  1. Advanced repeating task options

    I have recurring tasks for work that must be scheduled for the first of each month. The problem is that the first of each month isn't necessarily a business day, it quite frequently will be on a weekend. I'd love it if you could add the ability for me to create recurring tasks that occur on the closest business day after the first of the month (or the first of the month if it DOES happen to be a business day).

    • Custom Today View (Marking tasks for "Today" or "Working on")

      Maybe I haven't discovered how to do this on the new Flow Beta, but here is something I have always wanted.

      Because Flow doesn't have a "Today" concept, I manually flag tasks I need to work on today, and so I am always using the "Flagged" view. I also have lots of items that might become due today as well, but they live under "Upcoming", and I rather work from one view, so I then have to manually flag them so they are seen under "Flagged".

      It would be nice for an option when assigning a task a date, to…

        We are working towards creating a great way to plan your day. We see the need to be able to look through the tasks on your plate so that you know what’s next. You’ll be the first to know when we’re digging into the details.

      • Kanban for Project Groups

        Would love to have a Kanban view for Project Groups in which each card shown is a Project rather than a specific task. That way you could get a high level overview of what phase(s) each project is in without having to look at a huge list of individual tasks.

            While we would love to offer localization in future updates, we’re still a small team that is unable to offer support in those languages as well. We will absolutely revisit this feature when we have the resources needed to make it really amazing.

            • Create an Easy Import from CSV

              Many task programs have an import/export feature. I have not been able to find one here. An easy import feature would give users incentive to move from other platforms (RTM, Google, etc) I currently have hundreds of notes that have been sitting in a file on my computer. If I were to be able to import them they could turn into tasks. I am not willing to do it one at a time. Too busy.

                Would be nice to have the option to manage tags more actively. A separate page or sidebar that allows you to add, edit, or delete unused tags would be ideal.

                  We don’t have plans to turn tags into a manageable collection of options that can be edited or deleted. As it stands now, tags disappear from auto-completion when there are no longer any open tasks with those tags.

                  • Numbering Tasks - Templates

                    My team uses a lot of templates. For example, when we get a new client, this list of tasks needs to be completed. The order of these tasks is KEY in successful completion of the process. It would be nice if we could number the tasks in the list and they would stay in order.

                    Right now, we simply add numbers to the title of the task (1.A, 1.B, etc.) but then as soon as we change the order in which the list is sorted, they become totally out of order. Another issue with this manual method is that when…

                      We don’t plan to prefix numbers in any task view, but the “List, manually” view maintains its sort. So if you need to see the project in sequence, that’s the way to go. Thanks for your suggestion!

                      Would be great to be able to save searches to the favorites section.

                        • A view for the workload of organizations

                          Our project managers often ask the question on what a person in our organization is working on and what to prioritise next. In the calendar we can see the tasks of a person that has a due date but there isn't any view of all the assigned task of a person. Basically it's the same functionality as "My Tasks" but for each persons of your team. The best would be to have this view on Overview to see all tasks across all teams.

                          Thanks.

                            While I find the current blue/white Flow theme to be very simple, it might be nice to provide alternative color schemes (still clean and slick, though, of course). Or, maybe allow users to set their own colors to certain parts of the app using specific color codes (e.g., sidebar background #FFFFFF).

                                    This is not planned, but it’s possible to see kanban view on your iPad. Log into Flow from Safari, and “Request desktop site” via the share sheet.

                                    The current Week view shows week after week, so it's more like a "months", or "weeks", view. Can we have a "single week" view, in order to focus on the current week and nothing else? It's my most used view on the current Flow.

                                    • Gmail Gadget

                                      Create a Gmail gadget that allows you to create a task directly from your Gmail interface. We were able to do that with a CRM solution called WorkEtc. There were buttons at the bottom of every email, that allowed you to assign any email to a Task, List, Workspace (different terms in Worketc, but same concept). This allows for a complete and thorough task list.

                                      Right now, I find myself starring emails as a task reminder to follow up, and also having to check Flow for other tasks. It redundnat to create a task in flow to respond to an…

                                        My favorite part of being able to create a task in chat is that the task appears right in the conversation.

                                        It would useful for my team to be able to mention tasks in the chat view for tasks that already exist.

                                          We were just talking about this the other day, and plan to take a crack at it some time this year. This would be quite handy.

                                          With the new Chat functionality, it'd be great to have a chat related to a project (or at least a workspace) - this would allow the team to chat in context not have to go to a different space. Ideally, a third pane or some way of keeping the context would be good (stuffed if I know how you'd implement that...). Our early experimentation with the chat function is that it feels a little disconnected from the projects.

                                          B.

                                            We’d love to bring discussions closer to projects. This is something we’re planning to do. Thanks!
