  1. Time added to Harvest should show as a comment in a task

    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."

    • Auto-Assign Tasks is Unhelpful

      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.

        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.

      • Adding sections in private tasks

        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.

          Great idea! For now, you can make a project private and sections will be there for you "_

        • File attachments should be a separate option from comments

          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.

            We do not currently have plans for this, though that may change as tasks become more powerful, requiring more organization.

          • Standalone Mac App

            Are there any plans to have a non browser based app?

              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.

            • Move groups between teams

              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!

              • Out of date info

                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?

                • Provide Video Collaboration Support

                  It would be great if flow allowed team members to do video and/or audio conferencing with each other

                    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.

                  • Include link to Gmail forwarded email

                    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.

                    Cheers
                    Ben

                    ...or maybe for extra points: be able to compose a reply directly in Flow. That'd be awesome

                      As cool as that would be, we don’t have plans to improve our Gmail integration in that way.

                    • Repeating tasks based on completion date

                      It would be nice to have the ability to have a task repeat xx days/weeks/months *after* completion rather than every xx days.

                      • Forget This "Edit" and "Save" Business!

                        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!

                        • Collapse Sections

                          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.

                          • Option to delete dashboard activity

                            Ex: when I tweak names of tasks, for example, I don't want that cluttering up my activity history. Option to delete these from dashboard history so it's less cluttered and items remain relatively equal in importance.

                              We will not allow people to tamper with task, list, and workspace activity feeds, but may play with different activity views on the Dashboard, including searching and filtering.

                            • Offset Projects under Groups

                              Is it possible to offset the projects underneath the groups? It would make it easier to look at. At the moment, when groups are expanded, the projects within it are aligned with the group itself, making it hard to differentiate all the items on the projects sidebar (and only being able to use the expanded icon to be able to tell). Attached a file with what I’m talking about. Thanks!

                              • Vocal memo

                                It would be super to add the possibility of attaching vocal memo in a note or even as a comment... When you work a lot on a mobile sometimes few seconds of audio save many minutes of typing on a cellphone... as well as on a computer if you have to describe something more technical it saves a lot of time...

                                Thank you for considering this idea :)

                                  • Dashboard should only summarise activity

                                    Dashboard seems to be a total waste. It displays absolutely everything, regardless of whether it’s useful or not, which is not practical.

                                    Dashboard should provide a general overview of ONLY RECENTY ACTIVITY, not EVERYTHING, including fully formatted long notes in comments (because there’s no way to create/edit text files in Flow).

                                    Show ONLY what actually happened recently, i.e.:

                                    “James commented on INSERT TASK NAME HERE.”

                                    instead of

                                    “James commented…”

                                      Dashboard improvements are actively in progress. We’ll let you know when we have something to show. Thanks for the suggestion!

                                      As a company we should have the ability to create our own custom mapping for flow.

                                        Thanks for the suggestion. Beyond the team URL we provide you, there aren’t plans to allow for custom domains quite yet.

                                      • Evernote Integration

                                        Integration with Evernote
                                        We use Evernote a lot, but the reason we use Flow for tasks rather than Evernote is the delegation and task notification system.
                                        Often, there will be a project that we will be working on that has extensive or related notes. At the moment we can copy the URL from Evernote to paste into the task - but it's a bit kludgy.
                                        What I would love to see would be something along these lines:
                                        * ability in Flow to create or link to an Evernote note (they both have permalink URI's I think)
                                        * Ability to create…

                                        • Office 365 Group and Microsoft Teams integration

                                          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 useful
