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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Mute channel notifications

    Allow muting of a channel so that any chatter (unless directly @name mentioned) within the channel does not trigger notifications (red indicator dot, desktop, etc..)

    • Add a "flow aggregator" flow

      I'm subscribed to several flows, and while I can open them in different tabs, it's still a PITA switching between them.

      Why not have a special "aggregator" flow, which would look similar to a normal flow but with a few distinct changes...

      First, an option to select which of my subscribed flows should be aggregated in the "aggregator" flow. And maybe even choose what I want to see from each flow - eg. I might not be interested in influx, or I might only want to see messages directed at me in chat.

      Whenever anything is posted in any of…

      • Enable a layout that includes a list of threads and the ability to pin threads.

        Threads are easy to miss in the middle of chatter noise and finding a thread is often hard unless through the search interface.

        It would be very convenient to have a list of threads in a panel with the threads that have been most recently replied to at the top. Furthermore, we should be allowed to pin threads to the top if they are special/important with the ability to unpin them after losing relevance.

        These are features that are typical of topic-based forums such as phpBB.

        • Voting Widget

          When I had teams that used to use Wave, we would often times use the little voting widget that they offered. It was crazy quick to make small democratic decisions

          • enable support for Confluence OnDemand

            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!

            • userscript or plugin capability in desktop client

              It would be extremely helpful if we can provide urls to Javascript and CSS that will be loaded in the page.

              This is easy to do in Chrome, but not in the standalone application.

              I would be fine if the preferences panel had a text box for urls to add to the page.

              • Expand support for inline gifs, specifically new gifv format.

                Right now if you paste a .gif url into a flow it will embed the gif. But this does not support the new gifv format.

                Example:
                http://i.imgur.com/O6h0DPM.gif
                vs

                • Commenting on JIRA/Confluence from Flowdock Posts Back

                  To allow us to stay in Flowddock as much as possible, we would like the option to have comments posted to JIRA/Confluence entries, to post back to the comment thread on the issue or page in the respective tool. This would make the process seamless.

                    Github sends a new event type "status" that they use for Travis CI builds passing, etc. It would be great if flowdock could support these!

                    • Support custom commands

                      Would be interesting if you could support custom commands. I see this as a great way to further integration with other services. As a specific example, there are lots of video chat apps that people could integrate with using their own commands rather than having to wait for support from flowdock or being forced to use /hangouts.

                      Could be as simple as registering commands in the admin section with a URL to post data to (such as who is in the flow, and arguments passed to the command etc).

                      • Notification option for threads you have contributed to

                        I would like to see one more option for which notifications you receive:

                        "1-to-1 messages, mentions, and thread replies"

                        If I have asked a particular question and someone replies to it without using a mention, I would like a notification. However, I don't want a notification on ever chat message as it's too much noise.

                          A brilliant idea! We have a big initiative related to notifications coming up and this could very well be a part of it. Can’t promise any dates at this point, though.

                        • Search for all messages from a particular user

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

                          • Add option for "Lay out content on page" - Make the flow layout look like the threaded view

                            I would like an option to make the main flow view look like the threaded view. The biggest things I like about the threaded view are the inline avatars. I also like the name and timestamps above the conversation.

                            For me, it makes the flow read much nicer than any of the other layout options, which keeping whitespace to a minimum. This could also be improved by bringing over the "monologue" concept that already exists in the main flow.

                            • Big text field at the bottom should reply, not create a new thread

                              The field at the bottom of the chat window should reply to the most recent / lowest thread bubble. Submitting the reply could then pop open the thread.

                              Move the "Type to start a new thread" field to the top. Or use the same field for both using two buttons, but the default button (and hitting the "enter" key) should reply, NOT start a new thread.

                              People seem to like the thread bubbles, but the way it's currently done is a usability anti-pattern. Every single new user at my company accidentally starts a new thread when they intend to reply.…

                              • Allow the creation of issue patterns for JIRA

                                Allow the creation of many REGEX issue patterns that will hyperlink back to JIRA. For example when a user in chat types AB-12 it will be hyperlinked automatically to https://myjira.atlassian.net/browse/AB-12. This can be accomplished by allowing an issue pattern via regex and a corresponding link. The link format could be something like 'https://myjira.atlassian.net/browse/{0}'; . This could be generalized for any site technically.

                                • Add mobile presence indicator

                                  It would be great if the avatar of a user could be augmented with a mobile icon or some other visual cue so people know if a user is on desktop or mobile.

                                  The motivation for doing this is often I end up sending someone an in-depth message, only to find out they aren't at their computer, it would be nice to differentiate presence in order to avoid these sorts of situations.

                                  • 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.

                                        • More persistent connection retrying

                                          When using the native OSX app, network hiccups, such as when switching from wireless to ethernet for the internet connection, causes the app to become disconnected from the server and never reconnect. It would be nice if the app were more persistent in reconnecting instead of requiring manual interaction to fix it.
