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.
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.
It would be incredibly helpful if we could input a per-card Time estimate. So Task A might be projected to take 5 hours, for example. And we could easily see this field on the card in Kanban view
The next step would be to get a global view of Total estimated time assigned to each team member, or each project.16 votes
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!
can you please provide an option so the task calendar (monthly view) can be printed out?16 votes
The Harvest integration works seamlessly, but I don't have a way to refer to time that may have been added to a task in the past, without opening Harvest and clicking on the project or date.
I need to see time added to Harvest as a comment in the Flow task, e.g. "Harvest time tracking for [Harvest Client], [Harvest Project], [Harvest Task], [HH:MM] logged."16 votes
This is a good idea. We’ll keep it in mind. Thanks!
Right now - when I create a task, it auto-assigns it to myself. I have to manually click off my name, and then it automatically subscribes me. Which means - every time I "quickly" create a task - I have to click three times to un-assign or re-assign the task. This is cumbersome. I'd suggest automatically assigning & subscribing no-one. Then you can assign people when needed.16 votes
Have you tried creating tasks with keyboard shortcuts? Hit enter to create a task, then tab through the fields to reassign or remove people. Alternatively, create tasks from the center pane of Unassigned, and you won’t need to remove the assignee.
It'd be great if you could divide private tasks into sections as well.
That way, you can keep some personal things as well as work related things there, or seperate into seperate projects or ideas... or whatever you can think of.15 votes
Great idea! For now, you can make a project private and sections will be there for you "_
I would like to be able to click on a files icon when I select a task that lists all of the files attached to that task.15 votes
We do not currently have plans for this, though that may change as tasks become more powerful, requiring more organization.
Office 365 group integration which allows Flow to act on Group conversation (emails) and Calendar events as well as integration with Microsoft Teams would be really useful15 votes
Are there any plans to have a non browser based app?15 votes
We do not have any plans at this point for a native Mac app. If demand swells or we determine there are benefits that outweigh the development time/cost, you can be sure we’ll consider it.
We are using the group feature to group smaller projects that belong to a bigger, umbrella project. We initially started with several teams, but ended up having to do a lot of work to move our groups from those extra teams back to one team as we found that moving tasks between teams wasn't possible. The ability to move and duplicate an entire group to a new team would be very helpful! Thank you!15 votes
While this is not on our roadmap at this time, we’ll definitely keep it in mind for future updates. For now, you can, if you haven’t already, use the “move projects between workspaces” feature, as well as project duplication, which you can learn about in these two articles: https://www.getflow.com/support/projects/duplicating-projects/
Since it's a web app (yay for accessibility.. boo for everything else), I often find that when I switch back to it's tab it's now out of date. Most confusing the next morning, when the calendar is off by a day. Usually has be planning an easy day because I'm ahead of schedule and ends with a panic.
Auto refresh on a 3600s timeout? Please?15 votes
We plan to fix this in the near future.
We would like to be able to attach document from Microsoft OneDrive.15 votes
It would be great if flow allowed team members to do video and/or audio conferencing with each other14 votes
It would! Judging by the difficulty that many companies have faced building a solution for video and audio conferencing, the likely solution here would be for us to integrate with a third party product.
The "Add a project description" is taking a lot of space and is unnecessary for me. On the web version you can "Hide details" but it only slides to the left. On the mac app the "Hide details" doesn't work at all. Suggestion: Hide completely that section.14 votes
Hi! If you haven’t already, we encourage you to check out the new Flow Beta – we’ve made a change to project descriptions there to completely hide them and keep them hidden :) If you’re interested in trying out the beta, instructions on how to become a beta user are here: https://www.getflow.com/support/account/flow-beta and instructions on how to see the new Flow and a quick overview of what has changed can be found here: https://www.getflow.com/guides/new-flow-beta
It would be nice to have the ability to have a task repeat xx days/weeks/months *after* completion rather than every xx days.14 votes
We have no near-future plans to offer this feature.
The right hand column should be immediately ready to edit your tasks without clicking "edit" and "save" once you're finished. It's a waste of time. If I click on a task to twirl out the right column, it's because I'm already prepared to make an edit or add a comment. "save" is silly to me because this is not some long text document which I can accidentally loose - I'm switching subscribers! If I accidentally to the wrong person its an easy fix. Thanks!13 votes
- Don't see your idea?
