This may seem kind of silly and unnecessary to some users, perhaps not so relevant for what Workflowy sets out to provide, but I'm a multi-practitioner and I find that while Workflowy caters fantastically for every profession and use case (computer graphics, software development, writing, general life management) the only skillset it doesn't really cater towards are the musicians out there. I use it for absolutely everything else, it has every single other element needed for the running of a music project, but it does not have this. It feels like a missed opportunity!
The inclusion of filetype support was a fantastic improvement as it allowed all my projects to exist in their entirety within Workflowy, eliminating the need for other tools and apps. Support for both audio file upload and in-app memo recording would be incredible.
The ability to record voice memos in-app would also really serve those audio note-takers out there who just want to quickly articulate a thought, which I find myself doing an awful lot of and then having to transcribe notes to Workflowy later afterwards.
Especially nice if voice bullets display waveforms so it's straightforward to tell notes apart by sight.
Unfortunately it does seem like the Workflowy roadmap is borderline non-existent or quite outdated, and is certainly void of any properly useful features of genuine utility to the user base.
Updates have been piecemeal and feature updates are very strange, out of touch, or straight up relatively useless (such as the new to-do feature, when a function for completing items in lists already existed and was literally used all the time).
This update cycle has lasted for a while and seems quite frustrating when there are big lists of low-hanging fruit and fixes users have been begging for for a while.
No idea what's happening internally but from the outside it seems like very skewed priorities, judging from other similar posts from users on here, reddit etc.
Idk personally I'm pretty disappointed with Workflowy currently and have been looking for alternatives to migrate to.
