Hygger’s 2019 Year in Review
The year-end is about a week away! Time to start thinking about the year review, right?)
What an amazing year it has been for Hygger.io! From the bold goals and perspectives to launching new great features, fulfilling our knowledge base and, of course, welcoming our new customers.
We have tried to make Hygger your best all-in-one platform for everything related to project management.
So, to close out the year, we thought you might like to look back and reminisce about our achievements of 2019. Let’s take a look back at some of the essential news and updates.
Our main innovation was related to introducing six powerful Prioritization Frameworks.
Focusing on the most important work is one of the crucial skills for any type of manager. Using priority matrices and framework you will be able to easily define the more and less profitable tasks, and thus optimize your working process according to them.
Now you can try six prioritization models of different complexity level for various needs:
- Eisenhower matrix
- Value vs Effort matrix
- Value vs Risk technique
- ICE scoring model
- RICE score
- Weighted Scoring
The first three matrices can be customized according to your requirements.
Another new cool feature implemented was Quick Filters on Search Bar.
With the implementation of this feature, you can use the additional filters on the Search Bar: To Do, In Progress, Due Dates and Completed. These filters assist in determining which of your tasks on which boards should be done, which are In Progress and for how long.
Timeline dependencies were also introduced. Timelines are represented with the help of Gantt Charts in Hygger. The board allows creating a project plan that meets the deadlines and visually separate tasks from each other, using different options from Groups to Colors of the horizontal taskbar.
In 2019, Hygger had offered the integration with Intercom. Users need Intercom to collect all customers’ feedback and feature requests. All they need is just to open the Company Settings and choose Integrations. Intercom will be on the top of the list.
In a Spring update, Hygger introduces a feature that allows everybody in a team to create a board that won’t be assigned to any project or collection. It’s about Personal Boards that can be used for any specific needs, including personal tasks, meeting notes, etc.
List Board is another helpful feature that was added. From that moment, Hygger proposes 4 types of board: Kanban, Sprint, Timeline, and List. The list provides you with an overview of all tasks that are connected to a certain group.
Many teams have stakeholders who demand to provide a full report of the working process. Now there is a new role in Hygger – a Guest role. A guest user is a non-paid one and they can see and open tasks, comment, add attachments, subscribe to the task and more.
