    • 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.

        • Reorder tasks (Android)

          To be able to work on the mobile along with desktop, I suggest:

          Possible to reorder tasks in the Android app (drag & drop something similar to other task apps).

          • 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.

            • Assign person when commenting on task

              Hi! It's ofter usecase when I need to re-assign complex task to another person and leave comment for him when I did my part. I think it will be nice UX if user can do it in one batch here https://www.dropbox.com/s/quv09ylgw0rx5gm/Screenshot%202015-12-14%2011.26.56.png?dl=0 when posting comment on task. Currently I need to post comment and then go to edit mode to re-assign

                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!

                • Customize Notifications

                  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…

                      As a user of Flow with Groups and Projects
                      I want to view a summary of my projects within a group

                      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…

                      • Image Viewing

                        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.

                            Thanks for getting in touch! This isn’t a feature that’s made it’s way onto our roadmap. But we do have a desktop app for Mac and will very soon have a desktop app for Windows. Having the desktop open to chat while you work on other things in the browser is a really great way to keep up with your team without having to jump between browser tabs all the time. Hopefully this can serve as a workaround for now :)

                          • Draggable names during task edits

                            It would be ideal if we could drag names about while editting the tasks. Right now we have to click off the task, then type the same name in subscribe.

                            Also - it is inefficient to automatically subscribe someone once you've removed them from the assigned task.

                                        Currently, this is possible when you export as a PDF (sections are shown). If you’re looking for the horizontal orientation of a Kanban board, then that is something that will need to be built. Thanks for the suggestion!

                                        In the flow taskbar icon- can we get a little number like other apps do that show how many chat messages are currently "unread"? If I miss a notification the chances of me checking chat are slim.

                                          Unfortunately, that’s not something we can do in the task bar for Windows. We looked into best practices and Microsoft’s requirements, and that’s not the intended use of the task bar. Sorry to say, cause I could see how that’d be helpful. :/
