  1. Fix Comment Via Email

    Make it not post all of the extra email text and hyperlink info in the comment history when responding to a task update via email.

    i.e.:
    9e45View in Flow
    (
    open.getflow.com/c/eJxNkEl…)

    or just reply to this email9e45
    9e45Change notification settings
    (
    open.getflow.com/c/eJxNkMt…)
    if you no longer wish to receive these.9e45

  2. Idle Time

    It would be really handy if we could manually set our desired idle time.

    Quite a few of my coworkers (myself included) at my company have emailed chat notifications turned off because we are regularly away from Flow for more than 5 minutes. If we could set it to 15, 20, 30, etc minutes that would allow us to also receive those types of emailes. Currently, our inbox would be bombarded with a 5 minuted idle time.

  3. Keyboard shortcuts for moving tasks (like Trello)

    It would be really great to have more keyboard shortcuts. Specifically, would *love* to see some shortcuts that enable us to quickly move tasks from section to section in "Sort manually" mode and "Kanban" mode. Trello does this really well - this is the biggest thing I miss from the Trello user experience. Having these shortcuts would also alleviate the current difficulty of moving tasks using the drag-n-drop function, which is downright hard and ineffective sometimes (for tasks and subtasks).

  4. Project Planning - show Team

    Is there a reason why the Team name isn't included in the Project Planning view? We're sometimes using same names for (similar) projects, but can't tell them apart in the Project Planning view.

    It's done in the Calendar view, so why not Project Planning view?

  5. Merge incomplete tasks into one

    It would be very useful to have a way to merge duplicate tasks into each other, link related tasks and otherwise describe task dependencies. The existing task linking feature is nice, but insufficient because it requires more maintenance (tasks should be linked both ways, so people need to remember to comment on both tasks with the relationship to the other), and muddies up the task history (because marking tasks as complete is misleading when the task wasn't actually completed).

  6. see tasks across multiple organizations

    It would be great to have a view where I can see all my tasks across organisations (outside organizations may have assigned me tasks). I work as a freelancer and I'm part of loads of different teams across different organisations, and not being able to see ALL my tasks assigned to me in one place (perhaps as a view option in the dropdown - All Teams / All Organizations etc.?) defeats the object of a task manager and reduces the possibility of using Flow for freelancers. I'm currently on Asana, but would probably come across to Flow if this was…

  7. Remember view / sorting preferences for task screen

    When in the tasks list view, cache / remember my preference to sort by due date (as opposed to always defaulting to by project) - I always immediately change it to by due date.

  8. Chat with people in other workspaces.

    I would love to be able to chat with people in other workspaces within the company without needing to be invited or switching back and forth between different workspaces. If there was a "top level" company space where everyone can easily chat one another, and each department had their dedicated workspaces for project/task management, we would wipe out the need for third-party messaging services (I'm looking at you, Slack).

  10. Add "Show completed tasks" to projects pulldown

    I like the "hide completed tasks" feature as shown in the attached screenshot. I'd like to be able to toggle it to see completed tasks in situ alongside other uncompleted tasks, rather than clicking to view the completed tasks.

  12. Team drop down in Task creation

    It'd be really handy and time saving if when in the task creation tool and when you need to select the Team for the project that a drop down list appears :-)

  14. Emphasis on chat functionality

    We are trying to consolidate the number of collaboration and communication tools we use, so we would like to see a more fully featured chat functionality (ability to change public to private, slack-like integrations). We also think chat is central to getting users adopt a platform (people are drawn to chat more than a task list).

  15. Media Library Idea

    I would really love to see some sort of Media Library implemented so that i could move files from task to task effortlessly. It doesn't have to be anything fancy - maybe just based on Project or Team.

    Teamwork has this functionality, that's how I'm imagining it would function.

  16. prevent my projects being made private

    Other users are able to take shared projects I've created and make them private. It'd be nice to be able to have the project's creator need to sign off on that.

  17. Uncheck all for Workgroups

    First off, thank you so much for adding workgroups to Timelines - that will be so helpful for us managing technical people across different teams. One thing I did notice however is that the "workload" section is very slow. Even when trying to uncheck teams from the list, it freezes up. Also it would be very helpful to have an "uncheck all" feature - i think you used to have that at some point.

    Thanks very much for your feedback :)

    The slow/freezing is something we have also noticed! We have a fix in the works right now. In fact, the code to fix it has been written, but it has yet to be reviewed and approved. But it should be out soon.

    “uncheck all” does sound like it could be handy, we’ll look into when we can fit that into our schedule to add.

  19. Beta version: interface icon not visible

    Hi,

    I just wanted to let you know that the Beta looks interesting, I think we will need some time to learn to use the new structure... but we are welcome for improvment...

    NB: I can't see the icons interface. I joined a screenshot.

    Best continuity,

    Anthony

  20. Contacts! (Not CRM)

    We are REALLY in need of incorporating basic contact lists into Flow. Is there any way to do this, or any plans to incorporate some sort of even basic address book functionality into Flow? NOT CRM! Just basic contacts. It would really make Flow, flow. And a huge time saver from having to keep running outside to 3rd party apps to accomplish this.
