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.

    • 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.

      • 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).

        • Clear iOS notifications when messages are viewed

          The same way that Facebook Messenger will remotely clear notifications when you've viewed a message on another device, it'd be great if Flowdock automatically cleared notifications when they were read upon another device.

          How to do it? Per StackOverflow [ http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21986886/how-does-facebook-messenger-clear-push-notifications-from-the-lock-screen-if-you ], iOS7 supports "silent push notifications—that is, notifications that do not display alerts or otherwise disturb the user."

          So the iPhone and iPad app would be updated to receive these silent push notifications (see http://www.objc.io/issue-5/multitasking.html for examples) and would then clear the notifications that have already been sent.

          • Search flow for particular date range

            I think this is useful feature for user who want to search flow for particular data range. e.g I want to see discussion from 1 dec 2011 to 25 dec 2011 in my flow.

            • Rally Integration - Specific Iterations/Release

              It would be great if we could further refine the Rally updates that display in a flow. For example, I'd like for our flow to only display the creation of or updates to user stories/defects in the current iteration.

              Right now we're getting a lot of "noise" in the flow because every defect that is added is being displayed in the flow .

                We have plans to help reduce noise with the Rally integration. All feedback with regards to how the activity messages should be filtered is extremely valuable.

              • integrate Asana into Team Inbox.

                Now that Asana has an API, it'd be great to get integration similar to what exists for Pivotal Tracker.

                  Asana integration can be added as soon as Asana adds support for webhooks. We recommend contacting Asana directly and requesting webhook support.

                  Until then, you can use the asana2flowdock script to get Asana activity into your team inbox: https://github.com/dojo4/asana2flowdock

                • provide separate controls for per-flow / private-chat notifications and Dock icon badge

                  I'd like to be able to set the control for badging the icon with the new notifications count to register a subset of notifications, e.g. my inbox messages, notifications from a particular flow, or one-to-one chat notifications only.

                    How about searching for all messages from a particular user? Currently, full text search of a user is polluted by @mentions and #tags.

                      Push notifications are great, but they should disappear when I saw them on another client.

                      GMail does the same: The mail icon disappears when I read the mail on the web.

                      • mentions should only trigger notifications if they include an @

                        My name is Max. Max also happens to be a word that gets used a lot, especially by programmers. Hence, I get lots of unnecessary notifications.

                        It would be awesome if the only way I got a notification is if someone typed @max, not max.

                        • Search chat conversation (only)

                          Sometimes it's difficult to find something said in a conversation with the results containing all the noise from other flows.

                          Thus, it would be great to have a filter to search only the chat conversation.

                          • Add (email address) restrictions to organisations

                            To increase security within organisations, I would like to have restrictions to be able to allow only specific persons to join an organisation (and its flows).

                            Example:

                            I create an organisation for my company.

                            All my employees use email addresses that follow the pattern "somename@mycompany.com".

                            I'd like to be able to restrict an organisation so that only those who have an email address ending in "mycompany.com" are able to join the organisation and its flows.

                            • More tightly integrate email correspondence

                              Email will inevitably be used to communicate between team members. If one team member sends an email to the Flow email address, then Flowdock should forward that email to all team members. Then, when another team member replies to that email from his/her own email client, it is added to the flow as a threaded reply to the original message (and the reply is again forwarded to all team members' email addresses)

                              This way, correspondence that takes place over email between team members is always integrated in Flowdock. People can choose to engage in a conversation using their email client,…

                                  Tracker is slow to open, so would be great to see the name of the story in question

                                  • Allow disabling @all/@everyone notifications per flow

                                    In couple of my flows I get messages that include @all more often than I'd care and my notification inbox gets flooded. I would like to be able to manage this somehow.

                                    • Visually distinguish thread-starting replies to a flow inbox item from other replies

                                      It is too easy to miss the fact that a thread was started based on an inbox item vs. replying to an old thread that has the same icon (two speech bubbles). It's sometimes even hard to notice the difference with a normal start-of-thread one speech bubble icon. Could we have a visually different way of displaying replies to an inbox item? One possible, but not necessarily the best, solution could be to have an icon that does not resemble a speech bubble at all.

                                        • Add the concept of groups - both for users and for flow access.

                                          We use flowdock internally, with partners and with clients. It would be fantastic if we could tag users as being a member of a group, and as a consequence allow them access to only some or all flows based on that tag.
