Reviewing multiple versions of the same proof is now easier than ever before. With this update, you'll be able to quickly navigate between versions and compare differences.
With our last update to proofing, we enabled side-by-side viewing of proofs. To access this feature, simply upload both versions of your proof, and click the "+" sign on the top right corner in the proofing tool. Then, select the version you'd like to compare from the dropdown.
With our latest update, once you've split your screen to show both versions of the proof, you can also sync the scroll in and out of both by clicking the "Sync scroll" button, which will appear in the upper right.
You'll now be able to scroll and Zoom in and out of multiple proof versions with ease!
If you've accidentally added, expanded, or altered something in Gantt view that you'd like to undo, you'll now be able to with one click. This will make it easy to recover your Gantt view without making dozens of manual changes.
The undo button will work on the following:
- Date changes
- The addition, removal, or changing of dependencies
- Parent action changes
- Adding actions
To quickly undo an action, press the "Undo" button in the bottom right hand corner of your screen in Gantt view.
Additionally, if you need more visibility into a longer list of actions, you'll now be able to Expand the Gantt view. Simply click the Expand button in the bottom corner, and Hive will fill your screen.
Note: Undo only stores that last 10 changes that have been made, and if you navigate away from Gantt, the undo backlog will be cleared.
Thank you to our friends at Coola, Xenopsi, Wash U, and ERMC for requesting this feature.
With this new update, you'll be able to automatically expand your Table View to show both parent and subactions without having to manually expand each parent action.
This will make it easier to understand your project's tasks from a macro-level, and save time for anyone that needs to quickly summarize pending actions.
To expand all in Table View, simply click the + sign to the left of the "Title" column. Your subactions will now automatically be visible throughout your Table View. To minimize subactions and nest them back under their parent action, click the "-" sign.
If your workflow is based around action card due dates, this update will be incredibly helpful. You'll now be able to sort actions by project due dates in Portfolio View, making it easier to understand overall timing of tasks and prioritize actions.
Simply select the arrow at the top right of each action to sort chronologically. The rows will then reorganize in the order you've selected!
Thank you to our friends at EA, Berkeley, Purefood, and Hiebing for requesting this feature.
We've totally revamped our video proofing functionality for a more intuitive proofing process. For video proofing and approvals, you'll now have extensive options and a more streamlined experience.
In video proofing, you can now:
- Add a note, free text, or a callout
- Approve, reject, cancel, or complete comments attached to a specific time stamp
- Sort comments by timecode, position, time, status, author, or type
- Insert standard and custom stamps
- Search comments
Additionally, external approvers will now be able to sign off on a video proof. Invite them to approve the proof by adding their email in the "add external approver" section.
Note: If you've previously uploaded a video proof in our old editing format, simply re-upload to access the updated proofing process.
With these updates, you'll now be able to add hours quickly, and easily view time or estimates on the card itself (no dropdowns required).
To add time, click on the time tracking segment of your action card, and click "Add time." From there, you'll be taken to this simple modal where you can quickly designate time spent in half hour increments, or manually type in your time.
Once you've added your time, it will appear in the time tracking box on the action card.

We've streamlined the process of adding external users into your projects. Now you'll be able to add an external user directly from the edit Project modal instead of navigating to Project Home.
To add an external user, visit the three more dots on the upper right hand side and click "Edit project." From there, select the pencil icon next to "Members" and start typing in the email of the external user you'd like to add.
You'll see a dropdown that automatically allows you to add that user as an external user, and you can also designate them as Full Access users or Read Only.
Additionally, you'll also be able to add users as a new member.
Note: if you've set your workspace up so that only admins can add new members, only they will have this option.
You can now create new labels for your tasks without having to visit a separate modal outside of the action card. Simply press the blue + sign to the right of the "Label" section on your action card, and enter the name of the label you'd like to create.
If this label doesn't already exist, you'll be able to quick-create the label.
From there, you'll be asked to choose a color for your label without leaving the card!
We created Hive Notes for Meetings to help you run successful meetings with straightforward next steps and clear deliverables.
With Hive Notes for Meetings, you can connect your calendar meeting to a note in Hive. From there, you can use the Note before, during, and after the meeting to jot down thoughts, an agenda, or assign next steps. It can actually transition into a list of actionable next-steps assigned to meeting participants.
Here's how it works:
You'll connect your email provider to Hive via Hive Mail in your Apps section. Once that's enabled, you will have the ability to link a Hive Note to any meeting you've got on your calendar.
Additionally, to make sure you never miss a meeting again, you'll get a notification in Hive prompting you to either take notes or join the meeting 5 minutes before the meeting starts.

With this new feature, you'll receive a pop-up if you try to schedule an action due during someone's time off in resourcing. This will help ensure that work is only assigned to people when they're in office.
This notice will pop-up in the bottom right corner of your screen to alert you to the scheduling conflict once you've assigned the action:
To schedule an out of office, visit Resourcing and locate the the person you'd like to schedule the out of office for. Then, drag your cursor across the day that you'd like to schedule it for. From there, toggle the pop-up to "Out of office" and select your date and time.
Thank you to Barefoot Proximity, Nerd Wallet, and University of Tennessee for upvoting this feature!
