Update the Sync setup flow at this website: https://projects.invisionapp.com/share/3QBUUTKA#/screens Screens include: 1. Set up ("Pair this device") 2. Pair this device 3. Sync Now 4. Disconnect this device 5. Add another device ("Pair a device")
Based on the feedback from 02/04 mtg: Updated flow for sync: http://invis.io/X2BV91JE Changed the term from "Pair this device" to "Set up sync"; Using "Connect" instead of "Pair" for actions in Setup; Added strings for new users who don't have sync account
Yuan could I get some new mockups for this?
I don't mind taking this after my current iteration story (bug 831614), but I don't think this has to do with auto setup sync from desktop which it is linked to in bug 831614. Can we move this to another story? I would move it to bug 831615 but it is a p3.
I think you're right that this work item is blocking the wrong story. I've moved it to Bug 831615 - Story - Set up Sync from Metro Firefox

What should happen to this bug now that is no longer blocking Bug 831615?
I'll just throw it in v2 triage for now
