Group-Office 6.4 released

We're proud to announce Group-Office 6.4. In this release we've completely redesigned the address book, custom fields system settings and more!

Address book

The address book was completely redesigned with a modern look and feel. It's easier to use and integrates in other modules.

Custom filters

The address book is the first module to use the new custom filters feature. You can create reusable filters with your own conditions. They also work great in combination with custom fields.

For example you can create filters based on education:

Here's a screenshot of how you can edit the conditions:

Advanced query syntax

With the new advanced query syntax you can target very specific contacts in your searches. https://groupoffice.readthedocs.io/en/latest/using/address-book.html#advanced-search-syntax

Newsletters

The newsletters module is an easy tool to manage address lists and send out newsletters. Using powerful templates you can personalise your messages.

It's built in a way it can also use different modules as source for newsletters. This way it can integrate in a custom module too.
