    Default Import Contacts - Default View - Zimbra 8.0.3

    Hello, I need to import approximately 10,000 contacts from a csv file.

    This is a conversion, so a brand new zimbra account is setup.

    The problem is that the default zimbra view for address book contacts is "last name, first" and I can not find where I can change this default view.

    The client wants "Company, last name, first" as the default view.

    Remember, this is more than 10,000 address book contacts, so manually re-saving every contact is not acceptable.

    How can I change the address book default view to "Company, last name, first" before I import the 10,000 contact csv file?

    Hello powrrrplay, you can modify the attribute fileAs.

    Code:
     zmmailbox -z -m account@domain.com mcta Idcontact fileAs 6
    Of course, you have to loop across every account and every contact to find Idcontact.

    Edit: As you are importing from a CSV file, you can set fileAs attribute in this file and set 6 to each contact.!
