The Only Project Management Software with the Features I need

5.0 5 years ago

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.

Alternatives Considered: Smartsheet

Reasons for Choosing Hive: Hive is even more user-friendly, easier to use as a forum for communication and a great price too.

Switched From: Smartsheet

Reasons for Switching to Hive: Hive was the only option with the collaborative features and task organization that I wanted.

Hive improves collaboration and project management

4.0 6 months ago

Comments: The platform has transformed the way my team collaborates and manages projects. The intuitive interface, coupled with powerful project planning features, has significantly improved our efficiency and productivity.

Pros:

Hive has become an indispensable tool in my daily workflow, and its best feature, in my opinion, is the seamless integration of project management and collaboration tools. The ability to centralize communication, task management, and file sharing in one platform has significantly enhanced team collaboration and efficiency.

Cons:

The mobile app experience could use some improvement. The app is functional, but it lacks some of the features available in the desktop version. Enhancing the mobile app's capabilities would be beneficial for users who need to manage tasks and collaborate while on the go.

Good Software for small teams

3.0 last year

Comments: It was an easy to use software, but we needed more functionality.

Pros:

It was easy to use and implement and roll out in our small business.

Cons:

Unfortunately, the software was very slow at times and some of my employees reported very long waiting times. One of my employees was not able to use it on Linux PC.

Alternatives Considered: Asana

Reasons for Choosing Hive: We couldn't get used to Asana.

Switched From: Asana

Reasons for Switching to Hive: Hive seemed easier to use. Due to the collaboration and server delay issues, we switched to another product (Clickup).

The best project management software

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: I think Hive is a great project management tool that offers many features and benefits for users.

Cons:

The task dependencies feature is not available or not working properly. Users cannot create dependent tasks or link tasks to each other.

Reasons for Switching to Hive: I had to check all options available in task management tools online
