  1. Tracking

    Extend the child tracking/location feature to consenting adults. Clearly the adult being tracked should have to agree. A subsequent feature would then bring Cortana into play. Example: "Mary has arrived home." Or "Mary seems to be at the grocery store if you forgot to put anything on the list."

    • Notification previews. When long pressing an app icon with a notification, I would like to see more information about the notification.

      When long pressing an app with a notification, I would like to see what the notification is. Also, give the user the option to select a default calendar app.

        • Notifications not red

          Red notifications are more addictive. User more likely to click on them. Which means that the user overall used their phone more. Therefore to reduce the addictiveness of the phone the colour of the notification should be adjustable.

                • Why "to do" doesn't give pop up reminder for an item in the list?

                  The to do item doesn't give a notification even if it set with a time based reminder. I do get them on my computer, but not on phone.

                    • about the delayed notification bar

                      on home screen, the pull down gesture for displaying notification bar is delayed and i see a notification box saying that it's under investigation on why it is delayed. i think that is a normal behavior (to be delayed) since the few first pixels swiped by my finger are recorded as normal movement like when scrolling through a timeline in some other app like 9gag or instagram.

                      • Notification panel

                        It would be nice, if micorsoft launcher has its own notification panel, thus replacing the boring stock version. You can add cool features to it. Starting with a coloured version of panel and button like icons.

                        • Do not disturb during events

                          Set preferences for turning on do not disturb (Outlook for Android just added this).

                          I'd like to have the MS launcher automatically turn on do not disturb during certain scenarios.
                          i.e.

                          -during calendar events.
                          -when I leave current location
                          -for 1 hr

                                  We always search for a flashlight notification App but none are really free and full functional. Launcher should integrate these kind of small but useful stuffs.

                                    Recent activities screen should be dynamic changed when we read new messages, mails etc. Now, when I have readed notifications and deletes that Recent Activities still shows old removed notifications. I'm using this for missing call, messages and mails.
