Feedback from a long-standing Kolab-/Kontact-operator:
---------- Forwarded message ----------
IMHO the core issue with this "prominent" setting is (and always has
been) its label: There is not the slightest hint anywhere in the GUI,
that it deals with the scope of visibility of XFB-/FB-information
I believe it should stay prominently (and separatly) placed, as it
would provide valuable ease of use in many XFB-based use-cases, if
only this setting would be labled with concise wording, so most
users intuitively understand it instead of being misled (which is
currently the case).
It is definitely not a part of the regular IMAP-folder item
(incidence type) properties, due to the aforementioned fact that
it deals with the scope of visibility of XFB-information only.
Hence I believe this setting must not be merged into those IMAP-
folder item specific settings, as this would be mislead users again
to believe the setting would be a property of the IMAP-folder item
(and maybe affect its access rights for others).
But this setting sure has been in dire need of better UI-strings for
