Lead and Contact sorting

Is there anyway to change how the leads or contacts are sorted?  Not just filtered.  I accidentally imported a list into both and am trying to clean up the ones that aren't supposed to be on one or the other.  The contact section is sorted A-Z  while the Leads are sorted Z-A.  I don't see a way to change that.  In contacts there is a way to sort by first or last name but doesn't have an option to change order.

  • Hi Casey!

    You can choose to view the Contacts added in the last 24 hours or you can also choose to see the Your Recent Imports; in order to view only the contacts you have recently imported into your account. You will see this option on the far right

  • @Nora, I think Casey's question involves actual sorting, not viewing imports.  For instance, I import a list of "Leads" as an example.  For whatever reason, it imported them with a sort of Z to A.  There is no way to "sort" them manually from A to Z, or by first name/last name. 

    In Contacts, you have a dropdown icon (wrench) that will allow "Display by" (First Name or Last Name), as well as "Sort by" (First Name or Last Name).

  • Thanks Jerry!

    Unfortunately, Leads doesn't offer the same options of sorting as Contacts does; however it is something that is coming. You can vote for it here.

    In the meantime Casey can view her recently imported list of Leads since she mentioned she had imported Leads and Contacts.
