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.
Being able to associate a colour to a project would make the long list of projects down the left hand side of the screen look a bit less obtrusive.21 votes
It would be perfect to be able to sync Flow w/ Google Calendar, iCal, or Outlook, so that each team member see other team members' meetings and availability.
And also while assigning a task, currently users are only able to set due date. But, start date may also be relevant for planning.20 votes
We don’t have plans for this at this point in time, but certainly recognize its utility.
In the left nav - i would love to be able to collapse all. I have many projects, andr it is difficult when i first log in to getflow and all the porjects in the left nave are expanded. I always have to collapse them one by one.20 votes
It’s obvious that the sidebar is hurting your ability to focus on what’s most important to you. We’re interested in making projects easier to group and filter, and helping you cut out the noise. Plans to fix this are early stage at this point, but it’s on our radar. Thanks!
We use Redmine for developing software, and there's a possibility to design task statuses, transitions, etc.
Flow is missing this great feature and it would be totally acceptable if we had at least some fixed task statuses, like
Hey there! This isn’t on our roadmap for the foreseeable future, but another option that might tie you over for now is Kanban/sections. Using Kanban/project sections, you can actually create the statuses that each of the tasks in your project must move through before the project can be completed. These articles has a few will walk you through these two views:
Hope this helps in the meantime!
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.20 votes
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.
I would LOVE to be able to add custom fields to task items so I can track: Set Budget, Estimated Time, Actual Time, Completed Date (to compare performance of team against Due Date, Team Rate ($), Invoice Rate ($), Proft/Loss, etc. Then also the ability to do simple equations (to calculate est time vs actual time, profit/loss, etc.19 votes
We don’t have any plans to do anything like this anytime soon, but we can certainly recognize its utility, especially if you could filter and sort by these values as well.
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.19 votes
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!
Ideally a calendar view widget to add to home screen would be really useful.
A quick task creation widget would be useful, too.18 votes
Good idea! We’ll keep it in mind. No current plans to build it, though.
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?18 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 tools17 votes
We don’t have any near future plans for this specific feature.
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.
Would like to be able to choose which page I see by default when logging into Flow17 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 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.
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!16 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!
It would be nice if the default due date would be set to today or tomorrow. This would force the user to specify a date if not today and it saves time when adding a lot of tasks with unspecified due dates. In the current setting there is always a risk that an important task ends up in the pile at the end of your list because you forgot to specify the due date.
Would be even better if you can set your own default due date; always tomorrow / always today / always one week ahead / etc.16 votes
When selecting a team, list etc. it’d be nice to get a drop down list without having to guess the name of the item. This is especially the case when there’re lots of lists.
Thanks for the suggestion, there are no plans to fix this currently, but we’ll watch this request and listen to other sources for this coming up again.
Pasting unformatted text in to the OSX app doesn't seemed to be respected (i.e. nothing happens). Also the general formatting of text is a nightmare. Can't seem to indent bullet points to multiple levels for example. The pop-up format bar only appears when text is highlighted which seems awkward.16 votes
Hey, trying to get to the bottom of this. I just tested pasting into the Mac app, and it worked. Could you provide more details about that?
As for multiple indents, that’s not something we plan to offer with the visual editor—I would consider using bolding to separate sections or switching to the markdown editor (via Account Preferences > Text Editor)
Is there anything else that isn’t working or that you’d like to see? Thanks!
- Don't see your idea?
