  1. Pop-out Chat Window

    I’d love to be able to pop out the chat feature in a small window outside of the main view.

      You have left! (?) (thinking…)

      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.

      • Support custom emoji

        It would be great to add some own emoji. Clear and simple :)

        • Native Chat integration in iOS iPad app

          It would be nice to have chat included as part of the iOS iPad app similar to Mac version. The separate chat app works fine for iPhone, but does not flow when working from an iPad.

          • Remember sorting choices

            When resorting project view in the Android app (like changing from Due Date to Section), remember selection. Now, it goes back to Due Date once I go to another project.

            • Unassigned as default @ Android

              To make the Android app work more similar to the desktop/web app, I suggest:

              New tasks to be set as unassigned

              • Mattermost integration

                Add integration with Mattermost—Mattermost can take Slack messages and its own format is similar to Slack webhooks, so adding Mattermost integration on top of Slack integration is relatively trivial.

                • Ability to share tasks across various projects

                  It would be really great if a task could be added to various projects, maybe even across various teams. Our company is very small, so it is common for us to work on projects with some overlap. For example, we are currently reworking our pricing structure, so we have a higher level project related to that, but there are tasks in that project that are also part of our website redesign project. Duplicating tasks in various places without syncing is very clunky. (For the record, Asana does have this functionality.)

                      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!

                    • Show sections in Daily Digest

                      Update email notifications layouts.

                      Relatively new user, loving GetFlow. One thing lacking is a more detailed email notification for Daily Digests. Current format of line items include Workspace | Project | Task. Showing "Section" within that drilldown before Task in that view would be an immense help for my team.

                      I also think that the layout could change to be a 2-column Kanban view for the email notification would be a marked improvement.

                      My only negative feedback at this time. Keep up the good work.

                      • Taskbar Shows # of Unread Messages

                        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. :/

                            instead of going to another screen, when viewing completed task, can you just list them below the current tasks on the same page. Sometimes you want to compare the list without having to go back and forth between screens.

                              We don’t have plans to build this feature at the moment. They currently exist on separate pages to cut down the amount of scrolling a user would have to do and to keep the projects feeling clean and accomplishable. If you want to compare two tasks, one completed, one not, you might want to open the completed task in another browser tab so you can view them side by side. You can also enable a feature on the workspace page that will retain all completed tasks in your active projects. You can read more about that feature here: https://www.getflow.com/support/tasks/completing-tasks/. Thanks!

                              This is simple request… when doing a search, please add “section” titles to the query

                              for example… if you had a list of tasks for painting the house… and a section for each room… then if you had a task for “paint swatches to check color” and you had several of those tasks, each one for a different room (bedroom, kitchen, etc.)… I’d like if I could search for “bedroom swatch” and have it pull up the task “paint swatches to check color” that was in the bedroom section…

                              I know we could use tags to help with this… but…

                              • Additional chat functionality

                                We are going to switch from slack and vk.com chats to flow one.

                                Some additional functionality would be great:
                                1. Resend messages from different chats (e.g. send a message from direct discussion to chat room)
                                2. Chat filtering: all tasks, files, liked messages from discussion.
                                3. Add «opened tasks indicator» near each chat (how much tasks are still opened and need to solve)

                                      Thanks for the suggestions Cornelius. This is another one that we’d likely need to integrate with a third party product for. Thanks!

                                      Currently, to me slack integration is pointless. Or at least project linking. Sure I can get updates on progress, but only one way. I cannot send information to flow without knowing all kinds of information I'd need from the front-end UI anyways. So im just wasting time since there is no way Ill remember project name exactly.

                                      • Exclude tasks assigned to me from Subscribed view

                                        I’m not technically subscribed to them anyway, the subscribed field is blank. And It’s redundant when I have so many other ways to see tasks assigned to me.

                                        • Calendar Year View

                                          The immediate issue I have with most of these platforms is that I can't see an overview for the year. I love that every group has their own calendar, that I can see an overview of the groups combined, but I can't see an overview of the year within the groups or as an overview. Often, I am planning 3 months out and it's helpful to see the full calendar year for this.
