We all have ideas on what improvements we’d like for Sailfish. I thought it would be useful to have a list in one location that allowed fellow Sailors could vote on individual improvements and also add their own suggestions. This way our friendly developers at Jolla could get a feel for what features Sailors think would make Sailfish a better OS.

Some of the suggestions I have included are probably already in the pipeline. Some may be covered by patches but I think are better included in the base OS.

I have included each suggestion as an answer which can be voted on. If you want to add a suggestion, please add your own answer for others to vote on.

These are in no particular order they’re just as I thought of them and grouped with similar features.

Edit: I didn't realise how many pages this would be :)

Don't forget to look at all the pages, there's 22 suggestions or answers to start with.

Why not use the already existing topic? https://together.jolla.com/question/27207/wiki-which-features-do-you-want-next/

@AlanBreen when you do a survey, please make everything a wiki! change all your answers!

@AlanBreen You're duplicating TJC within TJC. Why on earth would you collect ideas for improvements as answers to to this pseudo-question (and thereby repeating the same stuff all over) when the way to use TJC is to put each of them as a separate question (maybe with the tag "idea") and let people vote for these questions.

sorry to say but since.the.roadmap is not maintained or.published since years a pretty useless effort

and correct: a filter for idea does the same, is easier to find ...

and according to the answers it mixes up missing xperia features, general ideas ...

i think it is a bad idea.

It may not be the correct way to handle such a polling/survey over a question, but close to 1100 views in 12 hours reveals how much consideration such a thread has for the community. If the original topic hasn't been fully updated for more than 2.5 years, then it's probably not worth much either. Rules, structure and form are certainly very important, but the content is IMO even more important, isn't it? I think the SFOS product manager should take a closer look at this subject...

Independent volume adjustments for Ring Tone and other alerts like SMS, email etc, or have an alert tone that’s not so loud.

this would be good in the form of a submenu in the sound section of settings

Integrated To Do List into Calendar app. In fact I like the way it was done in Symbian Belle where you had the choice of Meeting/Anniversary/To Do

Isn't there a patch around - I thought I've seen one a while ago...

@elastic Yes there is. It's called "Go to specific date in calendar"

Improve responsiveness of the email client, it is very laggy opening and displaying emails.

Not just laggy it freezes and crashes my phone.

DarkTuring ( 2018-01-03 03:05:41 +0300 )edit

I think that behaviour is linked with the web-engine, see the issue with web browser

It's there on my Jolla 1, or am I missing smth?

I think there are problems on Sailfish X, on other devices it should work.

What do you mean concretely? There is a WIFI sharing service already implemented within SFOS…

JMLatJolla ( 2018-01-02 14:48:18 +0300 )edit

Yes, I should have been more specific. I was referring to Sailfish X specifically in this case. While the option is displayed in the menu it doesn't work on Sailfish X

AlanBreen ( 2018-01-03 08:08:13 +0300 )edit

Or it works on X but requires command line use to turn on and off.

Big, big room for improvements in this area!

Using the camera sometimes crashes my phone when called for in Android or SFOS apps.
