This morning, my Jolla woke me up at 6:29, just as intended. Then, since I had some spare time, I decided to make another alarm to wake me at 6:49, and continued sleeping. This alarm, however, didn't ring at all and I woke up at 7:05, five minutes late for my scheduled morning swim. The difference between these two is that the 6:29 alarm is set to ring on tuesdays and thursdays, the later one had no days set. Shouldn't the default behaviour, eg. when no days are selected, be to ring the next time the specified time occurs, and when it's stopped, it should disable itself? I'm pretty sure it worked this way until the latest update ( It's quite stupid to be able to specify an alarm that never rings either way. Hoping for a fix to this minor thing, until then I'll just make my random alarms ring every day and disable them manually when I wake up.

i have never set a day for my alarm, but it works anyway.. have you activated the alarm after you set it? when set, the alarm time has the same color as the clock i the alarm app. when unset, the numbers are white.

Yes, the alarm was enabled, I forgot to mention that. It also has the light-dot thing next to the alarm name showing that it is enabled.

Tried myself and set a new alarm without any days set. The alarm started as expected.

Having no days set makes the alarm go off. This behaviour is confusing as setting all the days and setting none of the days does the same thing. Obviously, setting none of the days would be a daft thing to do, but the software should do something different, perhaps making it clear it is a daily alarm if no days are set.

The other confusing thing (for my mum who owns the phone) is whether the alarm is on or off, as when the dot is off the time actually appears bright, which is counter intuitive.
