Changelog (Version 0.9.83)

We had a busy week this week! We worked on releasing new features we felt would clarify and streamline workflow. Fixes were centred around improving UI and simplifying file attachment behaviour.

New:

  • Flow Menu: We’ve added some new links to the Flow Menu within the Main Menu. You can now quickly access the About Flow page, share Flow with friends, and view our roadmap right from this menu.
  • Team details: a new tooltip has been added to the team description in the team details pane to let users know whether or not they’re able to edit or add to team details. As team details are only editable by account Admins this will add some clarity to other users about their editing capabilities.
  • Tasks: “Jump to top” and “Jump to latest” buttons have been added in the task pane. This makes it even easier for you to jump between the latest comments on a task and the task details.
  • Task comments: We’ve updated the task comments to display only the first five items in a comment feed. This will show you the five most recent comments on a task with the option to show all task comments if you’d like to view older comments for context.

Fixed:

  • Task completed alert bubble behaviour updated to be universal across the app
  • Improved UI in the Sort menu dropdown
  • Corrected behaviour for project sections with longer names to not interfere with buttons in project section header
  • Fixed attachment display so that all files are visible
  • Made attachments accessible on completed tasks.
  • Improved task view breadcrumbs for Windows app
  • Avatars in assignee and followers fields have been made more defined.

This week we looked into improving readability and uniformity throughout the app. Your feedback has been crucial as we continue to make improvements in Flow X so keep those comments coming and check out our new feedback board here: https://feedback.getflow.com

New

  • Projects Sidebar: We’ve created a new hover over display to show the full name of a project so that if your project name is cut off by the projects sidebar you can still view the full name without clicking into the project.

Fixed

  • Edit Team menu item updated to perform as intended.
  • New task form has been updated to optimize viewing on small screens.
  • Improved project sidebar to display changes to group and project names.
  • Various UI tweaks to improve visual alignment and consistency in the team projects dashboard.

Flow X Beta (Version 0.9.81)

This week we’re opening Flow X in beta to all users!

To those of you who have been in the beta environment since launch, we thank you so much for all of your feedback — you’ve helped us get Flow X to where it is now. For users that may be new to beta we’ve made it even easier to access Flow X from the new X menu in the top left corner of Flow — more details on that below.

If you have an iOS device you can also check out Flow X for iOS — which includes Chat directly in the Flow iOS app. Start by downloading TestFlight here: https://testflight.apple.com/join/odYFZDVD. Once TestFlight has been downloaded, you’ll be able to download the Flow X for iOS (Beta) app.

These updates will be posted to beta and production weekly so even if you aren’t in Flow X you’ll be able to keep an eye on the progress we’re making in beta.

New:

  • Teams: Team details will now be displayed in a view similar to the task pane. This way you can review team details without having to navigate to a new page. You can access team details by clicking on the avatars in the navigation bar on the team projects dashboard or from the “...” menu on the right side of the team projects dashboard. Team descriptions can only be edited by account Admins but all members of the team will be able to view them.
  • Tasks: We’ve added the option to duplicate tasks to Flow X, making it easier to create commonly used tasks right from the “...” menu in the task pane.
  • Harvest: The Harvest integration is now available in Flow X.
  • Project groups: We’ve updated project group creation and renaming forms to match the UI of Flow X and create more cohesion throughout the app.
  • Flow X: You can now access Flow X directly from Flow. Start by clicking the “X” in the top left corner of Flow beside the main menu icon. Once the X menu is open choose “switch to Flow X beta”. This will automatically opt you into the Flow Beta program so you can quickly jump into Flow X to see what’s new. We can’t wait to hear what you think!

Fixed:

  • Streamlined project colour behaviour and options to simplify choosing project colours and improve their display

Flow X Beta (Version 0.9.80)

This week we expanded capabilities in projects and the team project dashboard to give you more granular ways of organizing projects. Have a look around the new team projects dashboard and let us know what you think!

New:

  • Team Projects Dashboard: We’ve added a filter to the team projects dashboard. This will allow you to filter all projects within a team by Status, Timeline, and Privacy so that you can make sure projects that are most relevant to you stay on track.
  • Projects: You can now add icons to projects which will be displayed in the team projects dashboard, allowing you another way to differentiate projects at a glance. You can access the colour and icon picker from the "..." menu on the individual project card in the team projects dashboard. 

Fixes:

  • Improved navigation between team projects dashboard and individual projects for single team organizations.
  • Updated team projects dashboard cards tasks count to improve accuracy

  • Projects dashboard: We’ve updated the Team Project Dashboard to better fit the Flow X aesthetic. This new look makes it easier for you to invite new team members right from the navigation bar while laying the foundation for future updates to this view.

Fixed:

  • Fixed issue in Home that created duplicate notification cards
  • Added task priority column to project list view
  • Updated UI to point Share Feedback link to new feedback board

A roundup of what's new in the Flow X Beta.

With the public release of Flow X in beta coming up — stay tuned for more on this — we wanted to share the progress we’ve made since we last updated you on all the great things we’re working on! We’re so excited to share Flow X with you when it’s released publicly in beta and can’t wait to hear your feedback.

  • Chat: A new version of what was previous called "Flow Chat" has been released in beta with Flow X and we've made it available to all organizations — regardless of your subscription tier. We’re hoping this gives you a more immersive experience in Flow by allowing you to communicate more effectively with your teammates. In Flow chat you can create group channels to discuss specific topics or projects as well as direct messages between teammates. 
  • Team Project Dashboard: We’ve updated the Team Project Dashboard to adopt the Flow X aesthetic in preparation for future feature releases in this view.
  • Drag & Drop: In the Home tab you can now drag and drop tasks to make quick work of rearranging your day’s work. We’ve also added the option to drag and drop a file to attach it to a task comment. 
  • Sidebars: We’ve restyled sidebars throughout the app to make it easier to jump between projects and from DMs to chat channels. We also have new features planned for the sidebar in the calendar tab so keep an eye out for those as they’re released! 
  • Project Sections: We’ve added project sections to the breadcrumb path at the top of the task pane to better show where an individual task exists within a team. We’ve also added project sections to task comments to give a clearer understanding of when a task is moved from one section to the other.
