    @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.

    Ben commented  · 

    ...and the function is back.... thanks for getting that back in there.

    Ben commented  · 

    .....and unless I'm going crazy you can no longer move tasks between workspaces with the new release (ticket logged with support)

    @Luke and @Jake....

    You guys are killing me. "privacy and billing issues"? Really??

    OK, let's assume there are - then maybe you can help me with this:
    I am in the process of recruiting a new team member.
    I have a workspace called "Recruiting" which is locked down to me and the other business owner.
    Each new role is a project in the workspace.
    I want to quickly forward all the applications that come through to my inbox and then move them to the correct workspace.
    At the moment, that all go to my general company workspace - and to move them I have to fartarse about and stick them in a project, move the project, blah blah blah...

    If you're not going to implement easy movement of tasks, then you need to have some way of capturing tasks OUTSIDE of a workspace and having them easily moved.

    FLOW indicates that workspaces are things like "departments" or areas in the business - tasks DO move between departments of a business... Please consider the scenario whereby your customers are using flow INTERNALLY not just for client projects...

    Come on... help me out here...

    B.

    Ben commented  · 

    Darn. OK, so how about being able to have a GROUP that can be locked down to individuals and the tasks inside it too? The usage I'm trying to get is to be able to create tasks related to, say, team performance management, without exposing to everyone and without having it in a separate workspace. Other examples are: financial reporting tasks, personal tasks, management tasks, etc.
    Cheers
    Ben

    We don’t plan to create a separate desktop app for chat, though we do generally aim for multiple instances of Flow open on the same computer to stay in sync. We do have plans to more deeply integrate chat and tasks, including improvements to notifications so that nothing gets missed.

    I agree with Joel - we are putting more and more into Flow; which seemed like such a good idea, however it's getting pretty darn complex and very difficult to review tasks, especially from a management perspective.

    Yes, I second that - releasing the functionality with only an "Add New Team" type use case is a bit half-baked; seriously, as long as there's not subscription attached to it it should be really easy to delete. This becomes a problem when you log out and back in as I, for one, end up with a blank screen on a team that I set up to test out the functionality.

    I'd love to suggest that you really should have the basic create/delete functionality for any new stuff you add it (cf. similar, Chat Rooms - you can delete but can't reinstate)

    We plan to work on this. It might be helpful to talk to some of you about it, so we’ll be reaching out at some point in the next little while.

    Ben commented  · 

    @Cyrus - when you say "until we add dedicated templating tools" any indicators when that may be? :)

    Ben commented  · 

    The other thing to consider with the current "Duplicate" function (which we use for project templates) is that you lose all those notes that you may have added to the tasks - for example, we have a set of tasks that we duplicate for new products which includes a "task" for linking to our purchase order dashboard - if I duplicate this I lose the link.

    Thanks for the feedback! For the time being, Workspaces will remain as is but we are planning on reviewing the comments and feedback we’ve received about the new update and this will receive point will definitely receive some attention. We will keep you posted!

    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.

    Ben commented  · 

    This would be pretty darn helpful... At the moment the chat and tasks are too disconnected.

    If you do delete a task, it is available to you for 30 days to retrieve information. Just FYI!

    We’d love to bring discussions closer to projects. This is something we’re planning to do. Thanks!

    We are planning to make it much easier to quickly enrich your tasks with details, directly from the task title input in the task form and quick task bar, using the same syntax we use with emailing tasks to Flow.

    We have some really big and unique plans for this I have been excited about for a while. Hoping this will be our next big project.

    Ben commented  · 

    Hi Cyrus,
    The kanban update is neat but it doesn't really help with protruding a list of tasks across multiple projects. Are you guys still planning on a further updates for this?
    Cheers
    Ben

    No plans to add this yet. Working around this basically requires doing a search before adding the task.
