  1. Offline mode - especially in the app.

    I live on planes without wifi. I'd love to be able to at least view existing, mark completed and add tasks while offline. When online, all the syncing and delegation happens. Please!!

    • Task reminders

      There are important (flagged) tasks and there are due tasks. But there also are important tasks, that have a due date.

      I would love to get specifically notified about tasks that are important _and_ due today. I don't need a notification on this unimportant task, which is due today, but that I don't really care about. But there are these critical tasks, which are so important, you should not forget them. But you do, unfortunately.

      I'd like to make sure I won't. So it would be awesome to get a little notification (by email, iPhone app, or whatever) on the…

        We plan on solving the problem of knowing when to work on something. Daily and weekly planning is on our roadmap, and that will help you stay on top of upcoming tasks.

      • Project Templates

        It would be awesome if projects could be saved as a template for future use. For instance, anytime we run a sale or promotion the same tasks are repeated for all of our team members. So maybe a drop down when you click to create a new project you could select “from template” then “title of saved project"

        Currently you can create projects and duplicate them the only issue is the templates we’ve created are always in everyones current tasks lists making them cluttered.

        • Smart syntax for task rows, task form (@assign, #tag, etc)

          First of all, I love love the new look & feel, I love having the task view on the right side, and I love having different workspaces. Bravo!

          Here are a couple features that I would have loved to see come along with this update:

          The ability to assign tasks to people on my team using the "@" symbol within the title. Maybe if you have more than one person the first one is the one assigned and the others are just subscribers...

          The same thing goes for using the "#" character and creating tags. Creating tags should be much…

            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.

          • Dependant tasks

            Our team has too many unactionable tasks in our Teama because they are dependant upon other tasks being completed!

            teamwork.com has the amazing ability to create "dependancies" for tasks (though their implementation is much more clunky than I'm sure Flow could do it). What they do is make the task uncheckable until the primary task is first completed. I think you should take this a step further and move the dependent task out of view (maybe grayed out at the bottom of the list).

            • Looping in non-Flow users to tasks

              Sometimes you want to assign a task to a person that is not using flow. You do not want to invite that person as they might not work that much with you. But you want to assign one task to them.

              It would be great, if you could assign Tasks to "email addresses" and those people have the possibility to comment and check off the tasks without creating a flow account and without logging in. They just click on a link in their email message, review the task and later check it off with the same link.

              • Private Tasks

                There are numerous times daily when I want to assign one person a task without them seeing the rest of the tasks on a list (often because it's beyond their pay grade or there is confidential information shared.) But I can't, so I end up having to create list after list based on who's allowed to see that list (often one list for one person?!) rather than being able to keep lists project-oriented or categorical. This creates WAY TOO MUCH confusion within an organization and flies in the face of simple group and list structures. My people end up not…

                • Zapier integration so we can move tasks in from other systems without programming

                  Would be great to be able to route tasks in from Basecamp, Google tasks, CRM, Box.com and all the other places that feed us tasks. Zapier integration or maybe Piesync would accomplish that, thus making Flow the authoritative “task hub” on our team.

                  • Option to automatically subscribe to all tasks

                    We are using Flow to keep our organization notified and on the same page for the various projects that we share.

                    Currently members do not receive notifications unless each individual subscribes to each task.

                    This requires MUCH fiddling and paying attention to stay on top of things to make sure you are subscribed to everything.

                    Making this worse:
                    1. You can't subscribe at the list level, you have to subscribe to each task individually
                    2. You can't subscribe a team or group of people, each person has to be entered individually
                    3. You can't select multiple tasks at once and…

                    • Create an Easy Import from CSV

                      Many task programs have an import/export feature. I have not been able to find one here. An easy import feature would give users incentive to move from other platforms (RTM, Google, etc) I currently have hundreds of notes that have been sitting in a file on my computer. If I were to be able to import them they could turn into tasks. I am not willing to do it one at a time. Too busy.

                      • Custom Today View (Marking tasks for "Today" or "Working on")

                        Maybe I haven't discovered how to do this on the new Flow Beta, but here is something I have always wanted.

                        Because Flow doesn't have a "Today" concept, I manually flag tasks I need to work on today, and so I am always using the "Flagged" view. I also have lots of items that might become due today as well, but they live under "Upcoming", and I rather work from one view, so I then have to manually flag them so they are seen under "Flagged".

                        It would be nice for an option when assigning a task a date, to…

                          Would love to have a Kanban view for Project Groups in which each card shown is a Project rather than a specific task. That way you could get a high level overview of what phase(s) each project is in without having to look at a huge list of individual tasks.

                              I'm not asking for a complete API. Just send a POST/GET request when a task is created, changed or deleted. That would make possible for many developers integrate with other solutions.

                              Just to name it: Slack (witch you at Metalabs are familiar, i think) has a PERFECT api and so easy integration. Why don't you bring the same to Flow?

                                  We don’t have plans to turn tags into a manageable collection of options that can be edited or deleted. As it stands now, tags disappear from auto-completion when there are no longer any open tasks with those tags.

                                  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!

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

                                    Thank you.

                                    • Colour coding tasks and/or projects.

                                      In month-view, tasks for whole team could be easily distinguishable.

                                      • 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.

                                          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
