How could we improve Flow?

Move tasks between teams

We really need to be able to *easily* move TASKS between teams - e.g. drag and drop them or select and change the team. This should be able to be locked down by user if they don’t have access to a team - but it’s too easy to create a task in the wrong team and then have to fiddle around to move it

        Thanks Jesse; truly looking forward. How will the moving of tasks between teams be announced when available in January?

        Really a dealbreaker. Impossible now to move easily a task between teams. January last year (18 months ago) the VP of Flow they started designing this feature. 18 months later no update. Flow: please make this happen !

        Setup flow maybe 30 minutes ago. Checked out the slack integration. UI looks great. Found this limitation. Filed in 2013? I'm a startup, so it guts me to say it, but the lack of resources more than the lack of the feature scares me a bit. I know how that fight goes -- you never have resources if people don't chose you because you don't have resources.

        I'll continue our evaluations and check back periodically.

        I'd really like to see this implemented, I can't work out how to move something between teams.

        Admin: What is the update on this? It is now a year after design began and we are still grappling with a simple way to move tasks along.

        Would also like an update on this since design work began a year ago. Right now, the lack of this feature severely impedes are ability to take full advantage of teams.

        Just starting and in the trial period. Also bumped on the need to change tasks assignment between teams. Has this been done? If so, may I suggest that you make it easier to find :)

        Flow - I'm new (trialling software) and this is a major flaw. There has been no update on a fix that I can see on this thread for quite some time. It's obvious it's needed when can we expect a solution please?

        An absolute must !! When architecture finnished their part, the task needs to move on to engineering; this is today not possible (move a task from one team to another). Please Flow, make this a priority.

        My company uses the email to flow feature extensively. We have about 8 departments which are set up as different teams. Our "traffic controller" has all requests auto forwarded to tasks@getflow.com from one email distribution group. Currently this Private Task can only be routed to one Team. Having the ability to move the task to a different team is a very important feature.

        @scott - yep, I'm with you, it's *possible* to achieve the outcome at the moment, but it's not exactly user-friendly... and there's not really a good reason that I can see.
