    • Usability of log processes like settings backup is vital when dealing with UI apps, which should help users with life.

      Usual to Microsoft programs is progess bar - it tries to show that its going fast, but stops at 100% and makes you lose a lot of time that way. It should be done in opposite way - to logarithmically show slower progress, but then surprise user with fast finish.

      Control and state of backup of settings is non-existent here, which pains in otherwise very well-configurable app.

            • Guardar backup con el nombre del dispositivo que lo hace

              tengo varios dispositivos con Luncher y todo lo manejo con OneDrive.
              Cuando hago la copia de seguridad no se guarda con el nombre del dispositivo que la está generando. después cuando uno quiera restaurarla no se sabe de cuál dispositivo es.

              • 能否自动同步数据到onedrive,而不是让用户手动点击

                我认为应该在数据变化(联系人、短信、提醒、笔记、相关配置等等)之后就立刻同步到onedrive,而不是让用户手动点击“备份”,我想大部分用户并不会去主动点击“备份”,那么必然会造成用户更换手机或者卸载应用后信息的丢失
                我也一直不理解微软非要增加用户“操作”、“设置”的根本目的是什么,是为了训练我们吗?

                • Please add connection to microsoft to-do

                  By now, the launcher can only sync to-do list with wunderlist, could you add connection to microsoft to-do? A bit strange that you didn't connect your software

                        • Automatically back up settings

                          I recently had to reset my settings in Microsoft Launcher but my most recent settings backup was out of date. It would be nice if you could set it to back up your settings automatically on a certain schedule.

                          • Automatically backup settings

                            Automatically backup launcher settings, screen layouts, etc. on a periodic basis or on changes. Preferably do differential backups for space savings.

                                • Launcher backups should indicate which device the backup is from, before restoring

                                  Currently all the launcher backups appear as one type, by date. There is no way of knowing which device the backup is from.
                                  If you use Launcher on more than one device, how do you know which one to use?

                                      I inadvertently deleted one of my home pages that I just created, so I did not have a backup of it. An undo deleted page option would be helpful, or do automatic backups
