You can sort your contacts by First Name, Last Name, Last Contacted by Team, Creation Date, and much more. With the "Sort by" option, you can sort your contact list by any generic or custom data field.

To do this, just visit your Contacts tab and click the drop-down arrow next to "Sort By". The list will display in the order you selected.

You can sort from any of these Categories:

All Contacts
Marked Important
Recently Added
Recently Contacted
Saved Segments

Once you select a list, you may sort by following the steps below:  

1. In the Contacts tab, select one of the filters from the default lists or custom lists (as indicated above) and then choose a category to sort by. 

2. Select the up or down arrow to sort top-to-bottom or vice-versa.

Most used "Sort by" options:

First Name

Last Name

Last Contacted By Team

Last Contacted By Me

Creation Date


Any Custom Field
