'Tis the season for more product updates! Usability comes front and center in this update, starting with improving our Overview. πŸŽ…

Introducing Project Timeline View

Projects in our Overview screen now reflect the aggregate progress of all milestones within the project. This allows for more visibility across projects at once, while still allowing you to expand these projects into granular milestone and task levels on the Gantt view.

Custom Project Views

Configure your project's modules quickly with the three-dot menu at the top of a project to quickly turn on and off core modules of your projects. This is only available to workspace owner and the project owner/creator as the modules will be enabled/disabled for all project members. `

Improved Project Templates and Duplication

Task Start and End dates are now preserved in Project Templates and Duplication. In Duplication, these dates are the same as the original project. In Templates, these dates are relative to the distance of the project's creation date. Additional updates include over 200% performance improvement along with the added preservation of task and milestone dependencies and milestone descriptions.

Document Access Automation

Attaching a document to a task will automatically give assignees of that task access to the doc - no longer a 2-step process!

Enhanced Task Sorting

Tasks can now be sorted all fields including your very own custom fields on our list view of your task board for improved management and prioritization of your work.

Additional Bug Fixes & Improvements

  • Improved notifications for Zoom calls started without a message will now automatically move up to the top of your sidebar chat list.
  • Added support for creating back to back tasks in milestone modals with enter key.
  • Added support for HTML and Link Embedding in Nifty Docs.
  • Fixed an issue where comments of completed subtasks were not accessible.
