You cant have team chat without am easy way to share GIFs. We need a Giphy bot.22 votes
Thanks for the suggestion!
I like to keep "My Tasks" and "Calendar" in "Sort by Date" and "list" view respectively. However if I log out and back in (seems to happen on certain refreshes or submit errors as well) a bug maybe? it defaults to list views which I don't like personally. It's annoying to have to change these view settings at every login. Any chance of tweaking so that it remembers our user preferences?22 votes
Agreed that this would be an improvement. We’re putting it in our backlog, but don’t have immediate plans to work on it. Thanks!
A native Windows Phone 8 app would be great!22 votes
We have no plans for a dedicated Windows 8 app at this time. Our mobile web app will, however, become more powerful as time goes on.
I would like to be able to archive workspaces. We use a workspace for each client we work with. Once all current projects are complete I would like to be able to archive and not miss previous history of work if they client opens a new project.21 votes
Still a good idea! :) It’s in our backlog, but not in this year’s plans.
When performing a search, all related results are returned. Frequently, all we want to see is open tasks. It would be nice to have a way to exclude deleted or completed tasks from our search when we want to - advanced search options. Maybe it could include the ability to select a date range, attachments, people, tags? Thank you!21 votes
I can see how advanced search options would be helpful. We’d like to build this, we just don’t have immediate plans to do so.
I'd like to be able to create a Flow that acts on tasks in Planner - this would allow users to automatically add Planner tasks into their Outlook tasks and/or SharePoint tasks list. It would also allow us to create more complex notifications.21 votes
We love the idea of being able to add guests to projects so that they can observe its progress, but would like there to be an option to restrict their ability to leave comments in tasks.
We don't want our guests to have the ability to directly interact with our team members. We'd prefer our project manager be the only one to communicate with them.
Please consider making this a feature as it would really help to eliminate the confusion a client can create when they try to insert themselves into conversations about tasks.21 votes
Ideally a calendar view widget to add to home screen would be really useful.
A quick task creation widget would be useful, too.21 votes
Good idea! We’ll keep it in mind. No current plans to build it, though.
Generally when I am scanning the dashboard, it is to keep up to date with what others on my team are doing. It would be really helpful ti have a filter which does all activity except my own for that use case.21 votes
We’ve started work on a dashboard that is better at helping you process the tasks that need your attention. A bonus is that it not longer repeats what you know you said.
Setting daily goals and prioritizing top tasks with a dynamic short list. A way of setting focus on a level above flagged task or the calendar.21 votes
It would be great to be able to see all comments from the tasks in a project on the project level. New to Flow, so it may be doable?21 votes
Hey, this isn’t exactly what you asked for, but today we added in project notes so that there’s a place to share important details about project progress and otherwise. We’re still planning to find a way to roll up project-level discussion, but thought I’d share a little update that might help. :)
When pasting multiple lines in a list, create one task per new line. Makes it easier to add items from an IM conversation, email thread, or importing from other project management tools20 votes
We don’t have any near future plans for this specific feature.
I think it would be a good idea to have a option to display in the main task view the subtasks of each task just below each one, indented end with a smaller font and checkbox. This could be even an expandable list when clicked or hovered the task. For me this improvement would provide a better view of how complicated the task are and how much work remains to be done.
To visualize what I have in mind I attach a file with a simple and fast draw. I believe you will do it in a more elegant way.20 votes
We don’t have any plans to enhance subtasks in such a way at this point in time.
Would like to be able to choose which page I see by default when logging into Flow19 votes
While there isn’t a way to select a default on which to land each time you log into the app, the app will remember the last page you were on when you were last in the app. So if you spend a lot of time in one view (or all your time in one view) the app should drop you there each time you open Flow.
I'd love to be able to star certain tasks and have them float to the top of each list. For example, we have a recurring task each month where we add social fodder to share on our social channels, and I find myself looking through a lot of tasks each time I want to find it. I wish I could have that one stay permanently at the top!18 votes
There are a few ways to get tasks to float to the top. You can flag it if it’s for your own personal reference; you can set a near due date and sort your views by due date; you can manually drag the task to the top of its list; or, you can create a section in its project for important tasks. Do any of those solve your problem? (/are you still having this problem?)
Update: in addition to the solutions above, we’re working on a long term solution to the scheduling and ordering of tasks. Thanks again for suggesting this!
Whilst you're working on project and task templates, it would be great to be able to duplicate a group of projects.
I have clients on a monthly retainer and so have a project group called Retained Work, with a separate project for each month.
I'd love to be able to duplicate the Retained Work group, including all monthly projects, and move to the relevant client's workspace.18 votes
I can totally see how this would be a useful feature but because you can duplicate projects at this time, duplicating groups is not on our immediate road map though it is something we are considering!
One of the reasons i leave ASANA is because they cant provide this simple feature. If a project have 10 sections with 30 tasks, it is unmanageable.17 votes
It would be really great if you could click a button within a Flow task to create a new Google Doc (or sheet) — and have flow automatically update the task with a link to the new associated Google Doc.
Right now, we have to log in separately to Google, create a doc, update the doc's sharing permissions, and then copy and paste a link to the doc back into the flow task. A more native integration would save lots of time!17 votes
We’ll never rule this out, but this is not on our immediate roadmap.
When forwarding an email from Gmail - it'd be great to have a link back to the original Gmail message. Given that gmail messages all have their own URL this could be feasible (?). This would be great for those tasks where you want someone else to respond to an enquiry etc.
...or maybe for extra points: be able to compose a reply directly in Flow. That'd be awesome17 votes
As cool as that would be, we don’t have plans to improve our Gmail integration in that way.
I am not sure why but I don't see any subtasks I complete in the dashboard. Because we use the subtask feature a lot, it's a shame not to see it in the dashboard.16 votes
We don’t currently have any plans to include subtask activity in the Dashboard.
- Don't see your idea?
