Currently, the inbox is in a workspace - which means that I have to assign an email to the workspace and then awkwardly move tasks around. I want to be able to easily move tasks from an inbox to wherever they need to be - so having an inbox that all my stuff goes into that's then drag and dropped to the right list/workspace would be great.
While we can see why you’d want to do this, we don’t have plans to create a global inbox.
Add the ability to shift-select or cmd-select multiple tasks and add the same due date and/or tag to all of them.98 votes
We do plan to allow for mass editing of tasks. It may take some time to get there, but we want to do it.
We really need to be able to *easily* move TASKS between teams - e.g. drag and drop them or select and change the team. This should be able to be locked down by user if they don’t have access to a team - but it’s too easy to create a task in the wrong team and then have to fiddle around to move it72 votes
Design is beginning on this next week.
It would be great to get away from the starkness of blue and white. I would love to be able to customize my Groups and even projects by colors. On top of that, customization of task colors or even varied color flags (yellow, red, green) would be nice. I understand that the simplicity of Flow is one of it's differentiators, but every team works differently and sometimes having these customization tools would be highly beneficial.47 votes
With the new Chat functionality, it'd be great to have a chat related to a project (or at least a workspace) - this would allow the team to chat in context not have to go to a different space. Ideally, a third pane or some way of keeping the context would be good (stuffed if I know how you'd implement that...). Our early experimentation with the chat function is that it feels a little disconnected from the projects.
We’d love to bring discussions closer to projects. This is something we’re planning to do. Thanks!
I really miss the Workspace Icons. They made is so much easier to quickly navigate between Workspaces because you could upload a logo. They were visual and made the whole space feel like my own. Now it's way too generic. PLEASE bring back the icons!28 votes
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!
Would be nice to be able to sort by "creation date"23 votes
Currently you can not move a Section into a new Project (acc to Support). Given that Sections are supersets of Tasks, being able to transfer them between projects would be very helpful. Dragging it would probably be the best way to do that.22 votes
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!
Generally when I am scanning the dashboard, it is to keep up to date with what others on my team are doing. It would be really helpful ti have a filter which does all activity except my own for that use case.21 votes
We’ve started work on a dashboard that is better at helping you process the tasks that need your attention. A bonus is that it not longer repeats what you know you said.
Being able to associate a colour to a project would make the long list of projects down the left hand side of the screen look a bit less obtrusive.21 votes
I think it would be a good idea to have a option to display in the main task view the subtasks of each task just below each one, indented end with a smaller font and checkbox. This could be even an expandable list when clicked or hovered the task. For me this improvement would provide a better view of how complicated the task are and how much work remains to be done.
To visualize what I have in mind I attach a file with a simple and fast draw. I believe you will do it in a more elegant way.20 votes
We don’t have any plans to enhance subtasks in such a way at this point in time.
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.19 votes
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.
Unfortunately, now that tasks always have a prefix of "Private Tasks" in the calendar view, the view has become very unreadable.
Also, the requirement to always have a project with each tasks slows down entering tasks significantly.
These changes should be reverted.19 votes
I see what you’re saying – the project name (Private Task) listed with the task can look cluttered. The problem is that not including the project name can lead to confusion too. This is something we are not likely to change anytime soon but it does make sense to take a look at it in the future.
Flow currently support time tracking via Harvest. I would like to see integration with other time-tracking services, such as Paymo, Timecamp, or Toggl. Or better yet, build time tracking into Flow as a native feature, so that another tool is not required.18 votes
We don’t currently have plans to integrate with more time tracking apps, or to build a native tool, but we’ll definitely talk it over for future updates.
When pasting multiple lines in a list, create one task per new line. Makes it easier to add items from an IM conversation, email thread, or importing from other project management tools17 votes
We don’t have any near future plans for this specific feature.
I am not sure why but I don't see any subtasks I complete in the dashboard. Because we use the subtask feature a lot, it's a shame not to see it in the dashboard.16 votes
We don’t currently have any plans to include subtask activity in the Dashboard.
It would be nice if the default due date would be set to today or tomorrow. This would force the user to specify a date if not today and it saves time when adding a lot of tasks with unspecified due dates. In the current setting there is always a risk that an important task ends up in the pile at the end of your list because you forgot to specify the due date.
Would be even better if you can set your own default due date; always tomorrow / always today / always one week ahead / etc.16 votes
Pasting unformatted text in to the OSX app doesn't seemed to be respected (i.e. nothing happens). Also the general formatting of text is a nightmare. Can't seem to indent bullet points to multiple levels for example. The pop-up format bar only appears when text is highlighted which seems awkward.16 votes
Hey, trying to get to the bottom of this. I just tested pasting into the Mac app, and it worked. Could you provide more details about that?
As for multiple indents, that’s not something we plan to offer with the visual editor—I would consider using bolding to separate sections or switching to the markdown editor (via Account Preferences > Text Editor)
Is there anything else that isn’t working or that you’d like to see? Thanks!
The Harvest integration works seamlessly, but I don't have a way to refer to time that may have been added to a task in the past, without opening Harvest and clicking on the project or date.
I need to see time added to Harvest as a comment in the Flow task, e.g. "Harvest time tracking for [Harvest Client], [Harvest Project], [Harvest Task], [HH:MM] logged."16 votes
This is a good idea. We’ll keep it in mind. Thanks!
Right now - when I create a task, it auto-assigns it to myself. I have to manually click off my name, and then it automatically subscribes me. Which means - every time I "quickly" create a task - I have to click three times to un-assign or re-assign the task. This is cumbersome. I'd suggest automatically assigning & subscribing no-one. Then you can assign people when needed.16 votes
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.
