I have 7000+ contacts synched to my Apple iCloud account. I can see them with the contact app when I search for some of them via spotlight, as shown in the next image:

But in Dashboard Contact widget, it cannot find any matches with my name or number that I searched for.

What could be the reason the problem?


Before doing this save your current work.

Open System Preferences, then go to Security & Privacy section. In Privacy tab select Contacts from the list left side. In the right panel check Dashboard in the list. By selecting the Quit Now button your Dashboard will quit and it might cause logging out and closing your applications. Login again and in Dashboard remove and add the Contact widget again.

  • Are you sure about doing this workflow right? I can reproduce your problem with unchecking Dashboard in Privacy and then fix it with this solution. – Hamid Rohani Jan 24 '17 at 22:22
