  1. Private tasks not in a workspace

    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.
    Cheers

    • Mass task editing

      Add the ability to shift-select or cmd-select multiple tasks and add the same due date and/or tag to all of them.

        We do plan to allow for mass editing of tasks. It may take some time to get there, but we want to do it.

      • Move tasks between teams

        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 it

        • 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.

          • Time Tracking Integration

            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.

            • 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.

                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!

                • Avoid tasks to inherit "by default" owner, subscribers, and tags by the parent task.

                  Having sub task inherit "by default" owner, subscribers, and tags by the parent task is a real pain because this "over proliferate" tasks assigned (or subscribed) to people.

                  I'm sure many people has checked "Assigned to Me" view after the latest release and found much much more tasks than expected (that in fact are "just subtasks").

                  This is extremely inconvenient.

                  We think that assign a sub-tasks to other people is a common case, but at the same way most of the sub tasks usually should stay on the task owner.
                  Make it explicit is redundant, and cause the problem above,…

                  • Chat rooms related to projects

                    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.

                    • Require Manual Clearing of Catch Up Tasks

                      Our team absolutely loves the "Catch Up" feature except for one thing...

                      Imagine if your email inbox automatically archived messages that you had read, or opened one time. This is exactly how GetFlow has approached the Catch Up "Unread" section. This one flaw seems to completely destroy an otherwise phenomenal feature.

                      When a task is engaged with at all, it automatically goes to the "Read" section. This is a nightmare for our project managers who may quickly glance through their unread messages, but not have time at the moment to reply to.

                      Please keep "Unread" messages "Unread" until they are…

                        • Enable moving a Section into a new Project

                          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.

                            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!

                          • Stop requiring a project for all tasks

                            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.

                              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.

                            • Dashboard: Filter for all activity except my own

                              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.

                                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.

                                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 tools

                                • Subtask below each task

                                  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.

                                      can you please provide an option so the task calendar (monthly view) can be printed out?

                                      • Collapse Sections

                                        One of the reasons i leave ASANA is because they cant provide this simple feature. If a project have 10 sections with 30 tasks, it is unmanageable.

                                        • Display Subtasks in Dashboard

                                          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.
