Reminders stealing focus

Postby bitman » Wed Sep 12, 2007 1:21 am

I'm extremely happy with Barca. I can not see why someone would use Outlook except for familiarity. I think the search features are outstanding and the program is fast even for heavy users like me.

There are however still a few annoyances with the calander:

1. How do I set the reminder to be set automatically when entering a new appointment (default is not set)

2. How do I stop a reminder poping up and stealing keyboard focus - pretty annoying when your typing into word, then suddenly you typing into a reminder.

3. Can the reminder be made to popup like an MSmessenger contact coming online or like a ballon tip in the system tray?

Thanks!

Calendar/task manager

Postby pairofhearts » Wed Sep 12, 2007 3:07 am

I use the task manager for all appointments which has a popup that can be set for individual tasks/appointments. I utilize the calendar for Birthdays/anniversaries etc, and have Barca open to the "Today" screen. This in turn will display your daily appointment's as well as Birthdays entered. I use a week in advance as a reminder for calendar entries. This works well for me. Trust this will be of some help.
.........and make yourself a Great Day! Cheers, Lyle

There's no default which can be set. :?
Something to include in the next upgrade.

I should verify that, since I haven't experienced it yet.

Not at present, although I like the suggestion. :)

Better send your requests to Support, so they can take it into account for the next upgrade. :wink:

I can verify that, it happens often enough to be a real nuisance.

Priority Raise

Postby bitman » Mon Sep 17, 2007 2:50 am

I think the priority on a fix for this should be pretty high as it's pretty annoying.

In addition to the reminder window stealing focus, if you minimise it instead of closing it, it keeps popping up and stealing focus every so often.

Number 1 fix?

Postby bitman » Fri Oct 05, 2007 2:57 am

This is really p'ing me off now. Being a heavy user with occasionally half a dozen reminders to be looked at, and emails to respond to, make this problem number 1 on my most annoying list.

Problem: Reminders pop up with no warning at intervals and steal focus from whatever you are typing. So if your typing a reply to an email, a reminder of the reminders may pop up and you end up typing into that box and loosing what you have typed, along with overtyping the reminder. Very dangerous and annoying on a regular basis.

Can you email support if you want this fixed like me - I'll send them an email too.
