Changelog (October 13, 2020)

We delayed our update this week to enjoy a long weekend and Canadian Thanksgiving. Now that we’re all full of turkey we can update you on what we’ve shipped! We’re moving away from single feature releases to more large scale projects so you’ll see less new items in our weekly updates but we’re continuing to ship bug fixes and tweaks every week!

New:

  • New setup experience: We’ve created new steps for new organization creation and invitee setup. This new process not only has an updated aesthetic to match Flow X but also to be more intuitive.
  • File Preview: A new audio and video player has been added to the file preview so you no longer have to download files to view them.

Fixed:

  • Formatted sidebar selection menu spacing
  • Fixed off centre Sort-By menus showing in Windows app
  • Released a fix for date picker popover getting cut off

This week we shipped a highly anticipated feature- drag and drop has been released in My Tasks! We also cleared out several bug reports related to UI and formatting issues and updated the site icon to match our updated aesthetics.

Changelog (September 28, 2020)

This week we took big steps to get everyone integrated into the Flow X experience and continued to make improvements based on feedback from you. This included a few bug fixes as well as recent feature requests. Visit our roadmap to see what we have planned for the future and submit new requests!

New:

  • Chat: To give users that weren’t enrolled in beta a look at our new Chat feature we’ve enabled chat for all organizations. Account Admins can check out our help centre article for details on how to enable and disable Chat.
  • iOS App: We’ve released Flow X in our iOS app! If you didn’t have a chance to test it out in beta you can now download it right from the Apple App Store or update your current app to get started!
  • Sound Effects: We’ve added the option to silence user interface sounds within the app. This way you can control interaction sounds caused by liking comments or completing a task separately from notification sounds.

Fixed:

  • Updated repeating task behaviour to apply changes to future copies of the task
  • Corrected keyboard shortcut module to reflect up to date labelling
  • Released a fix for the bug causing an error with exporting

Changelog (September 21, 2020)

We spent this week focused on completing launch plans and getting Flow X out to everyone. It feels great to finally share Flow X with all of you and we look forward to your continued feedback. As we spent the bulk of this week in launch mode we didn’t ship as much as we have in past weeks but we still have some new features and fixes to update you on.

New:

  • Tasks: You can now make an existing task a subtask from the ••• menu in the task card. This has replaced the old method of dragging a task into another to make it a subtask in order to simplify the process and clarify the UI.
  • Subtasks: We’ve also updated the subtask card ••• menu to include the option to convert a subtask to a task. This will keep the details of the subtask intact (like tags and deadlines) and promote the subtask to a standard task.

Fixed:

  • Corrected behaviour for multiple numbered lists in messages, comments, and notes
  • Improved display in Safari
  • Added additional backend support for importing

Changelog (Version 0.9.93)

Today, we're excited to share a big announcement! After 6 months and over 24 releases while Flow X has been in Beta, we're ready to share to share Flow X with the world. This Wednesday (September 16th), Flow X will become the default version of the app.

But don't worry, we won't disrupt your workflow. If you'd rather continue using the old version of the app, you're more than welcome to through the end of the year. We want to make it easy to transition at your own pace — we know there's been plenty of change already in 2020.

New

  • Importing: In Flow X you can now import tasks in CSV files into existing projects! This will streamline the set up process for new users as well as help teams working across multiple tools to stay on track. Get started by opening the “...” menu in the project header and choosing the now enabled “Import Tasks” option.
  • Chat Menus: We’ve updated chat menus in private DMs, group DMs, and chat channels to include new options like archiving chat channels as well as improving layouts and updates to labels for better clarity.
  • Tags: There is now a section for tags directly in the Tasks sidebar. This way you can favourite tags you search for often and jump to this view right from the sidebar. Tag views can also be filtered by assignee to further narrow down task lists.

Improved

  • Alignment in section dropdown in task panes fixed to be formatted correctly.
  • Improved copy and labelling throughout app in for clearer UI
  • Project details for private projects updated to include the option to remove members

New:

  • Drag and Drop: Drag and drop capabilities have been expanded further to allow you to manually reorder subtasks and project groups.
  • Sounds Effects: A new notification sound has been added to Flow X. We’ve also added a new sound to actions within the app so now you’ll have audible confirmation when completing a task, liking a message, and much more!

Fixed:

  • Freezing issue when closing task pane resolved.
  • Collapsed subtask state now persists when navigating away.
