  1. Better Notificiation Sounds

    Just more distinct sounds for chat message notifications, tasks that are checked off and done

    • Additional ways to filter and sort by tag

      Flow would benefit from a way to view tags more effectively than either version.

      Is there a reason that it can't sit in the sidebar as a navigation item? That then takes you to all tags and the number of tasks assigned to them and you can then select a tag?
      A bit like Evernote.

        We don’t have plans to expand on the tagging functionality. That said, we won’t rule it out. Keep voting and commenting with how you work and what problem you’re aiming to solve with this. It all helps!

      • 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.

        • Smart syntax for task rows, task form (@assign, #tag, etc)

          First of all, I love love the new look & feel, I love having the task view on the right side, and I love having different workspaces. Bravo!

          Here are a couple features that I would have loved to see come along with this update:

          The ability to assign tasks to people on my team using the "@" symbol within the title. Maybe if you have more than one person the first one is the one assigned and the others are just subscribers...

          The same thing goes for using the "#" character and creating tags. Creating tags should be much…

            We are planning to make it much easier to quickly enrich your tasks with details, directly from the task title input in the task form and quick task bar, using the same syntax we use with emailing tasks to Flow.

          • 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!

            • Add Custom Fields to Tasks

              I would LOVE to be able to add custom fields to task items so I can track: Set Budget, Estimated Time, Actual Time, Completed Date (to compare performance of team against Due Date, Team Rate ($), Invoice Rate ($), Proft/Loss, etc. Then also the ability to do simple equations (to calculate est time vs actual time, profit/loss, etc.

                We don’t have any plans to do anything like this anytime soon, but we can certainly recognize its utility, especially if you could filter and sort by these values as well.

              • Dependant tasks

                Our team has too many unactionable tasks in our Teama because they are dependant upon other tasks being completed!

                teamwork.com has the amazing ability to create "dependancies" for tasks (though their implementation is much more clunky than I'm sure Flow could do it). What they do is make the task uncheckable until the primary task is first completed. I think you should take this a step further and move the dependent task out of view (maybe grayed out at the bottom of the list).

                • Icons for groups

                  Icons for Groups and Lists. It would be great to have icons for groups and lists. We use groups as "clients" or big projects and lists as specific tasks. It would be great to quickly be able to see what the group or list is by seeing a specific icon or uploading the clients logo. Similar to the new workspace bar on the left that allows for logos.

                    We don’t have plans to allow for custom icons for lists nor groups in the future, at this point in time.

                  • 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 :)

                        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.

                      • Download all attachments

                        Frequently we'll attach multiple PDFs to a task and it's proving tedious to other users having to open each pdf and save one at a time. My thought was to have the ability to download all/multiple attachments from a post.

                          As much as we want to build this, we haven’t been able to stick it into our jam-packed plans. We’ll keep an eye on it though! :)

                        • 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?

                          • Looping in non-Flow users to tasks

                            Sometimes you want to assign a task to a person that is not using flow. You do not want to invite that person as they might not work that much with you. But you want to assign one task to them.

                            It would be great, if you could assign Tasks to "email addresses" and those people have the possibility to comment and check off the tasks without creating a flow account and without logging in. They just click on a link in their email message, review the task and later check it off with the same link.

                                  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.

                                  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.

                                  • 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…

                                      • 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.
