Overall Satisfaction with Hive

We use Hive across the whole organization to manage all our different projects by navigating through its different task cards and see all the time limits so that projects don't get missed. We like the in-app chat very much and the app itself is very intuitive and very easy to use.
  • Very good design.
  • Google Drive and Dropbox integration.
  • Very easy to use. It does a great job with project organization.
  • You can't move urgent actions to the top.
  • It takes a little too much time to load up on the desktop version.
  • There's definitely room for improvement in keyboard shortcuts.
  • Productivity improvement when some of your teammates are spread across the country.
  • Has saved us a ton of time due to how easy it has become to find the project you're looking for.
  • Tagging people to certain tasks lets you keep track of each others responsibilities.
I love Hive so much because it has made a huge difference regarding team communication and project management at the same time. We experienced almost no bugs and in the few cases that we did have some trouble, the customer service team was very responsive and solved our problems very quickly.
We really had very little contact with the customer service team, because we only had a couple of different instances with bugs. In both cases, the team answered very quickly and solved our problems showing a great deal of expertise not only regarding our specific software situation but also were very kind.
We used Microsoft Project for a very long time and, while we still consider it superior to Hive, it lacks a lot of Hive's features. Maybe it also can be one of its cons, because all of those features can increase bugs and load times. But Hive is a relatively new platform and I'm sure they'll overcome that as long as they keep on this trail.
Hive is very well suited for those looking for a team communication app that has Kanban board support and you don't want to use two different apps for project management and communication. It fails a little bit when some of your team members or bosses don't have much time to read all emails, so we still haven't found a way for them to get only important notification emails.
