POI Alert from inactive folder, cannot open the item from map!

I just discovered the new(?) folder option in POI alert. It`s really useful!


But, one small improvement (big for me) is still missing.


If a choose an inactive folder as the source for POIs, (i.e. these points are not shown on map) and I come within the alert range of the POI, Locus gives an alarm, displays the point`s icon and name on map. So far, so very good!


But if I try to open this point by clicking on it on the map, nothing happens.


I have to go to the points menu, select a folder and select the point, very tedious :(


So I want the alerted POI to be clickable on map!

Hello Stebu,


this really happen??

If so, then this is a bug. This should not happen :). Locus should react only on a visible points, not on an invisible once!! I`m playing with it now, and I`m unable to simulate it. Is there anything special you did to get this problem? Thanks

Please, don`t fix this! :D


I`ll try some testing later.

I can`t reproduce this behaviour :(. I tried exactly the same steps, but could not get alerts from inactive POIs?


OK, forget this, although it could have opened up new use cases.

Stebu, sorry, but I`m sure it can`t work in this way. For this, i have to send some requests to database to get closest POI`s etc and this is something I for sure do not do in Locus.


I also do not see any reason why this should work in a way you want. Selecting folders in POI alert should help to get warnings only on wanted points, not on all. That`s the only reason ...
