1Password Mini suggestions weirdness in 7.6.BETA-3

hazmathazmat Member

In Beta 3, I see that Suggestions in 1Password Mini are for the app in focus. Is this functionality in progress? In its current state, it often makes no sense except for in a browser.

Thanks.

    Hi @hazmat

    This is working as intended. We have a thread about it here:

    How to associate a 1Password record with a specific Mac app? — 1Password Forum

    Thanks, Ben. I see where you're going with this. Where I'm specifically noticing this is when logging into VPN for work. The password for that is the topmost entry in Favorites. How do I associate it with this?

    @hazmat,

    you could try app://com.apple.usernotificationcenter and see if that lines up?

    Thanks, @rudy ! That worked.

    Hello again. The more I use this new functionality, the more I think it might not be the best idea as default. I think Suggestions is best for use in a web browser, but overall in the OS, I think a consistent list of items like before, along with app-related suggestions, would make the most sense. For most users, adding app-specific URLs to entries will likely be a daunting task, and by default they'll get nothing when they pull up 1Password mini.

    Do you mean having a separate menu in 1Password mini, just for apps?

  • hazmathazmat Member

    @ag_ana Good question. I guess whatever was there before this change, when default was set to Suggestions? Was it what you see in the browser below the suggested items for that web site? Favorites, identities, and credit cards? I don't exactly remember, but I think those being persistent like in the browser is very handy. Also seems like a more consistent experience for the user. Suggestions and then the standard items. Does that make sense? I can ramble.

    @hazmat:

    I might be misunderstanding what you are saying, but things should not have changed from the default Suggestions view. Only if you add an app URL to a 1Password item, that item is shown in 1Password mini when the relevant app is opened. Are you perhaps referring to keeping those suggestions in the list even when the app is not open?

  • hazmathazmat Member

    @ag_ana Sorry if I wasn't clearer. I just pulled it up on a laptop to remind myself of what 1Password mini pulls up when not in a browser and preferences are set to Suggestions. It showed Favorites and then everything below it. Not sure what's best, but showing nothing to the average user I think is a bad idea. Maybe show Favorites along with the app-based suggestion at the very least?

    @hazmat:

    I see what you mean now, thank you! This is currently configurable in 1Password Preferences > Mini tab > "Open 1Password to". I think that the default was originally set to All Items, which caused a lot of confusion, so it was then changed to Suggestions. We can certainly keep an eye on this however, and see what feedback we receive :+1:

  • hazmathazmat Member

    @ag_ana Right. I think the default that makes the most sense for a browser plugin doesn't necessarily make the most sense elsewhere in the OS.
