Integration with Mac/iOS share
I like the chrome extension, but I'd like to be able to share info from other apps (Spark Mail Links; text from word processing programs; screenshots; etc.). Having WorkFlowy integration into the "share" feature on Mac and iOS would be a big help.
You make perfect sense. I avoid all social media platforms like the plague too. What I can tell you about the forum here is that we do not have a meaningful system in place to make anything of the +1's here. I read all posts (along with helpdesk emails which have about 200 times more feature requests than in the forum here)... and then I advocate for those features that are most popularly asked for in our weekly meetings – all of which the team is already aware of and do have on our internal list.
We're hiring more developers to speed up development. The team has doubled in size over the last couple of months, with our most recent front-end developer joining us just yesterday. Our brand new UX designer just came out with a new design post on our blog (blog.workflowy.com)... and so things will happen at a faster pace now...
Hi Max, since you're so prolific here, I would like to invite you, once again, to our users group on Slack:
The reason I am doing so is because I am the only one who revises these forums on the team. And then I log all requests for consideration... however, in the Slack group you can dialog with other WorkFlowy users in a more effective way, as well as other team members, including Jesse, our CEO.
All the +1s you're giving for different feature requests... there's an ongoing conversation in the Slack group about what we're up to and what we think about certain requests. The only joy you're going to get as far as feature requests here is that I log them for the team to look at... whereas in the Slack group you get to interact in a meaningful way. I hope that makes sense.
The Slack group is an infinitely better space to advocate for features and also stay in the loop. This forum is vestigial in a certain sense.
Thank you, Frank. True, you invited me before! TBH I avoid Slack as much as I try to avoid social media and the things that make me procrastinate.
I find this "voting up" kind of forum so much quicker and to the point for the purpuse of asking for features. I found people make an effort to write more clearly and ellaborated here as they are more like blogposts that keeps well organized and are resurfaced with new votes and answers.
Whereas Slack I believe is more like an ongoing conversation that favors more ephimeral thoughts and less elaborated content, therefore makes it easy for one to loose in the rabbit hole of loads of channels. Sometimes trying to find a few months old request that is hidden inside a channel buried by all the new conversations that came after that might take me to another conversation and you know… basically, I end up reading and writing for hours instead of getting my own stuff done :/
That's why I try to avoid Slack worspaces in general; nothing against the specific WorkFlowy group. Anyway, I hear you, so I might be visiting the group a bit more often :)
Thanks, and kind regards!
I currently LIVE in Workflowy for Mac every day.
Much of my workflow is task based, and I utilise date tags to manage things pretty well. However there are a lot of items which I regularly need duplicated into my Calendar.
If I open Workflowy in a browser window, I can just click the browser share button, and share with other apps. This works great for making calendar entries quickly. In the Wokflowy App for Mac, you can't do this. Would be great to have better access to Mac/iOS share features so I can stop managing it with workarounds.
