Add Organization to Contact?

Post by AlCan » Mon Jun 25, 2012 2:18 am

Hi dwp,

Under the Organization tab, long tap on an Organization brings up a menu which includes:

"Add contacts to organization"

but there is no

"Add Organization to Contact" option in the Contacts list, long tap menu.

Is it possible to add this, please?

Also, under my settings, I have no icon or image for my Organization details under the Organization tab. This makes the lines for each listing very short (not enough height) and therefore difficult to tap accurately. Can you give us a setting for line height for this tab, please?


Regards,
Al

I would like this you can enter in the edit contacts.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, sorry. Are you saying you like my request, or that you'd like me to do this using Edit contacts, or Both?

Yes, I know it can be done manually, but then, you need to be sure you get the Organisation name exactly the same. It would be nice if there was a Long tap option so you can just pick it. I don't mean a multi-select option like for "Add Contacts to Organisation" because that's not really needed, just the ability to Long Tap on the contact, select "Add to Organisation" then pick an Organisation from the list.

Thanks! Can that be user configurable?

Hello
I understand your intent.
I was to add a contact to the viewer.
I would like to avoid long press the menu is too long.
I will add this functionality to the contact viewer.
For the height of the minimum list of items. I want to use a fixed value. OK?

Yes, it is a bit long, especially as there are already two pages! But, as it is an option that probably won't get that much use, could it go at the bottom of the second page?

Of course! It's up to you as the developer! Personally, I would like User configurable, because it's a compromise: The smaller you have the minimum height, the more entries you get on the list, and vice versa. But the smaller it is, the harder it is to tap the right line, which is my current problem... So, it's something I might want to play with.

At the moment, my screen is 3.7", 480 x 854 pixels, and I get about 13.4 lines of data in my Organization tab, which is too small, but I don't know if you can work out how many pixels it is now. I have the Tab bar On, and the Organizations title bar, with about 13.4 Organization lines visible. About 9 or 10 is probably about right. For me, the Long Tap menu lines are slightly bigger than they need to be anyway - though I guess that's a System-wide value?

Meantime, of course, use fixed. If you make the minimum about the same height as the main Title bar (slightly smaller than the Long Tap list Title bar), that should be good. This won't affect people with icons or pictures enabled.

Many thanks,
Al

Hello Al
I use the screen-independent parameters for the minimum height. For different resolutions have the same physical height.

Hi dwp,

V2.2.0 - the Organisation list fixed line height is great.

Thanks!

Hi AI
Some users prefer the original height. So I added a custom option in the theme.
