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".

  1. Full Ubuntu WebApp integration

    Right now I am using Flowdock as a webapp in Ubuntu. That works quite good.
    Also desktop notifications work fine.

    But other than e.g. for Skype the flowdock app icon gets no highlighting on new messages. So highlighting would be really nice.

    My scenario: when I am at my desk it's fine, I will see desktop notification. But if I'm not at my desk for a while and comming back I don't see immediately if I have new messages.

    Event more advanced would be to integrate the notifications into the message notification bar on the top as well as a…

    • 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…

      • 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 side chat (a non-private private chat)

          In IRC private chat enables people to hold a conversation in a way that does not polute the main chat. While I agree that flowdock does not need chats that are hidden, I think a way to signal that a chat is on the side and not necessarily relevant to the entire group, would be helpful.

          This could represented as a chat in an alternate color that perhaps can be collapsed.

          It would also be great if the side chat could be viewed without interleaving messages. This view would basically be a search for the messages with the side chat.

          • create Atlassian Stash-plugin for Flowdock.

            Maybe with Repository Hooks: https://developer.atlassian.com/stash/docs/latest/how-tos/repository-hooks.html

            And please add this plugin to Atlassian Marketplace.

            • 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.

                We have plans to improve our access control, especially for external users.

              • 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.

                    • Add Skype call buttons

                      it's important to trigger voice communication when needed. So how about showing up a little call icon that would trigger Skype calls.

                      Obviously this requires some settings etc. but this would complete the "flow"

                      • 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).

                            • Add support to "Stop Animating" gifs in the chat room

                              Flint, the Mac app for the Campfire chat client, allows you to stop animation for gifs. It would be nice if Flowdock also has this option on their app.

                              Flowdock currently has the ability to hide images (including gifs). For most gifs, I'd like to simply pause it without losing context that the gif/image provides for the conversation.

                                    You can upload a gif as avatar, but it is not animated.

                                    Adding support for animated gifs in avatar would enlighten our boring and sad lives and bring a bit of joy in our jobs.

                                    • Support OpenGraph and Twitter Cards when pasting links in so that you could see rich preview for way more link types.

                                      OpenGraph and Twitter Cards are, well, more and more used ways for presenting the page content visually. For example, compare pasting this link to twitter, facebook and flowdock - http://www.thinglink.com/scene/419987613730996224

                                      And the simplest possible OpenGraph support is as simple as parsing one meta tag for the image URL. Simplest Twitter Cards are almost as simple too.

                                        • Add notification filtering to influx

                                          Our problem is that we get tons of notifications from monitoring services to the influx. A constant flow of important stuff does not matter if it doesn't blink and distract from other work. You want only to be desktop-notified about stuff that really matters to you.

                                          Therefore, we would tremendously benefit a desktop-notification filtering scheme, which allows persons to:
                                          1. Add/remove a tag when influx perfoms a desktop notification - only when any of these tags is present.
                                          2. Add/remove a tag when influx should specifically not perform a desktop notification when this tag is present.

                                          To put these in…
