Hello
Regular contacts contacts can be displayed in Favorites TAB.

Yes, but that display does not have all the features of the full Frequents display accessible from a home screen shortcut.

Sorry I did not understand. You mean not show all Frequents contacts. Now you can display a contact group in the TAB. If you just want to show Frequents contacts. You can hold down Frequents group, then select Add to TAB.

I just realised the Frequents display, accessed from a Home screen shortcut, operates differently from the History display.
In History you can filter the display by Group. So if you want to see ONLY the History for contacts in Group X then you select the top left icon then Group X. This is the correct way of operation in my opinion.
However, in Frequents selecting a Group simply shows ALL the contacts in that Group. It does not filter the contents of the Frequents display. This should be changed to conform to that of the History display. The different operation of the two displays does not make sense.
If this change were made then having the Frequents display on a TAB makes sense. I could then hit the Frequents TAB and then filter to see only those contacts that are in Frequents AND are in Group X.

Hello
You mean you need to filter the Frequents contacts by groups.
You can select Frequents and other groups in filtration mode to do this.

OK I figured out how to use the Filter on the Frequents and History displays and the problem that causes confusion is that the operation is not the same on both displays, despite both showing essentially the same information.
Example....
1) Go into History, select Groups (icon on top left), select Group X, display is correct. It shows only the History for those members who are in Group X. Select Group X again (and again and again) and display remains correct.
2) Go into the Frequents display and carry out the selections in (1). You get a display of ALL the members of Group X, regardless of whether they appear in Frequents. In fact I have not yet figured out how to filter for members of Group X who appear in Frequents.
The two displays operate differently, which is not correct.

PS... "You can hold down Frequents group, then select Add to TAB." I now have Frequents on my Tab Bar, thanks for pointing that out. Great work.

I'm sorry I did not understand all.
In fact I have not yet figured out how to filter for members of Group X who appear in Frequents
In the Contacts tab, open the sidebar. Enter the filter pattern. While selecting "Group X" and Auto Group "Freuqently contacted"

Frequents is "Freuqently contacted" right?

I have two shortcuts on my Home Screen... the Call History and Frequently Contacted. Both display very similar information yet the filter on each operates in a completely different way. This in my opinion is a problem.

Call History. Display the Sidebar and then select Group X, the display then shows those members of Group X who ALSO appear in Call History.

Frequently Contacted. The filter on Sidebar is completely different and causes confusion since the information on the display is very similar to Call History.

The Filter operation should be the same for both.

Now I understand what you mean. I would consider it.
Frequently Contacted now is a filter in the sidebar, and then you open the sidebar to switch to the other group, the results obtained and Frequently Contacted have no relationship.

Thanks, exactly the point I was making. In our small company DWP-Pro is the first choice Contacts Manager. Some users have 1000+ contacts across 50+ companies they communicate with. They often want to analyze..."what contacts have I called frequently in Company (Group) X ?" If the sidebar on Frequently Called operated the same way as in Call History then this would be very simple.

Thanks, I will consider how to implement it. Now you can use the filtering mode, then select Frequently Contacted, and then select other groups.
