    Default Lots of input/feedback on User Interface ..more coming

    Hi..In our testing we have found few things, which are logical and are missing in USER INTERFACE. Just our feedback for truly professional user Interface that Zimbra is providing for all the complex stuff in the back

    1) Once a "Search" is built using Search Builder there is no way to EDIT it. Whole idea of SAVING a search is assuming people do lots of saved searched and they may be using COMPLEX criterion.
    So in my opinion Saved Searches Criteria Should be Editable.
    * I am big fan of search; in big enterprise people like to find stuff fast. Key to be contender to Enterprise Software is information tracking and retrieval

    2) How can user create "Special Search" mask ..like you already have 4 predefined masks (URL, PHONE, LINK, TRACKING)..it would be cool to have User created masks..i.e: if company has order numbers like XYZ-00000000
    User can create Search Mask for "XYZ -*" string and do some Action like LINK it or something
    * This can attract large number of sales/support companies

    3) I have 5000 emails in my inbox in Zimbra (100 messages/ page) and I cannot JUMP to page 25 (2500th message) I have to click 25 times on next Arrows <- 0 100 ->
    * Jump to or select PAGE is very common in most of the web-mail user interfaces

    4) After composing Email..when you click on SEND..interface is not responsive till the time system connects to MTA and put mail in QUE if its a BUSY system it get stuck for few seconds and user donít see ANY PROGRESS BAR or message that Zimbra is trying to send email..so to user it looks like STUCK.
    * Anything telling user Zimbra is working while sending mail is cool to have to remove this confusion.

    More input as we goÖ
    Posted some stuff in ADMIN forums to know about backups..if anyone can take a look

    Good work guys..keep it up

    This has been in our system for sometime as an enhancement. bug 1016

    Here's one way to do it, although you'll need to save it with a new name.
    Click on Search Builder
    Select a 'Saved Search'
    This will put it in the search bar where you can modify it.
    Clicking Save (the floppy disk icon) will allow you to save it as a new search.

    Yes. We are working on a pretty rich framework for this. It will expose both the server side indexing and the client side matching we do today.

    Well I'd like to think Zimbra is not your *common* web-mail app. What are you looking for on page 25? My guess is a search would get you there *much* faster. FWIW: I have around 13,000 emails in my INBOX and don't miss the JUMP ability one bit.

    This will be fixed soon. We are making the send async.
