How do I remove contacts from list view

Hi, I'm new to Act and trying to find my way around. Glad I found this forum. My question is, I have approximately 2,000 contacts in the database right now and moved about 300 of them into a newly created group and was about to start creating more groups to move the other contacts into. I thought that by moving them to a group they would no longer show up in the Contacts List View but apparently I am wrong. After moving the contacts I selected Omit Contacts and they appeared to be gone from the main List View. However, when I shut the program down and restarted, they were there again. I really don't want to see 2,000 contacts when I go to a list view, is there any way to do this?

 

Thank you

No. All contact remain in the contact table. When creating groups you are attaching the contact to the group, not removing it from the contact table.

Keep in mind that the Contact List view is driven by what the current lookup is...

Re: How do I remove contacts from list view

Thanks for the replies. My concern is that I have quite a few contacts that just dont have a logical group to associate them so it they sort of get lost in the mix if I do a full list view. Something I'll get used to I guess.
