Description (last modified by jwangenheim)


Users should be able to force update all selected lists in a easy way. Currently users need to wait for the regular update or uncheck and check a subscription in order to update it.

What to change

Implement a functionality that enables the user to update all selected subscriptions.

Hey Jens, what's the status here?

Some user insight: looks like some of them got issues due to filter lists not downloaded. However, it is hard for them to follow the steps to unclick and then reclick again of the filter list rather than one "force update" button.

Hey vicky,

no progress so far, I just started looking into it before christmas.
I think we should prioritize the open tasks soon with mario.

In order to finish the implementation there are still a few things to clarify.

  1. We currently have a 15 minutes threshold for subscription updates. So even if the users want to force update, they only can do it once every 15 minutes. Is there a reason for this threshold, or could we just et it to 1 minute? I already asked fhd and ferris about it. Felix said it's okay to change it, ferris is not sure and said he is the wrong person to ask.
  1. Do we even want to update the subscriptions if the user is on a metered connection? Should we use the existing setting from "Configure automatic updates" and rename it to "Configure updates"? Or should we show a dialog and ask/warn the user every time he wants to request an update? What should happen if the user clicks on "Update all subscriptions" but he is on a metered connection and only wants to update on a WIFI connection? We should probably show a Toast or something, right?

How should we go on, @vicky @mario?
