When I right-click the KA icon in the SysTray, I get a list of options reading, from to to bottom . . .
About, Help, Registration, Calendar, Contacts, . . .
I'm requesting changing this menu as follows . . .
Create a submenu under Create New Alarm similar to

Create New Alarm
     Add New Alarm
     Popup
     Email
          (a submenu here either listing all contacts by name or, at minimum, the 3-4 most recent/common.)

I find I use "email" 90% of the time (sending emails to my or family's cell) and the current sequence is
right-click KA, select Create New Alarm, select Email, select To Email Address, select Contact, select Select.
A lot of selecting that could be eliminated with a submenu.  The programming is not particularly difficult and, I suspect, would be convenient for a number of users.

Hi

Thanks for the suggestion!

I don't see too many problems in making the change.

Can I offer you a couple of suggestions?
(1) Using the short cut keys in KA would also cut down on number of key strokes. Press your desired shortcut (I use CTRL SHIFT N) to create a new alarm) and hey presto up comes the Add New Alarm screen. The hot keys can be set in the preferences screen (see 1.jpg below)

and

(2) In the preferences set it so that new alarms automatically go to the advanced screen. That will also cut down on the number of key strokes.
(See 2.jpg below)

Thanks for the reply.  The short-cut key will help open KA New Alarm faster.  In my case, I use KA a *LOT* - mostly emails to one of 3-4 cells.  A quicker way to send an alarm to Barak (short-cut/menu) would still be quite handy.
