  1. 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,…

    • Locking Due Dates

      It would be nice to be able to lock a due date so only the creator of the task or Organization Owners can adjust it. I know that if someone changes the date after it's set it will log the change and display but it would be nice to have a locking feature!

      • Subtask organization in "assigned to me"

        Hey I noticed that the new rules for subtasks has changed the way that you can view things in the "assigned to me'' section. There is no way to collapse the subtasks in that view. It is really frustrating. That is the section I mainly use to manage my daily tasks and it's now flooded with subtasks that are seemingly not even listed near their corresponding main tasks. Can you guys change that to be similar to how it works in calendar view? Thanks.

          We’re working on a solution for making this more clear. Because parent task owners can be different from subtask owners we’re unable to nest subtasks in this view. But we think we’ve got a tweak that’ll make this thing a bit easier to parse. Hang tight.

          • Guest/Client Pricing

            We're a team of 10, and have about 25 - 40 clients at a time. Would love to invite our clients to the projects, but usually, clients have multiple stakeholders and it becomes price prohibitive. I would love to see an updated pricing structure that doesnt discourage organizations to utilize the tool to its full potential. I understand that seats are a common method for pricings, since when the tool is meant for internal teams, the a seat usualyally equals a salary, and therefore is a good metric for what the organization can afford. However, the number of clients doesnt…

            • Prevent Project Description from Opening from a Horizontal Scroll

              Could you make the "hide details" for the project description not open again on scroll? When I hide the details, it sort of remembers that when I revisit which is good. The issue is (especially on smaller screens like laptops) is that your UI is based on horizontal scrolling for Kanban boards, so very naturally the imprecision of scrolling means I'm always re-opening the project details. It gets very annoying.

              • Sections in Assigned to Me

                Please! Would love to have the ability to create sections in Assigned to Me so that I can use KanBan to manage all of the various tasks assigned to me from the various teams/projects (to do, doing, done). Need asap! Thanks.

                  • Search and skip to project using keyboard shortcut

                    Hi all, thanks for a great product :)

                    We are a 7 people company using Flow for our PM needs and we have about 20 active projects. Each time I add tasks or review projects I need to browse the list on the left and it can be quite time consuming to find the project each time.

                    It would be great if we could search and enter a project using a keyboard shortcut, Slack has it implemented well using CMD + K key combo.

                    Hope it helps :)

                    • Enhance new subtask feature / Filter same owner

                      Hi!
                      i like the new subtask features, but we definitly need one change:
                      Please don't show every subtasks in the lists, when the owner of subtask and parent task are the same. Our task lists are now crowded with subtasks. It's very confusing, because these subtasks often have the same name. Or no clear name without the context of the parent task.

                      I hope you can implement some kind of filter here, because my team members are pretty .. unhappy at the moment ;)

                      Cheers!
                      Holger

                      • Integrated revision tool for media approval

                        It would be super functional to have a revision tool integrated within Flow so we could juste mark and comment some file we share like PDF, jpg, PNG, maybe some mp3 or video files mp4 mov, etc.

                        • sub-task has details hint

                          Hello,

                          we are evaluating Flow and i'm already quite addicted to the nice UI.

                          One thing that bothers me -- not a stopper for us -- is : when adding details to a sub-task, there is no way to know if more details are present in the task (like a description) unless you open said sub-task.

                          a bit of background. We are using Trello at the moment and one thing i don't like about it is that i can't paste a screenshot INSIDE a checklist item. We looked at Asana too, and FLOW is the only one that handles that…

                            Can we please have the ability to restrict access to a particular list within a project? Right now, if someone is shared on a project and a new list is created within that project, everyone on the project gets shared on the new list.

                              It would be great to be able to clear tasks that are part of a project in the "assigned to me" tab WITHOUT the task being cleared in the project tab. We'd like to be able to see our completed AND outstanding project tasks in the same view.

                                  That way when a user is assigned multiple subtasks within a task it would hide the notifications. :)

                                    • The blue bar on the top that displays teams - hide/scroll, etc?

                                      I see that there have been blue bar requests and they are declined. I followed the recommended agency setup and added each client as a "team" and the bar took up 1/3 of our screen. The recommended setup is ideal - but only if you have a handful of clients. I'd love to see the blue bar scroll, have the ability to hide it, or something that prevents it from overtaking the screen as you grow your teams.

                                        • Assign a task to multiple people (with a responsibility waterfall so people still take ownership)

                                          (I saw that the Flow team already saw a request to assign a task to multiple people, however this is slightly different.)

                                          Please allow a task to be assigned to multiple people as an option for a team/organization. To prevent incomplete tasks, let the organization configure how a task with multiple people assigned to it should be handled:
                                          - only one person needs to sign off on the task
                                          - all people need to sign off on the task
                                          - waterfall of responsibility: first person owns before expires to next person on list, and so on...
