I think it would be pretty useful if we could assign an ambience to a calendar event. We could create an ambience with all sounds off, which would automatically be selected during an important meeting, for example. Or we could create an ambience for work, which would be automatically selected during workdays. If ambiences allow more than just setting ringtones and wallpapers in the future, the whole phone could change its behaviour when a certain event is triggered.

I actually had this idea as well. It would be nice to see this integrated in the OS, but until then I tried to make some scripts on my own, though I can't find out how to get information regarding calendar events. Switching ambience can be made by dbus-send: dbus-send --session --print-reply --dest=com.jolla.ambienced /com/jolla/ambienced com.jolla.ambienced.setAmbience string:'file:///usr/share/ambience/nameofambience/nameofambience.ambience'

This is an excellent idea, similar to what is possible on N9 and Profilematic.
