"The Only Project Management Software with the Features I need"

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.

"The project management product we were looking for"

Pros: We looked at and tested several project management options and had used several in the past. Hive was never on our radar and unfortunately isn't as well known, but we discovered it through the WeWork employee portal and gave it a try. The set up was simple, it offered flexibility in terms of how you view and sort projects. It also allowed us to add external users without paying for a seat. This was extremely important because we want our clients to have access to our project boards, but we don't need full functionality for them. While it wasn't available when we first started using it, the addition of time tracking was a huge bonus for us as an agency, and Hive continues to impress us by adding additional features and functionality. When it comes to support, they are extremely responsive and in the rare times we have had to utilize support, issues have been resolved to satusfaction.

Cons: I wish there was a native integration with HubSpot, but we're able to get around that with Zapier.

"Robust project manager for business"

Comments: Hive is a great tool that makes it easy to build growing businesses.

Pros: I like the simple and fresh layout.
Flexible and easily accessible, I like to switch through different operating systems and still be able to use Hive.
It makes it effortless to start new projects and keeps track of ongoing ones.
I can divide the project into phases, set a time frame, and assign team members.
I can give different labels and colors for project phases to monitor project progression.
Finally, being connected to the team members is a strong feature in Hive.

Cons: Setting it up for the first time requires some experience, not easy for newcomers. I think tutorials will be helpful.
The Mobile version limits the functionality of Hive. Other than that, it is all good.

"Close But Not Quite"

Comments: 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.

"Nice IU, has awesome apps as add ons."

Comments: Great tool, Awesome User interface, wide variety of features. HIVE must try to include individual based pricing for organizations as each user requirements differ in a diverse organization and HIVE could end up losing in this competitive field. HIVE should come up with AI based tools to assist along with its existing project management framework.

Pros: Great user interface. Ease of use, can get started easily, lots of features and add on apps. Add action cards to project via email and assign users to the action card.

Cons: Too expensive. We need to pay the same price for all users, the price of the version with the most apps and features- even if many users may not use those features. That there is no AI based offering, a smart AI based offering that could read the emails and automatically create projects/action cards and assign users to the action cards/projects. We have to manually do that, I think HIVE has the capability to evolve to this point.
