  1. Offline mode - especially in the app.

    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!!

      Offline mode is back on the table and something that we’d like to tackle in the coming year for iOS. It’s not in any specific plans yet, as there are some technical requirements that need to be built from the ground up. But we hear you and agree that there are cases when it’s very helpful to have a limited range of actions available to you while using Flow out in the world. We’ll need to keep things uncomplicated, but that should still leave us open to enabling the most important actions. Thanks for voting!

    • Multiple language support

      We are located in Germany and we have Consultants throughout Europe. Translations would be very nice!

        While we would love to offer localization in future updates, we’re still a small team that is unable to offer support in those languages as well. We will absolutely revisit this feature when we have the resources needed to make it really amazing.

      • Private tasks not in a workspace

        Currently, the inbox is in a workspace - which means that I have to assign an email to the workspace and then awkwardly move tasks around. I want to be able to easily move tasks from an inbox to wherever they need to be - so having an inbox that all my stuff goes into that's then drag and dropped to the right list/workspace would be great.
        Cheers
        Ben

          While we can see why you’d want to do this, we don’t have plans to create a global inbox.

        • Time Tracking Integration

          Flow currently support time tracking via Harvest. I would like to see integration with other time-tracking services, such as Paymo, Timecamp, or Toggl. Or better yet, build time tracking into Flow as a native feature, so that another tool is not required.

          • Assign colors to projects/groups

            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.

            • Color text formating in tasks and comments

              Would be great to be able to give text in tasks and comments a color.
              The user flow could be like this - highlight the text, right click and assign it a hex value or even better a color picker.

              Sometimes the tasks get a bit long and a little bit of color could help draw out the important elements among the black, bold and blue links. This would be particularly useful when posting QA results that are color coded based on importance: green and blue ones are ok, orange are warnings, and red need addressing. However not being able…

              • Colour coding tasks and/or projects.

                In month-view, tasks for whole team could be easily distinguishable.

                  We have no plans to add colour coding at this point. But it seems like you needed a way to track project progress and pick tasks by project. That is something we’d like to help with. Thanks for the suggestion.

                • Task due time

                  Many of my colleagues complain that it is not possible to assign an exact time to a task, is this something that you plan for in the future?

                    • Manage tags menu - add, edit, delete tags

                      Would be nice to have the option to manage tags more actively. A separate page or sidebar that allows you to add, edit, or delete unused tags would be ideal.

                        We don’t have plans to turn tags into a manageable collection of options that can be edited or deleted. As it stands now, tags disappear from auto-completion when there are no longer any open tasks with those tags.

                      • Collapse Sections

                        One of the reasons i leave ASANA is because they cant provide this simple feature. If a project have 10 sections with 30 tasks, it is unmanageable.

                        • Manually Rearrange Tasks on Mobile

                          Need the ability to manually rearrange taks within a list on mobile. For example, if I want to move one task to the top of the list, that’s currently impossible. This is standard functionality in most task apps, and its absence is very inconvenient.

                            Our iOS team definitely recognizes the value in this feature so, while it’s not on our roadmap yet, we’re not ruling it out for future updates.

                          • 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 :)

                            • 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!

                                I just noticed that the iPad and iPhone Flow apps no longer let me see an entire folder at a time, i have to click into each “project” to see the list of tasks.

                                I really like on the desktop version how i can put Projects into Groups, then i just click the group and i see all of it’s projects and related tasks in one window, it gives me a much better “top down” view on a particular group of projects and tasks.

                                I would really like the desktop functionality to be reflected in the iOS apps. Right now,…

                                • Collapsable Outline/Group Views in Lists

                                  I would like you to add collapsable outlining of grouped items to the task list pane.

                                  For example:
                                  1. click on subscribed
                                  2. sort tasks by person

                                  Most of us probably have hundreds of tasks that appear in these lists.
                                  It is cool that you can click on the sorted header ( a person's name in the above example) and be taken to a new page view for that person's tasks, where you can then sort the list by list or date.

                                  But it would also be nice to be able to click a disclosure triangle to the left of…

                                  • It would be nice if projects with sub-projects and regular projects were aligned

                                    If a project doesn't have any sub-projects it is fully aligned left. However, if it does, the expansion arrow moves the title of the project to the left. It would be nice if project names were all aligned.

                                      Hey! Thanks for your suggestion. I believe the indenting is there to distinguish grouped projects from projects that are not grouped. It might be difficult to tell a group from a project without the indentation. We’ll definitely consider your feedback though, so thanks!

                                    • Tabled Tasks or Sections

                                      I often have a collection of tasks both within Sections and scattered across various Projects that I are "on hold" or "tabled" for the time being.

                                      Purely out of a desire to get that Inbox Zero™ feeling, I would love to be able to archive or table specific tasks or sections until the team comes back to them.

                                      There's nothing quite like seeing all those tasks assigned to you that you can't do anything with. #OCD

                                        I like this suggestion, Jody. Makes total sense. There’s definitely work to be done to bury (and resurface) tasks in Flow in a timely way.

                                        I usually just bullet point or number any notes in the comments section. A checklist could come in handy to let my team check off the items as they make progress.

                                          We do not need to use harvest in our workflows. (We do not sit at a desk and work on projects for our customers.) For example, an internal customer says "My computer is broken" or "My videocamera is broken" or "The production switcher isn't working." These are all tasks that take us to the customer's workspace in our building and require us to be hands on. (We're a TV network.) It would be nice to be able to recount the time spent and enter it manually.
