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 search/filter to user page for admins

    Manually digging through 900 users to remove one is a chore, we have to do this often...please help.

    • 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…

        • 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…

          • make the status appear beside the name, be global and not create a message

            Currently, the status is very hard to find (try it yourself). SPOILER: click a name and hover mouse on the popup. Solution: Make it visible beside the name inside parentheses like this: Nickname (Status)

            Furthermore, the status is only active in one particular flow where you enter the status. Don't know about you but I consider status to reflect on my overall status related to flowdock i.e. "Away", "Do not disturb" or "On vacation", not some specific flow.

            Lastly, the status command creates an information/notification message which tells what I changed my status to. This might be beneficial sometimes (I…

                  • 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.

                      I think it would a be a useful feature to having the possibility to back to the flow history to a specific date "instantly". Instead of scrolling to the top and wait some loading until reaching the part of the flow that we wanted.

                      • Display inline oembed content such as imgur.com and vimeo

                        You seem to only support a few websites which are capable of producing inline content such as twitter and youtube. There are many websites which are capable of defining inline content via the oembed standard. It would very convenient to have all oembed providers rendered inline in flowdock.

                          • 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.

                              Google Drive provides an activity stream for whole accounts and folders in the web interface. It would be great if this could show up in the Flowdock inbox with the ability to pick specific folders for each flow.

                                • 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.

                                  • Allow link markdown when linking to github issues

                                    We love markdown and we post links to GH issues a lot, but we noticed that even when employing markdown (such as [PR](
                                    https://github.com/organization/repository/pull/148) the html link
                                    representation is overriden and displays the full Github issue text (name, repository, issue title) instead of the intended display text.

                                    The expected behavior would be to show a regular link if MarkDown was used, even if the URL is for Github. It makes our chats convoluted to have the long GitHub issue listed instead of a short hyperlink.

                                    • 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,…

                                        We are looking to overhaul the UX of team inbox and this is among the pool of planned improvements so it might find its way into the remake.
