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. Show timestamp option

    Currently you have to hover over a message to see what time it was sent. I would like the option to always show that timestamp.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Add multi-factor authentication support for Flowdock accounts

          Flowdock should support 2-factor authentication for its own accounts just like Google, GitHub and many other business critical services already do.

              • 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.

                  planned  ·  Ville Saarinen responded

                  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

                • 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.

                  • Rally integration - Allow users to cross-comment on Flowdock & Rally items with tags/callouts

                    Moving from JIRA, we have a problem in that Discussion is hidden away in Rally. This means *everything* is happening in Flowdock. Which is great (its recorded somewhere right!) but we also need to ensure that we add the pertinent discussion back into the Rally item once we've got an agreed approach for instance.

                    I'd like a way to cross post. e.g. do the following:

                    "@US1234 - this user story needs more information which I'm working on now."

                    Calling out the Rally item means the comment ends up in the Discussion area of the Rally item.

                      • Add anonymous chat rooms that work exactly like current chat rooms

                        Basically everything would be the same as right now, but the name and avatar of the people involved would be hidden.

                        For clarity, it might be a good idea to use some kind of generated name so that you still know which messages are posted by the same person and can point your question to some specific person. If a generated name is used, it would should be user regenerate-able (without broadcasting the change to the chat) to make sure people can still stay anonymous even though they reveal something about themselves.

                        This kind of chat would be great in…

                                1. The status update would be posted to all flows, prefixed with "Away:" (or an icon indicating away status).

                                  • 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.

                                      We’re working on better notifications configurability and this is something we could incorporate into those efforts.

                                    • 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.

                                        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.

                                        • Add user profile fields for introduction and location (Or possibility for admins to create additional custom fields)

                                          When working on a very large project with hundreds of other developers, designers and other roles, organized into several teams working on different features, in several different locations internationally, it would be very helpful to be able to know who and where your teammates are and what they are working on. It would also help to find the right person to talk to about a specific issue when needed.

                                          Specifically, user introduction and location, but role and team name would also be useful information.

                                          I am sure this would be a helpful feature even for smaller organizations, as well.
