"Display as" empty in Thunderbird

Post by madzielak » Mon Sep 19, 2011 9:18 am

Hello.
I have a issue after synchronizing Android phone with Thunderbirds.
After synchronization all contacts, that were added from the phone have empty field, Display as. This makes address book content look very inconvinient. Would be nice to be changed in some release.


BR,
Krzysztof

Hello Krzysztof,

By now "Display as" field is not synchronized, but it will be seen if it will be possible to improve this.
As a workaround, if you have empty display names in Thunderbird, you may try to change the menu "Address book/View/Display name as..." and choose "Last name, First name" for instance. That would avoid empty names in the contact list.

BirdieSync 2.3.7.0 hast just been released and should allow you to synchronize "Display name" field. You can configure how this field must be synchronized in BirdieSync options (Thunderbird menu "Tools/BirdieSync/Options...", Contact panel, Miscellaneous tab).
