Good communication is critical to the success of any team.

Hive makes it easy to start a conversation with either a group or a specific individual. Whether you want to celebrate a milestone, discuss a project, or even gossip, Hive's native messenger has got you covered!

  2. Input your group name
  3. Select your group members

Hive's tip: 

  1. You can add messaging groups by department/team (e.g Marketing, Dev, Finance), by project (e.g Food party, Tech Conference) or by activity (e.g. Happy hour).
  2. You can also add automated messages from other tools you use (e.g twitter updates). Simply go to settings and click integration. It will take you to Zapier, a web automation toot that connects Hive to over 1,000 other apps.
