sort order of contact

Post by SabineSW » Tue Jun 04, 2013 7:50 pm

Hello!

The sort order is weird when there is no name (see example).
I have many adresses with neither first nor last name (since my palm days). They have just an Organisation.

Yes, I know, I can go to organisations. But then I have all organisations, not just for the selected group.
I want to have all the adresses in one alphabet (companies and persons).

Hello,

I cannot find a sort order that suites me.

Sort order "default - alternate" sorts the same way as "system default":
- first name instead of last name (not good)
- the organizations are in the same alphabet (good)

Sort order "lastname" sorts weird (as in my first posting)

Sort order "lastname - alternate" sorts the organizations without names at the end (under *).

I would prefer the organizations without names in the same alphabet with the other adresses (as with the Samsung preinstalled app "Kontakte").
Regards,

Sabine

Hello
Strange, I just tested default - alternate. It works fine on my phone.
You can do a screen capture using the default - alternate do?
Maybe add a small amount of contacts in a group to do the testing easier.
Global settings -> Show contact as
You change this setting yet?

Yes, I tried

I did two screenshots, both with "Sortierreihefolge: default alternate".
One with "Global settings -> Show contact as": Lastname first (the sorting is weird)
the other with "Global settings -> Show contact as": System Standard (the sorting is according to first name).
