Each project's home page gives you and your team one place to track key project information. The home page is perfect for housing top-line project information and giving you a single destination to get a quick pulse on how the project is moving. See below for the many features the home page has to offer!
Navigate to the Project Home page within a project by clicking the "Home" button on the right side of the project tool bar:
Easily access and update project members and see the project owner.
Add a new status update to share the latest on the project. Select from three color-coded statuses to visually show the RAG status:
- On Hold
- At risk
Project status houses status update history, so you can always see previous updates. Consult history to see how the project has been moving.
Files that are attached directly to action cards will be aggregated in the 'Files' section of project home. You will be able to see the file name, the action card that is attached to, and the user that action is assigned to. Click on the action title to jump directly to the action card or click on the file title to open the file.
Project Information aka Project Custom Fields
Have a specific project categorization you want to document? Add a text or dropdown custom field to your home page. Custom fields are great for documenting project type, tier, or priority level. Project custom field inputs can be edited directly on the home page or from project navigator.
Give clear direction to your team on the purpose of the project.
List attachments at the project level for members to easily reference and review. For example, this is a good location to store guidance documentation for the project.
Baseline and Approvals
Baselines are a snapshot of what was planned before beginning a project. Baselines typically track the planned start date and end date of each work item on a project.
To access baselines in Hive, you'll want to go to "Hive Apps" and enable "Baselines". Doing this will enable Baselines for all projects in your workspace. Once enabled, you can take a snapshot of you project from the Project Home page:
You can view the Baseline data by exporting the project to Excel/CSV. In the export, you'll see two new columns: "Planned Start Date" and "Planned End Date". You can use these values to compare the "planned" data from the Baseline to the "actual" data as a result of project execution.
Keep track of all notes relating to a project. Notes that have been tagged to the project can be found in notes section on the Home Page.
Hive Notes can be assigned to a project by clicking the project dropdown on the left side within each Hive Note to select the corresponding project:
Invite and keep track of external users added to a project all in one place through the Project Home.
Project % completion
Check in with the project completion dashboard to see how actions in the project are moving. The dashboard shows the number of actions overdue, incomplete and complete.
Get a snapshot of how your project is tracking to the budget from the "Billable hours budget" dashboard. It uses the project's budget and submitted timesheets to calculate the project's use of its budget.
Whatever your project, the project home page makes it easy to update project information, give it a little customization, and always stay up-to-date on progress.
