To all Z1, Z3 users on the Tizen Community. 
We had suggestions from our users that flash light notification is needed for calls, messages etc.. alerts.

Here is a chance to vote and tell how you want to use the camera flash for notifications.

NOTE:  Few users also suggested that the device should "vibrate" for missed notifications when you pick up the device.  This is already being considered.

If camera flash is used for notification, might be sometimes it is not visible.

Well, I need it should be user configuarable...

Folks, the flash option would be in addition to the Sound+Vibration thats already present.

@Gaurav & Others: When you say "User Configurable" does it mean you want an option that allows user to choose for which alerts camera flash should blink?

Right now Settings->Sounds & notifications->Do not disturb provides user an option to decide which all apps are allowed to "disturb" you with notifications.  Based on your feedback, UX team will consider these additions if its feasible.

Keep these valuable feedback coming though.

User Missing notifications at times because user not paying attention to the phone during those specific times. In that case, providing option of camera flash blink to alerts also can go in vain. Because it can also get unnoticed by the user and unnecessary battery drain. Also, am sure many of us will not be kkeping phones upside down where only when camera flash can be at the top side.

So, my opinion is - This option may not be much useful.

The camera flash is too bright to be used for notification. It will be ugly as an implementation but if that is what is required then at least the camera flash could be toned down so that it looks like notification light. I still think its an unsophisticated solution.
