Differences between Do.com and Flow
While Do and Flow support fairly similar workflows, there are some notable changes that are worth reviewing before you jump in.
Groups will become Workspaces. Groups in Do act almost exactly as Workspaces in Flow. You can use workspaces to organize your work by company, department, team, product, or even projects.
Projects and Deals will become Lists. Lists in Flow are very similar, letting you group, sort, and filter your tasks. The only notable difference is the current lack of support for Project and Deal details like descriptions, due dates, etc. After importing your data, these will be added to an “About” task in each of your lists.
Sections will become tags. There’s nothing comparable to sections in Flow, so your Do sections will be converted into tags and added to the tasks within the section.
Notes will be turned into text files. They will remain attached to your tasks, but any notes attached to projects or deals will now be attached to their respective list’s “About” task, as mentioned above. Unattached notes will also be available for download in your Inbox.
Contacts don’t have a comparable replacement in Flow so, like unattached notes, they will be made available to download from a task in your Inbox.
You may notice a handful of minor differences between Do and Flow, many of which will be new features, which we’re sure you’ll find improve your team’s workflow.
Tasks don’t have descriptions in Flow. We have plans to introduce a powerful note-taking and sharing feature in the near future that will help people attach more details to their tasks.
Tasks are automatically delegated in Flow instead of requiring approval as they do in Do. Every task belongs to someone—if you don’t assign a task to anyone, it is assigned to you by default.
There are no project templates in Flow, though you can duplicate any list if you want to save it as a template.
Teammates are now managed in Workspace Preferences rather than settings. Here you can add/remove people and assign them different permissions in the workspace.
