Hey there Workflowy folks.
While things have been a little quiet since the end of January, the team has been busy working on speed improvements. Those have yet to be released so you can expect them in the near future. We’ve also started working on the next feature and hopefully we’ll have more to share about it as it moves along.
In the meantime, we’ve also been working on creating guides and templates we think you’ll find useful and interesting. The guides cover how to implement some of the more popular productivity systems using Workflowy. We’ve also created a bunch of templates around popular books that feature methodologies or frameworks you might find useful. Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments below.
