is also a significant lack.

    The address book is probably the most important basic personal data in a phone... ahead any other applications that could be installed.

    Do you plan to support these improvements?
    Thank you for taking my request into account.



  • @lool_lauris Please take a look in the list of issues opened against the address book app on Github.

    If your issues are already filed, mark them as also affecting you. If they are not, then feel free to open them yourself, one issue per problem.

    After doing that, if you have the time and interest, you could try implementing the features you request yourself. Because I am not sure, but it seems that the app is in need of a mainfainer.



  • Hi arubislander,
    Thank you for your reply.

    I did find requests on Github about the sorting possibilities on the name. I followed your advice and joined the ongoing requests => https://github.com/ubports/address-book-app/issues/12#issuecomment-552354416

    It would be a great pleasure to help of implementing the features but I have not the skills to do it, unfortunately.

    About my remark about the impossibility of exporting the address book, I just discovered that it is actually possible. I apologize for the mistake.
