Working together, whether it’s online or in person, takes good communication and all sorts of etiquette. When you’re in the same room, body language can soften words that would otherwise seem harsh. When collaborating online, that luxury doesn’t exist. It takes a separate set of manners to keep things respectful and running smoothly. Here are some of the things we do:
It’s only February, but it’s already been a busy year for us. Not only are we continuing to roll out incredible new features, we’re about to announce some design improvements to Flow as well.
This means that a few small things will change, so we wanted to keep you in the loop and give you a better idea of what to look forward to before the update. No features have been removed, we’ve simply stripped away some of the more distracting elements. What you’re left with are the same features and...
It’s well established that email is an inefficient way to manage your work, have meaningful discussions, and keep track of files. In fact, you’ve probably already found an app like Flow to do those things for you. But what do you do when your colleagues still use email for the work you share?
Regardless of your own workflow, you’ll always have to accommodate the way your peers work–and often that means dealing with email. Here are some tips to help you maintain order in a sea of emails.
As we ring in the new year, we’re excited to announce three big improvements that make Flow an even better tool for helping your team communicate.
Comments have always been one of Flow’s most important features. They’re an invaluable way to focus your team’s communication around action-based tasks, and we love how discussions in Flow help to foster a sense of inclusivity and encourage everyone to contribute.
After we launched the new Flow, we started thinking about how we could improve comments...
When we rebuilt Flow from the ground up (starting over 12 months ago), we made a lot of changes to help teams work more effectively. We’ve announced some of the big ones here already, like shared workspaces and team management. But today, we mention some of the features that are not obvious at first glance.
Smart Quick Task Form
When creating an inline task from the list view, you can edit its details easily with your keyboard by just tabbing through your options and hitting enter. No need...
Calling a meeting to discuss something at work used to be the best way to get in front of the people you need to talk to. You’d send a few emails to ask them to meet, and arrange a time; or you’d go over to their desks in person. Then, you’d block off an hour to talk about the things on your list. The conversation would often get derailed onto a semi-related issue, and you’d all come out with a little less energy to face the rest of the day–and an hour behind.
Flow has been redesigned from the ground up to make it easier for teams to get things done. We’d like to take the time to highlight some of the biggest changes to Flow, so that you can see how we’ve made it easier than ever to work effectively together.
Team Management Improvements
Organizations have become more fluid and dynamic than ever before. People come and go from your company, and ever-shifting teams are involved with multitudes of projects. We’ve improved Flow to address this.
Flow is made for all sorts of teams. From agencies to enterprises, Flow adapts to the nature of your work. Teams of all sizes use Flow to manage projects, tasks, ideas, and discussions–so they can be more effective in their collective efforts. In this series, we profile teams who have found Flow to be particularly helpful.
