This is important to us. We’re gonna do it.
We are a nonprofit with a team of 10 staff who work with hundreds of clients and volunteers. Would be great to use Flow with/for them, but cannot even begin to consider paying for them.
We have some short term changes and long term changes in store for this. Stay tuned.
This isn’t a feature that’s on our radar just yet, so thanks for the feedback! In the meantime, one easy way to move sections and/or the tasks in those sections over to new projects is to duplicate the project. This will carry over all the sections, tasks, and task assignees, but not due dates or comments. If you find yourself using the same sections over and over again, it might be helpful to create a project that functions just as a sections template. That way, when you need to create new projects that use those sections, you just need to duplicate the template and start adding tasks to the pre-populated sections. This article will walk you through the steps: https://www.getflow.com/support/projects/duplicating-projects/
Hopefully this will help a bit!
Have you tried creating tasks with keyboard shortcuts? Hit enter to create a task, then tab through the fields to reassign or remove people. Alternatively, create tasks from the center pane of Unassigned, and you won’t need to remove the assignee.
We’ve got plans for this. Start dates first!
This is a huge need for many org's. It helps create momentum toward projects being completed as accountability is shared.
This isn’t on our roadmap just yet, but we’re definitely interested in making it easier to loop in non-Flow users in the future.
PUHLEEZE reconsider implementing this. There are tons of org's like us out there that work with tons of volunteers who do not warrant having a Flow account because their use is so piecemeal and occasional... and many, like ours, are nonprofit and cannot afford to add them.
We don’t have any near-future plans for this.
UGH! Reconsider please! It ensures the end user must overcomplicate things and create projects that aren't projects. It isn't nonprofit friendly. It means little administrative control of who sees what, which may be necessary for scrum people, (who could keep it everyone-sees-it), but not for many org's.
Beautiful! (re considering this!) I can't imagine this not being markedly important for any organization who wants real collaboration that is both SIMPLE and CONFIDENTIAL (esp those who work with volunteers). PLEASE implement this!Scott shared this idea ·
We plan to add this, probably around the time we add start dates to tasks. Still we’ve got a bit of heavy lifting to do elsewhere before we get here.
Would be helpful for nonprofits that work with lots of volunteers who have limited amount of time available and choose tasks from a project list. Would also dovetail well with your plans to allow a non-assignable task. Would help people know what to do.
Almost done here, this will be available in January.
I hate to sound like a punk, but... seriously, how is this not possible and "not planned"? Moving Projects between workspaces is clunky enough, but how can I not merely type in a field in Edit mode to change the Workspace for a particular task? I know it's possible when creating a task from the "Overview" Workspace. How many organizations don't DAILY need to move tasks between workspaces, i.e. departments and teams? So we have to either go to a new workspace and create a new task or create a "Tasks to Move" project in every single workspace?! That. Is. Absolutely. Silly. Sorry to sound practically vitriolic. I'm not truly and largely upset, in the whole scheme of things. This isn't a dealbreaker, but it seems like Collaborative Task Management 101 that it should be possible. And this only has 38 votes?! Ok, rant over... I'll let democracy take its course.
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.
I assumed this was an option and tried it the other day. This should happen. This is one of Remember The Milk's killer features. Would save everyone time. This is the sorta thing you gotta do if you're gonna catch GTD and lifehacking types.
We do not have any current plans to enhance our repeating task functionality in the near future.
We would like to see the ability to repeat after a certain number of days/months/etc. AFTER a task is completed, i.e., when completed, repeat after 7 days.
