Views

Easy Directory provides a set of system views, but also offers the flexibility for users to create their own views according to their specific needs.

Any new search configuration (e.g., when you filtered for a tag 'Directors') provides the option to save it directly into a new view.

Views can be selected in the view-dropdown on the lefthand side. Mark a view as default view by selecting the star-icon. This will be the default view once you open the Easy Directory app.

More detailed information about views and their configurations can be found under Views. The following part provides simply an introductory overview.

  • New search (Initiates a new search for contacts or filter contacts by tags)

Custom views

Configure your custom view according to your requirements.
