This update is intended to improve the experience and performance of Nifty to help you work smarter, not harder. 💪

Enhanced Notification Management

Our new notifications tray allows you to easily sift through updates by filtering for tasks that are assigned to you, comments where you're specifically mentioned, and docs that are shared with you. Additionally, you can mark notifications as unread to come back to them later.

Multi-Workspace Sign In

If you are part of more than one team with different email accounts, you can now bring them under the same roof with our multi-workspace connectivity. Easily join other groups and manage your work more efficiently.

Creating Tasks from Chats

You can now hover over a message in your direct messages widget and easily turn your 1-1 or group conversations into actionable tasks.

Improved Messaging

We've completely refactored our keyboard input across discussions, chats, and comments to help bring down the latency of typing messages to zero.

Performance Optimizations

We've made major under-the-hood changes on how Nifty works so we can continue to scale reliably. Additionally, the movement of real-time data built on a technology called "sockets" has been upgraded, so users who were facing delays in messages and updates should now see them appear promptly.

Additional Improvements & Fixes

  • Project Duplication will now also include custom fields in Milestones.
  • Collapsing or expanding your calendar in My Tasks will now save your preference.
  • Fixed an issue where Recurring Tasks would create duplicates of a task upon recurring.
  • Fixed an error where users would receive notifications on tasks from which they are unsubscribed.
  • Fixed an issue where pasting would not properly insert content in Nifty Docs.

The Nifty you know and love got some cosmetic and functional enhancements to make your everyday workflow management much more enjoyable and actionable. ❤️

Updated My Tasks

My Tasks has been updated to improve organization and actionability. You can now access your Completed tasks as well as view your daily flyout Calendar. Be sure to integrate your Nifty with your Google Calendar to get your daily tasks and events side-by-side!

Additionally, you can now track time on tasks right from your My Tasks by hovering on your tasks and hitting the track button. Similarly, existing tasks with in progress tracking will allow you to continue tracking time without opening the tasks.

New Notification Sound

Nifty's got a new voice that has a little more pep and bubble to it! Let us know your thoughts on the new sound.

Hover Effects

Pieces of Nifty's interface, such column heads, table rows, and module icons, will now highlight on hover to make tracking your actions easier and exciting.

Task Lists Renamed

Task Lists are now referred to as "Statuses" and have a new icon to align with their predominant use case across our user-base. Don't worry if this this new term doesn't quite describe how you use Lists, as there's no functional change to the feature.

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

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.
  • Fixed an issue with timesheets exporting blank documents in PDF.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes and performance improvements.
