Set default cloumns and column widths in new Insightly search results

 When doing a search in the new Insightly the results are displayed but are unreadable because there are so many columns crammed into such a small place.

 

While it is possible to adjust the column widths, it resets back to the default on each search so I need to constantly readjust the column widths.

Can a master setting be implemented that will allow a user to edit the way default search results are displayed to avoid this? If so it would also be handy to be able to choose which columns are included in the search results.

  • Agreed. In a Custom List view for Tasks, we now have to reset the columns every time we view the list so that we can see the full titles of things.  There are also 2 columns (Task name, Due Date) that are fixed in the view, and five untitled columns on the right that can't be removed.  This really diminishes the value of having a 'custom' view if you can only use part of the report AND have to resize it every time you go in. Please add more control for the user to design the view, and keep custom widths as the user sets them.

  • yes, yes, a thousand times yes. Every time I do anything with this new set up in Insightly, I have to reset the columns. NOT EFFICIENT OR USER FRIENDLY. It is a WASTE OF TIME.   Please fix this asap!!

  • Hey guys,

    Thank you for giving us this feedback. Insightly's product team uses these threads to find out what parts of our system need to be looked at.

  • I'm getting concerned that simple contact management items are not being easily fixed.  The size of the column really should be a simple adjustment that we can save so we can view the data the way we want to see it.  Also I agree that all the column should be able to be removed or added and in the order the user would like.

    Don't understand why in the task menu when I start a new task that on that screen I cannot link it to a contact or an organization istead of having to save it and the go back into the task and link it.

  • New to 'Un'sightly. It is amazing that during the last 4 weeks of use we are encountering nothing but ridiculously simple bugs and oversights which make using the platform a nightmare. Column width / ability to delete is a huge usability issue! Please fix it - don't add it to your roadmap or debate it. Or give me access and I'll have out dev. fix for it you. There are threads on here 2 years old asking for basic fixes. And instead, you're rolling out mostly useless integrations for popular programs. The reasons they are popular is because they solved basic usability issues.

  • Hello All,

    This is also an issue for us and I suspect most people who use the system.

    I have just queried in a support message the concept of having to vote up on what is a fairly obvious UI bug, NOT a new feature request (enhancement). Please have a think about the way you define bugs and enhancements and deal with each type of issue separately.

    If you do already do this, then thats great, let customers know that you acknowledge what they are saying and people will have confidence in the support process. I currently feel that support = "make sure you vote for this feature, here is a link to unhelpful guide"

    Thanks and sorry to be a pain.

    Luke

  • I know you say to use these forums for things to be fixed, but I feel that is a cop out. It seems rare that simple fixes are not done and the system is just so unfriendly.

  • I totally agree with this request. For us the standard lists are not usable. If we could adjust which columns are shown and set their column widths, we could avoid all of the custom lists. And the column widths need to be able to be set in the custom lists also.
