How could we improve Flow?

Auto-Assign Tasks is Unhelpful

Right now - when I create a task, it auto-assigns it to myself. I have to manually click off my name, and then it automatically subscribes me. Which means - every time I "quickly" create a task - I have to click three times to un-assign or re-assign the task. This is cumbersome. I'd suggest automatically assigning & subscribing no-one. Then you can assign people when needed.

Have you tried creating tasks with keyboard shortcuts? Hit enter to create a task, then tab through the fields to reassign or remove people. Alternatively, create tasks from the center pane of Unassigned, and you won’t need to remove the assignee.

    These are good work arounds - but it still doesn't get at the root problem - even if I use Keyboard shortcuts, I'm still required to unassign myself every time. It's better - but still not ideal. I can't imagine that the use-case for task creation would require the largest user base to need to auto-assign tasks to themselves - especially if project managers or creative directors are using this software to communicate with teams.
