Top 10 HIVE CMS Features
When content is stored on a firm’s local server, or worse, an individual’s local computer files, managing content can get a little messy. From duplicates to missing files, to nightmare folder navigation, HIVE can solve all your content frustrations and get your firm on track to managing your content effectively. Here are a few highlights of top features that set HIVE apart from other CMS solutions.
Global Library Sharing
In HIVE, libraries are considered a collection of groups and users because the content within HIVE is not contained in any library but rather associated with one or more libraries. Through this association, libraries can be shared globally with multiple users and groups within your firm.
HIVE contains a file attachment feature that allows administrators to associate files and web links to any other HIVE content. Attach files such as PDFs, images, Word documents, etc. to HIVE content. This can be helpful, for example, for associating manufacturer specifications to a Revit family stored in HIVE.
Not Revit Dependent
Since HIVE doesn’t require Revit to function, users can browse, manage and organize their content without ever opening the application. When Revit is open, content can be dragged and dropped into the design model, making it easy to search, navigate, and use content from a single source.
HIVE contains a setting that allows smart caching, which means that HIVE can download and store content within a cache and clear it per user settings.
Persistent User Preferences
Individual HIVE users can store and access saved searches and favorites to use in their own workflows. Startup and interface settings are also unique to each user.
With the convenience of an online portal, your team can access the files they need at any time, from anywhere, as long as there is an internet connection.
Local and Cloud Storage Options
HIVE is fully cloud-enabled with options for both cloud and local storage. As long as you have an internet connection, you can access your design assets from anywhere, on any computer.
Content List Export
Admins can access Power BI templates and download Excel data files for CMS, Revit project (linked into HIVE), and user and group data.
