  1. Filtered Search in Completed Tasks

    With open tasks I can click on the assignee's name to filter tasks assigned to them. Why not have this feature in Completed Tasks?

    • Microsoft Planner integration

      I'd like to be able to create a Flow that acts on tasks in Planner - this would allow users to automatically add Planner tasks into their Outlook tasks and/or SharePoint tasks list. It would also allow us to create more complex notifications.

      • Need ability to create new tasks in an 'inbox' to triage later

        Flow forces new tasks to be created within the project that happens to be open at that moment. Users have to either click "Private Tasks" and then add new task and then navigate BACK to the project they were in, or edit the project name to "Private Tasks". I often don't have enough time to make those changes when capturing tasks. As a result, I capture elsewhere (usually Evernote) and then triage that list by adding tasks to the correct projects in Flow.

        Need ability to create new tasks in a generic 'inbox' (for which 'Project' is NOT a required…

        • Link to full todo task, instead of task in sidepanel.

          It's so annoying when somebody shares a link to a post that it opens in the current / last visited project, and then shows the todo on the right panel... super confusing if you dont use flow much.

          • Merge incomplete tasks into one

            It would be very useful to have a way to merge duplicate tasks into each other, link related tasks and otherwise describe task dependencies. The existing task linking feature is nice, but insufficient because it requires more maintenance (tasks should be linked both ways, so people need to remember to comment on both tasks with the relationship to the other), and muddies up the task history (because marking tasks as complete is misleading when the task wasn't actually completed).

            • Appointments, Meetings, and Conference Calls

              It would be super helpful to introduce Appointments, meetings, or scheduled conference calls. Our team constantly struggles to stay on the same page with this stuff.

                • How can I view my flagged tasks in the Android app?

                  I use flagging quite a lot. However I can not find the flagged filter in the Android app. Am I not looking in the right places?

                  • Add client icons in Project/Group names (beyond emoji and symbols)

                    While it's possible to add emoji and symbols, would be great to simply paste in client logos for groups and projects

                    • Sort/View Tasks By Section on Mobile

                      On the mobile application, if you have repeated tasks under different sections, it would be nice to see your tasks also organized by section within projects. As of right now, it difficult too see what each task goes with.

                          I have noticed that it sometimes takes up to a day for new team members to have access to flow. I would like it to be quicker and more efficient.

                          • Manually Color Code Projects

                            The projects spanning dates on the calendar are great. It would be nice to be able to manually color-code the projects yourself, so each user in the calendar can have a separate color for their individual projects.

                              Sometimes it's good to set a regroup meeting for a specific task. Instead of changing the date of the task itself, is there a way to add a project or task milestone in the calendar?

                                  It would be nice to have the ability to open Evernote classic links in flow. I should be able to click the classic link and have it open the respective note on the desktop Evernote application. I can do this in Wunderlist but not flow. Please add the ability for flow to recognize Evernote classic links as a hyperlink and not plain text.
