Sync same Speed Dial on every device

  • I want to have the same Speed Dials on every device.

    This must be my choice.

    I don't want a copy of each one, I don't want the mess of micromanaging each device. I just want the same Speed Dial in different computers, notebooks, tablets, hybrids, smartphones... Just simple and logical like bookmarks syncing.

  • Yes! Please make the user able to choose which speed dial in the folder "other speed dials" to use. That would be perfect.

  • Synchronization is quite useless if you cant sync between devices. Whats the point of synchronization this way?

  • I can't agreee with you, Rafael, because I don't need the same speed dial in all devices. The speed dial I have in my computer is different from what I have in my phone.

  • I can't agreee with you, Sidney, because I need the same Speed Dial in all devices. The Speed Dial I have in my computer is the same I want in a notebook and in my phone. If I had a tablet I'd want the same links from my phone/PC there also.

    I think the solution might be letting the user choose which folders to sync (Speed Dial being one of those folders). Via a simple checkbox + action/OKdialog interface for example.

    Exactly, that's what I meant.

  • I am disappointed. I like Opera and was looking forward to having my bookmarks and Speed Dials syncd between computers and phone. IT DOESN"T WORK! I am signed in to the same account on all devices and there is no synchronization. FRUSTRATED!

    Which versions of Opera are being used? On mobile it only syncs bookmarks and opened tabs afaik.

  • On mobile it only syncs bookmarks and opened tabs afaik.

    Only bookmarks in the current stable (version 28).

  • so is there a way to do this right now? opera used to use the same speed dial on every device and now it isnt!!!! im at my wits end, opera wont let me call them, email them, chat with them and i cant get any version to sync shit between any device and the only important one is the speed dial, and the only one syncing is the bookmarks!!!!! but they sync in a way that makes it impossible to use cause i have to jump through 6 links to get to them!!!!! im abandoning opera if this isnt fixed. this used to be the best and now its no better than IE.

  • There is another problem with Sync...

    Say you have formated your PC a few times, Its speed dials remain there... Once try to delete them, they will reappear because they will sync back from other devices... So it is impossible for me to delete old ones, unless i disable sync in ALL my devices... Then Delete the folders from all Devices (and all installations)... Then Re-enable sync in all devices...

    If you go to others speed dial in Bookmarks you can remove others devices.

    Now I agree with you. Firefox Sync syncs the same thing on each device conected. The Opera Sync is a complete mess.

  • On both my PC i want the same speed dial, but on mobile i like a different one.
    Please add an option to set a "default speed dial/share a speed dial".
    In this way we can choose to use the same SD between 2 device or different SD for all devices.

  • This. I thought it was a bug on the developer / beta versions, but it seems that this is just the way it works ...

    I want to be able to choose which speed dial I want in each computer: share between two computers, or have different ones, but it should be configurable.

    Right now I really don't see what's the point of syncing speed dials.

  • I must bring this up again, because I'm growing tired of this feature/bug.

    This is how my "Other Speed Dials" looks like right now:

    And I don't even have that many computers. And it takes way too long time to delete them, one by one. And why would I search trough all of them just to find a regular speed dial site like youtube.com?

    It would be much better if it by default just used the same folder for every computer, and then a user can add another one manually, and then on every computer choose which folder to use. No one could complain about such an implementation of the speed dial sync, and it can't be hard to implement.

  • I started to use Opera just last week and love it. However, in FF I used Speed Dial extension which synced with all my computers through EverSync. No problems at all. I was even able to choose whether I want to download from server, override server or synchronize. I downloaded as Chrome ext. to Opera but for some reason it didnt work. So, I played with Opera very limited dials (dont like just names instead of logos). Unfortunately it doesnt sync to another computer. Then I opened Opera Mini on my iPhone and found one Dial set from Desktop PC and New one, separate from Laptop. Lucky it didnt override what I had on Desktop as this is my main PC and all is nicely set up there. However, I still want to have the same Dials on laptop.
    I cannot see any options except sync enabled and...what?

    Any help is appreciated

    I use 36.0.2130.70
    Windows 10 64

    That's what this feature request is about...

    Btw, your text looks strange because you're using the wrong character for apostrophe (for example when you write don't). Now a markdown feature gets applied instead, which makes the text mono-spaced.

    Thank you. I did not realize I had wrong characters. It is not first time I had this issue. Now I am not using apostrphe to stay safe 🙂

  • Hello all.
    I have the same problem. Description:
    I have 2 devices - my home PC and work PC and all synchronization is turned on. I want to add some site to speed dial @ home PC and here is no problem. But I want to add the same site to the speed dial at my work PC - and here is problem: it shows in the interface that site is already bookmarked (in a speed dials on other devices / home PC). So if I change folder at work PC to the Speed dial it will gone from speed dial at home PC. Thats it.

    There is something wrong with this. Why I can't add the same link to more than one speed dial?
    I think we need simple checkbox in bookmark's properties to show it on a speed dial.
