    Just got my M8 and need a way to search contacts by Organization as well as by name. Is this possible? If not, is there a Android program that will
    do a global search and search the Organization field in Contacts. I have approx. 2000 contacts and I can't possibly remember them by name. I can remember the Business/ Organization and need to search by that field.

    Go into your contacts, hit the menu button in the top right (three dot button), hit settings and then there's an option to select what to search by.

    If you add them into customized groups, then you will be able to search in each group individually. But it will take you a while to get it done, as you need to create the groups, then go through all your contacts one by one to add them in the corresponding group.

    When you search in contacts for a company or whatever you are looking for, after you adjust the settings, it will just pop up the names of the contacts with the company that is in the contact info. So if the persons name is Joe and his company you're looking for is united airlines, it'll just say Joe, not united airlines.

    If that makes sense. But it works.

    It's not working for me for some reason, even when I enable company in the search settings. Why?
