Sound notification for meeting event
With this update, we've added the ability to set a sound notification when a meeting alert pops up in your Hive app.
For users that have connected their calendar to Hive, you're familiar with the alerts that pop up in-app when a meeting is about to begin. This update will allow teams to customize their notifications to receive a sound notification to alert them to the meeting. This will help if users are working in another window and don't see the in-app notification.

Filter by custom fields in project navigator
With this new feature, users will be able to filter projects in project navigator by the specific custom fields that each project uses. This will allow teams to quickly view which projects in their workspace utilize specific custom fields, without having to individually scroll through each project.
Once users are at the Project Navigator, there will now be a filter icon next to each custom field. For text custom fields, users can filter by text, and for date fields, users will be able to choose dates, etc.

Spellcheck for comments and description boxes
By popular demand, we've released a spell check functionality in Action card comments and description boxes. This will help teams ensure that their feedback and comms are error free and easy to understand.
This will work like any standard spell check, and recommend spelling changes when an error is suspected.

Custom action status colors 🟢
With this update, we've added the ability to color-code your action statuses. This will help users and teams quickly see how a series of actions are progressing at a quick glance!
When adding a new action status, there will now be a dropdown allowing users to select a 'Status Color' in the new status modal.
Screen Shot 2022-11-02 at 8
Users will also be able to edit existing statuses by adding a color, as existing statuses will be assigned the following colors by default:
  • Unstarted = Gray
  • In progress = Yellow
  • Completed = Green
Custom statuses will not have any color associated by default. Once statuses have been assigned a color, or left blank, they will appear color-coded in Table View for all team members.

Archive child projects under parents
With this update, child projects will now archive nested underneath parent projects when they are archived together. Previously, when child projects were archived, they would be listed independently from parents, which made it difficult to track nested projects when they were archived or unarchived.
Now, all nested projects will be neatly sorted once archived! Please note that if parent and child projects are archived individually (at different times), they will be un-nested.

Project duration in Gantt view
With this update, we have added a project duration column to Gantt view. This will allow team members to understand the total project duration, without having to calculate this figure manually - which can be extremely complicated when accounting for only specific weekdays.

: This duration value is calculated based on the start date of the first action in the project, the due date of the last action in the project, and the number of working days between those days.
Filter by placeholder in search bar
With this update to our search bar, we have added the ability to filter by
. Placeholders and teams are helpful for assigning tasks or booking resources when there isn't one specific individual responsible for the task.
Searching for those placeholder and team tasks is now easier with the addition of this filter!

To access this new filter, visit your search bar, and access the 'Filter by assignee' section. There, you'll now see "Placeholders" and "Teams" as a selection.
