[jitsi-dev] Name to a contact?


#1

Hello:

As a user of every nightly build that comes down on
Windows 7, I am using Jitsi successfully with Sipgate.
One thing that stands out to me is not being able to
give an alpha name to a contact. It seems the new contact
dialog can only take the sip address or phone number in the name
field for it to dial or make a sip connection. I would like
to put for example the name of John Doe on a phone number
or address for reference purposes. Am I missing something,
or is this on the list things to be done? Then again I may be missing
a design feature that's gone right over my head.

I think the people working on this project are doing a great job
on something with a very worthwhile purpose.

Thanks,
Bill Manley

Hey Bill,

Apologies for the delay.

Can you try the latest build?

Previously, one had to first add the contact and then change the display
name by renaming it but we've now added an extra field that allows you
to pick an alias while adding the contact.

Does this work for you?

Cheers,
Emil
