  1. Daily Digest: Option to Not Include "My Completed Tasks"

    Presumably, we all remember the tasks we ourselves completed only yesterday. While it's valuable to track *others'* progress, it would be more efficient to allow users to optionally NOT include their own completed tasks in daily email reminders.

      We don’t have any current plans to offer more nuanced control over the Daily Digest email.

    • Subscriptions to sections of a project

      There is currently no way to subscribe to a specific project section but that's a great idea. Right now you would have to get someone to mention you in a comment or reassign the task to you when they moved it.

      • Jira-Style sprint management

        We use Jira for development and would love to use Flow if it had some of the tools needed for scrum/agile (story points, burndown, project planning, project board etc).

        • Improve Archive

          The archive function is almost unusable. We make a lot of tasks and archive a lot of projects. It is near impossible to find something in archive when a significant amount of time has past.

          • Default sorting preference

            Provide the default sorting preference to be applied to all newly created lists. Change in sorting preference per list will support changes for that specific list.

              We don’t have any plans for specific advanced features like this. All lists begin unsorted (i.e. you can reorder your tasks via drag and drop) until you resort it yourself. Flow remembers your last sort for every list.

            • Project Planning - show Team

              Is there a reason why the Team name isn't included in the Project Planning view? We're sometimes using same names for (similar) projects, but can't tell them apart in the Project Planning view.

              It's done in the Calendar view, so why not Project Planning view?

              • Merge incomplete tasks into one

                It would be very useful to have a way to merge duplicate tasks into each other, link related tasks and otherwise describe task dependencies. The existing task linking feature is nice, but insufficient because it requires more maintenance (tasks should be linked both ways, so people need to remember to comment on both tasks with the relationship to the other), and muddies up the task history (because marking tasks as complete is misleading when the task wasn't actually completed).

                • Add "Show completed tasks" to projects pulldown

                  I like the "hide completed tasks" feature as shown in the attached screenshot. I'd like to be able to toggle it to see completed tasks in situ alongside other uncompleted tasks, rather than clicking to view the completed tasks.

                  • Vacation reminder

                    I think it would be very helpful to be able to set time spans that you are on vacation/not working.

                    These spans would either:
                    - not allow task assignments.
                    - have notifications stating you are not available.

                    If the person assigning a task is unaware that you are not working, then they think a task is attended to, but you may not see that you were assigned the task. Even when you are "off work" you have to concern yourself with tasks being assigned to you while you are out.

                      • Export tasks filtered by tag

                        I have a regular 1-1 with my boss - covering tasks across a variety of lists. I have her name as a tag so I can pull up what I have agreed with her. If items on this tag could be exported in the same way as lists are that would be ace.

                          • prevent my projects being made private

                            Other users are able to take shared projects I've created and make them private. It'd be nice to be able to have the project's creator need to sign off on that.

                              As simple as the title suggests. Often I will create a long list of tasks for a new project for example and it is very time consuming having to click on edit for every single task

                                While we don’t currently have plans to create a keyboard shortcut for setting due dates, you could do a quick due date update by viewing the Calendar, filtering it by your list, and then drag and dropping the tasks to their new due dates.

                                  I would like to have a setting that would allow me to cause tasks I add to be assigned to me by default. Similarly it would be nice to be able to set a default due date rule (e.g. by default due date is today or the end of the current week or x days from today). At a minimum, I would like a user to be able set those defaults globally for all tasks they add, but it could also be useful to be able to set per user per project. Defaults I set should never be applied for…

                                    We just starting to use flow and loving it. But just want to request an option to receive daily summary of tasks for Subscribers something similar to daily digest by email. Currently, we need to go into flow to check overdue tasks for subscribers. It will be good to have daily review of those tasks by email.

                                      When looking back for old tasks, it's very useful to have tasks grouped by the section they belonged to. Right now the only option is tasks ordered by date.

                                        You have left! (?) (thinking…)

                                        Hey Matheus,

                                        It might be worthwhile to check out our “Manually Clear Completed Tasks” setting. It’s a workspace specific setting and is a bit hard to find, also you’ll need an Owner to enable it for the workspace. You can get to it by clicking “Workspaces” from the drop down menu, clicking the drop down menu to the right of the workspace name, “Edit Workspace”.

                                        This setting allows you to leave tasks where they are after they’ve been completed, and you can manually clear them away from the Project Name drop down menu.

                                        Hope this helps!

                                        Jesse

                                        When I am in chat tab and a task is open on right hand side, the timestamps for comments are not getting updated.

                                        So if someone commented on a task 1 minute ago, the task always shows "1 minute ago" in task panel regardless of how much time passed.

                                        • Add share extensions in the iOS apps.

                                          Am using CloudMagic now. It offers integration with Wunderlist, ToDoist, Things...but no Flow. Emailed CM. They said all it would take is for share extensions to be provided via Flow.
