This is a feature that has been much requested, but unfortunately is slated for post 8.0. However, we wanted to get some early feedback on it. Thanks to Noy Wanderski for her design.
The design is to add a quota idicator to the top of the navigator:
The quota control can be expanded or collapsed.
So, our questions are:
- How often should we refresh/update the quota bar? Should we refresh on each replication?
- Should we tuck the Server name into this section too, so that the user could expand/collapse the server name at the same time (with the quota information)?
- Should displaying this control (i.e. quota bar) be controlled via Admin policy?
- Should we only display this control ONLY if the user is running off a server replica (and not on a local mail file)?
Please let us know your thoughts.
