    • Due Date Default Tomorrow

      It would be nice if the default due date would be set to today or tomorrow. This would force the user to specify a date if not today and it saves time when adding a lot of tasks with unspecified due dates. In the current setting there is always a risk that an important task ends up in the pile at the end of your list because you forgot to specify the due date.

      Would be even better if you can set your own default due date; always tomorrow / always today / always one week ahead / etc.

      • Dropdown list for teams, lists etc

        When selecting a team, list etc. it’d be nice to get a drop down list without having to guess the name of the item. This is especially the case when there’re lots of lists.
        cheers
        Ben

          Thanks for the suggestion, there are no plans to fix this currently, but we’ll watch this request and listen to other sources for this coming up again.

        • Text formatting in task descriptions is painfully bad

          Pasting unformatted text in to the OSX app doesn't seemed to be respected (i.e. nothing happens). Also the general formatting of text is a nightmare. Can't seem to indent bullet points to multiple levels for example. The pop-up format bar only appears when text is highlighted which seems awkward.

            Hey, trying to get to the bottom of this. I just tested pasting into the Mac app, and it worked. Could you provide more details about that?

            As for multiple indents, that’s not something we plan to offer with the visual editor—I would consider using bolding to separate sections or switching to the markdown editor (via Account Preferences > Text Editor)

            Is there anything else that isn’t working or that you’d like to see? Thanks!

          • print your calendar

            can you please provide an option so the task calendar (monthly view) can be printed out?

            • Time added to Harvest should show as a comment in a task

              The Harvest integration works seamlessly, but I don't have a way to refer to time that may have been added to a task in the past, without opening Harvest and clicking on the project or date.

              I need to see time added to Harvest as a comment in the Flow task, e.g. "Harvest time tracking for [Harvest Client], [Harvest Project], [Harvest Task], [HH:MM] logged."

              • Auto-Assign Tasks is Unhelpful

                Right now - when I create a task, it auto-assigns it to myself. I have to manually click off my name, and then it automatically subscribes me. Which means - every time I "quickly" create a task - I have to click three times to un-assign or re-assign the task. This is cumbersome. I'd suggest automatically assigning & subscribing no-one. Then you can assign people when needed.

                  Have you tried creating tasks with keyboard shortcuts? Hit enter to create a task, then tab through the fields to reassign or remove people. Alternatively, create tasks from the center pane of Unassigned, and you won’t need to remove the assignee.

                • Adding sections in private tasks

                  It'd be great if you could divide private tasks into sections as well.
                  That way, you can keep some personal things as well as work related things there, or seperate into seperate projects or ideas... or whatever you can think of.

                    Great idea! For now, you can make a project private and sections will be there for you "_

                  • File attachments should be a separate option from comments

                    I would like to be able to click on a files icon when I select a task that lists all of the files attached to that task.

                      We do not currently have plans for this, though that may change as tasks become more powerful, requiring more organization.

                        We do not have any plans at this point for a native Mac app. If demand swells or we determine there are benefits that outweigh the development time/cost, you can be sure we’ll consider it.

                      • Move groups between teams

                        We are using the group feature to group smaller projects that belong to a bigger, umbrella project. We initially started with several teams, but ended up having to do a lot of work to move our groups from those extra teams back to one team as we found that moving tasks between teams wasn't possible. The ability to move and duplicate an entire group to a new team would be very helpful! Thank you!

                            It would! Judging by the difficulty that many companies have faced building a solution for video and audio conferencing, the likely solution here would be for us to integrate with a third party product.

                            • Forget This "Edit" and "Save" Business!

                              The right hand column should be immediately ready to edit your tasks without clicking "edit" and "save" once you're finished. It's a waste of time. If I click on a task to twirl out the right column, it's because I'm already prepared to make an edit or add a comment. "save" is silly to me because this is not some long text document which I can accidentally loose - I'm switching subscribers! If I accidentally to the wrong person its an easy fix. Thanks!

                                    We will not allow people to tamper with task, list, and workspace activity feeds, but may play with different activity views on the Dashboard, including searching and filtering.

                                    Is it possible to offset the projects underneath the groups? It would make it easier to look at. At the moment, when groups are expanded, the projects within it are aligned with the group itself, making it hard to differentiate all the items on the projects sidebar (and only being able to use the expanded icon to be able to tell). Attached a file with what I’m talking about. Thanks!

                                    • Vocal memo

                                      It would be super to add the possibility of attaching vocal memo in a note or even as a comment... When you work a lot on a mobile sometimes few seconds of audio save many minutes of typing on a cellphone... as well as on a computer if you have to describe something more technical it saves a lot of time...

                                      Thank you for considering this idea :)

                                          Custom views for Guest users are not in the books. We’ll continue to watch this though.

                                        • Custom Domain

                                          As a company we should have the ability to create our own custom mapping for flow.

                                            Thanks for the suggestion. Beyond the team URL we provide you, there aren’t plans to allow for custom domains quite yet.
