A good choice for collaboration and project management

2018-12-19

It has been great to have everything in one place: team chat, task management and tracking, and project management/scheduling tools. Team is really responsive to feature requests.

Pros

Different views are useful for different use cases and avoid duplicating entries between collaboration and project management

Cons

Its a newer product and some of the features can a be a bit buggy from a user interface perspective.

Hive is a very good Project Management software tool, only lacking on budget / reporting.

2019-08-04

Hive is a good project management tool when you focus on the projects.

Pros

Hive allows for a few different method of project management for both agile and waterfall projects.

Cons

The first of which is an individual users task list that can be prioritized. Each of our employees wants to see what they are responsible for across all projects and then set priority without having to use a separate program (like Asana).

Trello on Steroids

2018-12-19

Better management of longer-term tasks and projects.

Pros

The program is feature-rich, with templates, timers, snooze, priority, Slack, Google drive and GitHub integrations, time tracking, and resource management.

Cons

I wish I could invite "Lite" users, that are cheaper to add, but who can view and edit only selected tickets.

Great for productivity and task tracking at mass

2019-09-19

Anytime a stakeholder needs an idea of where the project is going, all that needs to be done is to login to Hive.

Pros

Notifications are great to also help track tasks and ensure completion of tasks amongst the team is done well.

Cons

Also, I have used other project management softwares, and a lack of a desktop app or a addon (meaning you have to always open a tab to get the notifications) is a bit of a bummer

Love Hive!!

2020-10-13

The Hive app and mobile are also awesome!

Pros

We had tried other programs, but Hive had the best package of support, collaboration and work flow!

Cons

Time tracking needs some work, but that is eclipsed by the wonders of version control and mark up of assets prior to approval.

It's good, and connects well

2019-04-04

We needed to track a digital transformation project & the agency we were using wanted all stakeholders to use this tool.

Pros

I liked the ability to connect it via API to Slack, Dropbox & Git

Cons

The gantt chart models got very complex very quickly and I felt the UI didn't do anything to overcome that

Easy project management

2020-03-31

Assigning tasks, checking off to-do lists and tracking time is what I use Hive for on a daily basis, and with great pleasure!

Pros

I love using the Gantt-chart option when setting up projects, to keep a nice overview of the status of a project.

Cons

What I like least is the way integration with email and Slack is done.

Great Resource for Small Nonprofit!

2018-12-18

Hive allowed our team to better streamline and coordinate project management tasks, and played a huge role in eliminating unnecessary inbox activity.

Pros

The ability to view projects from multiple layouts (eg calendar, status, gantt).

Cons

With so many options, it took a little while for our team to function on the same page.

Great software at a competitive price

2019-09-20

Hive allowed us to get projects spun up faster and has increased our cross-functional team collaboration.

Pros

Additionally, the template design is robust and allows you to quickly form a project plan.

Cons

I would like a better alert system and the ability to leave alerts unread - once you read them, they disappear from the main notification tab.

Hive is a Complete Gamechanger!

2020-10-11

The ease of use and the user friendly interface has made the adoption process smooth and collaboration has seemed to soar so far.

Pros

What I love most about Hive is the number of options you have to make the project plan work for you.

Cons

One of the only cons I have seen so far is the Jira integration. We have a software team that operates solely through Jira and while that works for them, we've been trying to bridge the gap between Jira and Hive so that we can work efficiently.

Hive is the Most Versatile Task-Management Tool I've Ever Used

2019-08-28

I have been demonstrably more productive at scheduling out my time and seeing what's on my plate.

Pros

The simple fact that you can instantly convert a project from Kanban style to a calendar view is incredible.

Cons

The arrangement of the projects at the top isn't ideal.

A good tool for multiple projects

2018-12-19

Some of the tools of the platform, such as the management of estimated time to complete the tasks, helps us to work in this mixed regime.

