Re: Detailed lock screen notifications by default, for a particular application?

Just wanted to help, but I agree, changing global settings is never a good idea.
maybe such an application should provide a direct link to the affected settings dialog. either in app settings or checking it on application start and showing a notification.

Well, it's extremely rude to change to change global settings from your application.

I'm divided about whether to provide apps a way to set a default policy. I think it's really important that we get privacy out of the box and allow a user to configure it if they want more details. But at the same time, your notifications don't really contain any private information...

hi dylan,

the option you are looking for is store in gsettings - It guess it should be possible to change the value to true inside your application/extention.

For my break timer gsoc project, we'd like to have a detailed lock

notification I want, it looks like every user must open the
Notifications settings panel and change their preferences for the
application to include "Show details in lock screen." Naturally,
that's a little annoying.

Is there a nicer way about this? I think one solution is if my
application could specify particular defaults for its notification
preferences. That way the user could still adjust notifications the
same way, but the "Show details in lock screen" switch would be on by

If this isn't a thing we can do right now, is it something we'd be
interested in having? I'd be happy to try to implement it :)
