Google Contacts - how to see which contacts aren't in a group?

In Google Contacts, I've had Groups set up which look like this: All Contacts.. Family.. School.. Work.. etc.

Each contact I have is assigned to All Contacts. In addition, it is assigned to at least one more Group.

Sometimes when I add contacts, I forgot to bucket them in the respective groups, so I was wondering is there anyway I could do a search for contact that belongs toAll Contact-group, but does not belong to any other group ?

@AlEverett shouldn't there be a way not to do this manually ? –  Pacerier Oct 9 '11 at 12:35
    
Perhaps, but that's a question better asked of the Google developers. –  Al E. Oct 9 '11 at 16:28

Custom way :

In Contacts, click Export and save your contacts to as "Outlook CSV" formatted file on your computer.

Open that file, which by default is named contacts.csv, in a spreadsheet. There is a column called Group Membership that contains the groups associated with each contact.

It's easy to filter those in a spreadsheet to find contacts without groups. Hope this helps you out.

@AlEverett oh yes excel can read outlook csv but not google csv. –  Pacerier Oct 11 '11 at 14:23

CSV is just a text file with fields separated by commas. You may have to tweak the import settings a bit but that's not unusual. –  Al E. Oct 11 '11 at 15:55
