  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • BUG: Single-project guests show up in team-wide dropdown menus

        Currently, if I add someone as a single-project user, they show up now in every other project. They should only show up to be assigned to tasks in the project they are in.

        • 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…

          • Save Sections / Copy Sections Between Projects

            It would be very useful if you could save a section and then add that section to another product. Alternatively, the ability to drag and drop sections between projects to copy them.

            • Sorting Options: Sort by section groups by project, not section

              When reviewing tasks, I want to be able to sort by sections within projects. Currently "Sort by Section" simply sorts by project. If any tasks have the same name under different sections, this causes confusion.

                When I create a group and put projects underneath, I'll sometimes come back to find that the Group no longer exists, or the projects have somehow moved outside of the group.

                • Upcoming tasks

                  Now tasks can only be seen in the calendar when they have a due date, and it is not easy to see a list of work pending to be assigned a date.

                  An 'upcoming' list of tasks that could be seen from the calendar would make it much easier to schedule tasks on a time basis from the calendar, without having to browse projects and tasks to search them.

                    • Customizable Slack notifications

                      Customized Slack Notifications.

                      The Flow Slack bot is awesome and well functioning until... you get a million notifications per channel and your team starts to get annoyed. The options of off/some/most/all do not provide the needed flexibility.

                      I think there is a simple fix. An improvement push that would let the team owner select which Slack events to send into slack.

                      I, for example, care more about the commenting than creation of items/cards and would like to configure it so. Simply making the attached table available in a selectable UI would work!

                      • 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,…

                        • Let customers know important things

                          I have an idea! Let people know when you charge them for a new year - I think they will love it!
                          You see, when you run a business, money is important. But sometimes you are putting your credit card in a service because you trust them - you assume that they will let you know when they charge you 200$ for a whole new year, SO YOU HAVE A WAY TO CANCEL AND GET A REFUND!

                          Be aware. They charge you without letting you know. They won't even send you an email letting you know about the charge. I…

                          • Windows App - Add to System Tray;

                            The app is currently only accessible via the taskbar; however, it would be helpful if it acted like other programs and existed in the system tray (and collapsed there when the window is closed).

                            Slack is a good example of what I'm getting at.

                            • 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.

                                This way I can keep stakeholders up-to-date about tasks' status.

                                    • TSheets Integration

                                      We use TSheets for time tracking and would like to see it integrated into Flow. This would allow users a choice between Harvest and another Time Tracking tool.

                                        What's missing (I can't buy it until this is done because I use it on daily basis in Todoist)
                                        - (Nice to have) No native ability to flag task for Today and for Week. This can be worked around through using Flagging for Weekly planning and through setting Due Today for Daily planning.
                                        - (Required) In Flagged view, there is no ability to see the structure of subtasks, all is a flat list.
                                        - (Required) In Flagged view, there is no ability to change order of tasks and subtasks. (I understand that this is a filtered view, still I need…

                                        • A bit dicky move- 3 users for 20, 4 users for $59

                                          Just added the 4th user. The price triples. That's just a dicky move. What about direct proportionality or something (anything) else than tripling the price...
