How could we improve Flow?

provide a field for 'estimated' time.

this would be really helpful for preparing and planning on workload.

    Still hoping to be able to add a time to a task then filter by task times. I ofter use blocks of 2 min, 10 min, 15 min, 20 min, 30 min and 60 min. Any task longer than 60 min can generally be broken into subtasks. I'd love to be able to see all my 2 min tasks to I can just blast through all those in one go. Thanks for listening (again)

    this is critical for a checklist app to be used in professional environment - but if you guys at least added a clear path / easy to use - integration to do so - that would make all the difference.

    I think this is a critical part of making your product have a wider appeal. The ability to manage cost is core focus of project management that is not currently addressed in your platform. Please get this in the works. :)

    Part of the GTD method is to assign estimated time for tasks and subtasks. For example, anything under 2 minutes should be done right away. This is how I always work. Currently I am adding time to the name, but I can't filter by this value or visually see clearly what are shorter or longer tasks. I would add a default colour to the lengths of tasks perhaps. I'd have a quick checkbox for 2 min, 10 min, 30 min 60 min. Any taks longer than 60 min can usually be and should be broken down into subtasks. Thanks for listening!

    One thing I thought was useful in Asana was the ability to add a time amount (often hours) to a given task, for example:

    [1 hr] Do something awesome
    [3 hr] Do another awesome thing

    If you were to highlight multiple lines, you could see a sum of the hours entered within the [] format for the highlighted lines (in the above example, 4 hours). I believe this calculator feature would be nice for many teams.