Pros

Be it as a schedule, status or Gantt view. This allows us to configure the best way to follow each project, either by the team's need or simply to facilitate the follow-up on a daily basis.

Cons

It is necessary to change the visualization of the tasks and to improve the speed of access and update, the simple act of changing the menu options generates a lot of loading time.

Hive is a much needed resource during remote work and continues to improve!

2020-11-17

Project management and in-house (only) team communication.

Pros

I also love the "my actions" view because it keeps everything organized for me and I can stay on track and on time while juggling many different projects at once.

Cons

Instead, you have to manually adjust the order of tasks by due date, which is a little tedious.

Great project management software for our remote team

2020-11-18

We rely on this platform heavily to track all of our projects.

Pros

Helps us organize all of our client and internal projects and track time for each team member.

Cons

The chat functionality and notifications are not as good as some other communication platforms that we've used (e.g.

Great application for managing multiple projects

2019-08-28

I'm able to tell the clients exactly in what stage their project is in a few clicks. No task is or project is left behind!

Pros

How easy it is to see the progress, or lack, of progress of a project.

Cons

I would like to be log in in my account instead of having to log on all the time.

A Great Project Management Tool!

2019-08-27

My team and I use this application every day and I've found it really helpful for project management, which is one of my day to day tasks. I was responsible for finding a PM tool when I joined the team—and I'm so grateful that I found Hive!

Pros

Status view, calendar, Gantt chart and table view are all really helpful.

Cons

Also, notifications are often messy.

Overall good, can tell quirks are getting worked out as the product grows and evolves.

2020-03-31

Overall it has been good. We have watched the program evolve and have definitely noticed improvements in ease of use and functionality. Several questions/ functional issues that I have had and expressed through surveys and chats have been modified/corrected, so it's good to see that the company is actually paying attention to how people are using it.

Pros

-Multiple methods of tracking and organizing projects. -Easy for multiple people to see what needs to be done on a project -timelines make is easy to see where a project is going -chats make it easy to keep shared notes available to everybody -The time tracking feature is a nice addition.

Cons

-Definitely don't like the new blue expansion boxes in the Gnatt view. Too easy to rename/delete something -Can't see my notes on Hive mobile.

Good and Bad, but Mostly Good

2020-11-23

We've had a large amount of issues with recurring actions and auto-snooze as mentioned above and I've reported it several times.

Pros

For our team of five, the most beneficial features are: ability to assign two people, ability to color code projects, ability to track time within a task, ability to add approvers within a task, direct and group messaging within the app (replaced separate use of Slack), Notes and ability to share them, and the "status" and "table" views for projects.

Cons

For our team, we have had repeat issues with recurring actions not functioning correctly, specifically with auto-snoozing actions and sub actions (even past their due date) as well as due dates when we try to update recurring actions. We shifted our set-up and re-entered all actions at one point to try and workaround the need for a recurring action. We also prefer for actions with a date range for a due date to show up as of the start of that date range so we know how many days we have to work on something, however they show up the day it's due.

The Only Project Management Software with the Features I need

2019-08-27

Pros

Hive is the only project management software that is cloud collaborative, has infinite sub tasks, and Gantt charts so it was an easy choice.

The mobile app has significantly reduced functionality compared to desktop.

Transformed our workflow

2018-12-18

We have hundreds of projects in a calendar year.

Pros

Flexibility for just a task or an entire project.

Cons

Also, if you check off a completed task within a project, it removes it from the project - so attaching files to the project (not the task) keep them accessible for length of project.

Convenient, Easy-to-Use Online Project Management

2020-11-17

Hive becomes a more efficient tool all the time, especially as we have established standards across the team.

Pros

We've expanded our internal team by a third in the past few months, and we needed a tool that would allow us to work more closely on a large number of short- and long-term projects.

Cons

It can be a challenge to set up projects because as soon as you assign team members to tasks, they get alerts! We have to create the projects and times first, then assign roles at the end to avoid an avalanche of notices going out to the team.
