Hygger is ready to amaze you with its new features!

List Board

Now there is a new board type - List (To-Do list). This board simplifies the way to manage your activity and give you an overview of all tasks that are connected to a certain group.

To create a To-Do list, you need to do the same steps as to create other types of a board (Timeline, Sprint or Kanban): you click on the plus icon on the header and choose Board=> List. 


As Swimlanes on Kanban or Group on Timeline Groups help you to organize your tasks on List. Group can represent weeks, teams, projects and etc.

When you complete a task you put the check near the task title. The task will be removed from the list as the Quick Filter ‘Status - To Do” is switched on by default. 

To see the completed task together with uncompleted, please, switch off the quick filter.

To give more details to your task or customize it you can use Custom Fields. Open the Board Menu and click on the Custom Fields.  

You can choose one of the field's type, type its name and add a description if it’s required. There are 4 different field types:

  • Text 

  • Number

  • Drop-down

  • Date. 

If you choose Drop-down field type, you will be able to add various options to your Custom Field. The sequence of options doesn’t matter as you can change it anytime you want. 

Once you create Custom Field, you can click on the empty space under the Custom Field and type or choose the option depending on the type of your field.

Each type of custom fields can be edited or deleted. You create customs fields as columns on the List view and the chosen option will be displayed on the taskbar. 

If you want to change the order of your task by Custom Fields on List, you can use Quick Filter - Group By… There is an option for Drop-down field type. 

Projects Portfolio

Project portfolio allows you to specify the details of your project and then to add it as a task to Timeline. 

You can specify Start/End Dates, Description, Status(for example, Approved, Rejected, Active, Complete or Canceled), and the percent of Progress Completeness of each project you have. To add details to your project you can open the Company Settings=>Projects=>Settings. Each project has its own settings page. 

Another way to open the Project Settings is to open the three dots menu near the project name on the Global Menu.

Please note that the numerical value of Progress Completeness is set up manually. 

Once you specify project details, you are ready to attach your project as a task to Timeline to manage your portfolio. 

You create your Timeline and add Projects as tasks on Timeline with Project option. 

It helps you to have an overview of your projects and see its performing on one board. The task on Timeline is synchronized with your project, so if you change the due date on Timeline, the due date will be automatically edited on the Project Settings. The same will happen if you change the description, start date, status or Project Progress. Once a task will be updated on the board it will be changed automatically on the Project Settings.

Now you can manage all your projects in one place, and plan them visually, so you’ll meet the long-term goals in time. 

Guest Role

Hygger has added a new role - Guests. These users are non-paid one, so you can invite several guests to your company account. You can invite them as other company members: by invitation on email or by invitation link. When you add their email and determine their role as Guest, you need to assign them to a board or boards. 

Guests can do the following actions on the chosen boards:

  • see and open tasks;

  • comment tasks;

  • add attachments to the task

  • subscribe to the task.

They will get the same notifications as regular employees. However, Guests are not able to edit, create, archive, delete tasks, the same as to edit or move it. 

If it’s required you can downgrade your Guest to a Regular User and vice versa. It’s possible to do on the Company Settings, Members page. 

Time of Cards

Time of cards can be switched on the Board Menu=>Show. 

By using the Show option you can determine how much time your tasks are situated on the current board and column.

Quick Filter - Time of cards

Once you switch on the Time of tasks on column or board, you may notice new Quick Filters - Time on Board and Time in Column. Use them to identify the tasks that are In Progress for a long time and which of your completed tasks can be archived. 

Project Filters

On the Enterprise plan you can assign one board to different projects. The same can be done for the tasks. To see the tasks from a certain project you can use a new quick filter - Projects. Click on the filter, choose one of your Projects and see all tasks assigned to this project.

New Design of the Global Menu

Hygger has updated the Global Menu, where you can easily find the board, collection or project you need. First of all, Projects and Collections are separated from each other. Now you won’t have the long list of mixed collections and projects. If you need, you can collapse all Collections or Projects you have.

Secondly, each board type has its own icon, so you visually distinguish boards, for example, Timeline and Kanban boards. For the board icon is used the same color as the background color of this board.
