After a month using Jolla, I was surprised to discover a feature which enables user to add shortcuts or favourites to first page of the settings menu. To help users find this feature, there could be a small text between connections toggles and brightness slider that informs from this feature. If user then decide to add shortcuts, the text would disappear, as user is obviously no more unaware of the feature. The same kind of advicing can be found from Maps applications first page, which says "Ahoy. Flick left to Explore the map!" written with the basic colour of the current ambience.

Agreed, the customization option in settings is quite well hidden (requires long press on selection, same goes for deleting favourites from settings like Wifi or Bluetooth for example). This should be more visible to all users.

it is also mentioned in Jolla user guideas "treasure" => Settings => System setting.

Even the user manual is at some points bit weak, there are also valid information for the basic usage of the phone.

This question is related: https://together.jolla.com/question/25434/indication-to-hint-that-a-context-menu-is-available/. Because if you could see in the setting pages that something has an "Add to Favourites" thing in the context menu, you would discover it.
