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. Add ability to create user groups and assign permissions to that group

    Like having moderators for specific chatrooms but not promoting them to full admin. Allow the option of having edit/delete powers on others chat. removing the ability for everyone to add things to the feed, so on...

      • 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.

                  Update:
                  The previous FD Team had planned to work on this feature. While the current team may work on it in the future, it is not expected to be completed in the near term. We are updating the suggestion status to reflect that more accurately

                  Previous Comments:
                  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"

                    When I'm editing what I have said, I would like to be able to strikethrough some text instead of just deleting it. That way, I don't disrupt the flow of the conversation for people who come back to it later.

                    • 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.

                      • User status is global: As a user, I want my status changes to show in all flows where I am part of @team

                        User status is global:

                        As a user
                        I want to update my status in one place
                        I want my updated status to be visible in all flows where I am @team
                        So that my co-workers can know what I am working on
                        As I balance my time across projects

                        Narrative:
                        Just as the notifications for @team recognize the one:many relationship between users and flows status needs similar re-think. Our teams often work on multiple projects. Resource availability, or planned activity can effect many projects.

                        For example, if a developer identifies in his status that he is focusing on Project 1234…

                        • add a @thread mention group.

                          Team and group mentions are convenient, but sometimes I just want to re-ping anyone who is mentioned in or partaken in a given thread. Now I have to manually list them out, or use @team and ping people who don't need to be notified.

                          @thread should only function once a thread is started and do nothing when creating a new-non threaded message.

                          • 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.

                              • 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 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

                                      • Add support for animated gifs in avatar.

                                        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.

                                        • make it possible to determine which user added a hashtag to a post

                                          When a hashtag is added to a post, there is an extremely brief notification of who added it. After this there seems to be no way to determine who added the tag, which in some cases can be used to add unwanted (and potentially abusive) comments to a post with effective anonymity. A method to determine who has added a given tag would mean that people are accountable for any tags they add.
