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".

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.

  1. allow status changes to apply to all flows

    Currently, we rely heavily on status changes to indicate availability. While this is somewhat hit and miss in terms of people remembering to use it, it is particularly problematic for people who are regularly in multiple flows.
    If there was some easy way for status to be shared between flows, that would be very helpful.

    • enable searching all flows in an organisation

      my organisation has a lot of flows and it's difficult to find which flow a message was 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).

        • Implement mobile push notifications for @everyone mentions in a flow

          Push notifications for the native iOS app work great when someone is mentioned by name, but when @everyone is called out in a room, everyone in that flow should receive a push notification.

          We use @everyone often, and it is meant to get everyone's attention in the flow - whether they're logged in, or remote.

          • Browse specific users messages

            I didnt find out how to browse specific users messages so I wondered if there is even a feature for it. If not, please add :) We use flowdock as meeting room and it would be easier to read chairmans messages and specific participant messages this way.

              We are currently working on improving message filtering/searching and this is definitely a feature worth considering.

            • Chrome's Pinned Tab Should Display Unread Message Count ala Gmail

              In Gmail, they have a Lab Feature called "Unread message icon" that basically updates the favicon to include a number of unread messages in your box. That way, when you "Pin" the tab, it'll still show the unread messages.
              Pinning a tab is great because even when you close Chrome, it'll always re-open the Pinned tab.

              However, when I 'Pin' the Flowdock tab, I don't know if I have unread messages. I have a million tabs opened (Software Engineer) and sometimes I'm not at my desk when the messages come my way. Because of this, our team is forgetting to…

              • don't flood the flow with irrelevant notifications like joining/leaving the flow, changing name, etc

                please stop notifying me when people join the flow, leave the flow, decline the flow, change their name - all these useless notifications that add no value and detract from flowdocks usefulness.
                the flow is always flooded with completely irrelevant messages that are super annoying.

                or give me the option to disable these notifications... please.

                  When I'm editing what I have said, I would like to be able to strikethrough some text instead of just deleting it. That way, I don't disrupt the flow of the conversation for people who come back to it later.

                    Allow us to reference one flow from within another. Example - in our All Team flow (which everyone has open all the time), allow us to say something like "Check out the ridiculous conversation happening right now in the ^Tomfoolery flow" or "OK, this is getting off-topic, let's jump over to the ^Project Name flow"

                      Good idea, we’ll consider it. For now, the way to do this is to select the topic of interest in the flow, hover over it with the mouse cursor, copy the link that’s in the timestamp and paste the link to the other flow. Not very pretty but works.

                    • Use a site's favicon for influx item icon

                      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.

                        I want to see the statuses of all members in a flow so that I can quickly get an overview of what everyone is working on.

                        The "/status" feature is handy within a flow, but I wish when I looked at the members of the flow I saw their status.

                        I know you can hover over their picture in this list to get status, but I'd love to be able to just glance at this page and see everyone's status.

                            Looks like you can install the Flowdock plugin for JIRA in Atlassian's hosted OnDemand instances, but not their hosted Confluence instances. Would be great to be able to use the plugin with both!

                            • Use different colour schemes (dark vs light?) to differentiate between flow chat and private conversation

                              There have been several occasions where I've accidentally been typing in a team flow window when I meant to be typing in a private window. Having a different colour scheme or dark vs light shading could make it much easier to know if you're in a private conversation window or a flow windows. Open to other ideas for differentiating between the two to avoid embarrassing mistakes.

                                    We’re working on a big notifications redesign.

                                    @everybody, @everyone, @anyone and @all do the same thing – hilight all users in the flow. It depends on users’ personal settings whether or not they are notified on the desktop. These tags don’t send push notifications to mobile apps.

                                    A simple extension that keeps track of new message count (and possible new influx items) and allows me to quickly launch my flow in a new tab.

                                      • I'd like to be able to ignore specific tags

                                        Perhaps this is not the way Flowdock is intended to be used, but I'd like to keep our whole 15-person team in the same Flow. This means a lot of noise, however, especially with various Influx sources -- it'd be great if I could ignore the incoming Bitbucket commit items for a specific project I don't work on, for example.
