    Default 3.2 (Network Edition) -> Thougs/Feedback/Wishes

    Hi,

    today I risked it and (after a full backup) I upgraded my productive server to 3.2. Here I want to post feedback about this (beta) version. They items are not ordered, I just wrote what came into my mind.

    • First of all, the new default skin is gorgious. It is much clearer than the brushed steal skin of all previous versions. Thumbs up!
    • The keyboard navigation is very practical. I didn't try all possible commands yet, but it would be handy if you could scroll pagewise with the [page up] and [page down] keys in the mail overview. I also miss a key for checking for new mails.
    • The options page in the frontend doesn't appear when clicking on the button at the sidebar (neither in FF 1.5 nor in IE 6)
    • First I thought the calendar wasn't working or wasn't correctly imported. But then I saw that the calendar was ticked off so no appointments where displayed. It seems to be a bug (before logging in into the upgraded Zimbra I cleared cache and cookies).
    • The behavior of the characterwise selection of contacts seems a bit strange to me. If I click on "D" all contacts from D are shown. If I click on "Q" all contacts from R are shown. But if I click on "X" I get "No results found". The last contact in my list begins with W.
      I would find it the best if only the names starting with the selected character would be shown and if there are none the user should get the not found message.
    • If I logout and login again Zimbra doesn't "remember" which mail folders I had opened and which not.
    • It isn't possible mark/copy text which is shown on the contact details page.
    • When I upload an attachment to a notbook page, an incorrect path is created. My server has the FQDN zimbra.mydomain.de. The path is generated with https://mydomain.de/bla/bla. Where can I change that? Is it hardcoded?


    Thats all for now, I will write more if something catches my eye.

    Thanks!! Check out options, you can change the skin as well. There should be at least 3-4 to pick from. When 3.2 is done I think we'll have more like 6-7 skins to choose from. You'll also be able to set in the admin UI which skins user's can pick from.

    This is a bug that is fixed in the next build.

    This is a bug that will get fixed in the next build. Also once you make your selection(s) they will be saved from then on.

    The behavior today is to start with the letter you pick an then show up to 25 (or what ever your page size is) of the contacts that follow. The idea is to save server round trips when you've only got a few contacts since we get back a full page we just go ahead and display them.

    This is not a feature yet. Please file it in bugzilla.

    Yes this is a bug and hardcoded.. It should be fixed in the next build.

    I don't know if it was a failure of my browser/cache or the Zimbra server, but on my first logon I saw a sort of "sand skin" with less images.
    Now I have the new brushed steel theme, but I can't wait to try the other ones once the options page is working.

    I know that, you misunderstood me. In my case I have 100 messages per page, with "pagewise" I meant scrolling the view vertically with the [page up] and [page down] buttons. It would be nice to have.


    One more thing that annoyed me some times: Using the (very practical) keyboard navigation you can't reach the body of a message. When selecting a message by pressing [Enter] the focus is somewhere but not on the message text (where I expect it to be). I can't switch to it with the tab key.

    Additionally, If i click into the message body I can't close the message with pressing [ESC].

    Yes, it is. In this case it can be merged with my previous added bug 9067
