    The Only Project Management Software with the Features I need

    Reviewed on 27/08/2019

    Pros

    Hive is the only project management software that is cloud collaborative, has infinite sub tasks, and Gantt charts so it was an easy choice. Also it is not Microsoft Project so I don't have to deal with their insane billing methods.

    Chatting inside tasks or letting task owners turn sub tasks into their own projects is great. Everyone can keep up with who is working on what and who needs help or what is holding up the project. Sign in and billing is super easy.

    Support is extremely reactive when I have questions. There is a bunch of stats on task completion that I don't use, but look useful.

    Cons

    The mobile app has significantly reduced functionality compared to desktop.

    Hive has made communication between our company's team easy. Now, we don't have to constantly call each other, have follow-up meetings, and walk into each other's offices. We can simply log into Hive and see who is doing what. We know when things are due and what needs to be done next. Because of Hive communication is easy so we can focus on getting jobs done for clients and getting them done on time.

    Pros

    Hive is ridiculously user friendly. I like most how our team can collaborate on different tasks and we all know who is doing what and when. We also know when everything is due and what is to be done next. It makes communication and completing tasks practically effortless. Now we can focus less on the lists and to-do's because of Hive; now, we have more time to focus on actually completing the tasks themselves. Because of Hive, we can get jobs completed for customers on time. I also really like the time clock feature, where we can log our hours for different tasks and clients. Plus, anytime I have questions or troubles, the Hive customer support team is right there, ready to help. I can't rave about Hive enough.

    Cons

    I honestly have nothing that I least like about this software. It's an amazing product that myself and our company uses every day.

    Timely response to chat logs. It would be a great product if the e-mail integration actually added value to ones workflow.

    Pros

    Intuitive, easy to navigate. Many useful features you would expect with a project collaboration tool.

    Cons

    Gmail attachments make into to the HIVE e-mail interface only about half of the time. Of those that do make it into HIVE about 65% must be downloaded rather than simply read. Hive will read a g.doc via Drive but all other attachments must be downloaded. If you create an action from the Hive e-mail and want to work on the documents that are attached, you would have to download and reattach the the documents to the action card. That renders HIVE e-mail integration about useless if you get a lot of e-mails with attachments. For me Hive is a no go for that reason. But, also because only half of the attachments even make into Hive to begin with.

    Pros

    We are a small digital marketing firm. We had tried other programs, but Hive had the best package of support, collaboration and work flow!

    Cons

    Time tracking needs some work, but that is eclipsed by the wonders of version control and mark up of assets prior to approval.

    I have been able to create and implement my goals and achieve my deadlines successfully.

    Pros

    I'm a self-employed individual user. I found Hive in a search for a software that could be easily used by individual to manage deadlines, projects, and future goal planning all on one platform, with interweaving timeline features. Most softwares don't accommodate individual users, but Hive does!

    Cons

    No, Hive is very easy to use and has helped me organize my business very well.
