(FR) SUPPRESSION D'INDICATIONS DE COMMUNICATIONS ENTRANTES DANS DES INTERFACES UTILISATEUR
Abstract
(EN)
Systems, methods, and software are disclosed herein for handling incoming communications. In an implementation, an application receives a notification of an incoming communication for which a related application may have also received a related notification of the incoming communication. Prior to surfacing an indication of the incoming communication in a user interface, the application ascertains whether or not the related application will surface a related indication. If so, the application suppresses its own indication in favor of the related application. If not, the application surfaces its own indication.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes, des procédés et un logiciel permettant de gérer des communications entrantes. Dans un mode de réalisation, une application reçoit une notification d'une communication entrante pour laquelle une application associée peut avoir reçu également une notification associée de la communication entrante. Avant de présenter une indication de la communication entrante dans une interface utilisateur, l'application détermine si l'application associée va présenter ou non une indication associée. Si tel est le cas, l'application supprime sa propre indication en faveur de l'application associée. Si tel n'est pas le cas, l'application traite sa propre indication.
