  1. 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:

      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.

        • sub-task has details hint

          Hello,

          we are evaluating Flow and i'm already quite addicted to the nice UI.

          One thing that bothers me -- not a stopper for us -- is : when adding details to a sub-task, there is no way to know if more details are present in the task (like a description) unless you open said sub-task.

          a bit of background. We are using Trello at the moment and one thing i don't like about it is that i can't paste a screenshot INSIDE a checklist item. We looked at Asana too, and FLOW is the only one that handles that…

          • Screen Reader Support

            It would be great if flow had better support for screen readers and other assistive technology used by people with disabilities.

            • Option to copy task with link back to original

              HI, I would love to have option to make a copy of a task rather than have to schedule it. Big tasks like tax return need doing each year i don't need another reminder, just ability to search previous year's entry so i can access all the relevant details and repeat.

              Ideally this copy option will include a link back to the task it was copied from. Would also be great for follow-ups, which is currently tedious to setup at the moment copy-pasting links.

              Thanks
              Alex

              • Privacy permissions for groups

                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.

                  • We would like to see a setting to disable notifications just for subtasks.

                    We would like to see a setting to disable notifications just for subtasks.

                    That way when a user is assigned multiple subtasks within a task it would hide the notifications. :)

                    • 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.

                              • Tile mode and 2 minor improvements

                                Hi, really like Flow so far. I'm coming from using Asana and Trello, so like the combination of features and ease of use of Flow and the simple, fresh look.

                                A few great additions would be:
                                1. In Kanban mode instead of 'show x subtasks' it would be more helpful to have '1/3 sub tasks' which can be clicked to display subtasks this is similar to Trello, where you can see how many subtasks you have completed at a glance, trello also turns it to green when you have completed all tasks '3/3 subtasks'

                                2. In list mode and Kanban…

                                    • Export chat archive

                                      It would be great to have the ability to export the chat archives so they can be saved and viewed offline for reference.

                                        • 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.
