How could we improve Flow?

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?

        If you don't listen to your users/clients ... you're developing a dead future product ...

        wow... Setting deadline times on task cards is the most important thing of a task organizer right? ;) lol - too bad it's not in flow. For me, this is a major reason to look into MeisterTask now. Please add this basic requirement fast!!!

        Major thing missing from this app. Adding with start times does make sense. Hopefully the heavy stuff is lifted fast haha

        So—your users have been asking you for a feature for FOUR YEARS and you still don't have it on the roadmap? Disappointing.

        Here's another vote for developing the ability to set a due time along with a due date.

        "At this point in time, this is not planned, though we have other planned features that we think will achieve the same goals."

        Are you are inventing a new way of telling time or what is taking so long?

      • Robert DeVivo commented  · 

        Kind of weird why wouldn't this for a task app?

      • JDA commented  · 

        Need this feature more than any other. Especially when it comes to calendar sync. Currently I need to enter tasks that must occur at a specific time in multiple places (flow + calendar). All of this duplicated effort would be eliminated if flow allowed an option to specify a due time.

        Often times when we are working on a marketing campaign launch a lot of tasks are due on the same day but certain tasks need to be completed in the morning compared to the afternoon. The more people you add into this equation the messier it becomes. We have reverted to adding it manually in the task note but it is often missed

        Adding a time would make sense, having multiple all day calendar events is just messy and doesn't assist in planning.
        Having a task allocated to a particular time would add structure to project planning.

        All day's events would make sense if you just working on one project and have a single individual allocated to a project.

        Running multiple projects with multiple individuals allocated to certain tasks that require tasks to be completed for the next individual to continue is our problem.

        Allocating a task without time, really doesn't make any sense!

        Our team would love to be able to add specific times for tasks. This would help us centralize our meetings calendar. We currently use Google Calendar but we really want to centralize our workflow. Does anyone use Flow for meetings?

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        It would be so helpful, as there are some tasks that must be performed at specific times.

        Adding a time of day so that it will update in my email that this task needs to be done by this time today.

        add due times on the due date feature so that they can appear on the calendar

      • Ilean commented  · 

        It would be useful if we could set a time for the task, not just the date. Also you could send us a reminder with an alarm when the time starts and ends.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        can we add a time component, so we can use flows to make appointments?

      • Ryan Sunderman commented  · 

        My vote is to NOT add this feature. Dates and times change. If something needs a specific time, plan it using your Outlook calendar.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I'm amazed that more people don't consider this a must have. Surely the teams at Flow use their own app and can see the benefit? No???

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Since this is clearly something of interest to users and scheduling tasks, in addition to appointments & meetings, is a basic tenet of effective time management and productivity, would you share with us why you won't reconsider the requests for this feature?

        We're adding the start time to the end of a task title due to necessity, but it is less than ideal.
