  1. Task to be remained after completion

    Hi, it's annoying that all completed tasks in calendars disappear once we complete them. On calendar it's better we have them even if they are completed, to see how much work we've done so far with deadline. Please consider having a "to-do list" on calendar that will not be gone even if they are completed. Thanks.

      This feature does already exist in the form of the “Clear Completed Tasks” option. You can learn how to enable the setting in this support article: https://www.getflow.com/support/tasks/completing-tasks/. Unfortunately, because back-dating is not supported in the Flow calendar, all completed tasks will be pushed forward to “Today.” While we can appreciate the benefit of being able to view past dates/completed tasks in the Calendar view, the current functionality allows for faster load times not only in the calendar view, but throughout the app. We don’t have any immediate plans to change this functionality, but we’ll definitely revisit it at a future date.

    • Provide Support For Feedly

      I use feedly heavily and it would be awesome if flow integrated with this tool. It would allow me to share relevant information with team members in various projects. You can see feedly here:
      http://feedly.com

        At the moment, we don’t have any plans to introduce an integration with Feedly specifically, but we do plan to support a public API in the future, which will really open the door for all manner of integrations. We’ll be sure to let everyone know when that happens!

      • Make the section selection pulldown wider so you can see the full name when choosing a new category

        It drives me crazy that I can't see the tail end of the section name when trying to change the section for a task. See screenshot. All sections in the same project all look basically the same to me.

        • Add a checklist in comments section

          I usually just bullet point or number any notes in the comments section. A checklist could come in handy to let my team check off the items as they make progress.

              I'd love to be able to change privacy permissions for entire groups of projects, rather than having to go through and do each project within a group separately.

                Thanks Alexis. That’s certainly a level of control that would make privacy more flexible. We currently have privacy permissions control for Workspaces and Projects, but not for Tasks nor Groups.
                We’re looking at ways to keep this simple, obvious, and powerful.

              • Wild card to pull up tags in "filter by tags, list & keyword"

                You could achieve the result of a tags list w/o add'l clutter. What if you specify some character (i.e., ? or #) that if typed in the beginning of a query in"filter by tags, list & keyword" pulls up a list of an individual's tags.

                    • Stop Adding Delegated Tasks AFTER we've removed the 'assign'

                      So I delegated a task to someone as I was adding tasks, but I don't want it in my delegated tasks page as it's not my role to manage. But even though I UNASSIGNED the person from the task and they CLAIMED IT, it's still in my delegated tasks. This is ridiculous, makes no sense whatsoever; it makes the delegated tasks page less usable. Please remove this.

                                • Project Option for to Specify a Default User for New Tasks

                                  Project level setting to Assign Default User for all Tasks. Previous feature removed the burden of moving Assigned user but now you have to manual assign yourself to Tasks. By providing a Project Level Default setting you can have the best of both features. I don't user Private Tasks because there are no sections and I need others to be able to assign me tasks. Also there are some projects where only a single person will be performing tasks and they should be able to have a Default Assignee on a Per Project Basis.

                                          are we pushing projects?
                                          what projects have we finished in the last quarter?
