  1. Manage tags menu - add, edit, delete tags

    Would be nice to have the option to manage tags more actively. A separate page or sidebar that allows you to add, edit, or delete unused tags would be ideal.

  2. provide a field for 'estimated' time.

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

    While we don’t exactly plan to add time estimates, we are interested in helping teams plan workload and estimate the size of tasks. Keep an eye out for updates :)

  3. Multiple language support

    We are located in Germany and we have Consultants throughout Europe. Translations would be very nice!

    While we would love to offer localization in future updates, we’re still a small team that is unable to offer support in those languages as well. We will absolutely revisit this feature when we have the resources needed to make it really amazing.

  4. Calendar events

    I'd like to enter dates into the calendar without it being a task. Will that be possible?

    This is definitely a part of our vision. I’m hoping we can get to it next year. So many things to do!

  5. Guest/Client Pricing

    We're a team of 10, and have about 25 - 40 clients at a time. Would love to invite our clients to the projects, but usually, clients have multiple stakeholders and it becomes price prohibitive. I would love to see an updated pricing structure that doesnt discourage organizations to utilize the tool to its full potential. I understand that seats are a common method for pricings, since when the tool is meant for internal teams, the a seat usualyally equals a salary, and therefore is a good metric for what the organization can afford. However, the number of clients doesnt…

  6. Add optional Release / Version tag to tasks

    We use Flow for software development and the team love it a lot. There is only one feature missing for now to assign Release / Version number to tasks. It would be really great to group by that tag so it will be visible what task has been done for particular release. Thanks.

  7. Add Custom Fields to Tasks

    I would LOVE to be able to add custom fields to task items so I can track: Set Budget, Estimated Time, Actual Time, Completed Date (to compare performance of team against Due Date, Team Rate ($), Invoice Rate ($), Proft/Loss, etc. Then also the ability to do simple equations (to calculate est time vs actual time, profit/loss, etc.

    We don’t have any plans to do anything like this anytime soon, but we can certainly recognize its utility, especially if you could filter and sort by these values as well.

  8. Save searches

    Would be great to be able to save searches to the favorites section.

    Also more advanced searching:

    - Searching for things NOT tagged (or with a specific tag)
    - Search for sections

    Thanks

  9. Themes

    While I find the current blue/white Flow theme to be very simple, it might be nice to provide alternative color schemes (still clean and slick, though, of course). Or, maybe allow users to set their own colors to certain parts of the app using specific color codes (e.g., sidebar background #FFFFFF).

    No plans for this one. Hey, who knows, maybe we’ll work this in during an exploratory hack day.

  10. Assign project owner/lead

    When creating a new project, it makes sense (and other apps such as Asana support the ability to) designating a Project Owner, who is responsible for the completion of the project (and potentially for outlining the required tasks and assigning them to the relevant people). However, we can't seem to find a method of doing something similar in Flow.

    Are we missing something, or thinking about things in the wrong way? Any suggestions you have would be appreciated.

    This is something we’ve talked about both as a team and the makers of this product. As it stands, with project notes at your disposal, you can mention the project owner in the note for the project. I’m wondering if there is anything more you’d want from a project owner? What would help them do their job better?

  11. A view for the workload of organizations

    Our project managers often ask the question on what a person in our organization is working on and what to prioritise next. In the calendar we can see the tasks of a person that has a due date but there isn't any view of all the assigned task of a person. Basically it's the same functionality as "My Tasks" but for each persons of your team. The best would be to have this view on Overview to see all tasks across all teams.

    Thanks.

  12. Numbering Tasks - Templates

    My team uses a lot of templates. For example, when we get a new client, this list of tasks needs to be completed. The order of these tasks is KEY in successful completion of the process. It would be nice if we could number the tasks in the list and they would stay in order.

    Right now, we simply add numbers to the title of the task (1.A, 1.B, etc.) but then as soon as we change the order in which the list is sorted, they become totally out of order. Another issue with this manual method is that when…

    We don’t plan to prefix numbers in any task view, but the “List, manually” view maintains its sort. So if you need to see the project in sequence, that’s the way to go. Thanks for your suggestion!

  13. Resource utilization

    I would like a task to have a duration/level of effort estimate and then be able to see a view/report that shows resource utilization. This would stop me having to use a different tool (ResourceGuru)!

    I'd like to delete some organizations that I don't use anymore.

    Thank you.

  16. Gmail Gadget

    Create a Gmail gadget that allows you to create a task directly from your Gmail interface. We were able to do that with a CRM solution called WorkEtc. There were buttons at the bottom of every email, that allowed you to assign any email to a Task, List, Workspace (different terms in Worketc, but same concept). This allows for a complete and thorough task list.

    Right now, I find myself starring emails as a task reminder to follow up, and also having to check Flow for other tasks. It redundnat to create a task in flow to respond to an…

  18. Mention tasks in chat

    My favorite part of being able to create a task in chat is that the task appears right in the conversation.

    It would useful for my team to be able to mention tasks in the chat view for tasks that already exist.

    We were just talking about this the other day, and plan to take a crack at it some time this year. This would be quite handy.

    This is not planned, but it’s possible to see kanban view on your iPad. Log into Flow from Safari, and “Request desktop site” via the share sheet.

  20. Don't clear tasks for everyone on the team - leave it up to individual preference

    Me and everyone on my team would prefer if clearing the tasks wouldn't clear them for everyone, only for the user that cleared them. Sometimes we have QA checking the completed tasks before clearing them, and it already happened multiple times that someone cleaned the tasks to have a better overview for themselves and didn't expect them to be cleared for everybody.
