I think it could be useful to have configurable minimize swipes in Sailfish 2.0, so you can choose which sideway swipe does what, eg left goes to home-screen, right to events-view or partner-screen. It should make it possible to quickly access a specific screen (for example by swiping from left to right) and peeking on the notification screen.

It could be make as choice in menus with default being both sideways swipe lead to running apps screen.

Found the tweet by Jaakko Roppola they already are thinking about it:

I think this is a good idea for all those who want to stay with the now used gestures. E.g. Swipe from top you can choose if ambience manager pops or if it closes app / locks device from home

Not sure, if it is duplicate. Request you mention talks about swiping the basic views (lock-, home-, launcher-). These became partly irrelevant because of changes in SFOS 2.0. What I want to manage is what swipes while an app is running are doing. I mainly want to access notifications faster, which is not issue in SFOS 1.

that is still no specific SFOS 2.0 request... in app minimize swipe, does not need to be configurable for me... that is just something I'd not touch at all and I do not want that sideway layout anyway, if the partner-screen is enabled to be deactivated I do not need a two pane home-screen swipeable ever and for sure no duplicated gestures to get to launcher.

It should be definitely configurable to the user. I'm totally against the new carousel home-screen. It may be less problematic for new users to adapt and more suitable for tablets screen size but phone usage will definitely lose in terms of ergonomy and speed of navigation. It looks much like a nokia n9 interface now which is kind of step back in UI design. Sfos 1.x.x ui with redisigned event's view was what I was hoping to get from mwc not reinvented wheel.

Though I must admit, the ambiance switcher accesible with the swipe from the top is kinda good idea...but only if they somehow leave the closing app option.
