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. 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.

        • 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.…

          • 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…

              • 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.

                    • 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"

                      • 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.

                          • 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.

                              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.

                              • Crashlytics as an Inbox Source

                                I'd dig getting Crashlytics crashes on our app to pop up in the inbox flow.

                                • Create New Thread On Purpose

                                  Somehow complementary to the more involved and to be developed https://flowdock.uservoice.com/forums/36827-general/suggestions/3472166-retroactively-change-a-post-in-the-flow-to-a-reply I think that would be great if users would get a warning when creating a new thread.

                                  The rationale is the following: most of the time, you're likely to answer an existing thread instead of creating a new one.

                                  Granted that: when posting a message that leads to creating a new thread, user would get a confirmation message (like the one we now have for @all postings for example).

                                  I see at least two benefits for this feature:
                                  * long term: make new users discover and embrace the threads…

                                  • 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.

                                    • Add ability to Archive Inbox Items (to clear the inbox but not delete them)

                                      It would be really great to be able to Archive inbox items with a single click. We don't wish to delete, but we do like keeping our Inbox clean with relevant/unattended to items in some of our Flows.

                                      • Hide inactive flow until next activity

                                        As we are using a lot of different flows which are only occasional used I would appreciate an option to temporarily hider (archive) flows until there is any new activity in that flow.

                                        • Add inline command support for /giphy

                                          Typing /giphy cats inserts an animated gif.
                                          Just like Slack already does: http://giphy.com/posts/slack-adds-giphy-to-every-chatroom-wut
