full page contact list
I hate the contact list now being shown on the right side and much prefer the previous full page contact list. Please bring back the full page list or at provide an option to select this version. Also, some of my contacts seem to have "mysteriously" disappeared.

I completely agree with the original poster. I am an avid user of the contacts feature and it is almost impossible to use the contacts feature now. As a shortcut, I was using this link to get around this implosion of the contacts feature: https://mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?action=contacts
But now it doesn't work and if I can locate a contact, when I click on it, I see another yahoo mail page and NO details on the contact.
This new contact feature is completely broken.
If you look at the calendar icon and click on it, a new page opens to display the calendar. The contact icon should do the same thing.
This new contact redo is horrible!!!!

Horrible new contact format. I'm ready to quit all emailing or using Yahoo. I do contact work all the time. Horrible horrible new format! Yes, I am repeating myself!!!!

OMG! what a HORRIBLE 'enhancement'! Do you not have any people on staff with usability skills? This new contacts version is totally user unfriendly. Not only that, it is broken - does not show all contact fields, and the integration with distribution lists is totally f**ked up. I use lists a lot and this new version is impossible with work with! If you can't fix, then at least give users the ability to revert back to the full screen edit mode, while you work on a fix!

I agree with all these comments. The new contacts are frustratingly difficult to use. One person with multiple entries: one for email, one for street address, one for phone, one for second phone, one for second email......etc. You get the point. The old email was much more logical and user friendly. Easy to manage contacts, make changes, sort into groups and see all emails to a particular person. Bring back the old email contacts list and stop making changes just because you can. These are not improvements, they are aggravations. If you have been gathering feedback since July 19,2019, you have enough to realize that the new contacts arrangement is NOT working. Bring back the old contacts list.
I wholeheartedly agree with everyone else in this comment thread.
I also hate this new contact list. Duplicates, triplets, quads all for the same person. I tried to clean up this horrible contact list and as soon as I deleted one of the four for the same person all four all of them then disappeared! How do I get the one back

I HATE the new contact list. Can not even figure out how to edit and add contacts and I can't see the information as easily. Please bring back the old style.
Seems this latest update to contacts has broken. First it is hard to use as compared to the previous layout. Worse, it doesn't show all of your contacts! Seems that if you have more than a certain number of contacts with the same first name, it is limited. Thankfully, the contacts are still present on my phone.
Please fix! A contacts list that doesn't show all of your contacts is pretty useless. Does anybody test this code before it is released?

I can no longer manage my contact list and I need to work on it today! Please change it back!
I cannot figure out by looking at a contact -- over on the right hand list -- which lists they are on. Please go back to the full page contact list with all of the information included and the emails they have sent.
Annette Deberville commented
Need to fix that ASAP!!!!! Please let us know how soon this can be fixed. If you can not fix it you should let us know so people can just leave yahoo and go to g mail.
Chad Trey commented
I can't agree more! The new Contact List relegated ti a sidebar margin is miserable! Adding a contact is next to impossible... there is nothing better about the layout...
Return to the full-page tab for Contacts, PLEASE.
Phil Trickett commented
Improve for me IS A LIE.
I CANNOT MANAGE CONTACTS AND MY LISTS. WHEN I SELECT "RETURN TO PREVIOUS VERSION" I GET THE VERY FIRST YAHOO MAIL SYSTEM NOT THE PREVIOUS THIS CHANGE REPLACED. Does anybody know what they're doing to me?
Doses anybody care.....?
Pat Corirossi commented
It's time for everyone to switch to Gmail or some other email that has a better Contacts feature. The new one that Yahoo has implemented is not able to be used in the same way as the old one. Please bring back the older full-page version.
I wholeheartedly agree with everyone else in this comment thread. The change is ridiculous and not at all user-friendly. This may send me over to gmail...

When editing or working with contacts, it should be full page. With the new mail, viewing, editing, adding to a category, or doing just about anything with a narrow field on the right side of the page is horrible. You should be able to click on contacts and have the whole page be dedicated to working with categories, lists or editing individual contacts.
The NEW location of the contacts is essentially a good idea but for those of us with bad eyes it should be twice as wide or let us return to a full page to easier read the necessary information or to edit it.
