    • Hi - have you considered creating an inventory management software?

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

      • groups of groups

        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.

          • better integration with Harvest

            We would like to see that there is a api link with Harvest that creates a project in Flow when we create a project in Harvest. Now we have to do both. Zapier is not supporting this functionality with Harvest-Flow either.

            • Ability to set default project for Slack integration

              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: 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.

                  • 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 subtasks with further visual indicator

                      In the app, have a way of showing and hiding the sub tasks.

                      Maybe indented? Would look easier on the eye - the current indicator reminds me of the repeating task indicator.

                        I just lost hours of work on a task because I didn't save the changes to a post. I just have it in my brain that everything autosaves because we work with Google Docs so much. When I accidentally shut down the browser before saving, there was no warning ....

                          • Abitlity to switch on/off checkboxes on tasks? (i.e. create a bullet-point type list for reference)

                            It would be great if there was an option to create tasks that have no checkboxes so that they serve more as a step-by-step reference guide that can't be ticked off.
                            ToDoIst have this option and it's really helpful for ongoing tasks that need to be done regularly (e.g. "check for any new customer enquiries" - this needs doing a few times per day so needs to serve as a reminder task but doesn't require being ticked off each time.
                            Or having a task with sub-tasks that gives you a step-by-step guide on how to do something. The task never…

                            • The ability to assign a task to a team you're not a member of or have a place for tasks that can be created outside of teams

                              It would be great to have the option for anyone to create a task for any other team, even if they're not a member of that team. For example, if I've got some junior admin staff who I want to have restricted access to everything else, I don't want them to be on the main admin team but if something come up that they can't deal with, it would be great if they could create a task for the admin team (even though they're not a member of that team) for them to look into.

                              • Have a coloured flag system for prioritising tasks

                                Is it possible to have a simple coloured flag system to prioritise tasks (it's a great function that ToDoIst has). So instead of just flagging a task you can click on it to change the colour to white, yellow, orange, red etc depending on its priority or when you click/hover on the flag it gives you the colour options to choose from.
                                It would be great if anyone or at least the person who created the task could flag it as a priority for all to see. It would stand out a lot more than just having a barely visible…

                                  I would like to see more reporting features. It would be amazing to see how long a task has sat in each section. I have a draftsman and I want to see how long it takes from him to move it from the backlog to "in progress" and how long it sits "in progress". I know I can see that on the timestamps on the side but having a dedicated section for high level reporting would be great.

                                  Also, super excited for the gantt charts.

                                  • Owner of account should be subscribers to all tasks

                                    As the owner of the account and the manager of my employees, I like having them subscribe me to their tasks because then I know when they complete things which helps with task management. If there were a way to automate that -- a toggle that would allow the owner of the account to be automatically subscribed to every task that is placed on flow -- that would be amazing.

                                    • Catch Up should show tasks with no due dates

                                      The "Catch Up" section shows tasks that you could get started on next. I've noticed that tasks with no due dates (yet are assigned to you) do not show up here. I think they should.

                                      • Box.com connector: edit metadata /etag/description

                                        It's possible to retrieve the files/folders metadata and etag but not to edit them.

                                        • Box.com connector: share a file

                                          It should be wonderful to be able to share files/folders on Box (based on a list of email address and a level of access).
