Thank YOU for the feedback!
We’re learning how to improve how we gather feedback, so I appreciate you being understanding! I updated the Feature Request submission guidelines with another bullet point on preferring multiple narrowly scoped requests over a single broad one.
A key philosophy we have in mind while designing things is to keep things “Simple, but powerful”. Sometimes this means hiding certain customizations away behind ‘Advanced’ toggles or in some cases including them in certain ‘power user’ parts of the app. Adding the ability to customize every feature of every tile would certainly make things more customizable, but at the tradeoff of ease of use.
That’s part of the reason we put such a focus on including actual use cases and specific problems you are trying to solve. There’s lots of new knobs and levers we could add, but we’re much more interested in understanding the underlying use cases.
From what I’ve heard from this post and other user messages, it sounds like the core use cases would be covered by adding a Hyperlink Action to the following tiles:
- Weather Tiles
- Monthly Calendar
- Hero Attribute Tile
It might not be perfect with the Hero Attribute tile, but I think it’s a great start and the Hero Attribute tile itself could be improved. For example, the Color State Mapping for Custom Attributes request which has a decent number of votes should really help.
What are your thoughts?
