How can we improve the Windows platform?

Enhance Microsoft.Phone.Scheduler Alarm and Reminder classes

The Alarm and Reminder classes in Microsoft.Phone.Scheduler are very limiting and do not allow for any customization. Ideally these classes would be extended to accept a UserControl object that would be shown instead of the standard Title. The UserControl should run in the context of the application that created the Alarm or Reminder, and as such would have access to the appropriate view models. From there the application could be fully launched if desired.

        I agree. If you have the alarm snooze button go off it should at least have a way to remove your scheduled alarm. It is not a good ui to have to press cancel and then another button to remove the scheduled event. Thanks
