      • Guest User (with no account creation or login)

        The ability to share the project link with a client so that they can see a high-level view of the project without logging in/account creation.

        The email that is currently sent to the guest is not customisable and looks too unprofessional.

          • Ability to flag an item from the edit section

            If you search for a task, there is currently no way to flag the task once you find it in the search section without tracking it down to its project. It would be very handy to have the flag icon editable from the edit section, as the edit section is viewable once a task is found in search. Also on a side note, if a task is moved to a section it does not appear to track that as an activity under the task. Today I wa able to find a task by searching, but it only showed the original…

            • Updated Calendar View on Tasks Page

              On the tasks page, it would be helpful on the calendar view to be able to choose whether you wanted a breakdown by day, week, or month. Very similar to how it's laid out on timelines.

              • Owner of account should be subscribers to all tasks

                As the owner of the account and the manager of my employees, I like having them subscribe me to their tasks because then I know when they complete things which helps with task management. If there were a way to automate that -- a toggle that would allow the owner of the account to be automatically subscribed to every task that is placed on flow -- that would be amazing.

                  • List of projects to select from when creating a task

                    Given that Projects are a mandatory field...
                    As a multi-project user (who isn't?)
                    I want a list of projects shown to me when I'm creating a task
                    So that I can select the right project and not create further projects that could be duplicates.

                    Consider the case where there are multiple users creating projects - very easy to create the same project.

                    * at the moment I can get a list by starting to type - but only if I know the first letter of an existing project. I can guess - but this shouldn't be about guessing.
                    * this…

                          • It would be nice if projects with sub-projects and regular projects were aligned

                            If a project doesn't have any sub-projects it is fully aligned left. However, if it does, the expansion arrow moves the title of the project to the left. It would be nice if project names were all aligned.

                              Hey! Thanks for your suggestion. I believe the indenting is there to distinguish grouped projects from projects that are not grouped. It might be difficult to tell a group from a project without the indentation. We’ll definitely consider your feedback though, so thanks!

                              Just like task notes or project notes, team notes would allow you to provide a description and files to items at the Group, Team, or Organization level.

                                • The blue bar on the top that displays teams - hide/scroll, etc?

                                  I see that there have been blue bar requests and they are declined. I followed the recommended agency setup and added each client as a "team" and the bar took up 1/3 of our screen. The recommended setup is ideal - but only if you have a handful of clients. I'd love to see the blue bar scroll, have the ability to hide it, or something that prevents it from overtaking the screen as you grow your teams.

                                  • New Layout - Please give some old features back!

                                    Hi There!

                                    The new look is causing some usability issues that we as a team relied on.

                                    It would be very helpful if we could have some of the old features back... Such as:

                                    - Projects listed on the side of the task calendar. This is helpful for navigating, and planning upcoming projects

                                    - The ability to see other team members task calendar or list. This is something we really really relied on, most especially since we delegate so much.

                                    Thanks,

                                    • Private tasks within a shared team project

                                      Our team has a project, let's call it "Bedford". We have tasks that we all need to do in order for the larger project to get completed. I want to be able to add tasks that are for me only, that no one else really needs to see. The only way around this I can think of is if I create another list called "Bedford - Private" or something like that, where I jot down the things I need to do that no one even cares about or needs to care about.

                                      Is this possible or planned?

                                        We don’t plan on adding more complexity to our privacy model in Flow at this time. In the mean time, you and your team can use the filter bar to focus on just their own tasks in any list, or use the My Tasks list to see only their own tasks across all lists in the workspace.

                                      • Bring back names in chat popover

                                        A while back, the names of people in 1-to-1 chats disappeared from the little chat popover that can be opened from the header panel. I talked to support about this, and they let me know this wasn't an error, but intended behavior.

                                        For me, this makes it harder to scan the list to find who I'm looking for, so I would prefer having them re-introduced. The fact that the names of people in group chats are still visible makes things a little more confusing as well.

                                        I realize that the idea is probably that you're supposed to scan the list…

                                          As a user of the mobile app
                                          I want to be able to fix up the names of my tasks in as few touches as possible
                                          So that I can get back to doing other things.

                                          * At the moment, you have to open a task, tap edit, then change the name then tap save.
                                          * Better behaviour: open task, tap name = activate field
                                          * tap off = save field.
                                          * name of object only (... should really apply to names of any object that the screen is focussed on - i.e. project or task (sub-task)

                                          This is a…
