Old bug, just have enough of it :) In reminders window a random event marked

Post by Trinitylab »

Hi,

Win 8.1, Win 10, both x64.

Old bug, for years:
when you have a reminder triggered, there is (if set) sound, and EPIM reminders window on a taskbar starts flashing.
So I open reminders window in order to see which event has been triggered, and what I have to do now.
But this is impossible, because there is always one event marked in the window, no matter which event has been triggered.
The example:
EPIM_bug_reminders.PNG
The blue background should mark the current event but it does only one, and the same. In the pic above the first event has been just triggered, but no chance to see which one from that window, unless one knows and remembers the agenda. Or goes to a calendar. But anyway, reminders then do not make sense, because if a reminder has been triggered 3 days before the event, one needs to remember which event has 3-day reminder before set.

This persists for a long time.

Thank you, we will see what can be done. I am not sure that's a bug, but yes, the logic can be improved.
Maxim,

Still not fixed, I do not understand why the window is still in use, if a user can't see which event has been triggered exactly.

I also believe this suggestion/improvement should not be forgotten :-)

Still persists.

Just for your information, Team, it should work that way:
the triggered event should appear at the top of the reminders window (and it does), with the blue background (after all, what for is it if not to mark something?),
and this 'currently being triggered' event reminder should be slightly larger than previous reminders (font size +2), and with a bit of space to the other reminders (around 15 px).
