  1. Slack Message Action

    The new slack message action is incredible and works with competing applications so well. I would love to see Flow jump into this as well. It's created for this app!

    • Start and End Dates on Sections

      We use Sections to build phases for a project. We'd love to have optional start and end date associate with each Section. And we'd love to be able to open up a Project in the Timeline view to view those Sections underneath. Thanks!

      • Catch Up should show tasks with no due dates

        The "Catch Up" section shows tasks that you could get started on next. I've noticed that tasks with no due dates (yet are assigned to you) do not show up here. I think they should.

        • Shared calendar, for all.

          We all know that you can get your personal workspace calendar to use in iCal. But how about letting the owner see all employees workspaces/things in a calendar?

          Would be amazing to be able to see and maybe feed up on our TV together with the toggl-feed of hours :)

            planned  ·  Cyrus Molavi responded

            While we don’t plan to bring in shared calendar syncing, we are looking at ways to share what everyone’s working on while maintaining privacy permissions. It’s a tricky one, but we want to take a shot.

          • Private Tasks without Teams

            My team has a lot of diverse tasks, some that only involve one person (namely myself). It's a small quirk, but it frustrates me that I have to categorize my private tasks into a team. Half of my job has nothing to do with those teams at all and being forced to categorize them into a team label that doesn't relate to the actual task has multiple times caused me to overlook and lose the task in my task list or calendar.

            Is it possible to make team selection optional for private tasks?

            • Have a coloured flag system for prioritising tasks

              Is it possible to have a simple coloured flag system to prioritise tasks (it's a great function that ToDoIst has). So instead of just flagging a task you can click on it to change the colour to white, yellow, orange, red etc depending on its priority or when you click/hover on the flag it gives you the colour options to choose from.
              It would be great if anyone or at least the person who created the task could flag it as a priority for all to see. It would stand out a lot more than just having a barely visible…

              • Link to Group and Project from overview

                Go to a project from the overview.
                When viewing tasks in the overview, I can easily select the task, but it would be nice to be able to navigate directly to the project from the list.
                The name of the project or group should be a link to that project or group.

                • Do not immediately close deleted task's panel

                  I often find myself accidentally hitting the delete button on a task before leaving my comment on why I'm deleting this task. The problem is that once the delete button is hit, the panel closes, I can no longer restore the task and leave my comment without hunting it down and re-opening it.

                    not planned  ·  Shara responded

                    Might I suggest checking the task off as complete as opposed to deleting it? Then you can access the task as needed (deleted tasks are only available for 30 days).
                    I will check on the delay between posting a comment and deleting.

                  • Email Sender Name is the Workspace Name, not Flow. Also better email preview text.

                    I think it would be tremendously helpful if the sender name for Flow emails contained the workspace name as well.

                    for example:
                    Flow: Workspace Name
                    [List Item] Task Name

                    As opposed to how it is now:
                    Flow
                    [List item] Task

                    Right now I have an inbox full of emails from simply - Flow, which makes it hard to know which workspace they are about as we tend to work in multiple workspaces at the same time.

                    Also the preview text in most email programs contains the non useful text like: Reply to this email to leave a comment on this…

                    • Ball in Court Assignee

                      I think the addition of a "ball in court" section would be useful. If a task is assigned to me but I can't move forward on that task until the creator responds to a comment I made on the task it would be helpful to have the option to put that task in their court somehow.

                      • rename tag

                        Sort by tag in the task list which would then allow for bulk tag assignment through drag and drop functionality much like sorting by date or owner.

                        • Add a "My Comments" Feature

                          It would be very useful if a "My Discussions" section was added under "My Tasks". This section would provide users with a list of the Tasks they are subscribed to that have active comments. Ideally "My Discussions" would be sorted by Group (just as "My Tasks" is).

                          If there could be an indicator next to each comment showing the date of the last entry that would also be very useful.

                                It would be great if there was an option to create tasks that have no checkboxes so that they serve more as a step-by-step reference guide that can't be ticked off.
                                ToDoIst have this option and it's really helpful for ongoing tasks that need to be done regularly (e.g. "check for any new customer enquiries" - this needs doing a few times per day so needs to serve as a reminder task but doesn't require being ticked off each time.

                                        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.

                                          You can do it from OneDrive for Business but not SharePoint?
