      Excellent! Good to hear Jesse.

      Aaargh... and now have been emailing tasks to my Flow - but of course they're now in the wrong team so have to do the weird move from one clunky temp project to another so I can then get them to the right spot.
      I'm better off just not using team workspaces (which, weirdly, is what I told myself to do back in 2015 before I went away from Flow... and I'm back and it's the same problem...)

      Still not planned... :(
      I've come back to Flow after cancelling for a year or so (about 18 months) - mostly because the Offline access is now planned... can we get this looked at again? It is truly silly to have to put everything into a project - there really really REALLY ought to be a triage space for handling items that have not been assigned or worked on. You know, like a box that things go in. An "in" box. or similar. Maybe "inbox" is the wrong idea?

      At heart:

      As a user of Flow
      I want to capture the things I need to do quickly and easily without having to analyse them
      So that I can ensure that all my things to do are captured.

      And then work out which project they belong to. Or not. Not everything has a project (which is why I have a "---" project for dumping stuff in) :)

      - any idea can be captured
      - tasks need just barebones info
      - emails can go here
      - quick notes can go here
      - it's private to me only
      - tasks can be assigned to projects and teams that I belong to

      I've just hit this problem again in a big way - have gone ahead and set up more workspaces now that they're not so costly and then emailed a bunch of tasks through to myself thinking I can easily move them around but nooooooo..... I forgot... now I have to create a list, move the tasks in there and then move them to right workspace. Unless I'm missing something...?
      This is hitting me especially if I'm emailing personal tasks in - it means I have to create a project list "Move to Personal" then manually move the tasks into that list and then move the project. Even worse I then have to reset the sharing settings as well - or accidentally give Guest access to everyone.

      This is silly.

      Ben commented  · 

      The more I've been using the new flow the more I think that some function that allows stuff to go in and then be processed to workspaces is going to be very helpful. At the moment, I've restructured my lists so that I don't have to use workspaces - i.e. everything's in one workspace. which kind of misses the point of the workspaces :)

                      We don’t have plans to expand on the tagging functionality. That said, we won’t rule it out. Keep voting and commenting with how you work and what problem you’re aiming to solve with this. It all helps!

                      Ben commented  · 

                      Tags need some love Flow People...
                      They are a little too bolted on at the moment - I want to be able to use them to create my own workflows and processes - but they're hidden away. Some form of sorting, searching and LISTING the tags would be lovely. (also... sort of related... save favourite search and put it on the sidebar ).

                      I'm trying to solve the problem of horizontal information slicing.

                      Projects provide a vertical view (all tasks in a given subject), but I especially want to be able to view all tasks to be performed in a particular area/location/with a tool.

                      This then allows tasks to be looked at in the context of what I'm doing at that point in time. I've logged a request about this elsewhere, but including here as it's something that I really want :)

                      E.g. I run a business that has multiple locations:
                      1) Office
                      2) Shop
                      3) Warehouse
                      I may be running a project which is about developing, manufacturing, marketing and sending out a new product.
                      In order to complete that project, I have some tasks that can only be done at the warehouse, some that can only be done at the office, etc. - and perhaps throw in "Online" because I have a done that can only be done using a computer online. Depending on where I am I want to see the tasks that I can do right now. Without this, I have to conceptually move UP the project chain and across and then DOWN to the tasks- I just want a list of what I can do right now with what I have.

                      Ben commented  · 

                      Any update on this Flowpeople?

                      Being able to select from a list of existing tags would be great - at the moment there's a fair bit of guesswork.

                        Hey... I see it was started 9 months ago... is this still happening?

                        Ben commented  · 

                        I was about to post this when I found that it's already here...

                        My thoughts:

                        Have a way to easily and quickly mark a project as "complete"

                        As an obsessional user who loves to mark things as done...
                        I want to be able to show that a Project is "Complete"
                        So that it is available on a list of completed projects
                        and is archived away from my everyday tasks
                        and notes the day that the Project was completed.

                        And maybe other stuff.

                        Nothing major, just a little tick box perhaps.
                        For extra credit maybe a tick or milestone marker in the calendar as well.
                        Project should archive away.
                        Completed projects can be searched for.

                        Cheers

                                  We do plan to allow for mass editing of tasks. It may take some time to get there, but we want to do it.

                                            Defer to date
                                            Provide a function that (optionally) hides tasks until they are deferred.

                                            As a power user with many tasks
                                            I want to only see those tasks that I can work on at this point in time
                                            So that I can just work on the next task.

                                            - option for a task to be hidden until a particular date.
                                            - maybe use the due date? or could be a new date ("defer until" or "start date").
                                            - Could be greyed out until the date
                                            - Could be sorted to the bottom of a list.
                                            - Does not show in the "catch up" section (this is the main reason I want this - I have tasks that are waiting until a given date and they are showing in my "you could work on this next" and my immediate thought is "bugger off, no I can't").

                                            Hi @Marc - you can do this for DUE dates - if you go to Calendar then filter for only your tasks you get that list (can be viewed as calendar or list).
                                            What you can't get is stuff that's due to START in the future.

                                            Cheers,
                                            B.

                                            @David I'm thinking more of things that must happen before something else can be done. For example, if you building a house you want to lay the foundations and the studs before putting on the cladding and roof. Or before cooking your pasta you want to have the water boiling. Or before starting work on a new contract you want to have the contract signed; that sort of thing. It'd have to be an optional thing.
                                            Cheers
                                            Ben

                                            Yes that would be good. Would be nice to be able to have a set of tasks that only appear once another tasks is completed too (linear task flow rather than all parallel).
                                            Cheers
                                            Ben
