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.

  1. 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…

    • Build a Flowdock Chrome Extension

      A simple extension that keeps track of new message count (and possible new influx items) and allows me to quickly launch my flow in a new tab.

      • 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.

        • 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…

            • 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…

              • 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.

                  • Star a Message

                    Star a message to come back to, sometimes you cannot respond to a message straight away or act on it. It would be good to have a collated list of messages that you can then come back to. Tagging would work if you were only using one flow, but it does not work across multiple.

                    • mentions should only trigger notifications if they include an @

                      My name is Max. Max also happens to be a word that gets used a lot, especially by programmers. Hence, I get lots of unnecessary notifications.

                      It would be awesome if the only way I got a notification is if someone typed @max, not max.

                      • Need Admin tools for User & Flow searches in large organization

                        As an account owner I have a need to search for specific Users in a list of 1640 (approx 30 pgs). The current paging mechanism only provides jumps of 4 pgs maximum in either direction and therefore manual alphabetical binary searches can take massive amounts of time.

                        Possible Solutions or enhancements:
                        1. On the Users pg provide a search mechanism across multiple pages for specific user name.

                        2. On the Flows pg provide a search mechanism across multiple pages for specific Flow name.

                        3. Move the page advance from the middle to the top of page on both the Users…

                        • Like/Thumbsup/Ditto option on individual messages

                          A lot of times within a flow, many users will want to say the same thing or agree with what's already been said or say they liked what somebody said in a flow. It'd would really cut down noise if we could give the users within the flow an ability to like/thumbsup/Ditto to indicate their agreement with a given message. This will prevent users from saying the same thing again.

                            • Support for longer display names

                              Currently display names are cropped too agressively (10 characters) and thus longer display names cannot be used. This basically prevents using full name as display name. Using full name as display name would be useful especially for bigger organizations where there can be several namesakes or people don't necessarily know each other by first name / nickname.

                              • More tightly integrate email correspondence

                                Email will inevitably be used to communicate between team members. If one team member sends an email to the Flow email address, then Flowdock should forward that email to all team members. Then, when another team member replies to that email from his/her own email client, it is added to the flow as a threaded reply to the original message (and the reply is again forwarded to all team members' email addresses)

                                This way, correspondence that takes place over email between team members is always integrated in Flowdock. People can choose to engage in a conversation using their email client,…

                                    • "Do not disturb schedule" for push notifications.

                                      Allow the user to set a time for push notifications (e.g. 09:00am - 18:00pm)

                                      • Send daily email digest of flow activity

                                        I know this idea was mentioned earlier (in 2010) and that you have implemented something already, however if I am not mistaken (as I am yet to receive any email) it appears that users only get emails for things they have not read? I get the reasoning behind this, but somehow a daily digest regardless if you have read everything or not sounds better. Reason is that it would be great to be able to print it, and share it with people outside of flowdock. I would also like to be able to observe the activities across various flows in…

                                        • Enable systray notifications even when Flowdock/Chrome is closed.

                                          When you have Flowdock open on a tab in Chrome, notifications are great.

                                          But if Chrome is not open / you do not have Flowdock open in a tab, you don't see notifications.

                                          I'd like to see a Flowdock systray icon that would allow notifications to always be displayed.
