  1. Move groups between teams

    We are using the group feature to group smaller projects that belong to a bigger, umbrella project. We initially started with several teams, but ended up having to do a lot of work to move our groups from those extra teams back to one team as we found that moving tasks between teams wasn't possible. The ability to move and duplicate an entire group to a new team would be very helpful! Thank you!

  2. Out of date info

    Since it's a web app (yay for accessibility.. boo for everything else), I often find that when I switch back to it's tab it's now out of date. Most confusing the next morning, when the calendar is off by a day. Usually has be planning an easy day because I'm ahead of schedule and ends with a panic.

    Auto refresh on a 3600s timeout? Please?

  3. Show parent task name in sub-task notifications.

    We often use sub-tasks to just list steps in a common process like: proofread article, make final revisions, review video, etc.

    When notifications for these sub-tasks come up there isn't any detail about the parent task, so it's hard to understand context. This forces us to rename all sub-tasks with redundant info from the parent task - otherwise staff have to click every single notification just to determine context. I'm hoping you can change it so notifications include a reference to the parent task to avoid this redundancy.

  4. Provide Video Collaboration Support

    It would be great if flow allowed team members to do video and/or audio conferencing with each other

    It would! Judging by the difficulty that many companies have faced building a solution for video and audio conferencing, the likely solution here would be for us to integrate with a third party product.

  5. Pricing model

    Pricing seems a bit ridiculous . If it is a pay per user pricing model and the "tiered" levels are 3 and 5 and I have 2 or 4 people I am forced to pay for an extra person? Rethink this or you will continue to lose new startups to other tools.

  6. Completely hide the "Add a project description" section

    The "Add a project description" is taking a lot of space and is unnecessary for me. On the web version you can "Hide details" but it only slides to the left. On the mac app the "Hide details" doesn't work at all. Suggestion: Hide completely that section.

    Hi! If you haven’t already, we encourage you to check out the new Flow Beta – we’ve made a change to project descriptions there to completely hide them and keep them hidden :) If you’re interested in trying out the beta, instructions on how to become a beta user are here: https://www.getflow.com/support/account/flow-beta and instructions on how to see the new Flow and a quick overview of what has changed can be found here: https://www.getflow.com/guides/new-flow-beta

  7. Repeating tasks based on completion date

    It would be nice to have the ability to have a task repeat xx days/weeks/months *after* completion rather than every xx days.

  8. Forget This "Edit" and "Save" Business!

    The right hand column should be immediately ready to edit your tasks without clicking "edit" and "save" once you're finished. It's a waste of time. If I click on a task to twirl out the right column, it's because I'm already prepared to make an edit or add a comment. "save" is silly to me because this is not some long text document which I can accidentally loose - I'm switching subscribers! If I accidentally to the wrong person its an easy fix. Thanks!

  9. Comment Read Receipts

    It would be nice to know who has seen my entry, just like Facebook allows administrators to be able to see who has seen the story.

  10. Option to delete dashboard activity

    Ex: when I tweak names of tasks, for example, I don't want that cluttering up my activity history. Option to delete these from dashboard history so it's less cluttered and items remain relatively equal in importance.

    We will not allow people to tamper with task, list, and workspace activity feeds, but may play with different activity views on the Dashboard, including searching and filtering.

  11. Offset Projects under Groups

    Is it possible to offset the projects underneath the groups? It would make it easier to look at. At the moment, when groups are expanded, the projects within it are aligned with the group itself, making it hard to differentiate all the items on the projects sidebar (and only being able to use the expanded icon to be able to tell). Attached a file with what I’m talking about. Thanks!

  12. Task Time to Complete

    - Give Tasks "Hours". (eg. 4 hours to complete).
    - Custom Configuration setting for "How many work hours in a day": 8 hours

    When the total number of hours of the tasks in each day are over the configured limit, the day is flagged as over capacity

  13. Vocal memo

    It would be super to add the possibility of attaching vocal memo in a note or even as a comment... When you work a lot on a mobile sometimes few seconds of audio save many minutes of typing on a cellphone... as well as on a computer if you have to describe something more technical it saves a lot of time...

    Thank you for considering this idea :)

  14. Project comments

    Hi, it should be possible to comment on entire projects, not only on single tasks.

  15. Trigger a flow when an email is sent to an Office 365 group mailbox

    Trigger a flow when an email is sent to an Office 365 group mailbox.

    This will be helpful to:
    - Save attachments sent to a group to team document library or one drive (something like incoming emails on SharePoint on prem)
    - Automate creation of events based on email sent to a group mailbox

    Custom views for Guest users are not in the books. We’ll continue to watch this though.

  17. Attachment icon in task

    Show an attachment icon similar to the link icon or tag icon when an attachment is included with a task.

  19. Mark a Project as Completed

    It would be nice if you could tick a project as 'completed'. Archive doesn't really make sense.

  20. Custom Domain

    As a company we should have the ability to create our own custom mapping for flow.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Beyond the team URL we provide you, there aren’t plans to allow for custom domains quite yet.
