New to Flow: Add Details with Quick Task

By Jake on August 27, 2012

Creating tasks with the Quick Task Bar has always been a breeze. It's great for instantly capturing ideas and to-do lists, and it even takes cues from its context, like delegating to the selected collaborator, or adding a due date in the Today view.

But sometimes you want to add just a few more details: to invite a follower, say, or to add a couple tags. That's always been possible in the full task form, but if you're in the middle of adding tasks with the Quick Task Bar, switching could be a...

New to Flow: Sort Today's Tasks

By Jake on July 17, 2012

Our team creates tasks to keep track of everything we're doing, so it's not uncommon for some of us to end up with around 10+ tasks due on any given day. We love seeing everything we have to do and quickly jumping between discussions on each task. But we know firsthand that it's sometimes not enough to see our Upcoming tasks sorted by day since some of today's tasks are naturally more important or urgent than others.

That's why, today, we're pleased to announce that you can now reorder tasks in your Upcoming view:

New to Flow: Quick, Quick, Live

By Luke on June 20, 2012

We knew we were onto something when we introduced the Quick Task Bar last year. Since then, we've added another "quick bar" that makes inviting people to your lists simple and easy, right from the list sidebar.

Today we're adding two new quick bars: the Today and task followers bars. The Today view of your Upcoming tasks now features the Quick Task Bar, so you can line up your day's tasks as fast as you can type:

And task pages now have the same quick-invite bar we added to task lists, for...

New to Flow: Inline Editing & Task Form Tweaks

By Luke on June 12, 2012

Task apps live and die by their task forms. We're very proud of ours, but we're constantly looking for ways to make it even better. It has always made adding lots of detail easy, but it can feel cumbersome when you needed to edit a long task description. So we came up with a better way: you can now edit task descriptions (and titles!) right on task pages!

We've also updated the task form with two small improvements. First, we've put due dates inside the same blue tokens you're used to seeing...

Introducing: Flow Concierge

By Luke on May 30, 2012

Update: Flow Concierge was discontinued on November 1, 2012.

What if there were someone on your team who never called in sick and never complained when you gave them small, annoying jobs to do? What if the next time you needed to book an appointment, find the best sushi restaurant in town, or compare hotel rates for an upcoming trip, all you had to do was create a task for it? Sounds pretty good, right? We think so, which is why we're pleased to announce Flow Concierge, a new personal assistant...

The New Flow Status Page

By Luke on May 11, 2012

When you keep something running 24/7, dealing with the occasional bug is just part of the process. They're pretty rare in Flow, but when they do pop up, we know how important it is to respond quickly and communicate with our users about what's happening.

With that in mind, we've decided to setup a new status page for Flow. So from now on, any time you encounter an issue with Flow's web, iPhone, or Mac apps, all you have to do is check status.getflow.com to find the latest status updates while...

New to Flow: List Duplication

By Luke on May 2, 2012

We're happy to introduce a great little feature to Flow today: list duplication.

From now on, you can re-create any list and all its tasks simply by selecting "duplicate" from the list-options menu.

This should be especially handy if you find yourself regularly adding the same tasks to new lists. Now you can just create a template with those common tasks and the next time you start a new list, just hit "duplicate" and you're ready to roll.

As an added bonus, we've made it so a list with...

New to Flow: Email Attachments

By Luke on April 26, 2012

It's always been easy to create and delegate tasks, leave comments, and receive notifications via email, but until now attachments had to be added in-app.

Not anymore. From now on, any time you email a task to tasks@getflow.com or reply to a notification to comment, any files you attach will automatically be uploaded to the task.

Enjoy!

You'll find it below your collaborators in any list view. To invite someone new to collaborate on that list, just type in their name or email address and hit enter. Simple.

Enjoy!

Automatic Task Clearing is Now Optional

By Luke on April 19, 2012

Last week, we introduced automatic task clearing to Flow, eliminating the extra step of having to "sweep" away completed tasks.

Following the change, we received a surprising amount of feedback from users who preferred the old way of manually clearing tasks, some because they liked having that visual record up front, others because they liked the feeling of accomplishment that came with clearing completed tasks.

Whatever the reason, we heard you loud and clear: the automatic clearing of completed...
