  • Unfortunately no.   And there is no URI Scheme for launching the people settings either.  You would have to implement your own settings page in your application with similar options.

  • Thanks for the answer. 

    About "sorted list by" - when we get contacts via ContactManager we have them sorted by this setting, but Displayname is always Firstname + Lastname :(

  • Understood. I will look into that and open a bug.
