I merged a number of contacts from my N900 to my Jolla and found some shortcoming of the people application in the process.

There is no field for the profession, and there was also no warning, the information was just ignored without any warning.

There was a similar problem with a mobile phone number marked as "work", the number was just mapped to "Mobile Phone". For me it is very important to know whether a mobile phone is someones personal or work phone (For example, I can't give out a personal phone number to a third party), the same is true for fixed lines. Please allow a distinction between work and personal numbers for mobile and fixed line numbers.

I'd appreciate if the layout was a bit more condensed. So, if we ever get a 'notes' field, let's have it visible without scrolling.

additional fields id like to see: 1. hours/days for business import, 2. correctly share phone email categories and labels between Android Apps and Sailfish People Apps, Three phone numbers HOME, WORK, MOBILE all become Home in android for example, 3. Deep linking between locations, website information and calling apps straight out of people app, 4. Better merged (linked) contact functionality for Alien Dalvik (linked People app contacts may show as individual contacts in Amdroid Apps) 5. Ability to apply Blocking straight from people app, including forwarding, including communication details and history log ability. 5.

@DarkTuring: totally agree for the phone thing. It also does not synchronize with exchange if you don't put the phone number this way.

I miss urgent the field "NOTICE" in the people app (synchronisation with google contacts)

edit: I would preference, if it could be resolved like in the calendar. Simply a swipe to the left or touching the point on the upper right corner, and all the notes are on the next page.

This has been mostly fixed with release

  • People app now provides a more accurate representation of contacts, correctly separating personal/work labels, and detail type information

I still miss a field for the profession (There is a field "job title", not sure whether it is the perfect representation for the profession) and for notes

The organization property in a vCard allows for both 'role' and 'title' attributes. We currently display only the 'role' field (although it may be called 'title' in your translation). We have subsequently discovered that we need to show both, as they are used somewhat interchangeably, and that will happen in the next update.
