A small update to Hiveminder this morning by Thomas Sibley on 2011-01-28 12:24:24 (permalink)

I mentioned earlier this week that we had a few features tucked away. The smallest one was an option to never send task email to group members, and it's now live on the site. It's a simple toggle on the group management tab that's been asked for multiple times in the past.

This morning's pull live also brought a fix for the Follow Me button on the Tasks by Twitter setup. If you continue to experience problems with it, drop us a line using the feedback box.

State of the Hive by Thomas Sibley on 2011-01-25 22:03:37 (permalink)

Hiveminder's been running for a little while now without many updates. We're a relatively small shop, so we end up spending cycles on each of our products in turn. Right now we're working hard toward the release of RT 4.0, the next major version of our Enterprise product. Once that's sorted, you'll likely see increased activity on Hiveminder. We have a few features tucked away waiting to be polished.

To keep up to date with what we're doing, follow @Hiveminder and @bestpractical on Twitter. As always, if you have questions or comments feel free to drop them in the feedback box.

Bon Voyage, IE6 by Jesse Vincent on 2010-03-23 16:38:56 (permalink)

Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 has reached the end of a very long life. At this point, it's not much loved by....well, just about anyone except corporate IT departments with legacy applications that won't run with anything current.

Hiveminder's (admittedly less than perfect) support for IE6 ends on April 21 2010. If you're currently using IE6 to access Hiveminder, we'd recommend Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as a modern alternative. These newer browsers are speedier, prettier and more compatible with the modern web.

Mobile UI touchups by Jesse Vincent on 2010-01-29 16:43:19 (permalink)

We've just pushed an updated mobile UI for Hiveminder. It should be just a bit prettier and easier to navigate, though the only new feature is the ability to show an entire tasklist on one page

Performance by Jesse Vincent on 2010-01-28 22:34:37 (permalink)

We've made a little bit of a change to some of Hiveminder's core infrastructure. We're hopeful that this change will fix some of the performance issues folks have been seeing over the past months. If you notice that things are significantly better (or that they're not), please drop us a line via the feedback box.

UI changes by Shawn M Moore on 2010-01-12 19:10:58 (permalink)

We're rolling out some interface changes. Many of these changes were driven (directly or indirectly) by performance enhancements. For example, we've cut the HTML size of a 20-item tasklist in half. This results in improved service for everyone.

We're certainly aware that most UI changes can be contentious. Please feel free to send us feedback about what you dislike. If you very much like any change, we'd also appreciate it if you let us know. And, as always, suggestions for improvement are welcome. That's why we have a feedback box on every page after all. :)

Use Hiveminder on your iPhone with iMinder by Shawn M Moore on 2009-06-03 18:33:17 (permalink)

One of our users, Kris Arnold, has published a (free!) iPhone app, iMinder, for interacting with Hiveminder. Now using Hiveminder offline is even easier. It has a slick interface and keeps your task list synced. It's available on the App Store.

Here's what you see when you start iMinder:

You can edit tasks very easily:

Task bar now at the top by Shawn M Moore on 2009-05-18 18:31:05 (permalink)

You may have noticed that in our standard web interface, the "new task" bar now greets you at the top of the page. We feel this is an important usability improvement. Having to scroll down to the bottom of the page to add new tasks was annoying enough that people were less likely to do it for tiny tasks, making Hiveminder a little less useful.

We have some design ideas that this change enables, but we want to start small. Please give us your feedback about whether you like this change or not, and how we can make it work even better for you.

This evening there was a small glitch in the web interface, but that should be fixed now. Sorry about that!

Calendars that start on Monday by Shawn M Moore on 2009-03-19 12:37:56 (permalink)

Many of our international users have requested that we allow calendars, which pop up when you edit a starts or due date, to start on Monday instead of Sunday. You can now enable this by going to your preferences (under the Tools menu) and checking off the box next to "Calendar starts on Monday?"

Google Talk IM outage by Alex Vandiver on 2009-01-30 16:57:19 (permalink)

If you're using Google Talk to chat with hmtasks on jabber, you may have had problems over the past couple days. Google's IM servers had gotten overzealously picky, and it took us a bit to adapt our servers to cope. You may need to log out of your IM client, and back in again, in order for hmtasks@hiveminder.com to show up on your buddy list.
