    • Export chat archive

      It would be great to have the ability to export the chat archives so they can be saved and viewed offline for reference.

        • Project Option for to Specify a Default User for New Tasks

          Project level setting to Assign Default User for all Tasks. Previous feature removed the burden of moving Assigned user but now you have to manual assign yourself to Tasks. By providing a Project Level Default setting you can have the best of both features. I don't user Private Tasks because there are no sections and I need others to be able to assign me tasks. Also there are some projects where only a single person will be performing tasks and they should be able to have a Default Assignee on a Per Project Basis.

          • Rename task by clicking on task name name

            I’d like to be able to click on a task name in the task list within a project and be able to rename the task without having to mouse over to the task editor.

              We tested this functionality in the past, but found that it got in the way of drag-and-drop to the point of frustration for many users.

            • Customize Invitations

              It would be great if we could customize the email Invitations sent to team members and viewers.

              • Vertical swimlanes in Kanban view

                Kanban is a great way to organize tasks for flow and priority/triage, yet only having categorization on the horizontal axis is limiting. Having swimlanes on the vertical axis would introduce an entirely new dimension of visibility and control. Having the default be "swimlanes are off" would keep the UI from becoming too dense as well. We're currently using Kanbantool for this aspect of our business and would love to be able to move all that work over to Flow! Also being able to collapse the whitespace/margins between Kanban columns would create more workspace since Kanban is used to view entire…

                  We don’t have plans to add this functionality to the kanban view at this point.

                • reporting

                  reporting. can we get some timelines and graphs on things like.

                  are projects getting completed on time.
                  are we pushing projects?
                  what projects have we finished in the last quarter?

                  • Liquid Layout

                    In order to access all the feature in the flow app, I have to have it open to a certain width, which for us, has a lot of wasted white space between the assignments and the upper menu bar/comment & flag buttons. This takes up valuable screen space that I would rather allocate to my projects. Can you switch to a more liquid layout that collapses to a narrower width but still makes the top right menu and task options available?

                    • Link to full todo task, instead of task in sidepanel.

                      It's so annoying when somebody shares a link to a post that it opens in the current / last visited project, and then shows the todo on the right panel... super confusing if you dont use flow much.

                      • Manual time entry

                        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.

                          I think it would be great if flow offered boolean operator support.

                            Please-please revert back calendar behavior: on Mondays the top of my calendar is scrolled to today, hiding any tasks that has been assigned to me but not moved to this week. Without scrolling back in my calendar I will not see that I have tasks "behind".

                            • Fix month labels in due date pop up calendar

                              The calendar pop-up for setting due dates is quite confusing. The label at the top is often for a different month than is actually showing. For example, when I clicked on it today (April 6), the label at the top still read "March" even though it was mostly showing dates in April. This makes it quite difficult to figure out what month you are actually scheduling for.

                                I'd like to be able to filter a task list for an individual team member by day, week, month. This would help visualize the work load for that specific time frame only.

                                    • Add new sub-task at top of list

                                      Working on tasks with a lot of subtasks means constantly scrolling through the task list to see new tasks, it would be great to be able to add sub-tasks to the top of the list without having to drag and drop to re-order (which can be tricky)

                                      • "Today's tasks" should show section

                                        The "Totday's Tasks" list in the Dashboard should show Project: Section: Task. Right now, it only shows Project: Task, so it looses the organization by section.

                                        • chat in separate window or app

                                          Much like the current Task application, I'd like to see a way to have the Chat as a separate window or application for the desktop client. I realise that we have that for Android/iOS and the mechanism of use for us is showing that we need to be able to view and work on our tasks separately to the chat. Using Chat as it stands means that we have to context switch and also that we're likely to miss notifications. This should go hand-in-hand with the other feature requests around greater integration between Chat and Tasks - otherwise we're going…

                                            We don’t plan to create a separate desktop app for chat, though we do generally aim for multiple instances of Flow open on the same computer to stay in sync. We do have plans to more deeply integrate chat and tasks, including improvements to notifications so that nothing gets missed.
