True, but I'm still questioning do you usually recognize your
collection by the 'collection name' or by what server it comes from?
In regards to your comment, '3 different servers in my Chandler', I
agree there should some sort of 'supplementary' information, just not
what's currently there which is the 'Description'. The 'Description'
name can be changed in the 'Accounts' dialog so you can pretty much
label it anything you want it to be. (See attached screenshot w/ no
photoshop tricks, the 'Sharing account' was renamed in Chandler.
Question: Which collection is this office calendar from? iCal or
Chandler, can you tell? And how?)
Again to my last point:
+ Another way to tell where a collection is shared might be to
describe the server that hosts the collection. ie. The server name
and path that is not editable by the user in 'Accounts'. iCal server
at Mac.com or Cosmo server at Cosmo-demo.osafoundation.org. This
information is useful, however once again, displaying this type of
information may be more useful for the advanced users; a user who
would understand the difference of collections being hosted on
Yes, we should provide the user with information to which 'server'
the collection is stored on. Though to get to this point, Mimi and I
are going to sit down and work out an 'ideal' solution–which
hopefully will be the least amount of work for releasing Chandler's
Having said that of course, I welcome suggestions for a better
solution then what is there currently. Or if your opinion is that
everything 'looks fine by me', that's fair too.
