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. Re-thread should cycle through more threads (and no thread)

    The re-thread feature is a big help, but a couple tweaks would take this from solving maybe 33% of my threading problems to more like 99%.

    Currently the re-thread feature takes a message from any thread (or no thread), and moves it to either of the last 2 threads, cycling between them on subsequent clicks of re-thread.

    However, frequently I want to unthread a message. And also, frequently I want to move a message to like the 3rd-most recent thread.

    Re-threading would be much more useful if it would cycle the destination between more recent threads (I suggest 5, but…

    • make the status appear beside the name, be global and not create a message

      Currently, the status is very hard to find (try it yourself). SPOILER: click a name and hover mouse on the popup. Solution: Make it visible beside the name inside parentheses like this: Nickname (Status)

      Furthermore, the status is only active in one particular flow where you enter the status. Don't know about you but I consider status to reflect on my overall status related to flowdock i.e. "Away", "Do not disturb" or "On vacation", not some specific flow.

      Lastly, the status command creates an information/notification message which tells what I changed my status to. This might be beneficial sometimes (I…

      • Fix the giphy integration relevancy

        The giphy integration returns very odd results. Slack's giphy integration and giphy's internal search both are much more relevant.

        • Remove read receipts from mentions and 1:1s

          If read receipts are bad in email, they are even worse in chat. Do a quick Internet search if you really need reasons why.

          • Open the app when clicking the notification

            On a mac: when a notification appears that someone has sent me a message/posted a message and I click on the notification, the app needs to open even if it has been minimized or is on another desktop screen.

            • Support split view on iPad

              In today’s iPad app, you can put Flowdock in split view, but Flowdock does not respond and use the compact/iPhone class app size. In stead, it just shrinks the iPad app with desktop view - specifically, it keeps the sidebar with list of flows open and it’s not possible to see the actual flow content.

              You can see an example of this issue in this Twitter thread:

              • Disable name change posts for flows

                If you're in X amount of flows, you'll send X amount of posts about your name change. This is really unnecessary for most flows, at least in my company.

                • Make offline/online status more apparent in profile pictures

                  In my organisation lots of people have a monochrome photo as their profile picture. This makes it difficult to see if they are online or offline, because the offline status in Flowdock is made by making the profile picture monochrome (and darkened).

                  I suggest you add some kind of additional highlight that indicates if a person is online or offline (maybe add a green border for profile pictures for people that are online)

                    • Allow users to disable emoji display

                      With the ability to upload custom emoji, some users like to use this to upload animated images and use them frequently. Other users may find this distracting. An option to prevent emjoi from being displayed would benefit such users.

                      This option would be similar to the existing option to prevent linked and attached images from being displayed automatically, instead displaying a link to each image that can be clicked on if the user chooses to view them. This option is very helpful in removing distracting animated images, but does not prevent emoji from being displayed.

                      • Don't scroll to the bottom of the flow if new messages are posted when reading history (iOS)

                        It's difficult to focus on reading history when you get scrolled down because of new messages. Then you need to scroll back again to continue reading history.

                        On the web app this is implemented well with a "1 new message below" indicator and no automatic scrolling but this is missing from iOS.

                        You could of course just tell everyone to not post anything new while you take your time reading history... :)

                        • Add a settings option to enable users to use older / classic palettes and icons.

                          New icons and palettes can be distracting and hard to follow for some users. I suggest adding an option to flowdock that players can opt into that use the original palettes and icons used by Flowdock.

                          • Allow customizing thread reply icon

                            Often enough, color is not enough to differentiate threads. Sometimes two threads that start at different times have very similar colors, and may end up receiving replies around the same time.

                            Perhaps the reply icon that sits to the left of messages could be customized on a per-thread basis? Maybe just manually at first, so that initiators of long-running threads could change it.

                              • Let DND hide all possible triggers, not just notifications

                                Some of us are fighting with addiction to Flowdock (among others). When we need some time to focus on a work task, it's not just the notifications that will trigger us back in, it's everything. All the little green and orange circles. Of course turning off the internet connection is an option, but would still be useful to be able to search flows for information that is needed for the task at hand. So please, be the ones to lead the pack and start considering mental wellbeing at work with the features you introduce.

                                      • Change "Link to thread" from the full length link to the ability to grab a shortened URL.

                                        We grab a lot of our thread links and copy them into docs, jira tickets and even post it notes. It would be nice not to have to manage a long unwieldy link every time. Currently, we have to use bit.ly or tinyurl.

                                        • subscribe to thread

                                          Often when we move out of thread in flow it becomes difficult to track if there are any posts on the flow that need our attention if not explicitly tagged. It would be nice to have a notify me option whenever there is any message on this thread and unsubscribe if not listening to the thread
