Nifty product overview
Nifty started as a side project in 2016 but transitioned into a full product company after a successful soft launch on ProductHunt. It was a highly-ranked project management solution on the site and was recognized as an upcoming all-in-one project management and collaboration solution for its intuition and ease of use.

Breakdown of core features
Milestones provide real-time automation of in-progress, completed, and overdue status based on the completion of tied tasks. Set bulk task dependencies by blocking all tasks in a milestone until the other tasks of a milestone are completed.
Nifty’s Kanban-style tasks enable you to flexibly organize, collaborate, and prioritize work while easily managing feedback and deadlines in an agile way. Detail View provides context to your tasks by tying them to your milestones. By completing these tasks, your milestone progress will automate your project status.
Create collaborative documents with team members and store them with your projects. Choose between a Nifty Doc or a Google Doc, Spreadsheet, or Presentation, which syncs with your Google Drive. Launch a document from a project discussion to immediately invite and involve everyone in the project. Team members can also post a comment on specific document sections, share feedback, and get instant answers in one place without having to go through long emails and messaging threads.
Discussions enable real-time collaboration among project members to share ideas, collect feedback, and take meaningful decisions. Access and share files from your computer, Dropbox, or Google Drive to bring every project-related document and files together.
