Please allow us to put contacts in alphabetical order as well
Thank you for the feedback. All contacts in Contacts tab are already in alphabetical order. The Chat tab is a chronological list based on activity. It can be sorted either by unread messages first or by last activity first.
Sorting contacts in Skype-list by name
Sorting chronologically without any options makes no sense at all. If you have 40/50 contacts who message you on most days then they are all over the place and difficult to find. It's fine for a mobile app when you may only have a few social contacts but this does not work for a desktop application. I have 80 contacts in a single list which constantly change position. Please add sorting options and also bring back custom contact groups which we lost from v7.
I think this has been said many time before but as usual the Skype team don't seem to listen.
Skype developers! You really need to lose this mobile app design mentality. It just doesn't work for desktops!
The older version sorted them in chat window … it also allowed the online contacts to be on top of the list; is this going to be reinstated/fixed in some future update?
Allow to sort by plain names. All my contacts manually renamed with strict prefixes.
Something like [WRK] John Dow for coworkers or
[EXWRK] John Smith for Ex Coworkers or
[WOW] Alex Cool for my World of Warcraft reallife friends.
I need to keep my contacts grupped by this prefixes. So this means just a simple alphabetical sorting and I really don't understand why this simplest sorting orders doesn't realised?
Petr, you are correct that they are in alphabetical order. However, they are in alphabetical order by first name. We should be able to organize by last name as well.
You used to alphabetize favorite contacts. Can you please bring that option back?
I want to associate my phone numbers with the names of the people I am calling.
YES! And please allow us to make "Contacts" the default view in the navigation panel in left. I literally have to switch back to it every time after making a call!
And give us a dedicated "FAVORITES" option in left. No I don't want Suggestions, or if I did, I'd want them at the bottom. I use this thing for daily work. Please!
