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 ?

  • Perhaps, but that's a question better asked of the Google developers.

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.

  • what do you mean by open "in a spreadsheet" ? excel can't read the file..

    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.
