Okay have so many issues with the overview and setting it up takes too long ect.

So I sugest that when you enter a fleet, you get an extra tabs (say , up to 3?). These are overviews set up by the FC/boss of the fleet, and auto load when you join the fleet. You would be able to save it for personal use later.

Maybe they could change depending what squad your in?

if your a logi, you have the "logi tab", set up correct for how your FC wants to work ect.

Thoughts?

Yes

Would make finding the primary easier.

Can I paraphrase ....

"I can't set up my overview settings so I want someone else to do it, and when they get it wrong its their fault, not mine"

Why should the FC have to set up multiple overviews, when they are already busy running the fleet?
If the FC is just using saved overview setups, why don't YOU use the same setups ?
Who are you going to blame when the FC gives you the wrong overview setup ?
If overview setups change in different squads, does the squad leader now have responsibility for your overview ?

There's already a mechanism for exporting and importing overview setups, which does everything you need - ie lets someone else set up your overview for you - without screwing you over in a fleet.

Inheriting overview from fleet is probably a bad idea. However, I seem to think I remember hearing about CCP working on making saved overview settings easier to share.

Fleets pop up and are dissolved all the time, and are meant to be extremely temporary. Relying on fleets to share overview settings is probably not the most effective way to do it.

Sharing overview = good, using fleets to do it = bad.

pretty much -- I have seen an awefull lot of cufustion generated becuase fo overview, and this is needlessly complicated. Let make the game act like in a more user friendly way, and allow those few people that REALLY REALLY like to set up overviews (like yourself) to do it!.

Why should the FC have to set up multiple overviews, when they are already busy running the fleet?

they don't HAVE to, I say there should be an option if they WAY to, like boradcasting targets, .. you don't have to do that, you can just say the name on TS/vent.
If the FC is just using saved overview setups, why don't YOU use the same setups ?

YES! this is exatly what I want to do .. but I think it should be "in -eve", . not "hey whats your email address, I will send you the FTP server info". this should be within eve, and seamless. tradeing overview setting should be as easy as tradeing bookmarks (that is another topic)

Who are you going to blame when the FC gives you the wrong overview setup ?

the chinese isk scamer/ RMT folks, .. who else?

If overview setups change in different squads, does the squad leader now have responsibility for your overview ?

Responses in line with text....

There was a good point about maybe IN fleet is not the best place for this, it would be OPTIONAL for he person in the fleet though.

Maybe what I really want is just a more transparent way to setup overview settings. Exporting files (that I am not even sure CCP intended us to transfer to others), emailing them , and importing them is not "in the spirit and intent of the eve universe".
