Noting Paul Breneman’s earlier problems setting location etc., how does one tell the profile page to actually take note of a change of username, location and so on? I’m logged in using an email address rather than via a Facebook etc. account, but /surely/ the whole point of a project like this is not to require the services of some third party?
I’m trying to do an initial demo of Mycroft to a non-geek, and would really like to convince it that it’s not in Kansas any more
Thanks for your feedback, @MarkMLl
This aspect of our UI has garnered many swear words internally over the the last few weeks, and I apologise that it’s not more intuitive. There are two places that location information is stored;
- In the Profile settings link
- And in the settings for each Device (each device has a unique link)
You need to ensure that the device location is set.
Please let me know if this doesn’t make sense.
PS we’re going to be refreshing the UI soon
It makes lots of sense, but I can’t see an “OK” button etc. on the profile page and while going to e.g. the password setting page /temporarily/ shows a changed (e.g.) username I can’t find anything to actually commit it.
Firefox 60.4 on Debian, no NoScript etc.
Possibly caused by having an upper-case letter in the user ID.
Maybe, we have a preview of the new interface coming out shortly, which includes new backend API’s so things should be running a lot smoother soon
I don’t want to sound critical, but having done my share of telephone support I’d /hate/ to have to support a system where a major UI element vanished depending on context. The fact that the element is at the top of the screen- i.e. the first landmark you’re trying to establish with an inexperienced user- and the thing that caused it to disappear is further down makes the situation even worse.
So I agree: having somebody slightly further removed from the development process eyeball the proposed result would probably be a good idea.
