Select & move multiple actions in Gantt
new
For users that work heavily in Gantt, we heard your feedback that moving multiple items at once would be most helpful. With this update, our drag-and-drop functionality in Gantt has now been extended to include selection of several actions.
Now, when you user selects multiple actions, you'll be able to:
  • Move all selected actions to the new location
  • Make actions subactions of the card they were dropped into
  • Move all cards to the new project

Track time on behalf of another user
new
With this new update, users will be able to track time on behalf of other users as well as external users. This will be helpful when team members are out of office, working as external contributors, or simply forget to track their own time.
To track time for a teammate, you'll have to be either the
project owner
or a
workspace admin
. Start by clicking "Add time" on the action card, and scroll down to the individual you want to add time for.

Once you've filled out the time submission, their time will be added as it's own line-item on the card.
Note: You will not be able to track time on behalf of an unassigned individual or a team.

Ability to resource % allocation
new
With this resourcing update, we've made it possible to resource your team by percentage instead of hours only. Teams have let us know that resourcing based on percentage allocation helps alleviate some of the stress that comes with strict time-tracking, and can help with overall flexibility.
To address that feedback, when you go to assign a resource, you'll now be able to choose from the following allocation types:
  • Percentage
  • Hours per day
  • Total hours
  • Days

Note: You'll only be able to assign work up to 100% allocation.

Multi-select in forms dropdown
new
With this latest forms update, users will now have the ability to multi-select items in any dropdown questions. This is helpful for teams that want to pass along multi-pronged answers via one question instead of creating separate questions or forms for different answers.
To make a form dropdown multi-select, add a "Dropdown" question to your form, and click on the "Edit" button on the top right corner of the question. From there, you'll be able to modify the question's settings and check off the multi-select button.

Add agile estimates to action cards
new
We know you've been waiting for this one! As of today, we've added the ability to include agile estimates in Fibonacci format on all action cards.
This functionality will act as an App in Hive, so to enable it, you'll need to visit your Hive App section and turn it on. Once Agile has been enabled, you'll see an App section in each action card where you can assign the action points.

Show all levels of subactions in Kanban
new
If you've got a parent action with several subactions, it is helpful to see the full set of subactions in Kanban view. This helps teams visualize progress of a
whole action
as opposed to just the parent and one subaction.
To enable this feature, visit your project settings, and select the Kanban view preferences you'd like. This can be edited on a per-project basis.

Recurring actions time enhancements
new
We've now made it easier to specify when exactly a recurring action will be scheduled for. The new dropdown will allow users to quickly specify the following:
  • Action reoccurs weekly on date of assignment
  • Action reoccurs monthly at same time of assignment
  • Action reoccurs yearly at same time of assignment

Additionally, you'll still have access to the customization modal that Hive has always had by clicking "Custom." Note: One addition we've made to the Custom modal is the ability to schedule recurring actions on a specific day.

Dynamic user fields in Forms
new
Forms are a much-loved part of Hive (we use them all the time at Hive HQ), and we heard from internal and external users that making a user selection dynamic in forms would streamline workflow.
With that feedback, we made an addition to the dynamic fields in forms -- users will now be able to add users as a dynamic field.
This means that you can set specific users to populate in the form based on the logic from other questions and fields. For example, if one field is a dropdown indicating Team responsible, and you select "Marketing," then only the Marketing team members will be available to choose from in the User field.

This will decrease manual work for organizations and allocate proper resources automatically.

Right click to add time in My Actions
new
With one of many upcoming My Actions updates, we're enabling users to right click to add time to actions in My Actions view.
It's as easy as right clicking on a task and selecting "Add Time" from the dropdown.
Screen Shot 2021-12-08 at 6
From there, you'll be taken to the time-tracking modal, where you can add your time.
Bonus: We've also added this feature in Table View!

Bolded custom fields
new
With this update, we've bolded the custom field names in action cards to help teams easily navigate through the card and identify these special fields.

This small functionality change will make it easier to scan through action cards and hone in on the necessary custom fields for each project.
