New

  • Introducing our free, forever plan. We've received a lot of requests from many of you who are freelancers or part of smaller teams who wished to continue using Nifty while their team is still in the process of expansion. The Free Plan is free forever and you are able to have up to 3 team members, 2 active projects and unlimited guests! Sign up now! https://niftypm.com/pricing.

  • Bringing Nifty to Desktops! We've made significant updates to our desktop apps and they are now available for direct download. Check out our apps page for download options. https://niftypm.com/apps

Improvements

  • Moving towards a Widget based chat. Direct team messaging has been updated to make it easier to multi-task on Nifty. With the updated Chat widget, you can work within discussions, tasks and docs all while discussing it with your team members without having to switch between windows/tabs.

  • We have enabled previews for videos, audio and pdf files. No longer are you required to download these files just to see what's inside. Watch or review these files instantly!

  • Improved UI of Tasks screen for better distinction of individual tasks and task lists. Also added task counts in the header of individual task lists.

Coming soon!

  • Improved task statuses and automation.
  • Integrations with more of your favorite apps

New!

Import your projects from Asana, Basecamp and Trello! Bring in all your projects, team members, tasks, files & more within a few minutes!

Check out our guides in our Help Center to learn more. Alternatively, if you need any help with the transition, schedule a personal demo with us here.

Improvements

  • We have replaced full window chats and refactored the UI to have the Team Chat in your sidebar work in sync with the Team Chat widget. The main reason behind this small change is so that our users can chat with their team members while working on something else on Nifty at the same time.
  • Added progress loaders for Import Tasks and Projects. They also run in the background so users can continue on their work while the import is in progress.
  • Optimized main search for quicker results and included discussion messages and users into the query.

Fixes

  • Fixed issues with File Previews not loading consistently.
  • Fixed a bug where you would be unable to tag users when editing text.
  • Fixed a bug when re-sending invites to users who were removed from a team.

New

  • Continued improvements for better performance and server stability.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where drag and drop file uploads within a Task would duplicate the file.

Introducing Nifty 2.0! You asked, we listened!

This is our biggest and boldest update so far! As usual, we've received a lot of great feedback and suggestions from all of you that made us take a step back and reflect on our current layout. From your feedback we came to realize a major pain point; transitioning between projects needs to be more seamless and the ability to get into any part of any project within the click of a button.

So after countless iterations and some bold decisions, we've come up with the following: Nifty Docs

  • What you'll notice immediately is how we consolidated Projects, Team Chat and some Settings into the fly-out sidebar menu(left) to address the above. Whether you're in Tasks, Milestone or an individual file, you can easily access another project via our new menu.

  • Although Team Chat was moved into the sidebar, you can bring it out as a widget(like before) by clicking the "Turn into a widget" icon.

  • The old Dashboard has been renamed to "Overview" at the top of our new menu for users who still prefer this layout. We are still looking into better ways to show important data such as Milestones within our new menu.

We hope with this redesign, we start breaking down the barrier between project management and team communication in a way that feels intuitive and obvious. So be sure to let us know your thoughts!!

Improvements

  • Today we have deployed a big optimization update of our entire codebase and backend architecture to significantly improve slow load times and overall stability across our mobile and web platforms. Nifty should be performing much faster now and have significantly less issues caused by slow load times.
  • We have implemented a progress bar when uploading and downloading images/files. 🤘
  • Viewing a file/image preview from Discussions, Tasks, Team Chat and Comments no longer makes you reload the page when you return to the previous page.
  • Document preview has been added for Docs so you can see a little more of your documents when viewing them in a list.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where Tasks assigned to Milestones would sometimes not display the Milestone name in Task window.
  • Team members are now allowed to create/edit Milestones. Deleting a Milestone can only be done by a Team owner/admin.
  • Fixed a bug in Docs where copy pasting text would not save the doc.
  • Fixed a bug that didn't allow an image to be added to a Doc.
  • Fixed a bug where "Edit Members" in a project would result in a crash.
