Very basic and simple ideia, just what the title says: Reminders could have a different color than regular comments (orange?)


Some complex logic often gets several comments on it and this would help to rapidly identify the reminders/todo/WIP from the "documentation"

Smart one. Me like!

Hi!

I was about to insert this idea that I had for a long time but it already existed. Good one Hermínio Mira.

To overcome this issue I currently insert manually the text "REMINDER:", similar to this:

-

REMINDER: SomeAction(): Deprecated function. To be deleted.

-

to alert me in the flow that the note is a reminder.

Cheers,

Tiago Bernardo

The Reminder:Yes functionality is great for flagging To-Dos on Actions and WebScreens.

It would be helpful if these were distinguishable from other comments in the flow, since those comments are typically used to document the code.

For example, Reminder:Yes should change the comment box from Yellow to Orange.

My reminders usually scroll off the screen so they don't actually remind me.

I agree this idea should be merged with the idea of Hermínio Mira as he previous mentioned.

Can we get the reminder comments in service studio to show up in a different color the the regular comments.  That will make it easier to spot reminders when looking at action flows with extensive commenting in place.

Hi Ali,

Thanks for reporting this idea. Why would you want this specifically?


By the way, there is already an idea to distinguish comments from reminders:

https://www.outsystems.com/ideas/1961/Reminder+comments+with+a+different+color

Is this your use case?


Cheers,

Hey Izak,

Not sure if they should have different colors but there should be a way of quickly/visually identify if we are talking about a comment or reminder.

Thanks for the idea

I think that could be very helpfull !!! 


Can even appear as a  property of the comment

Comments can be a reminder or not. It would be nice if reminder-comments have another color (eg. orange or red) so that it stands out more. 

After changing 'IsReminder' to true, the color can be changed.

I'm glad to announce that, since the 08th of Aug, comments set as Reminders will show with a different color (both in O11 and Project Neo):

As always, you can find your contribution directly in the Product Release notes.

Hope you like it and please keep helping us build a better product!
