Unable to create Watch List

Postby rh » Sat Sep 15, 2018 8:24 pm

I have 3, 1 active, is there a limit? I'm unable to create any more. I tried from the Group List tree view and from the Watch List dialog. I provide a name, click ok, nothing happens.

There's a limit but it's much more than 3. You can't name a watch the same as a group or topic (GOG). I'd say naming problems are the number one problem when people can't make a watch.

Thank you! A dialog error/reminder when it can't be created would be handy for newbies or old people that forget - because I do recall you saying this before :-)

I had an OLD Custom List named exactly the same.
