Notifications Widget

Posted on 2009-12-13 14:23 UTC by Rami Zalloum. Status: Under consideration, Categories: Desktop.

Currently (Missed calles / New SMS / New IM / New eMail) notifications don't appear on your desktop, you have to click on the Active Tasts button to see these notifications.


It would be great to have a widget that you can add to one or more of your desktops that aggregates your notifications in a compact way such that you can notice your notifications easily

Enabling fast access to 2nd screen of Apps in Apps Menu

Posted on 2009-12-15 13:39 UTC by Philip Dean. Status: Under consideration, Categories: Desktop, User Experience.

Currently, to get to Apps on the 2nd screen of the Application Menu, you first need to press the Application Menu icon on the top left of your desktop and then hit the "More" icon on the bottom right of the first screen in the Apps Menu.


It might only be two clicks, but it seems hugely unnecessary to have to click in one corner of the screen and then move to click in the other corner of the screen to bring up the list of apps you have installed.

"Odd" Recurrences for calendar application

Posted on 2009-12-07 11:06 UTC by Ralph Angenendt. Status: Under consideration, Categories: Desktop.

Many people have appointments which aren't on a weekly or monthly "repeat order", but occur on some more "odd" dates like "every second wednesday" (bi-weekly), "every second month" (bi-monthly) or even on "every second monday of the month". At the moment the calendar app only supports daily, weekly, monthly and yearly recurrences of events, which isn't advanced enough for most people's scheduling. This brainstorm tries to address bugs 6505, 5954 and 5955.


The calendar on the N900 is a really neat  app, but lets make it shine!

Email (Modest): Keep Sent and Drafts on IMAP server

Posted on 2009-05-07 15:54 UTC by Quim Gil. Status: Under consideration, milestone: Harmattan, Categories: Desktop, Internet & Networking.

(Originally posted at

Modest stores sent email and draft emails locally. Evolution, for instance, allows you to choose folders on your IMAP account, in the preferences.

I use IMAP specifically so I can use any client on any machine and see all of my mails. I don't want any client storing things locally, except as a cache. Thus, I'd like to keep my Sent and Drafts folders on my IMAP server.
