View Full Version : Option to pick field order on various entry screens

On my Droid X, when I go to create a new calendar event, I see the following fields above the on-screen keyboard:


Subject
Category
Private
From
To
All Day

Hidden beneath the OSK are:


Recurrence
With
Location
Alarm

Note is kind of at the bottom but mostly off-screen.

The fields I use most are:


Subject
Category
From
To
Alarm
Recurrence

Currently, this means that for almost every event I create, I have to scroll. It would be very helpful to me to be able to set the order of the fields so that my most common fields showed above the OSK so that I wouldn't have to scroll.

I think this would be useful in other entry screens as well. For example, I almost never use the Private setting, so I'd like to be able to shove it down to the bottom of all screens so it's out of my way. And for Contacts, I'm most interested in First/Last Name, Category, Email, and Phone, so I'd like to be able to put those up top.

I'd like to emphasize that I'm not asking for my specific field order to be implemented, but rather an option to set the field order for each subapplication.

I completely agree with that:
I use mostly only:
Subject
Notes
From
To
All the others are mostly (sometimes I use category) of no interest to me and I would like to see them on the bottom as well.
