Find features and requested changes to the Home dashboard and settings

Creating an update that will allow the time to be constantly on the dashboard.

When you are on the dashboard it would be nice to have the clock displayed on the dashboard for a quick reference to the time instead of trying to search around to your computer, cell phone or any other method. Having something as simple as a clock on the dash board would be really convenient.

    How many clock's do you need? We have this already and yes it might not be permanent but if your looking at a clock permanently your not playing are you? So why not just look at a clock?

    The reason why this is a bad idea is for people with plasma TVs. They would literally burn their tv after a while...

    Even once the clock/battery indicator fades away, you just need to press the home button for it to show up again. Not a huge deal.

    I was wondering this as well, I discovered that pressing the home button while on the home screen does this (as well as the controller battery.) Having this just be permanently on would be nice.

    a timer/ alarm also would be good. as an optional transparent tile that would sit in the corner whilst playing.

    Maybe time as an option to display on the home screen.

    There is a simple way to get the time on the xbox now. A constant time would be unwelcome to plenty of people as well.

    Hey there Lostinfamily~

    Thanks for the post! For now, you can make the time appear in the lower right corner of the dashboard by tapping the Xbox button on any controller (this will also show you the battery life of the controller on which you pressed the button).

    Hope this helps!
