HiveFlux – Track Projects & Resources

ss-hiveflux
HiveFlux is a real-time task management application that businesses can use to plan and track both individual projects and group resources. The cloud-based platform automatically turns completed task lists into timesheets, providing managers with an easier way to adjust the workloads of overburdened employees.

Create a HiveFlux account for your team, making sure to add your own branding and logos. Within seconds, you’ll be able to search for anything you’re looking for by keyword or topic. Visit your profile page to adjust the settings of your account and let HiveFlux know when you’d prefer receiving alerts and notifications. As you add new “Projects” to the system, HiveFlux tracks the time it takes your employees to complete the various tasks associated with each project. Those completed tasks are then automatically turned into timesheets. The application also provides you with space for estimate how much “effort” certain tasks will take. Important tasks can be marked as “urgent,” and email notifications can be sent out at pre-set intervals to ensure deadlines are never missed.

Among the many useful features that HiveFlux provides are shared appointments, workload balancing, and mini-calendars. “Mini-calendars” show users when they have appointments and how busy they can expect to be on any given day. HiveFlux also provides powerful filters, enabling managers to sort group calendars by project or person.
