Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When inviting a person to an event and accidentally clicking on the email of this person it takes you to the email writing window so that you can't create your event anymore.

steps to reproduce:

  1. Create event.
  2. Go to the tap "participants".
  3. Add another person by using their email to the event.
  4. Click on the email address.

actual results:
A window for sending an email opens so you are not able to create your event anymore.

expected results:
You can not click on the email address that takes you away from your event creation. After having created the event you can click on the participant's address and send an email.

I can reproduce the issue.

I don't know if adding a "back" button is the right solution.
The browsers "back" button should be sufficient.
In this case it takes you back to the calendar view but the "create event state" is not persistent.

isabel.pacheco renamed this task from No "go back" option to No event creation possible when clicking on a participant.

I changed the steps, photo, etc. Everbody happy with it?

I can reproduce the problem as well. I think the browsers back button sufficient. But i would prefer for the event to still be in creation when going back.

@machniak feedback?

I guess we could implement something similar to the mail compose, when you make an action that will make the mail destroyed (the changes since last auto-save) then you're asked if you're sure. However, this will be too much effort. We should just not make the addresses clickable in event editing mode.
