    You should have a switch chatroom command. Slack has cmd+k. It's super helpful.

    • Hyperlinks from email do not transfer

      Creating tasks by forwarding emails is great, but the hyperlinks from those email do not transfer.

      • Kanban view should be available in “Completed Tasks"

        Kanban view should be available in “Completed Tasks” as well.

          Kanban is typically used to move tasks through a process or along a timeline so at the moment there are no plans to add this view to Completed Tasks. Once they’re completed it’s assumed that they’ve exited the process/cycle and don’t need to be categorized any longer. We’ll definitely keep this in mind though!

        • Add link to Section name

          Many of my sections apply to unique urls. It would be great if where you go to rename a section title, you could add a URL. Then if you click on that section head, without dragging, it could open the relevant window and you’d be up and working quicker :)

          • Email Notificatons

            Hi

            1) Is it possible for you to incorporate Email notifications for weekly & monthly tasks as well, just the way it happens for daily digest?

            2) Options for email frequency - once a week

            3) For the Daily digest emails, can subscribes to a task also have the updates. As of now it is only related to due & delegated

            These options if incorporated, it will be extremely useful for us users specifically for when one is on the move and just wants to see email updates for tasks that are delegated, instead of having to log on to…

              • default view/optional view of task

                Previously, when you selected a task, the default view showed the latest comment/activity. Everyone has to scroll down to the end. Everytime... this is frustrating, because its a waste of time. Would prefer to have it how it was or at least have the option to configure it either way.

                • Need to fix advanced subtasks

                  It is CRAZY with the new subtasks features that you MUST assign each individual subtask to a certain person or it shows up as 'NO DUE DATE' on the master project task list. If I assign a project to someone, with subtasks, it too should default to them! Right now, I must go to each of the TEN individual subtasks and assign it to the SAME person the MASTER task was assigned to. Come on guys! Let's get this fixed! Needs to make LOGICAL sense!

                    • Basecamp Integration: Sync tasks

                      At our office we use both Flow and Basecamp. We use Flow for our organization's tasks as we don't want our clients to see our detailed tasks and discussions. We use Basecamp's to-do's to share with our clients and give them insights in our progress. It also allows the client to prioritize to-do's. However, having 'client' to-do's in Basecamp along side our team tasks in Flow is kind of double the task management work. It would be super if there would be a way to integrate Basecamp's to-do's into Flow one-way, and add a #basecamp tag or something like that…

                        • Associate tasks in Chat rooms with a Team by default

                          When creating tasks from a Chat room, it would be good to be able to have the chat associated with a team - so that when creating a task it is created in that team by default and not accidentally created in another team. This is especially useful given how difficult it is to move tasks between team.

                          • Show project assignees in calendar view

                            I'd like to be able to set owners/assignees for projects, or set start+end dates for tasks, so that I can have a calendar view showing who is working on what and when.

                            Right now, I manually prefix project names with the main designer responsible (e.g. "JD New Login Page") so I can see who is working on what at a glance in the calendar view.

                            In general, seeing who is working on what in a calendar view is most important to me, because the main reason I use flow is to schedule new work for my design team. Right now…

                            • Show non-dated tasks on the Calendar

                              It would be really great to have the option of seeing items without due dates in the calendar view.

                              Often times I'll create a project and add tasks that are upcoming but have yet to be given hard deadlines. It often comes up when we're doing intial design concepts but no firm deadline is assigned. This way the entire team knows what's involved and when they're free they can start working on it.

                              The trouble is we can't see these tasks unless we go to the specific project. It would be nice to be able to view all tasks in…

                                    Because the icons do not appear until you hover, when I try to flag a task many, many times I accidentally open comments instead. It appears the link area is only exactly on the icon itself so that I have to very intentionally click on the correct spot. This is an inconvenience because I think it should be really quick to flag or comment. Could you add some padding around the flag button and move the comment button just a bit to the left it so that they are not so close together?

                                    • How can I view my flagged tasks in the Android app?

                                      I use flagging quite a lot. However I can not find the flagged filter in the Android app. Am I not looking in the right places?

                                      • Flag & view subtasks from different projects in one place

                                        There should be a way to flag subtasks so it would be possible to create a daily list of subtasks from different project tasks all together.

                                          Hi, it's annoying that all completed tasks in calendars disappear once we complete them. On calendar it's better we have them even if they are completed, to see how much work we've done so far with deadline. Please consider having a "to-do list" on calendar that will not be gone even if they are completed. Thanks.

                                            This feature does already exist in the form of the “Clear Completed Tasks” option. You can learn how to enable the setting in this support article: https://www.getflow.com/support/tasks/completing-tasks/. Unfortunately, because back-dating is not supported in the Flow calendar, all completed tasks will be pushed forward to “Today.” While we can appreciate the benefit of being able to view past dates/completed tasks in the Calendar view, the current functionality allows for faster load times not only in the calendar view, but throughout the app. We don’t have any immediate plans to change this functionality, but we’ll definitely revisit it at a future date.

                                          • Don't see your idea?
