    The usability of the webclient search function is very limited because:
    - One line per contact and number without showing the type of number.
    - Missing company name.

    As an example I have created two contacts:
    Contact 1:
    FirstName: John
    LastName: Doe
    Company: ACME A

    Contact 2:
    FirstName: John
    LastName: Doe
    Company: ACME B

    As you can see, the example results in a list of 4 identical lines with different numbers.
    Impossible to tell if this is one contact with 4 numbers, 4 contacts with 1 number each
    or any combination.

    Most of the problems could be solved by either
    - Add company name and number type to the entries or
    - Show address objects (like contact search) with company-name

    For companys with multiple equally named employees, please add the following fields
    This applies to both contacts and extensions:
    - Departement
    - Short/Nickname

    To avoid compatibility issues, add an option to select the displayed contact fields or some
    predefined schemes.
