  1. Flows listed alphabetically

    Flows listed in the primary list (for users to join) should be listed alphabetically or the user should have the option to sort them multiple ways

      • Mac OSX - Add separate separate badges in cmd+tab and dock UI for chat mentions vs inbox mentions

        In Mac OSX, users can see if they have been directly or indirectly mentioned by either looking at the badge on the OS dock icon, or when they press Cmd+Tab they can see the badge in the app icon dashboard when switching apps.

        Our inbox / feed shows a lot of different application RSS sources as well as Jira notifications, email group feeds, etc.

        Getting the same badge notification for when another user types "@YourName", as well as when an RSS feed entry posts an article written by an author with your same first name, can get very confusing.

        Just…

        • Expiring Posts

          First off... love Flowdock! One of the best tools I use. With that out of the way...

          I think it would be great to be able to set an expiration time/date on a post after which it is destroyed. This would allow posting of usernames and passwords (or other sensitive info) in the Flow without having to worry that they are forever available and searchable.

          • Support IE < 10 For JS API Access

            CORS isn’t supported in full until IE10, and therefore it is not possible to e.g. use the push API through JS in older versions. (I suppose there may be a question of whether this is desirable at all, but it IS possible in FF/Chrome/Safari…)

            * In IE9 and IE8 there is the XDomainRequest object, but it only supports sending text/plain content which isn’t supported by the API (also, only GET and POST). The solution would be to allow text/plain and interpret it as JSON anyway.

            * In IE7 and earlier (and probably versions of other browsers), there is no CORS…

            • Fix bug: Let users edit their /status messages

              If I enter a /status message into a chat, and then press the up key to edit it, Flowdock shows some (random? the first message I've sent today? I'm not sure) message I've sent previously in place of the status message. I can't actually edit the message at all.

              • Add the ability to link to CA porduct communities and exper forums

                I would love if we could get new posts from the CA Product client user communities and expert forums in a flow.
                Would be even better for support if we could do a quick reply from the app.

                • Best way to use Flowdock in a web design studio?

                  Wondering about "one flow per team" concept --- more how others are using flows. We are a web design studio, not a programming team per se; we have one team, and multiple clients/projects. I guess it makes sense to have a one flow per project?

                  • Make the "Show" link in email notifications pop the desktop app instead of web

                    Every time I get an email notification about a mention, I have to then go find it in the flow, because I use the desktop app and not the web version. It would be great to have the "Show" link pop the app (when available).

                      • Being able to put message into a thread retrospectively.

                        Its very easy to type away and not create a thread... but very hard to put these messages into a thread retrospectively (correct yourself).

                        Option to: Add to thread [color] on the message

                          • Let Admins directly add users or teams to a flow rather than just invite

                            When onboarding new users, it would be great if their flow list were already populated with the flows relevant to their team or role

                            • Back button in the UI to go back to the previouly viewed flows.

                              Have some kind of back button in the UI that would take you back to the previous viewed flows in order (like browser history).

                              Having 50+ flows it gets really hard to remember which flow was the one you just replied in 5 minutes ago. Being able to go back would help a lot.

                              • 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.

                                • Fix loading issues in Android app

                                  Now that you have a (much improved) Android app, can you work on fixing random load failures? When switching to a different flow, I often (approx 25% of the time) get a blank page (no content for the Chat and Inbox sections). If that happens, I need to show the list of flows again and select the same flow again.

                                    We're looking to add a live chat option to our site, and the best way we could see this working would be to have it create new threads in one of our flows for each customer that uses it. Chatlio.com provides this for Slack, and it looks very compelling.

                                    • Allow flows to directly show most interacted attendees as a sublevel, to facilitate easy lookup of people

                                      For a large organization spanning thousands of people the leftside flows vs. single 1-to-1 chats becomes unwieldy.

                                      Let the flow be expandable in the left list, showing the people you have 1-on-1 chats with and sorted by frequency or alphabetically.

                                        Some of our customers are deathly afraid of company secrets or information exiting their network. Would be very useful to allow admins to control this feature per flow or per account.
