Create GROUP from Address.

Post by pollensa1946 » Sat Jul 19, 2014 10:57 am

In the Toolbox/Address feature you can select a specific category, CITY, COUNTY, STREET etc. A long press on a category name, CITY for example, produces a menu. It would be good if added to that menu was the ability to create a new GROUP of the contacts that appear in that category. I know that you can open the category to show the list of contacts, then multi-select, then "Set Group for Contacts", but this only allows you to add those contacts to a pre-existing group.
The present arrangement requires the steps...
1) Open Group display
2) Options
3) Add Group
4) Select Account
5) Edit Group detail
6) Save
7) Toolbox
8) Address
9) Set Category
10) Open Category
11) Options
12) Multi-Select
13) Options
14) Select All
15) Options
16) Set Group
17) Scroll to Group name (set in step (5) above) and tick
18) OK

My suggestion...
1) Toolbox
2) Address
3) Set Category
4) Long Press Category
5) Create Group
6) Select Account
7) Edit Group detail
8) Save (all Contacts in the Address Category are added to the Group in the background)

OK, did not see "Create New Group" way at the bottom of Groups display. To be honest that is not the best place to put it. I would expect for consistency that the "Create New Group" would be actioned by a +icon at the top of the page, as is the case in the normal Contacts display, or it would be the first entry on the list, as it is in the Group display Options list. Plus why have it as an icon on Contacts display but in a list in Groups display? Inconsistent and confusing.
Although good compromise solution to my feature request. Thanks.

"Create new Group" is now at the top of the list, works fine. Thanks.
