Hive is a cloud-based project management solution designed for teams of all sizes who need to share files, chat and automate task management. It includes workflow templates, group messaging, multiple task views and over 100 app integrations.

Hive allows users to create and organize tasks for themselves and their teammates, with task deadlines, attachments and labels. The Kanban-style status view lets users track project progress and change deadlines and workloads, and project tasks can be planned in the Gantt chart.

Files stored in Box, Dropbox and Google Drive can be accessed in a single page, and users can attach files to actions or drag and drop them into messages to share them with team members.

Hive includes action templates which enable the automatic assignment of recurring tasks. Users can select which task to assign, who to assign it to and the completion deadline.

Awesome tools and support!

I was surprised of how good it is. Would definitely recommend for those who are searching for alternatives for popular apps like Basecamp and Trello.

Pros

Very easy to use, has some great tools to track your work progress and the customer support is simply great.

Cons

It lacks a clock to help in the hour registering tool.

Best Project Management Software

Best product!

Pros

Has so many features and integrations! Incredibly easy to use and there is so much flexibility in what you can do with it. They are always improving the product!! I absolutely love that you can message with your team in the same place! It eliminated us having to use two different softwares such as Slack and Asana.

Cons

Nothing to not like! Hive is incredible!

Trello and Slack combined in a single app..

We were looking for a team communication app that had a Kanban Board so that we wouldn't be using 2 different apps for communication and project management. Hive was just we needed and it delivered as expected. The app works flawlessly, fast and no surprises. We are very happy with it.

Pros

- Kanban Board and team communication in a single view
- Google Drive and Dropbox integrations
- Ease of use
- Clean UI
- Simple to advanced project view options.

Cons

- Its keyboard shortcuts are not perfect. Yet, improving.
- Lack of favicon and browser title notifications

Great management system

We really loved using Hive for our project management. They are responsive and work hard to improve their product.

Pros

I love that Hive is continually expanding their functionalities. They are also very responsive.

Cons

The privacy button notification can be confusing. The mobile app needs more work but it is actually much better than before.

Hive Review

Hive makes it easy to organize data and consolidate information through grouping together actions by their progress in their assigned project. It allows everyone to know what is going on and what needs to be done. Working in multiple locations in a small company makes it hard to always communicate all your actions to your coworkers, but Hive provides a great way to keep everyone updated.

Pros

The organizational methods, grouping actions into their progress status, and viewing actions of all the members makes working together as a small company much easier.

Cons

That projects do not immediately show up on the pinned bar to all members that can view the group and that there isn't a more consolidated area to specifically attach files in each project.

Hive Works!

As I mentioned above, working remotely can be difficult but I've been able to stay connected to my business partners using this software.

Pros

I like the fact that it consolidates the functionality of Slack, Trello and other project management software packages into one. I work remotely and it's easy to stay in touch with other members of the team on a minute-to-minute basis.

Cons

I can't get it to work reliably on my iPhone, despite updating it regularly. I have an older phone (5s) because I just like to have a smaller phone to carry. Soon this needs to change, but for now if I get notifications from Hive I have to find a place to pull up my laptop.

Want to jumpstart your teams' productivity? GET HIVE!

Pros

The personalized customer support is phenomenal and made us feel like we were the only customers! Our team loves having the chat bar right inside of Hive to minimize​ the need to switch windows.

Cons

The software needs to have a dashboard where it pulls data from the individual projects and gives you a dashboard of all project status in one view.

Hive has the best UX

Hive made team collaboration and project management possible

Pros

Hive syncs with all of the apps I use seamlessly. If I want to click and drag a module, it allows me to, and it's very intuitive

Cons

It is an additional add on. In this new age of constant new apps or signing up for another gig, it seems extraneous, but Hive really is worth it!

Trello on Steroids

Better communication and organization among our small team. Better management of longer-term tasks and projects.

Pros

I really like how organized Hive is designed and the ability the create custom views. The program is feature-rich, with templates, timers, snooze, priority, Slack, Google drive and GitHub integrations, time tracking, and resource management. Hive has really useful built-in apps like News, which we use to keep our office up-to-date with the latest changes. New features are being added all the time so it's exciting to see them grow. Also, current features are being improved upon which is great.

Cons

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

A good tool for multiple projects

My company works with local and remote teams. With Hive we manage and use human resources more assertively. 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

one of the best features of the tool is the ability to view projects in different ways. 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.
I recommend for teams with a mixed regime of employees (presence and remote) and for those who work with multiple projects requiring daily updating

Cons

Unfortunately the mobile app version of the platform still has many problems. 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. I believe that the mobile version needs a complete overhaul, I've already tried to use it on the iOS and Android platforms, but the problems are similar and many members of my team simply stopped using the app.

A good choice for collaboration and project management

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. I think this is already a good choice compared to alternatives, and it will be easily the best choice if they continue this trajectory.

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. In part, I think this is from having a quite large set of features included compared to alternative platforms. However, the team is really responsive to bug fixes and none of the bugs compromise data or use.

Very helpful to my team

Pros

I love Hive so much because this is the perfect tool for me and my team. It's like trello and slack in one! The task cards are easy to navigate. Assigning or tagging people to the tasks is not complicated at all. The forms are being used for our clients' job requests and it works great.

Cons

App and browser - sometimes logging in is hard because it loads really slow. Some of my team members are always complaining that they cannot log in to hive, just seeing plain white background. I hope you can improve that.

Hive is an Powerful Project Management Tool at a Great Price

Hive is awesome. Highly recommended!

Pros

1) Great user interface
2) Desktop and mobile apps
3) Built in chat
4) Recurring tasks
5) Great notification system

Cons

I'm not much of a kanban guy, and that's kind of how it behaves by default. Thankfully, they have a table view too so it's not a problem.

Excellent tool to keep you focus on the task at hand.

Pros

Keeps me organized. I love how there are templates for actions so I never miss a step.

Cons

White font on actions makes it hard to read. Not enough colors for projects.

Transformed our workflow

We have hundreds of projects in a calendar year. Hive allows us to make assignments to team members, consolidate files, and assign start/stop dates so that projects don't get missed. It has been a valuable tool for us.

Pros

Flexibility for just a task or an entire project. Also like the public and private options.

Cons

Sometimes I lose things! But that is probably me needing to use filters more efficiently. 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.

Great Resource for Small Nonprofit!

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.

Productive Tool for Teams

Pros

Hive provides a clear and easy way to create, assign, handle, and complete tasks of most types. It allows sub-actions for tasks that provide a granular approach to complex tasks which allows for easy tracking. I love the fact you can 'drag and drop' attachments right into tasks. We found it very helpful to assign specific sub-actions to certain members on the team.
The message center on the left is great feature to have; allows you to deal with clients as external users.

Cons

I don't like how the message center on the left can't be adjusted to resize the portion used for 'groups' vs. 'direct messages'.
