Nifty is putting more control into your own hands when it comes to security and resource control with this update. πŸ™Œ

Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

All of our plans now have access to Two Factor Authentication which adds more security to your account by involving your mobile device in the log in process.

We recommend that you take advantage of this additional security layer to make sure that your account is as secure as can be. It's quick and simple! Follow these directions to set up 2FA on your account.

User Tag Filter in Workloads

Filter the members of your organization by User Tags in Workloads to quickly sift through different internal roles, teams, employee locations, and more! Bring additional context to your resource analysis by focusing on relevant clusters of teammates.

Additional Improvements & Fixes

  • ​Revised Guest permissions so that they are no longer permitted to delete tasks that they did not create.
  • Our search loads quicker and no longer reveals blank bars. Fixed a bug where Files would hide from search.
  • Improved notification latency to narrow the gap between the trigger and receiving the update.
  • Fixed a bug where copy / pasting would add div tags to text sometimes.
  • Improved performance and memory tweaks.

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

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.
