Ability to hide bottom panel with buttons in navigator section

There is a panel at the bottom of navigator section:


I use only mail. I don’t use tasks, calendar, attachments, notes, widgets, contacts.

It would be great to hide this panel to free valuable vertical space in navigator (where mail folders displayed)

Click the three (dots) at the end of Navigation panel. Then remove all other items except mail.
You then end up with (only mail) icon showing and everything else is hidden.




This is not I’m talking about
I propose to hide whole panel, not some buttons

If you then say hid the whole panel in eg: Settings instead of just disabling buttons via Navigation Options, how would users then quickly change / switch to the Calendar, Tasks, Notes etc ?

Still need to then be a (visual quick way) for users to navigate between the various sections if you are going to disable that entire panel. I personally like that quick easy access panel down on the left.

I say about ability to hide, in other words about an option in settings.
This would be useful for those who not using that tools (calendar etc)

In the past, if you removed all the icons from the setting that @cyberzork gave, the whole panel would be removed. But then there was no way for the user to ever get it back without deleting their database and starting over.

Understandably not a desired outcome if the user mistakenly deleted the icons.

So we disabled that.

If the one or two lines it takes up are an issue there are some alternatives:

  1. The More folder allows you to hide unwanted folders, and thus free up real estate so other folders can be seen.
  2. You can change the row height to display more rows in the same space. You will find that in Menu > Settings > Appearance > Lists > Row Dimensions. If you reduce it by even 1 pixel, that should compensate for the space the panel takes without compressing the rows too much.

I think there is a way to way around this undesired effect.

It woul be better to add all the toolls appeared in the bottom panel in tools menu:

If user hides bottom panel in navigator he/she will be able to bring it back using main menu.

No, that would not bring the panel back, it merely opens eM Client in the selected section.
