Make Contact Groups with Mac Contacts Address Book

Its Group function is simple. How to create a group on mac with this online contact manager? Click “All Contacts”, it will turn into blue, highlight the mouse curse on it, you will see a “Plus” sign and click it, it appears a “untitle group” for you to create and edit a new group.

I want to express my using experience and opinion on it.

  1. It has a feature that other contact management software may don’t have-Smart Groups. You can create a group based on criteria you specify. For example, you can create a group called “Berlin City” that includes any contacts live in Berlin. When you change the one’s address to another city, the Smart Group will automatically exclude that contact.
  2. It can merge and look for the duplicates, but can’t do more for screening conditions (like incomplete name, invalid character, unusual title, suffix, etc.).
  3. I don’t love its grouping method, not intuitive and direct. If I am fresh man, I don’t think I will understand how to grouping if without its introductions. Apart from this, it can’t support do the secondary grouping, if it can manage the group to be more refined and slimmed, it’s better.
  4. The handling is not easy-to-use. For example, I want to delete one group, I have to click the Mac top tool bar Menu > Edit > Delete Group. If I can make it at one click without leave the app’s interface, I think it is more time-saving.

  1. Google Contacts Manager can’t be the best contact manager. Its development platform is still in its infancy.
