  1. 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…

    • Parent and sub-task due date linking

      Subtask due dates:

      I like that subtasks can have individual due dates.

      But if I set the due date of the parent task, I think the subtasks (if unassigned or are new) should have the same due date as the parent task.

      Especially when I go to the Project view and sort by date - its not good to see all my subtasks with unassigned due dates when their parent task does!

      • Mobile App - tap task name to edit name

        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)

        • I am tired of having to re-sign into the app on my phone.

          I am not sure if anybody else experiences this, but I seem to have to re-log into the flow chat application on my iPhone 1-2 times a week. It is starting to get annoying. If there is a fix that will address this this I am all ears.

          • Improve the "View Completed Tasks" option

            Currently, if we manually clear completed tasks, and then later click on "View Completed Tasks", they just show up in an unorganized list by themselves. We'd like to be able to view them in-line where they were before they were manually cleared (but still "completed"). That way we can see where they previously fit in with the remaining open tasks (basically, it would just "undo" the clear completed tasks).

            • Save multiple notes in a task instead of just one

              In an individual task one can save multiple files. It would be very useful if one could also save multiple notes instead of only one. This would allow you to name notes, divide note subject material, and stay more organized.

              • Add overview favourites

                I'm currently spending a lot of time navigating between chat and different workspaces to get to some common projects. The "Overview" tab (visible when multiple workspaces are enabled) is currently a bit anaemic, just a "Favourites" list with defaults in it.

                I'd love to have my workspace favourites promoted to this view as well so that I have one pace to quickly navigate through common projects.

                  I have a task that is due the first and third Thursday of the month. There is no way for me to schedule this. Review Microsoft's scheduling in Outlook Tasks and mimic those capabilities.

                    We do not have plans to offer more complex due dates for tasks at this point in time. You’ll unfortunately have to create two separate tasks.

                  • Alfred Workflows

                    I use Alfred v2 and its workflow feature in great extent.
                    I'd like to be abel to add tasks directly to a workspace/list by writing it in Alfred. This can ofc be achieved by making Alfred send Flow a task created from a email, but that seems lika a rather round about way of making that happen.

                    If I just had the option to write tasks with querys into url paths this would be as simple as pie! :D

                    • Group together multiple notifications on Android

                      Each notification from GetFlow shows up as a separate icon and notification on Android, requiring me to clear tens of notifications several times a day to keep my notification bar and panel from being completely dominated by these tiny notifications. As per the Android design guides, notifications from the same app shouls group when there are more than four. Android system is supposed to group them itself if the app doesn't do it, so I wonder how/why/if the GetFlow devs broke this built-in functionality somehow? I'd like my notifications bar back, please. In the meantime I have disabled all mobile…

                          Feedback form in iOS app.
                          As a mobile user I want to provide feedback without leaving the app so that I can improve Flow whilst staying in the flow.

                          Current state: I have to remember the issue, go to the online or desktop version and then submit feedback (i.e. what I'm doing now...). This is inconvenient, disruptive and means that ideas will be lost.

                          Cheers

                              I have much duplication in my job. For instance we want to on-board all of our customers in the same way to ensure a consistent approach. To do this I will create a template project with some basic tasks I need to complete for all new customers during the on-boarding process.

This usually involves the need to add a new task to the template and often the need to replicate that task to…

                                  Hey Flow,

                                  We are a couple of companies under the same owner. We have people in various positions that need to access both organizations. It would be great to be able to navigate between multiple organizations and see notifications as they come, rather than flip back and forth and check for updates.

                                    I can see how this would be annoying. We don’t have plans to enable viewing multiple teams at once, so there are two workaround options available:
                                    - have the people that work for both companies have two browser windows open (in incognito / private mode) so that they can flip between windows a little more quickly; or
                                    - combine both companies to be on the same Flow “team” and make workspaces locked so that the right people can only join the right workspaces.

                                  • Options when adding new projects (top of list, new indicator)

                                    As a creator of projects with many existing projects already
                                    I want to have straightforward access and visual cues
                                    So that I can find and move my projects around.

                                    When adding a new project, the project always appears at the bottom of my list. This behaviour is OK, however... I have a number of projects and the new one - that I'm working on - appears right at the end. I then have to move the project to the correct place. It would be easier (for me anyway) to have the new project at the top of the list.

                                    • The ability to assign a task to a team you're not a member of or have a place for tasks that can be created outside of teams

                                      It would be great to have the option for anyone to create a task for any other team, even if they're not a member of that team. For example, if I've got some junior admin staff who I want to have restricted access to everything else, I don't want them to be on the main admin team but if something come up that they can't deal with, it would be great if they could create a task for the admin team (even though they're not a member of that team) for them to look into.
                                      Another idea could be to…

                                        Not everyone on a team needs to see everything is being done or to "catch up." It would be nice to be able to remove the notification badge.

                                          I use Slack for some companies, and Howdy is a wonderful help for running stand-ups. This would would be a helpful addition, and perhaps supporting integrations with BotKit for chat.
