    • 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.

        • Make the section selection pulldown wider so you can see the full name when choosing a new category

          It drives me crazy that I can't see the tail end of the section name when trying to change the section for a task. See screenshot. All sections in the same project all look basically the same to me.

          • Project Level Communication

            For us it's very important to discuss on Project Level.
            So a Project-Chat would be very nice.

            Yes, we could just create a Chatroom for each Project, but this is not verry comfortable.

            Suggestion:
            - in the Project-View, there should be a "Chat-Icon"
            - the first click on this icon automaticaly creates a (special) Chatroom with same settings as the project (private/public; involved people/subscribers) and opens it in the right pane of the project view
            - once the Project-Chatroom is created, the Chat should be displayed in the right-pane of the Project-View (if no task is selected) (maybe, in the…

              We may do this next year, and already have designs for it. There are a handful of other exciting things pushing this out and it doesn’t have an exact spot on our roadmap yet.

            • Recent Emojis

              I would like to request the emoji panel become more intuitive by having a "Recently Used" section. I use a few specific emojis regularly and it would save time if they were at the top rather than me having to scroll through all the options. This could look something like on the iPhone emoji screen.

                  • 'Move Project to a different Team' option should be right in the Project options...

                    ...instead of going to a separate place in the software. It would make it more intuitive and less clunky.

                    • Description for Quick-Task

                      Hi

                      "Quick-Task" is a really great function. ... with one deficit: In our company, nearly every Task needs a Description. Because there is no chance to add the Description via Quick-Task currently, people have to either edit the Task after creation (so Quick-Task becomes useless) or have to put all information in the Title (wich results in ultra-long Titltes :( )

                      So please add the posibility to add the Description via Quick-Task.

                        • default view/optional view of task

                          Previously, when you selected a task, the default view showed the latest comment/activity. Everyone has to scroll down to the end. Everytime... this is frustrating, because its a waste of time. Would prefer to have it how it was or at least have the option to configure it either way.

                              I usually just bullet point or number any notes in the comments section. A checklist could come in handy to let my team check off the items as they make progress.

                              • Create and track Google Docs from within Flow

                                It would be really great if you could click a button within a Flow task to create a new Google Doc (or sheet) — and have flow automatically update the task with a link to the new associated Google Doc.

                                Right now, we have to log in separately to Google, create a doc, update the doc's sharing permissions, and then copy and paste a link to the doc back into the flow task. A more native integration would save lots of time!

                                    Hey there, we’d like to build this as well. In the mean time recently we added the ability to type “Everyone” into the subscribers field which will add everyone in that Team (workspace). From there you can remove people who do not need to be subscribed.

                                    I really don't need to see every details of every activity by default—it clutters the view. Perhaps there could be a setting to turn it on or off by default?

                                    • Action to update SharePoint item permission

                                      Please add the action which flow users will be able to update the permission of SharePoint list items.
                                      Some workflow senarios need to do it. For examples...

                                      1) After a staff will start the flow with the item, the manager and manager of manager will change the status differently. And during managers try to change the status, it should NOT view / update / delete these items by the staff.
                                      2) Assistant will be able to update these items instead of managers.

                                      • Convert a task into a project and vice versa

                                        ...more elegant than creating a new project, copying all the info, and deleting the task.

                                        • Add a button to create a follow-up task (just adds a link back to previous task)

                                          While working through a task, I find follow-up tasks are often needed. It would be great to be able to add these with one-click. At the moment such a process involves 5 steps instead of 1 (with consequent loss of "flow")

                                          1. open new tab at app.getflow.com
                                          2. create a new task
                                          3. assign it to the correct location
                                          4. copy the link of the new task and paste it to the old task
                                          5. copy the link of the old task and paste it to the new task

                                          Because this is too time consuming, i often leave tasks open…
