Testing in Progress

I haven't met too many people who would say no to a personal assistant. Even if it's just to find the nearest hardware store or make a quick appointment, how great would it be to have someone take care of all the little distractions? How much could you actually get done if they all just kind of went away?

It's something that's been on our minds a fair bit around here lately. We usually have a lot on the go and are always looking for ways to streamline our workflow. That and we're a bit obsessive when it comes to productivity (you have to be to build a product like Flow).

Anyway, we figured personal assistants would be an easy fit with what Flow already does and decided to give it a shot. We got a team together, hired the new assistants, and within a few weeks we were delegating away all the tasks we were either too busy (mostly) or too lazy (sometimes) to do ourselves.

It's a luxury usually reserved for the guys at the top, the Presidents and CEOs—it felt like we were breaking the rules somehow and getting away with it. It was awesome.

We've been getting a lot of use out of it, so the logical next step is to open it up to other Flow users to see if they'll get the same. We've ironed out a few little bugs and are now moving into the first stage of the Flow Concierge Pilot Program.

We're keeping it pretty exclusive for now, but if the idea of an on-call personal assistant built right into Flow gives you goosebumps and you're interested in taking part, let us know. Just enter your email here (make sure it's the same one you use to sign into Flow) and someone from the Concierge team will be in touch shortly.
