Display orgs, then individual members on member list?

We have two membership levels -- organizations and individuals. Organizations need to be listed by organization (the person signing up for the organization is secondary and usually just a contact person). Individuals need to be listed by their name, since they are signing up for themselves.

Is there a way to customize how the membership list is displayed, based upon which membership level they signup for?

I know I can sort by membership level, but this doesn't really help the display problem. The "Search results layout" applies to the entire membership list, and can't change based upon what type of membership is being displayed. So I can either list everyone by their name first (which is wrong for the organization), or I can list everyone by their organization first (which is wrong for the individuals).

If this is not do-able today, then please, please put it in a future release. There should be a different "Search results layout" set of boxes for each membership level (if a person needs the functionality).

Thanks!
John

        Also, assuming we have 3 different organization levels (Gold, Silver, Bronze), we could sort in the organization section by these different membership levels (Gold orgs first, then Silver orgs, then bronze).

        There should probably be some sort of separator between each of these sections and membership levels too.

        Right now, I can display by membership level, which is part of what I need. But there's no separator differentiating when one membership level is done and then it's displaying the next level. This would be helpful for folks to understand the different groups, too.

        Thanks!

        Yes, I would like a master membership list.

        On this list, it would have, in this example, two different sections -- one for organizational members, the second for individual members (using membership levels as the filter). All organization members would be listed first, then individual members. Assume there's a sort option as well for each section (in this case, organizations would be sorted by organization name, individuals would be sorted by individual's name). Here's a rough layout example:

        Organization Members

        ================

        Organization Name Location Some other column

        Individual Members

        ==============

        Person's Name Location Some other column

        Is that enough information? Thank you!

        John, so do you want Organization members and individual members to show on one member directory in some specific order? I am not sure if I understand your requirement completely, I would appreciate if you could provide more details.

        "Organizations need to be listed by organization (the person signing up for the organization is secondary and usually just a contact person)."
        - Right now all records are based on a personal record. We are planning to have organization records sometime down the road.
