2 search fields with the same description "search..." directly next to each other
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In the very first calendar interface there are two different search fields directly next to each other. The functions of the searches are unclear.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. search for an already registered entry in the search field directly above the calendar.
  2. the entry will appear.
  3. Search for an entry in the left search.

Actual results:
there are no findings when you search in the left search field.

Expected results:
it says "Search for calendar" and "Search for event" in the search interfaces so that you actually know what to use it for and get a result.

It searches for a calender and it works. Maybe instead of writting "Search..." in the field we could change them to "Search for Calender..." and "Search for event..." ? That would maybe lift the confusion.

That would be better, yes.

So we change the ticket?

Yes that sounds like a good plan so you know what you can enter..

Agreed. I left "Search...." for the main search input and changed the other input to "Find calendars...". I unified all tasks' UI this way. Fixed.
