    with that as a choice selector, if continue pushing find the second and so on.

    Hello ocalle,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you want the contact list to display when the first letter is input?

    It is possible to achieve your requirement by taking advantage of our "Auto Complete" widget. This will display the suggestions based while you type in the field. Please check the screenshot below:


    The auto complete widget works very well in mobile devices as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!
