I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Retroactively change a post in the flow to a reply.

    If you forget to make your comment a reply then you can change it after you have sent it.

      The Flowdock team has been working hard on infrastructure changes to make this possible. Once we finish that work, we’ll be able to start work on this feature.

    • add support for custom group @mentions in chat

      Much like @everyone, there should be a way to define custom groups of users who can be mentioned at once by evoking e.g. @devteam, @admins etc. Groups may overlap (that is, a given user may be member in 0..* groups).

      • Enable search in private one-on-one chats

        We use both the group chat and private one-on-one chats a lot. Sometimes it's difficult to remember when and where some issues was discussed. Full text search works great in the group chat, it should work in private chat too. Now we're considering moving our private chats back to skype to get the search working.

            • Avatar to the left of each message in Chat

              Similar to other chat message systems, include the user's avatar on the first line of each chat message. Obviously this should not be passed to anyone using an IRC client with flowdock. When in flows with several users talking rapidly, it's hard for the eye to keep track without the avatars.

              • Allow ad-hoc chats between multiple persons

                Creating a flow for an ad-hoc chat is too heavy. I'd like to be able to add people into a chat for 1 hour to discuss something, then delete / archive the chat when we are done.

                • Allow pasting images from the clipboard

                  Allow pasting an image directly from the clipboard. (On mac, ctrl+command+shift+4). Other chat systems do this by catching that the paste is an image and dropping it into a file upload dialog.

                    • Add voice Chat

                      Allow to make a group call with everyone on the Flow. Although we love the concept of having an instant view and search of the flow history we fell that having voice chat would be great for us as an Agile development team. We currently have skype and flowdock simultaneosly which is a mess. We also feel this would reduce the "noise" on the flow as only key parts should be written/summarized in the flow.

                        We don’t have any short-term plans to add support for voice chat. But in the meantime, you can start a Google Hangout with everyone in a flow with the /hangout command. Another cool voice & video call app is Room.co, accessible via /room — without any registration!

                      • Status Changes

                        Add chat alerts for users going Idle, returning, and going offline/online. I find myself talking to people for half an hour who have left without my noticing.

                            • Collapse/expand threads

                              Some threads in a flow get very lengthy and I might not be interested in them. There could be a way to collapse/expand a thread.

                              For example, set height of every message in the thread to ~3px, showing just the thread color, not any content. On click any message of that color, all messages of that thread expand.

                              Also notifications for a collapsed thread would be muted. This feature would be useful to help me focus on new threads or other concurrent threads.

                                I have multiple flows for different projects and I want to avoid accidentally posting to the wrong flow. I would like to personalize the flows somehow (e.g. change the icon or the background color of the flow) so that it is easier to see which flow I am in.

                                • Allow users to define lists of words they get notified for

                                  So my name is Michael Sullivan, and people address me as Michael, Mike, Sullivan, or Sully. And I'm on the server team, which sometimes people want to get the attention of someone -- anyone -- on the team. I should be able to define a list like so:

                                  Michael
                                  Mike
                                  Sullivan
                                  Sully
                                  #server
                                  #serverteam

                                  When any of those words are used in a flow, the behavior should be identical to when my username is used in the flow (so, the potentially higher-level notification plus the badge on the flow).

                                        Currently everything coming in via RSS has a large RSS icon, making it hard to discern what the source of the item is. Why not use the favicon on the source site, or provide a way to specify one (file or url) in the case one can't be found by Flowdock.

                                        • add YouTrack integration option

                                          YouTrack (http://www.jetbrains.com/youtrack/index.jsp) is a quite populat issue tracking and project management tool from JetBrains.

                                          Apart from our team, I think really many teams use it for their development needs alongside with Flowdock, so I suppose that being able to integrate these to wonderful services would be really nice.

                                          Currently we just plan to add comments and issues RSS-feeds to our flowdock flows, but it is a one-way integration. Would be cool to make it both-ways.
