  1. Extend Focus Mode to Holiday Mode

    I have a little feature request torwards focus mode. We are a company that considers it paramount that our employees can shut down completely from work while they are in holidays.

    So we would love to see the focus mode extended to be also a holiday mode. For this to happen we would need to features:

    1. Instead of max 8 hours it should be possible to set focus for days or weeks
    2. When someone sets me as the owner of the task while I am in focus mode there should be an alert "user not available for assignements…

    • Time information at card/task and global levels

      It would be incredibly helpful if we could input a per-card Time estimate. So Task A might be projected to take 5 hours, for example. And we could easily see this field on the card in Kanban view

      The next step would be to get a global view of Total estimated time assigned to each team member, or each project.

      • 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.

        • Add task to (selected/all)

          I have much duplication in my job. For instance we want to on-board all of our customers in the same way to ensure a consistent approach. To do this I will create a template project with some basic tasks I need to complete for all new customers during the on-boarding process.

          This works very well however things change and my and my team learn new things during this process that would benefit future customers during their on-boarding process. This usually involves the need to add a new task to the template and often the need to replicate that task to…

          • Better Text Editor

            Flow seems to mimic most of the task functionality of Asana, but Asana's text editor works much better.

            I don't like the double-spacing required in Flow. And it's kind of annoying that opening/closing the text editor changes the display within the task. It's a much easier experience to keep the UI entirely static like Asana does.

            • Make Slack useful, period, by not having to tag team or project as required parameters

              Currently, to me slack integration is pointless. Or at least project linking. Sure I can get updates on progress, but only one way. I cannot send information to flow without knowing all kinds of information I'd need from the front-end UI anyways. So im just wasting time since there is no way Ill remember project name exactly.

              • Beta Feedback

                1. Blue "Beta Feedback" button does not work. Access this through the more dropdown menu.
                2. Does Flow support Google Calendar sync? That is, I'm sure it supports sending data to Google Calendar, but does it sync so that when you add in Google Calendar it will go to Flow and vice versa, like competitors like Asana support?
                3. The purple "..." in top left seems very out of place. That is it draws a lot of attention visually. I would suggest the traditional method of having the users photo in a circle show there.
                4. Most interface elements seem…

                • When tasks are emailed to Flow you need to make it possible to change the Team it's allocated against

                  When tasks are emailed to Flow you need to make it possible to change the Team it's allocated against - this is so frustrating that it cannot do this! A vital flaw. Can it be fixed?

                  • Excel integration

                    It would be great to be able import an existing project in Excel (potentially exported from other program's or platform's format) into Flow. Would need a mapping mechanism of Excel fields to FLOW fields. and allow for multiple layers of subtasks as my projects typically have a three-layer structure.

                    • Get the number of files on a OneDrive folder

                      The idea is to have a folder with pending file to approve so that the person in charge of those files receives an email reminding him that there are still documents to view.

                      • WYSIWIG Editor Glitches

                        Glitches in WYSIWIG editor. When I go to add things and try to select an area to bold, it doesn’t always work and I have to try a few times or reposition my cursor.

                        It is also having issues when I try to copy and cut and repaste. It basically just doesn’t always cut and then doesn’t repaste at all so I have to copy it into an email or something and then copy and repaste back into Flow.

                        • Billable / Not billable tasks or work

                          For project management, it would be useful to be able to define if tasks are billable or not.

                          Furthermore, it would be great to be able to report billable work by project, time and/or user.

                          This might be done with custom fields too, if they were considered.

                          • Bring chat and Task apps together

                            It would be great if the chat and task apps were together as one app. Switching from task and chat apps is time consuming. Also, the task app could be make more user friendly, like using the top and bottom as navigation bars instead of moving side bars.

                                    • Hyperlink

                                      I'd love to see the entire hyperlink within comments. I do like it's shorten version but if I expand the task, I would want to see the entire hyperlink. Often, my needs are to copy and paste to another item and currently I need to right click and copy entire link. If any solve is in the works, it would be really great if there were options. Even better, I would like to see this as an option within preferences... "display fully hyperlinks" or "display shortened hyperlinks"

                                      • Group together multiple notifications on Android

                                        Each notification from GetFlow shows up as a separate icon and notification on Android, requiring me to clear tens of notifications several times a day to keep my notification bar and panel from being completely dominated by these tiny notifications. As per the Android design guides, notifications from the same app shouls group when there are more than four. Android system is supposed to group them itself if the app doesn't do it, so I wonder how/why/if the GetFlow devs broke this built-in functionality somehow? I'd like my notifications bar back, please. In the meantime I have disabled all mobile…

                                        • Improve the "View Completed Tasks" option

                                          Currently, if we manually clear completed tasks, and then later click on "View Completed Tasks", they just show up in an unorganized list by themselves. We'd like to be able to view them in-line where they were before they were manually cleared (but still "completed"). That way we can see where they previously fit in with the remaining open tasks (basically, it would just "undo" the clear completed tasks).
