There's been quite a long lull in significant Workflow improvements. For some (many?) of us, they are not yet useable. The intersection between Workflows and Notes is especially problematic. Could we please have efforts on this resumed? 

Please refer to this post for a list of requested improvements. Also, I invite feedback on the relative priority of these.

Hi, Reuben, 

Thanks for your thoughts. Workflows and Notes development are on hold for now while we work on other features. We'll keep fixing bugs as needed, but no new improvements are planned in the immediate future. 

We are intentionally limiting the scope of new feature work to just a few things at a time. Right now, that includes the Selection Menu which is currently in beta, and a prioritized list of other improvements we hope to accomplish in the next few months. 

Having said that, we recently had an internal conversation recognizing the need for additional work on Workflows, particularly in regard to note management. We will re-evaluate after next quarter, to decide then when this should go on the roadmap.

This is quite disappointing. I have given up workflows, and this evidence of their low priority with FL shows me that I made a good decision.

Decent workflows would have far more value than the new selection menu, which is almost as annoying as it is helpful.

This doesn't help Reuben, but that is my biggest hangup with Workflows and why I decided not to use them until it is fixed. The amount of Notebooks that Workflows create is unbearable. It reminds me a lot of the old notes system. If users had the ability to control the output and manage Workflows Notebooks dynamically, I would use them again. Yes

It seems to me that note management piece is similar to your #5 Project Name Field

To me Note management has to involve 1, 3 & 5 (Multiple Note SupportAllow Defining of Note Attributes, & Project Name Field), but especially 3 & 5.

Adam,

Is it possible to fix this old bug in the workflow?

Although I and other Dutch collegues mentioned it several times, it isn't fixed yet.

The workflow are pretty useless for us now!
