A Slight Adjustment to Flow That Doesn’t Really Change How You’ll Use It
By Mark on January 16, 2015
We’re making a nice little change to Flow that we think is going to make it better for everyone: we’re changing ‘lists’ to ‘projects’.
Here’s why: first of all, we realized that lists is a confusing term for what is much more commonly known as a project — especially to people who are brand new to Flow. The name ‘list’ came about since what it represented was a group of tasks (i.e. a list of tasks), but at the end of the day, our definition of a list was always a project to anyone else in the...
We’re taking a full week off this December to celebrate the holidays. It’s a little more than what most teams take. Having this extra time made me wonder how I can make the most of it. I’m only half joking when I say I want to optimize my bliss.
Last year, some Flow users demonstrated some very interesting (and anti-holiday) tendencies: between December 27th and Sunday January 5th there was an unusual spike in completed tasks per person in Flow. This means a small group of people were sneaking...
As I’m sure many of you do, we use Google Drive here at Flow to manage and share documents and spreadsheets that we work on together. Google’s collaborative editing is best in class, and we often use Docs and Spreadsheets for “living” documents that expand and change over time, as well as in situations where inline commenting comes in handy, like in drafting our blog posts.
Before today, the only way to share something from Google Drive in Flow was to paste the link into a comment—that worked...
A couple of months back, everyone on the Flow team got together in the same room for the first time in our history. While we’re normally happy to distribute our team, we wanted everyone to get together and talk about the future of Flow. Needless to say, it was a big discussion that resulted in plenty of big ideas.
The most glaring challenge was carrying that momentum forward. We were quick to get the ideas on paper - ahem, in Flow - and spent the next couple months up ‘til now shipping features...
Flow got a new look today: a bright blue header across the top of the app, which is now home to Notifications, Search, the New Task button, and the Help menu.
The new placement of these actions better reflects their rank above the context of a single workspace—Search, Notifications, and the New Task Form help you to work across all the workspaces you’re a part of.
This new header also lays the foundation of some changes to come. We’re not ready to talk too many details yet, but we’re very...
Lately, lots of you have been asking whether or not we plan to add time tracking to Flow. It’s an excellent idea, since many people already use Flow to manage client work.
Here’s the thing: someone else is already doing time tracking unbelievably well, and their service is tailor-made to integrate beautifully into other apps (not to mention that they also offer invoicing, advanced reporting, and plenty more).
That’s why we’re proud to announce that Flow now integrates with Harvest, the best...
Leaving a quick comment helps you communicate with your team. Getting specific by mentioning someone or attaching an image helps you get your point across. We’re pleased to announce that you can now do both while on the go with Flow™ in the Flow Android app.
We’ve built a new comment form! It’s cleaner, easier to use, and more functional than before. When you open it, the blue Action Bar disappears and the form controls expand so that you can focus on your writing, with less...
You asked, and we delivered: this episode is packed to the gills with super boring video games and inside stories of life at Microsoft.
But seriously: Sean joins us today to talk about his past life at Microsoft, and his transformation into a Mac-using, project-managing Head of Ops at MetaLab. Also, Jeremy reveals how he and his friends have raised almost two million dollars for sick kids by driving a virtual bus.
