How Do I Search?

Quick Search

FollowFox makes finding a specific contact easy. Use the Search Box to quickly locate one or more contacts based on the Name of the contact.

After searching, click on a name in the resulting list to jump immediately to that contact's profile. FollowFox will let you search on either a full or partial name. Here are some examples:

You Enter:FollowFox Responds With:
  G George Bluth
Gene Parmesan
GOB Bluth
Warden Gentiles
  M F Maeby Fünke
Mr. F
Mrs. Featherbottom
  Holt Steve Holt

 

If your contact isn't found (that is, it doesn't exist) Quick Search will display Add Contact button   Add Contact at the bottom of the search dropdown.

Advanced Search (Pro Users)

FollowFox Pro provides a more in-depth function via its Advanced Search. To access it, go to the Contacts List list page and tap/click the Advanced Search button   Advanced Search (if using a desktop) or select   Advanced Search from the context menu ( ) if you're using a phone.

The resulting Search Contacts page will display all of the fields in your FollowFox database, including any custom fields you may have created. Enter information into one or fields to find any contacts that match all of those criteria.

  • Is a team member - yes

  • City - Phoenix
