  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,…

    • 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.

      • Separate 'Clear Completed Tasks' to individual preference

        If one person clears completed tasks in a project. It will clear completed tasks for everyone.

        We'd like it to be separated for individual preference as task managers need it for back referencing but workers ticking off tasks just want it clear to see what they need to do next.

        • Weekly Planning and Daily Planning

          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…

          • 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…

            • We need proper Kanban view in the iOS app!

              There is a similar feature request made that was fraudulently marked as "completed" in 2015.

              Nevertheless, the Kanban feature remains MISSING from the iOS app, making it unusable to those of us whom have set up all their projects using Kanban boards, thinking (mistakenly it seems) that Flow really supports Kanban.

              Please implement Kanban PROPERLY into the iOS app ASAP.

              Thanks

              • No maintence at 5 pm!

                You have got to be kidding. A maintenance update at 5 PM until 9 PM. This is completely unacceptable. I'm in California and you have taken my companies task manager down. You need to do these in the middle of the night. In addition, put your support ticket system on a different server. I'm unable to send support tickets when you're doing maintenance. I absolutely love Flow but your cloud service over the past three weeks has me rethinking your reliability. Our business depends on flow for mission critical management!

                  Defer to date
                  Provide a function that (optionally) hides tasks until they are deferred.

                  As a power user with many tasks
                  I want to only see those tasks that I can work on at this point in time
                  So that I can just work on the next task.

                  - option for a task to be hidden until a particular date.
                  - maybe use the due date? or could be a new date ("defer until" or "start date").
                  - Could be greyed out until the date
                  - Could be sorted to the bottom of a list.

                  • Favourite search (horizontal view across tasks)

                    Save search for Tags

                    As a user of Flow, I want to have a horizontal view across my tasks so that I can work on a given set of tasks.

                    Specifically this has come up because I use tags as a way of capturing the context of a task - so if I'm making phone calls, or doing banking or working online. These contexts run across the projects and I want to see all the tasks that I need to do in that context at one time. I can search for the tags in the search bar - but this…

                        An inventory management software that is simple, straightforward but allows for many moving parts and that can grow with the company.

                          As Project Owner, I'd like to share my board as read-only so that the wide public (anonymous users) can access and see it just using an URL (e.g., a special-crafted URL for public users).
                          This way I can keep stakeholders up-to-date about tasks' status.

                            I would love to be able to create multiple levels of project groups. E.g., I wanted to created a group of projects today that are top priority for my team, but one of them is in fact a larger program consisting of multiple projects itself. Since that one already exists as a group, I could only include a "pointer" project to refer to it.

                                  If only there was a way to move tasks up and down the list on the calendar.

                                  I understand you can flag and tag tasks, however being able to view the most important tasks in a large list from the top at a quick glance is extremely helpful!

                                  I find myself having to thoroughly search my task list on my calendar for red flags.

                                  Can we please have the ability to move them to the top!
                                  A little thing, but a big difference

                                  Thanks guys :)

                                    It's been great to create a link between Flow and Slack and it's working well.

                                    We use Slack primarily for one thing: the Smooch.io integration. This gives a messaging channel in an iOS app that lets a user communicate directly with our support team.

                                    Smooch.io creates a new channel for every user who contacts us. From those channels, with a /sk command we can communicate back to the user, and now with a /flow command we can create tasks to track any bug reports or feature requests.

                                    To direct things correctly, we always want to link these tasks to a…

                                    • Ios: Sub tasks - iOS saving should be automatic

                                      Currently you have to actively tap on "save" to save the subtask - too many actions. Should be able to be saved straight away - there's no reason not to commit it.

                                      • iOS: Add photo attachments in iOS without leaving Flow

                                        Currently, you must take a photo then come back in to add it.

                                        As a mobile user of Flow who's taking photos of things I want to work on,
                                        I want to be able to add a photo to a task without losing my context - I want the addition of a photo to the task to be seamless -
                                        So that I can keep on adding and working on my tasks without interruption.

                                        • iOS: Sub tasks - iOS tapping done should behave like tasks

                                          Should go to the next line to enter another rather than having to edit again to add another subtasks.

                                          Adding subtasks is, I find, often something that I do all at once - I don't want to be interrupted whilst adding them.
