The Cozy team has been working on it for the past few months, and the new Contacts app is now ready for you to enjoy! In order for this to happen, we need to install it on your Cozy: just log in, click on
Status (bottom of the Home page) then
Update Stack and applications. Wait a short while and you’re good to go!
I have asked my colleague Luc, our Product Designer, to describe what he wanted to achieve with the news design. Here is his answer: “Lighter, simpler despite added features, making it easier to use for the daily tasks.”
Multiple selections and merging contacts
When we start using this new version, there is one feature that really pops out: the ability to select several contacts at once to do bulk action such as merging.
Once we’ve selected several contact by clicking on their respective check boxes, it’s possible to merge, export or delete them.
By clicking on the “Merge” button, we just have to pick which name is going to be kept for the contact, et voila, all the cards are merged into one… There is also a “Find duplicates” button that looks for the duplicates in order to merge them quickly and easily. Finally, the ability to use tags has been improved in order to filter contacts more efficiently. Managing your address books is now easier than ever!
We all hope that you’ll enjoy the improvements brought by this new version of the Contacts app and we’re waiting for your feedback in the forum https://forum.cozy.io/
Talk to you soon!
