  1. Dowloading tasks with a project name by date

    Currently when we download tasks to print in the "by due date" category, it doesn't show the project the task is associated with. it would be really nice to know what the project is.

    • iOS app - start with same view as last used

      Start the app using the last "view". I like to see the app display "my tasks" and sort by "Project" but every time I open the app it displays the dashboard.

        not planned  ·  SharaShara responded

        This is something that isn’t unique to Flow. Sometimes if the app goes out of memory it will load to the dashboard. If you are multi-tasking sometimes Flow just gets popped off the bubble and so we have to reload everything. We do remember the last workspace you used but that’s about as far as we currently go.

        I hope that helps explain it a bit better!

        • Hi - have you considered creating an inventory management software?

          An inventory management software that is simple, straightforward but allows for many moving parts and that can grow with the company.

              • Custom Keyboard Shortcuts

                Would be good if we could change some keyboard shortcuts to not interfere with global operating system related hotkeys like ALT+TAB.

                left arrow is not closing the pane as expected, [option/alt] tab does not hide the side bar, at least on Windows/Chrome because it is a global hot key in Windows for switching between windows.

                  • Export all tasks with applicable due dates to excel

                    I need to be able to export all tasks with due dates to a csv/excel file, not just project by project. I have too many projects to do individually. I see this as a must have feature for me to be able to use Flow. Otherwise, I love the simplicity of it and hope that you can add this feature so it would be actually usable for us.

                    • Adding comments via email

                      Would love to be able to add comments to a task via email. So, say we have a task "Approve design", and we receive that approval from the client via email. It'd be nice to simply forward that email to Flow so it'd appear as a comment under the "Approve design" task.

                      No idea if that's technically feasible without complicating things too much.

                      • chat contact list

                        It would be helpful if in the "Chat" section we could have all of our contacts populate as a contact list under the "Direct Messages" section instead of having to click on "Direct Messages" to open a directory. If we did have this contact list format, it would be cool to be able to sort or organize contacts into our own definable categories. Example attached.

                          Problem: Can't delete tasks quickly. Solution: when I grab a task, let me drag and drop it into a wastebasket icon. (Think dragging and dropping apps on an android phone! Super easy & cool.)

                            Hi! We do have a shortcut to quickly delete multiple tasks at once, or even a single task, and I’m wondering if it might help your situation :) You can select multiple tasks by holding down the shift key to select many tasks in a row, or the ctrl (windows)/cmd (mac) key to select multiple individual tasks. From there, you can press “Shift+Backspace” to delete all selected tasks in one go. You can also use the “shift+backspace” shortcut when the task pane is open to delete the currently open task. Hoping this trick is a help!

                            It would be super helpful to introduce Appointments, meetings, or scheduled conference calls. Our team constantly struggles to stay on the same page with this stuff.

                            • Only posted completed tasks to Slack channel

                              Really really loving Flow so far. Definitely summed up with the image on your landing page that the other PM tools are too light or total overkill.

                              One thing we would really like would be a setting that allows only _completed_ tasks to be posted to a Slack channel. This lets everyone know that people are being productive without junking up the channel too much with messages about tasks / dates being _created/set_

                              Thanks!

                              • See previous dates while setting due dates

                                Hi! One of the tasks that we use Flow for is keeping track of accounts payable through each stage of the process. When setting payment due dates on invoices (which may be, for example, due in 30 days), it would be great to be able to see dates prior to the current date in the calendar - this would be super helpful, for example, when assigning due dates on an invoice that I might have received a few days earlier than I'm creating the task.

                                      I think it is great that you have one application for web and mobile app.
                                      However, when using the mobile app I find the pale blue text unclear, could you not make it plain black text ?
                                      Also, it would nice to have a setting for font size for general text size such as normal, large, huge (just as there is in Android Settings). p.s. changing Android settings has not effect on your text/font size

                                        Is it possible to add additional fields to Memebers. Something like: bio, email, phone, position? It could be very useful.

                                        • Pin chat messages to chat room for quick reference

                                          In Chat I would like to be able to 'Pin' a message with in a chat (in Chat room or Direct message). This is a feature that is in Slack that I think would be awesome in Flow Chat.
