I live on planes without wifi. I'd love to be able to at least view existing, mark completed and add tasks while offline. When online, all the syncing and delegation happens. Please!!326 votes
We’re building our new iOS app to handle offline interactions. We do not have any short term plans for the web app to support an offline mode.
Would love to see a dynamic Gantt chart linked to Task/subtask tree. A progress bar would be ideally matched to each subtask that updated larger tasks and vis a vie the project. A global page that overlooks all workspaces and their relevant progress in a visual way would be a-mazing.
Thanks for great work !152 votes
Would be great to be able to route tasks in from Basecamp, Google tasks, CRM, Box.com and all the other places that feed us tasks. Zapier integration or maybe Piesync would accomplish that, thus making Flow the authoritative “task hub” on our team.97 votes
We’ve started preliminary work on this integration. I’ll let you know when this is live.
We really need to be able to *easily* move TASKS between teams - e.g. drag and drop them or select and change the team. This should be able to be locked down by user if they don’t have access to a team - but it’s too easy to create a task in the wrong team and then have to fiddle around to move it92 votes
Design is beginning on this next week.
Would love to have a Kanban view for Project Groups in which each card shown is a Project rather than a specific task. That way you could get a high level overview of what phase(s) each project is in without having to look at a huge list of individual tasks.69 votes
Development on this has begun.
It would be great to get away from the starkness of blue and white. I would love to be able to customize my Groups and even projects by colors. On top of that, customization of task colors or even varied color flags (yellow, red, green) would be nice. I understand that the simplicity of Flow is one of it's differentiators, but every team works differently and sometimes having these customization tools would be highly beneficial.60 votes
In month-view, tasks for whole team could be easily distinguishable.45 votes
Need ability to sort by due date in Kanban view and Section view.
Would be great to show due dates in Kanban view as well (without having to open a task to check).36 votes
This is being developed right now :)
The current Week view shows week after week, so it's more like a "months", or "weeks", view. Can we have a "single week" view, in order to focus on the current week and nothing else? It's my most used view on the current Flow.34 votes
We’re actively building this.
Generally when I am scanning the dashboard, it is to keep up to date with what others on my team are doing. It would be really helpful ti have a filter which does all activity except my own for that use case.21 votes
We’ve started work on a dashboard that is better at helping you process the tasks that need your attention. A bonus is that it not longer repeats what you know you said.
Dashboard seems to be a total waste. It displays absolutely everything, regardless of whether it’s useful or not, which is not practical.
Dashboard should provide a general overview of ONLY RECENTY ACTIVITY, not EVERYTHING, including fully formatted long notes in comments (because there’s no way to create/edit text files in Flow).
Show ONLY what actually happened recently, i.e.:
“James commented on INSERT TASK NAME HERE.”
“James attached a file…”
“James completed…"13 votes
Dashboard improvements are actively in progress. We’ll let you know when we have something to show. Thanks for the suggestion!
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.12 votes
This is being developed now.
i like the new subtask features, but we definitly need one change:
Please don't show every subtasks in the lists, when the owner of subtask and parent task are the same. Our task lists are now crowded with subtasks. It's very confusing, because these subtasks often have the same name. Or no clear name without the context of the parent task.
I hope you can implement some kind of filter here, because my team members are pretty .. unhappy at the moment ;)
We’ve started on a fix for this. Should be out early next week. Thanks for your patience.
Hey I noticed that the new rules for subtasks has changed the way that you can view things in the "assigned to me'' section. There is no way to collapse the subtasks in that view. It is really frustrating. That is the section I mainly use to manage my daily tasks and it's now flooded with subtasks that are seemingly not even listed near their corresponding main tasks. Can you guys change that to be similar to how it works in calendar view? Thanks.7 votes
We’re working on a solution for making this more clear. Because parent task owners can be different from subtask owners we’re unable to nest subtasks in this view. But we think we’ve got a tweak that’ll make this thing a bit easier to parse. Hang tight.
It would be nice if you could tick a project as 'completed'. Archive doesn't really make sense.7 votes
We’re making this change soon.
Limit items on the dashboard to completed tasks, comments added to tasks, and task assignments (when a person is assigned a task, or ownership changes). Do not include new tasks that have been created. Recently I added 6 tasks to a project and they cluttered the dashboard. Dashboard should be a quick read.6 votes
We’ve started on a simplified Dashboard that’s easier to read and carries more relevant information.
It would be great to see what tasks I have coming up that will be due. that way I wouldn't have to go into the program just to see what three or four things I have due soon.6 votes
I wish you could search the dashboard for comments only. Even better would be only comments directed at you. That would really help!4 votes
We’re working on making it easier for you to process all of the tasks and comments that need your attention. Watch for it this summer!
As the Teams Leader, I like to acknowledge completed tasks by "liking them". If I miss a day or two, It can be cumbersome to scroll through the dashboard to find all the completed tasks to like. Maybe there is a way you could make completed tasks stand out more, or filter the dashboard to see only content that has been liked/not liked.
We’ve started work on a simplified Dashboard that groups relevant activity and brings it to your attention in a way that’s easy to work through quickly. We’ll keep you updated.
Really really loving Flow so far. Definitely summed up with the image on your landing page that the other PM tools are too light or total overkill.
One thing we would really like would be a setting that allows only _completed_ tasks to be posted to a Slack channel. This lets everyone know that people are being productive without junking up the channel too much with messages about tasks / dates being _created/set_
This will likely go out tomorrow.
