  1. Move tasks between teams

    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 it

    • Dashboard: Filter for all activity except my own

      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.

        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.

      • Completely hide the "Add a project description" section

        The "Add a project description" is taking a lot of space and is unnecessary for me. On the web version you can "Hide details" but it only slides to the left. On the mac app the "Hide details" doesn't work at all. Suggestion: Hide completely that section.

          Hi! If you haven’t already, we encourage you to check out the new Flow Beta – we’ve made a change to project descriptions there to completely hide them and keep them hidden :) If you’re interested in trying out the beta, instructions on how to become a beta user are here: https://www.getflow.com/support/account/flow-beta and instructions on how to see the new Flow and a quick overview of what has changed can be found here: https://www.getflow.com/guides/new-flow-beta

        • Dashboard should only summarise activity

          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.”

          instead of

          “James commented…”
          “James attached a file…”
          “James completed…"

            Dashboard improvements are actively in progress. We’ll let you know when we have something to show. Thanks for the suggestion!

          • Simplified dashboard

            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.

              We’ve started on a simplified Dashboard that’s easier to read and carries more relevant information.

            • Enhance new subtask feature / Filter same owner

              Hi!
              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 ;)

              Cheers!
              Holger

              • Subtask organization in "assigned to me"

                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.

                  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.

                • Include tasks with upcoming due dates in the Daily Digest

                  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.

                  • Remember hide details as either open or closed

                    When you click "hide details" can you remember that setting? It seems in the past week it always defaults to open on every project, which takes up a lot of screen space.

                    • More than 4 favorites teams

                      Why can we just see 4 teams in the header?

                      It would be great if you allow more then 4 please!

                      Thanks

                      • Only posted completed tasks to Slack channel

                        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_

                        Thanks!

                        • See previous dates while setting due dates

                          Hi! One of the tasks that we use Flow for is keeping track of accounts payable through each stage of the process. When setting payment due dates on invoices (which may be, for example, due in 30 days), it would be great to be able to see dates prior to the current date in the calendar - this would be super helpful, for example, when assigning due dates on an invoice that I might have received a few days earlier than I'm creating the task.
