At the moment, the alarm clock icon on lock screen is visible, when there is any enabled alarm independent which days of week this alarm is active/inactive.

I'm in the following situation. A have created two alarms. One is active from Monday till Friday and the other one only on Saturday and Sunday. But I do not use the second one on every weekend. So, when I go to bed on Friday evening, the alarm clock icon on lock screen doesn't tell me, whether the alarm clock is ringing on Saturday morning or not, since the alarm for Monday till Friday is still enabled.

My suggestion is, that the alarm clock icon on lock screen should only be visible, if there is an enabled alarm, which will ring within the next 24 hours.

sounds plausible, or maybe have color indicators or slightly different icon, e.g. filled bell vs. border-only bell

@Tim Drub Good point! Somebody could have a single alarm which is only active on one day of week. With different icons it would be possible at any time to see if the alarm is enabled. I will include this in the question and in an possible answer.

I want something similar as on the Android clock, namely that when an alarm is active the alarm icon is shown + the time of the next alarm, e.g. in your case on Friday evening, the lock screen would show an alarm icon and below it somthing like "mon 7:00", to indicate time when the next alarm will go off.

@steabert Sounds interesting... I don't know, if there is enough space around the alarm clock icon in Sailfish OS. Can you please post a screenshot or a link to a screenshot to show how it looks in Android?

@szobi here is a screenshot: http://cdn.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/nexusae0_Chronus3.png as you can see the time of the next alarm is indicated
