Importing contacts (feature request)
PostPosted: Tue Apr 22, 2008 11:05 pm Reply with quote

It would be very nice if J2J automatically imported all contacts instead of requiring the user to do extremely difficult things.

Issues of the current method to add contacts to the roster (I am thinking like Aunt Tilly here!):
* When registered the contacts of the user are not imported in his roster. Most people (including me) will think the transport is broken and will stop using it even before getting started (I only found out how it works after I tried the transport for the third time).
* It is no consistent behaviour of transports and thus it makes things more complicated for the user.
* I don't think Aunt Tilly will find it obvious that she has to disco the J2J transport JID.
* Not all clients allow drag and drop from the service discovery interface to the roster. An example is Coccinella.
* Besides not all clients supporting this, it is also unintuitive; transports should simply work out-of-the-box without teasing the user with complicated things in order to even get started. The "Getting Started part" is the most important thing you should focus on to make software suitable for Aunt Tilly

How many clients support XEP-0144? I don't know another way to import contact. Also, many users thinks that it is feature and not the bug Smile For example, I use j2j to hide my big roster on my mobile.

And I'm feeling good!
