We’ve come a long way from sharing in the neighborhood sandlot, or have we? Whether we are 5 or 50, working in groups can be one of the most challenging aspects of our personal and professional lives. Whether you are a veteran team manager or a novice team member, smooth out your workflow with OneHive, now available in the iOS App Store and on Google Play.
OneHive allows all of your team checklists to live in one place—instead of being scattered over various emails, texts, and spreadsheets. Open the app to a simple interface that organizes all of your Hives, or to-do lists. For each checklist, you can assign members to complete and review individual tasks. I especially like how the app is also well-suited for more complicated tasks and larger teams. Has your team or a certain task grown? Not a problem — you can create sub-items for a task, adjust due dates and times, and also attach files for any checklist item. One of the most frustrating aspects of team projects can be the different ways in which your co-workers organize and create documents.
The app also has a library of checklist templates you can choose from or — the option that I personally like — create and share your own template! Along with the templates, my favorite part of the app is the scheduling option: the app allows you to schedule checklists on a daily, weekly, or monthly checklist, which saves you from copy-pasting the same document and action items over and over again. If anyone on your team works in a different office — or on a different schedule — you can adjust the notification settings and track each individual team member’s progress, so you can avoid those awkward email conversations requesting everyone’s status update.
For all of its powerful features, OneHive stands out from other productivity apps for its clean design and intuitive experience. Gone are the days struggling over cumbersome project management software. With OneHive, your team members can start collaborating on action items, even with no prior training. Syncing across your computer and mobile devices, OneHive can elevate the day-to-day operations and long term goals of any organization, large or small.
