  1. prevent my projects being made private

    Other users are able to take shared projects I've created and make them private. It'd be nice to be able to have the project's creator need to sign off on that.

    • Keyboard shortcut for setting due date

      As simple as the title suggests. Often I will create a long list of tasks for a new project for example and it is very time consuming having to click on edit for every single task

        While we don’t currently have plans to create a keyboard shortcut for setting due dates, you could do a quick due date update by viewing the Calendar, filtering it by your list, and then drag and dropping the tasks to their new due dates.

      • Integration into Boxer, Dispatch, Evomail, etc?

        Curious what the timeline is for integration into Email apps?

          Unfortunately, we do not have any near-future plans for third-party integration.

        • Include Subscribed Tasks in Daily Digest

          We just starting to use flow and loving it. But just want to request an option to receive daily summary of tasks for Subscribers something similar to daily digest by email. Currently, we need to go into flow to check overdue tasks for subscribers. It will be good to have daily review of those tasks by email.

          • List Completed Tasks by the Section

            When looking back for old tasks, it's very useful to have tasks grouped by the section they belonged to. Right now the only option is tasks ordered by date.

              Hey Matheus,

              It might be worthwhile to check out our “Manually Clear Completed Tasks” setting. It’s a workspace specific setting and is a bit hard to find, also you’ll need an Owner to enable it for the workspace. You can get to it by clicking “Workspaces” from the drop down menu, clicking the drop down menu to the right of the workspace name, “Edit Workspace”.

              This setting allows you to leave tasks where they are after they’ve been completed, and you can manually clear them away from the Project Name drop down menu.

              Hope this helps!

              Jesse

            • Auto timestamp updates in task window while on chat page

              When I am in chat tab and a task is open on right hand side, the timestamps for comments are not getting updated.

              So if someone commented on a task 1 minute ago, the task always shows "1 minute ago" in task panel regardless of how much time passed.

              • Add share extensions in the iOS apps.

                Am using CloudMagic now. It offers integration with Wunderlist, ToDoist, Things...but no Flow. Emailed CM. They said all it would take is for share extensions to be provided via Flow.

                • Add client icons in Project/Group names (beyond emoji and symbols)

                  While it's possible to add emoji and symbols, would be great to simply paste in client logos for groups and projects

                  • Show sections in Daily Digest

                    Update email notifications layouts.

                    Relatively new user, loving GetFlow. One thing lacking is a more detailed email notification for Daily Digests. Current format of line items include Workspace | Project | Task. Showing "Section" within that drilldown before Task in that view would be an immense help for my team.

                    I also think that the layout could change to be a 2-column Kanban view for the email notification would be a marked improvement.

                    My only negative feedback at this time. Keep up the good work.

                    • Recent Tags

                      Unnoticed when I use the mobile app that the "recent tags" are only when adding a new one. It would be very useful to be the most recent used tag.

                        Hey Mikey, can you give some details about what you’re describing? I take it you’re talking about the iOS app? What are you suggesting would be a good change? I’m not quite sure I understand. Thanks!

                      • The ability to hind the activity comments by default

                        I really don't need to see every details of every activity by default—it clutters the view. Perhaps there could be a setting to turn it on or off by default?

                        • Recent Emojis

                          I would like to request the emoji panel become more intuitive by having a "Recently Used" section. I use a few specific emojis regularly and it would save time if they were at the top rather than me having to scroll through all the options. This could look something like on the iPhone emoji screen.

                          • Section specific "access/privacy roles"

                            I work as a freelancer, but regularly outsource work to other freelancers, who, in a way, have become a organization.

                            It would be great if sections (in projects) could also have specific access roles.
                            For example: a freelancer responsible for the web design of a project, would not be able to access any content creation related tasks, handled by other freelancers.

                            • Shortcuts for jumping between projects (like quick jump in slack/gmail)

                              I prefer to use my keyboard to navigate flow, gmail, slack etc., and you guys have done a good job to start, but one of the big things that's missing for me is the ability to just jump to a different project or section with a simple shortcut. I love the ease of gmail's `gi` shortcut, for example, or slack's cmd+K (latter is a better example because you type the name and then switch).

                                It's easy to accidentally move projects out of groups or create a new group with two projects in it by accident. Can you create a "lock" feature to prevent this?

                                  I work between the lists - we have one project but many tasks on different lists - when working between the lists and going back and forth, I want to be at the last task I worked on at each list...it's kind of random you never know where you're going to be in the list and I have to search to find the last task I was working on - where I was last - even though it has only been under a minute.

                                  Also cutting and pasting info from an email is adding huge spaces in between each line…

                                    Currently, lists always open without a task selected. If you use your keyboard to navigate down the list, you will always start from the top. We have no intention, at this point in time, to remember last-selected tasks, per list, per user.

                                      Unfortunately, that’s not something we can do in the task bar for Windows. We looked into best practices and Microsoft’s requirements, and that’s not the intended use of the task bar. Sorry to say, cause I could see how that’d be helpful. :/

                                    • Clear tasks automatically - user specific

                                      Some users prefer clearing tasks manually as they can see what has been completed in-line with the sections. Is it possible to have the toggle on/off apply to user rather than project?

                                        We don’t plan to change the clear completed tasks preference, but we do aim to better address the need to track and report on completed tasks in the future, which might eliminate the need for a workspace preference.

                                        We keep our full contact list populated on the left hand pane so that we can easily dm people/view their statuses. I oversee and chat with 20+ people every day so it would be really helpful to quickly be able to find the person I need to talk to (ie alphabetically rather than most recent).

                                        • Make phone numbers clickable

                                          For one of my tasks I said “call xxx at 1-800-xxx-xxxx” and on the iPhone it wasn’t clickable. So I added a comment with that number, and still not clickable. It doesn’t seem to have a notes field for details like this either, so I’m wondering how I can get a number I want to call into the task such that I can tap on it from the phone when I’m driving.

                                            While we wouldn’t want you on your phone while you’re driving, a feature like this could be useful for field work.
