We want Hive to be your one-stop source for all things work related. Navigating your workspace is now an easier and more intuitive process with our Workspace Settings revamp.
With this month's settings updates, you'll be able to better understand your default settings, general settings (like your team's work week), and easily access the apps you have enabled.
On a macro-level, we've added three new headers to the main settings page. Here's what each one will contain:
- Workspace name and workspace logo
- Working week
- Holiday scheduler
- Information on third party integrations
- Custom fields settings
- Misc settings section that includes "Show projects IDs" and "Lock user custom tags"
Project Default Settings:
- Check on or off whether actions can be assigned on weekends
- Check on or off ability to show actions in Kanban view
- Ability to auto-add teams to projects
- Turn on or off Gantt auto scheduling
- Settings for moving approvals to next stage
- Each app in use will be shown
- Link to quick-manage apps
- Proofing and approvals settings
- Custom emoji and messaging settings
- Ability to change logo that appears on each Hive Form (this will be different from your Workspace logo as the Form has a white background)
With this new update, users will be able to easily access archived, or completed, projects as read-only. This means that all files attached to the completed projects will be easily accessible, and users can see the project's contents without un-archiving.
To access archived projects, visit Project Navigator and travel to "Archived." From there, you'll be able to select any Archived project and view it in Read-only mode, which will insert a yellow banner at the top of the project.
You will not be able to edit any action cards, but you will be able to:
- Change the project layout
- Filter actions
- Export files
Thank you to our customers at Hiebing, MFA and Purefood for voting on and requesting this feature!
Want teammates to be notified when you're OOO? You'll now be able to set an "Out of office" via your chat status that will alert teammates to your absence when they assign you an action.
To access this setting, visit your profile picture dropdown and select "Status." From there, click on the "Out of office" option.
Once you select this option, you'll be able to input the last day you'll be OOO.
In Hive chat, you'll have the Out of Office emoji next to your name, and if someone tries to assign you an action, they will receive an OOO notification.
If you're collaborating with users who are read-only in your project, they'll now be able to access proofing and approvals. This is ideal for teams who want to limit project access to simple proofing.
To enable proofing and approvals for read-only users, visit Workspace settings and travel to "Project level permissions." Then, toggle on the "Allow all read-only users" portion.
Once enabled, read-only users will be able to:
- Create a new proofing round
- Approve a round
- Edit approval rounds
- Request approvals
- Upload a proof
Simple ID is now available in Table View! With this new addition, you'll be able to add Simple ID to any Table View by selecting "Simple ID" from the "Show Columns" section accessible via the three "More dots" next to each column header.
Once you click on those "More dots," you can select which fields you'd like included in your Table View.
Check "Simple ID" to add your action card ID to Table View. Additionally, this column will be read-only and you'll be able to export this column in CSV or Excel format.
Quickly understand your access level to projects and tasks with our new read-only banners on mobile. If you have read-only access to the project, you'll see a "Read Only" banner and the project fields will be greyed out.

Communicate in real-time with team members in your Notes without missing a beat. To add a comment to a Note, click on the text bubble on the upper right hand corner of the Note.
In the comment, you can add copy, tag teammates, and add emojis 😃🤩👻
The person you tag will be notified of the tag, and can reply to the comment with a few clicks.
If you need to change your comment, you can easily edit it or delete the comment by pressing the three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
With our latest mobile updates, you'll be able to easily access your pinned projects and views at the very top of your project list. This will make it easier than ever to quickly navigate to your most important projects and tasks.
To access your pinned projects, simply click on the "Project" icon on the Botton right of your mobile app.
Don't know where to start with a Hive Note? We've got you covered. You can now select one of our six Notes templates from the three "More" dots in the upper right hand corner.
Each template will auto-populate text to guide your through your meeting and assist you in the note-taking process.
Here's a quick look at what one of our post popular templates looks like before you add your own copy.
To make the Note your own, simply add in content in the designated areas. Since Notes are collaborative, your team members can also add information simultaneously as well as next steps.
Here's what a built out Note could look like:
You'll never have to leave Hive to attend a meeting again, and your entire calendar will be at your fingertips.
With our new My Day functionality, you'll have access to your Google or Outlook calendar in Hive itself.
When you click on the calendar button on the top right, your day's events will populate below. To view upcoming meetings on future days, use the arrows to navigate through the calendar. If you're viewing a day in the future and want to return to today's calendar, simply press "Today."
When you click into the meeting block, the meeting's Zoom window will automatically open.
To enable My Day, you need to connect your Hive Mail. To connect with Hive Mail, visit Hive Apps and toggle that option on. For step-by-step instructions, click here.
