This update brings more power, flexibility, and automation to your Nifty workflows along with performance enhancements and bug fixes. 🚀

Automations V2

Nifty automations have received a UI facelift, but more importantly, you can now set multiple actions and versions of an automation within a project. Now every Status can add a tag, create or extend a deadline — without any limitations.

Manual Time Tracking

You can easily log manual time entries for tasks now by simply opening a task or project time logs and selecting Add Manual Time. These entries can then be found in the project time logs with manual timestamps.

Enhanced Project & Task Embeds

Embeds just got a whole lot easier to use; you're no longer require to remove the embed URL from the embed link! Now you can simply paste the embed code in its entirety and we'll take care of the rest.

Product Improvements & Bug Fixes:

  • Project templates & duplications will now have the option to include automations, custom project embeds, task embeds, and folders
  • @everyone and @here tags have been added as an option for @mentions
  • Year and Month now have a dropdown option added in our date picker
  • Users can now drag-scroll to navigate the Nifty interface horizontally
  • Project avatars can now be uploaded by simply clicking on the avatar in the project header
  • Imported projects are now Private by default
  • Group by: Milestones is disabled when the Milestones module is disabled
