Contacts sort order

Post by Grass » Sat Feb 18, 2017 6:15 pm

Dear friends,

is it possible to implement this sort order: "Sort by CompanyName if FirstName field is blank"?

If the answer is "Yes", please, consider to add this request to your "To Do" list.
I am sure, most of DW users would agree with me, it will be very usefull and convinient feature.

Thanks in advance.

Hello
In the default sort, it works like this. But only when all the name fields are empty.

Hello, devin,
do you mean all contacts(in my case it about 1000 contacts in my list) "FirstName" and "LastName" fields have to be empty?
Now (in my contacts list I am using English and Hebrew languages) the "default" sort brings first contacts with empty "FirstName" (sorted from A to Z by "CompanyName" field), then contacts in Hebrew with empty "FirstName" field (sorted like from A to Z " but in Hebrew by "CompanyName" field). And after that contacts with not empty "FirstName"(sorted from A to Z) and then contacts in Hebrew with not empty "FirstName" field (sorted like from A to Z, but in Hebrew.

P.S. The build in contacts manager (now I am Using OnePlus 6, AOS 8.0.1) sorts my contacts as I need: All contacts in English are sorted from A to Z regardless of "FirstName" field state - empty or not empty! The same situation with contacts in Hebrew. Any hints?

Thanks in advance!
And thank You very much for implementation of contact sharing without "Note" field - it is very useful.

Oddly, the default sorting using the system-provided sorting scheme should work the same as the system contact.

Exactly! Now DW "default" sorting provides sorting nearly I need: All contacts in English are sorted from A to Z regardless of "FirstName" field state - empty or not empty! (Oddly, but there are some not sorted contacts in the end of the list). The same situation with contacts in Hebrew.

But, please review the attachment, there are duplicated letters in Quick-jump! I marked few of duplicates (same letters- same colors).
Is there any chance to fix it?

P.S. There are no merged or linked contacts in my list. Only contacts belong to one Google account (but I am not synchronize them with Google) and I am synchronize them with MyPhoneExplorer software.

P.P.S I think I can provide you some(maybe helpful) information about this bug:
1.Tapping first "A" letter in Quick-jump brings first contact with "First Name" field starts with "A".
2.Tapping on second "A" letter in Quick-jump - brings contact with empty "First name" field, but "Company name" starts with "A".
3.Tapping on third "A" letter in Quick-jump - brings contact with first name starts with "A", but this contact has the Name prefix "Dr"
4.Tapping on first "D" letter in Quick-jump - brings contact with first name starts with "A", but has prefix Dr (Dr Alex Pen).
5.Tapping on second "D" letter in Quick-jump - brings contact with first name starts with "A", but has prefix Dr (Dr Alona Pent).
6.Tapping on third "D" letter in Quick-jump - brings contact with first name starts with "D" (Dina).
7.Tapping on forth "D" letter in Quick-jump - brings contact with first name starts with "L" (Leah). but has prefix Dr (Dr Leah).
8.Tapping on fifth "D" letter in Quick-jump - brings contact with first name starts with "O" (Onore). but has prefix Dr (Dr Leah).

Hope it can help.

Thanks a lot for your support!
