I'm suggesting the following changes to the reminder dialog box that appears, displaying alarms. I think it would make it more functional and be clearer to use.
Add a snooze icon to the right of each entry shown
(or left if that is more consistent)
If the user clicks on this, they get the current context menu sub-menu snooze options (see image).
Remove the current context menu from each entry shown
You don't need it any more, because the user can select the dismiss icon to the left of each entry (or below to dismiss all), they can double click to edit it, or click on the snooze icon for that entry to select how long to snooze it.
Add advanced options for snoozing
Why not make the six options on the snooze sub-menu configurable? There would be an entry for each which would set the number of units snoozed, and the type (second, minute, hour, day, week). That way, the user could use whatever is convenient for them.<br><br>Post edited by: LauraSeabrook, at: 2007/06/05 20:17
