Periodically we like to highlight some of our new and changed features so that you can learn more about what Gist can do for you. In the most current release of Gist, here are some new features we’d like to share with you!
Tags Help You Build and Use Your Contact Lists
Is someone you know a “friend,” “family,” or “work” contact? Do they like to play “baseball” or have a preference for “fine wine”? Did you meet them in “NYC” or at a “conference”? Are they a “customer,” “partner,” or “influencer”?
Use tags in Gist for Chrome, Gist for Firefox, and Gist for Outlook to make it easier to find and group contacts, and to know how you’re connected to someone. We’ve made it easy for you by auto-tagging if the person came from Outlook, Chrome, or another account.
Really fast contact search
Our newest Gist release brings the power of contact search to Gist for Chrome, Gist for Firefox and Gist for Outlook and puts all of your contacts together in one place. It’s fast! You can search for first name, last name, or search for all of the contacts having a particular tag. We’ve also added handy preview pictures so you can see which face you’re looking for in your search.
Easier to Sign in to Gist Support
When you go to http://support.gist.com, if you’re already logged into Gist, you’ll be able to enter and review support requests without having to create a separate account at our support site.

Improvements to Contact Page and Company Layout
You told us the contact page needed to be easier to read, and we heard you! We moved the controls that turn Gist “widgets” on and off higher on the page so that they’re easier to find. You can customize your Gist experience by arranging these widgets or hiding the ones you don’t need.
Gist widgets include Notes – which allows you store a note and retrieve it later; Tags – allowing you to group a contact into a list; Shared Contacts – showing you all of the people who’ve been on an email thread or a meeting; Suggested Profile Information – which shows you how Gist finds contact information for you; Correspondence – showing you the last time you emailed a contact; and Google Search – giving you a custom search you can use for a contact.
On Gist company detail pages, we also include a People List of your contacts at a company, a Company Profile – containing information from Crunchbase; and a Company Stock Chart – containing information from Wikinvest.
