  1. Liquid Layout

    In order to access all the feature in the flow app, I have to have it open to a certain width, which for us, has a lot of wasted white space between the assignments and the upper menu bar/comment & flag buttons. This takes up valuable screen space that I would rather allocate to my projects. Can you switch to a more liquid layout that collapses to a narrower width but still makes the top right menu and task options available?

    • Link to full todo task, instead of task in sidepanel.

      It's so annoying when somebody shares a link to a post that it opens in the current / last visited project, and then shows the todo on the right panel... super confusing if you dont use flow much.

      • Manual time entry

        We do not need to use harvest in our workflows. (We do not sit at a desk and work on projects for our customers.) For example, an internal customer says "My computer is broken" or "My videocamera is broken" or "The production switcher isn't working." These are all tasks that take us to the customer's workspace in our building and require us to be hands on. (We're a TV network.) It would be nice to be able to recount the time spent and enter it manually.

        • Boolean Operator Support

          I think it would be great if flow offered boolean operator support.

          • Revert calendar behavior on overdue tasks

            Please-please revert back calendar behavior: on Mondays the top of my calendar is scrolled to today, hiding any tasks that has been assigned to me but not moved to this week. Without scrolling back in my calendar I will not see that I have tasks "behind".

            • Fix month labels in due date pop up calendar

              The calendar pop-up for setting due dates is quite confusing. The label at the top is often for a different month than is actually showing. For example, when I clicked on it today (April 6), the label at the top still read "March" even though it was mostly showing dates in April. This makes it quite difficult to figure out what month you are actually scheduling for.

              • Improved Task List Sorting

                I'd like to be able to filter a task list for an individual team member by day, week, month. This would help visualize the work load for that specific time frame only.

                  It would be nice to be able to change the "tiny" chat window to a bigger size. Sometimes I would appreciate to have a slightly bigger chat window :)

                    ...more elegant than creating a new project, copying all the info, and deleting the task.

                    • Add new sub-task at top of list

                      Working on tasks with a lot of subtasks means constantly scrolling through the task list to see new tasks, it would be great to be able to add sub-tasks to the top of the list without having to drag and drop to re-order (which can be tricky)

                      • "Today's tasks" should show section

                        The "Totday's Tasks" list in the Dashboard should show Project: Section: Task. Right now, it only shows Project: Task, so it looses the organization by section.

                        • chat in separate window or app

                          Much like the current Task application, I'd like to see a way to have the Chat as a separate window or application for the desktop client. I realise that we have that for Android/iOS and the mechanism of use for us is showing that we need to be able to view and work on our tasks separately to the chat. Using Chat as it stands means that we have to context switch and also that we're likely to miss notifications. This should go hand-in-hand with the other feature requests around greater integration between Chat and Tasks - otherwise we're going…

                            We don’t plan to create a separate desktop app for chat, though we do generally aim for multiple instances of Flow open on the same computer to stay in sync. We do have plans to more deeply integrate chat and tasks, including improvements to notifications so that nothing gets missed.

                          • 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.

                              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.

                                      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?

                                        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.
