MetaLab's Flow upgrades to full project management suite
Recognizing the need for project management in collaborative environments, MetaLab has updated their Flow software to function better in team situations. The task management platform, currently for web and iOS devices, allows users to create to-do lists, assign tasks to team members and now can track a project and all its players from start to finish. Users can seamlessly move from the web to iOS, continuing task conversations and assignments with no break in communication.
The modern workplace has created a larger demand for on-the-go software for collaborations and project tracking. Flow has adapted well, bringing an intuitive UI design to the user experience and focusing on mobile adaptability. This allows users to focus more on the work at hand, and less on managing the project management software. While Flow is a pay for play piece of software, for many businesses looking for collaboration and project management tools, the cost is cheaper than an office supplies bill. The alternatives are costly and heavily managed pieces of software that usually require a full time employee to control. Flow's streamlined UI offers all users the ability to easily manage projects and tasks.
Some highlighted enhancements in the new Flow:
- Workspaces: Everything is organized into workspaces, making it super easy to keep everyone on the same page and to onboard (and offboard) teammates.
- Dashboard: Keep tabs on what everyone's doing in the workspace from the Dashboard or focus on activity from the tasks you've subscribed to. The Dashboard feed acts like threaded email notifications, grouping same-task activities together and letting you respond with a comment inline.
- Shared Upcoming: View everyone's due tasks in the new Upcoming calendar view.
- App Pane: Tasks and day lists appear instantly in the app pane, allowing you to still view and manage task lists on the left. Continued on the next page
