Happy New Year everybody! With the New Year, comes more awesome updates!

New

  • Threaded Messages have been added to your Project Discussion channels. Reply back to specific messages by hovering over the line and clicking the chat icon to the right. Open up past threads by clicking on the "Replies" underneath.
  • Assign your sub-tasks! Assign individual sub-tasks to multiple team members for more detailed and accurate planning.

Improvements

  • Discussion channels are now displayed in your main sidebar for better visibility and easier navigation between your project discussions.
  • Updated global search to include all discussion messaging and to anchor to searched text.
  • Optimized Project Imports to run in the background and also added checks for project invite emails.

Improvements

  • Detailed View for Nifty Roadmap - Initially, the detailed view for project milestones was only viewable from your Project Overview page, but we have added it to Roadmap for better ease of use. Now you will be able to switch between the detailed and milestone views directly from inside your projects.
  • Trash Icon for custom project templates - Remove outdated or unnecessary custom templates directly from the template selection page.
  • Improved UI for milestone dependency arrows - Refactored how the arrows for milestone dependencies are displayed. Certain use cases would cause issues and arrows would not point to where it was intended.
  • Updates for Discussion and Team Chat Messages - In-line message notifications have been updated to show when messages have been edited or deleted.
  • Saving your last session - The next time you log on, you will be brought directly to the last page you were on.

New

  • Project Templates - Every team's workflow is different, which is why you will now be able to save existing projects as templates for future ones. Copy over your task lists and milestone structure for faster implementations for new projects! You can also choose from five pre-built templates: Design, Marketing, Agile Development, Scrum Development, and Product to get a head start on setting up.

Have feedback on these templates or ideas for future ones? Let us know!

  • Milestone Dependencies - Not sure if you can start on the next milestone? No worries, we have added the ability to make milestones more actionable. By making one milestone dependent on another, all tasks assigned to the dependent milestone will be locked out until all tasks within the initial milestone are marked complete by the team.

  • Invite Links for Teams - We've added Invitation links to your team settings page for quick onboarding of your team. Simply click "Generate Link" for Team Members/Admins and share the link with them!

November 27, 2018

We've revamped our collaborative docs tool to facilitate better collaboration and organization! Additionally, we've added some other features and made some tweaks to improve your daily use!

New

  • Doc Tables, Code snippets, and Exporting! Bring order to your information with our customized tables in Docs. Inserting tables is as simple as clicking a button! Docs now are able to preserve code snippets and keep your code intact as well as the ability to Export/Download your Documents as a PDF or Word file!

  • Project Duplication: Jump start new projects by duplicating current ones! The new duplicate project function allows you to make an identical copy of any active project so you don't have to repeat any steps and re-invite members for new projects.

Improvements

  • Improved Task Usability Now you don't have to click into a task to assign a user, tie to a milestone, set a deadline or archive. Hover over any task and you'll notice a quick action menu appear at the top right of the task.

  • We have added a Description field to Milestones for better context and transparency across your teams. It's always better when everyone is on the same page. ​

  • As our Nifty community continues to grow, naturally our infrastructure needed to scale with the growth and we have made big performance updates to make load times much quicker. This is something we will continuously work on to make your Nifty experience as smooth as possible!

New

  • Complete your tasks with a quick click of a button! Upon opening a task, you will notice a "Checkmark" in the Task action menu. Simply click that on any open task and it will automatically be sent to your Completed task list. If you'd like to change your default Completed task list, you can change that by clicking the lightning button next to Filter Tasks.

  • You can also quickly move tasks to different task lists as well! Next to the Complete button, you will see the "Move" button. Simply click Move and select the task list you want to move this task into. Ta-da!

  • We have made new integrations with Google Drive and Dropbox! Quickly upload files from your Gdrive/Dropbox folders into Nifty in Discussions, Team Chat, Tasks and Files. (Export to Gdrive and Dropbox coming soon!)

Improvements

  • We've made a big adjustment to how we display milestone progression in Roadmap! Milestone progression will now be based on tasks (tied to milestones) that are completed rather than by date. For example: If the end date for a milestone is past-due, but there is still a task pending, the milestone will be shown in red to reflect 'Overdue'.

Fixes

  • Squashed bugs that were causing issues with loading Docs.
  • Fixed an issue where file previews would sometimes not close.

Coming soon!

  • Integrations with more of your favorite apps

October 16, 2018

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

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

  • Nifty has integrated with Giphy! Enjoy your conversations with your favorite gifs within Discussions and Team Chats!

Improvements

  • We have made updates to side scrolling within Tasks. Previously, it was a bit difficult to move tasks from one list to another if there were 5+ active Task Lists, but now you are able to move tasks around freely.
  • Slightly reduced the width of Tasks Lists by about 10% for a better experience.
  • 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.
