Recently updated with a new look and better UI

What do you like best?

Flow was recently updated, it now has easy to select options to switch between a list view, kanban and calendar modes. The project drag+drop interface has been much improved over their previous offering. All the issues I had with it (and reasons I previously went with Leankit) have more or less disappeared. Huzzah!

What do you dislike?

It's much more intuitive than it used to be but the interface could be smoother still - some of the animations are lacking. Still no support for sprints!! There is a small issue with printing out weekly task reports: On the interface they actually highlight things according to due date/priority. Sadly this doesn't come out when you print!! Arg!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It does lack just a few features such as sprint support, easy resource allocation, timings for tasks. But having spoken to their support they're already looking at implementing these. Seeing how huge the UI update is, I can understand if they're flagging but it means there is going to be a delay before they've fully implemented these much requested features. Thankfully, they were not on our critical requirement list and Flow is cheaper than the alternative we considered (JIRA)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Project management was previously handled by leankit, we'd looked at Atlassians JIRA but this was more cost effective.

Robust feature set and love the new redesign

What do you like best?

Easily customizable interface, expansive search and sorting, interface is super easy to navigate, with a well structured IA. Easy tagging and commenting is great. Looking forward to the project timeline feature, which will be a game changer for visualizing project management, processes and deadlines

What do you dislike?

The dragging feature is not very responsive and I frequently have trouble reorganizing tasks by dragging, often accidentally dropping sub tasks in the wrong place. Notifications are not tailored enough to filter out what’s truly important and I often lose track of the notes I need to read within my catch-up feed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend as a robust and flexible project management tool that can accommodate many different workflows and team needs. Great for keeping track of project timelines and assigning responsibility for deliverables.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Flow has been invaluable to keeping track of project flows, notifyig my team members regarding available deliverables, and having clear views of project roadmaps, upcoming features, and deadlines. I rely heavily on Flow to prioritize my design work on a daily basis and stay organized as far as timelines and outstanding tasks.

Switched to Flow from Basecamp, so far so good

What do you like best?

The biggest thing that brought us to Flow is the hierarchy of tasks. We love how you can have an overarching task and then break it down further by subtasks. Also love the Private tasks and the Catch Up features.

What do you dislike?

-When you click to Flow through an email notification, it opens the web version vs the app. Not sure if there's a way to change this?

-We've had a few bugs w/ email notifications...where people who are subscribed do not receive them

-Don't think the Kanban UI is very easy to view/use, but you have the option of List view so it's not a problem

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely try out the trial, and make sure everyone's email notifications are working properly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Project management, deadline management, and internal communication.

A great project management tool

What do you like best?

I've worked with a lot of project management apps and tools (Trello, Basecamp, etc..) but Flow tops them all for it's simplicity yet robust functionality. It's easy to understand and gets things done.

What do you dislike?

There are still a few bugs and glitches, in particular, it's very difficult to copy and paste out of task description. Also, I would like to see more functionality in duplicating sections, not just projects, for recurring projects that contain more than one task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Flow is great because it's versatile. If you're a Trello fan, it also allows you to create Kahban boards that are very similar. It does integrate with Slack and Google Calendar, but probably doesn't have as many integrations as other project management tools. We use this tool with 20-30 people and it works very well. You do have to commit to using it exclusively for project assignment (as opposed to e-mail) in order to get the full benefit out of this software. I don't know if there is a free trial, but I would definitely encourage you to try a demo with the Flow staff to see if this would meet your company's requirements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main business problem is coordinating hundreds of marketing tasks and projects happening weekly across multiple brand and campaigns. Flow has allowed us to keep everything organized, and on time, while helping to gauge bandwidth to allocate projects in an effective and efficient manner.

Simple, Beautiful Task Management

What do you like best?

Flow is the first (and only) task management application that I've ever had teams actually use (and like). It's extremely simple, well-organized and packs just enough punch to get the job done without bloat or a visually distracting interface.

It works on all platforms, has great support and is always improving.

What do you dislike?

It would be neat to be able to map tasks/activities visually (Gantt).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it. It's seriously great.

It's worth thinking about where it will fit in with your existing tools, however. Flow supports file uploads and often it's very helpful to have files associated with comments/tasks. But, if you choose to do this, make sure it's agreed upon amongst the team. Without that policy in place, you'll have some files in Flow, some in Dropbox, some in Drive, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Flow makes it easy to delegate tasks to anyone and track their progress over time. For example, I can assign a task to Tom (UX Designer). He can chime in and then delegate the task to Sarah (Visual Designer). She can chime in and delegate it to Caitlin (Information Architect). All of this happens in the same thread and all comments/files/date changes/etc. are very easy to follow.

Flow is the best tool I've found to see who's working on what, when it will be done and what's happening with it at any given moment.

Great for small teams

What do you like best?

We use Flow for a task manager and reminder for recurring tasks. So far it's been fast to learn and easy to use.

It has a simple interface with just the essentials.

It makes it easy for us to remember to follow up and lets each team member see which tasks are currently being worked on.

The phone app is one of the best I've seen, you can do every task on it quickly.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if we could integrate flow with our help-desk tool SAManage, they complement each other well.

The dashboard could be improved a bit, it's almost too simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is a free trial, try it out. Try the phone app.

If you have a simple need, this is the tool. If you want more functionality, this might not be it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a small team who collaborates with superusers in Europe, US and Asia. We needed a simple tool with a fast learning curve, to make sure everyone could keep track of which tasks were being worked on and when.
