Spee dials on other devices vs actual device

  • I have 2 suggestions with speed dials and synchronization

    1. It will be much better to have option to pick speed dials from other devices. Something like right mouse menu at other speed dials and otion "make this as my speed dial" or something similar. Right now its quite complicated if you have to have same speed dial on 2 or more devices. Maybe if you use browser first time there could be some kind of popup with your other speed dials suggestion to choice.

    2. Maybe there could be some kind of speed dials manager so you can make for example 3 folders with speed dials like: PC, tablet, phone. And then you can easily choice from your device what speed dial you want to use on this device. Its quite mess if all devices create one extra folder with speed dial. So you create your speed dials and then you associate your devices to your speed dials.

    Right now is speed dials managing quite inefficient because if you want to choice speed dial from other devices you have to copy and paste all speed dail bookmarks and you have to sort them as you want one by one... not really effective.

    This is definitely needed.

  • I have some questions that you should think about: If you sync speed dial what benefit do you get from it? Why do you even need it?

    You dont need to sync speed dials because till you reinstall/lost/destroy your phone/tablet/PC you will not lose your speed dial and when you for example reinstall system and install Opera again there is no way how to sync your previous speed dial back because youll get automatically new one with no option to add your previous speed dial.

    So creating regular bookmarks folders with your speed dials sites and then just copy and paste it to your new speed dial is ironically easier and faster.

  • The reason we still need "selective sync" is because every time you make a change on any of your devices, you will have to do it on every other device.

  • @gustavwiz but you cant sync speed dials to other devices so if you do change on some device it will do nothing to other devices.

  • Exactly.

  • I like this idea. Thanks

    At the moment I'm using bookmarks like speed dial.
    If I add/delete some bookmarks on PC2
    I delete all speed dial on PC1
    Then, on PC1, after sync, I copy all the bookmarks and past them in PC1 speed dial folder.
