Robust Management, Anywhere

HIVE™ is easy to set up and manage. All of the libraries, projects, tags and analytics are administered via a single location.
With this version, we’ve added more robust content update capabilities. Using a simple process and a spreadsheet editor, content managers can make sweeping changes to content data for their organization.

Use a Find/Replace operation to change file pointers of the files stored locally.

A similar spreadsheet workflow can be used, allowing HIVE admins to manage HIVE users and groups. For even more power, HIVE administrators can leverage the CTC Active Directory Accounts Sync tool to automatically generate and manage HIVE users and groups directly from internal corporate Active Directory.
