  1. Integrate with Zendesk

    It would be wonderful if my two favorite business software choices could integrate with each other.

    • Do not auto check-off subtasks

      The recent improvements to subtasks is useful in many ways, but there are some side effects that, perhaps, weren't anticipated. :(

      The new subtasks have pretty much made "Catch Up" useless. I've gone from 15 items in my Catch Up, to now 50. Most of which are subtasks, that were automatically checked off, but not always actually done. Catch Up, since it's upgrade, has been a key feature in our usage of Flow; it's very important that the completions and comments and changes reflected there are accurate.

      We like having the checklist in our tasks; especially repeating tasks. Some days,…

      • Send tasks to Flow from sharing in iOS

        As a mobile iOS user
        I want to share items on my iPhone or iPad directly to a Flow task
        So that I can create Flow tasks from other contexts and have the details I need at hand.

        Many apps are able to share natively to others - ideally I could select to add Flow to my list of apps that I can share to and then be able to send the item I'm working on to the app.
        - share goes to notes or attachments
        - needs to be in the main "activities" option in iOS.
        - cf. OmniFocus,…

            • All work view

              Now we can see 'All activity', but not 'All tasks' throughout a team. We can only do that per user, or through the calendar (with due dates informed).

              This would be useful at a team ownership level to have a global view of work status and assignments.

              • Make it easier to find and Like completed Tasks

                As the Teams Leader, I like to acknowledge completed tasks by "liking them". If I miss a day or two, It can be cumbersome to scroll through the dashboard to find all the completed tasks to like. Maybe there is a way you could make completed tasks stand out more, or filter the dashboard to see only content that has been liked/not liked.

                Thanks,

                  We’ve started work on a simplified Dashboard that groups relevant activity and brings it to your attention in a way that’s easy to work through quickly. We’ll keep you updated.

                • Place an "All Projects" list in the Favorites menu

                  Provide an "All Projects" list in the favorites menu, similar to the Archived Projects. This list shows active, complete, and archived projects with the ability to filter.

                    When I create a group and put projects underneath, I'll sometimes come back to find that the Group no longer exists, or the projects have somehow moved outside of the group.

                      • iOS subtasks with further visual indicator

                        In the app, have a way of showing and hiding the sub tasks.

                        Maybe indented? Would look easier on the eye - the current indicator reminds me of the repeating task indicator.

                            • option for task view below selected task not to the right

                              When using e-mail (outlook) I always have the preview pane showing below the message I have selected. Outlook has the option to show this on the right or not at all.
                              In flow when you select a task it appears to the right of the selected task and some info is truncated due to lack of screen.
                              If we had the option to display the selected task below the task list this would allow for far more info to be displayed on screen.

                              For me it would be by far my preferred view.

                              Lee.

                                  This isn’t on our roadmap for the time being, but we’ll definitely keep it in mind. In the meantime, one easy way to reassign tasks is to sort your projects by person and then drag and drop the task from one user’s section to another. Fewer clicks involved with this option!

                                    It would be great to be able to customize notifications a little more, for instance a louder alert, something more than a boing alert (whistle, train horn, chime, dog barking, something else more obvious) because the current boing at the current volume might as well be non-existent if you are on the phone or speaking with a colleague. It is just too soft. Also, it would be nice for the icon in the task bar to be able to blink when there is a new DM or Chat that is unread, so if we walk away from our desk and…

                                        Collapse projects in group view

                                        As a user of Flow with Groups and Projects
                                        I want to view a summary of my projects within a group
                                        and be able to expand and see the details of the tasks in the projects
                                        So that I can get a overview of my projects and tasks.

                                        When I click on the "Group" in the left hand sidebar, the details of the projects and tasks are shown in the main window, this can be a little too detailed. I would like to be able to "collapse" the project groups and see just the name…

                                          In an item's image viewport I would love to be able to click the image to view it at a larger size versus the smaller target of the button. Clicking an image is a standard interaction on the web so it feels wrong to have it do nothing when you click on it.

                                          Additionally would be great if using the arrow keys on the keyboard or clicking icons you could pan through images associated with the item.
