“Alone we can do so little;
together we can do so much.”

–  Helen Keller


Helen Keller is known around the world as a symbol of courage in the face of overwhelming odds, yet she was much more than a symbol.

She was a woman of luminous intelligence, high ambition and great accomplishment who devoted her life to helping others.

Task & Project Management in The Hive

The Hive has extensive organizational features which enhance efficiency at the personal and workgroup levels. Tasks can be defined for oneself or assigned to a colleague, or delegated after being received. Project management features are imbedded in the ‘workgroups’.

Any project can have a dedicated group where all of the files, discussions, and tasks pertaining to that project are stored and accessed only by those users who are relevant to the project. You can even set up client projects in The Hive by creating private workgroups. Time spent on each task within the project can be tracked, and tasks are integrated into the group calendar. Furthermore, projects can be created and shared with Extranet users, so clients or partners can participate fully in them.

Gantt Chart

Tasks and subtasks can be viewed in a Gantt chart with status, responsible person, and chronological relationships. This gives a full picture of the progression of the project at a single glance, and helps identify potential or existing delays. Once a task is created, it can still be modified directly from the table or Gantt chart.

Bumping up a deadline, adding a subtask, and any other change can be made quickly, with automatic notifications going out to all involved.
