Some contacts of mine have multiple XMPP accounts, e.g. one private account and another for work. So I linked both XMPP IDs to the same contact and now that's what I see:

Great, 2 XMPP accounts. But which one is which?

A solution for that could be displaying the XMPP ID there instead of just XMPP. But that wouldn't be that user-friendly. What if I could give each account a name in the people app like "work", "private", "intercepted-by-NSA" (for the Google Talk ones) and then displaying this there? Just a little textbox allowing me to name the account. That should be quite easy to implement and would really save me a lot of trouble.

This should definitely be fixed, even more if Jolla wants to stay with XMPP (which is the right choice for me).

I seem to remember from somewhere that this is on the roadmap already

@steph That'd be great, indeed.
