OLPC-Write Activity – Validation needed when user tries to duplicate a file name

Reported by: hiruni Owned by: eben
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: design Version: Unspecified
Severity: Minor Keywords:
Cc: garycmartin, walterbender Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: New

Description

Description:

In write activity the same file names can be saved with different contents. When several files are saved with the same name, there is no way to differentiate those files. So it would be better, if validation is there to avoid the duplicate file names.

Steps

  1. Power on OLPC
  2. Click on the write activity icon on home page.
  3. Click on the text Tab.
  4. Type a text
  5. Save the document with a name
  6. Close it
  7. Open another document, type any text
  8. Save it with same file name as former and close
  9. Go to journal
    1. Verify whether two documents are exist with the same name



Actual Result:

Duplicate file names are allowed



Enhancement:

It would be better if there is a validation available when user tries to duplicate the file name

Tested Environment
OS Build: OS 116
Machine Type: XO 1.5
Firmware: Q3A35
Security Disable: Yes
Sugar Version: 0.84
Activity Version: 63

The isn't limited to Write, but a general design decision. I'm not sure we should do something about it (it's perfectly fine to give the same title to different documents), but asking others from the design team won't hurt.
