We use Asana for our organization to track all kinds of projects. We've organized into teams based on departments and I can see the progress of tasks in every department. I can follow tasks, assign, re-assign, mark complete, comment and attach documents. Altogether, it's a really convenient way to track projects.

Pros

Convenience, ease of use, quick snapshot of what's going on and ability to drill down. Only those interested in a certain project follow it. Tasks are checked off and progress is made.

Cons

Since our customer support tickets are created in Salesforce, anything that turns into a project ends up being created in Asana. The API in Asana isn't open enough for us to have a seamless integration between the two.

What I like about Asana is it's ability to be used for a lot of different things - the user ends up deciding on the best organization of tasks and teams. Which is great if the person setting it up knows how to do that, but it can be really frustrating when it's being set up by someone who hasn't thought through the whole task.
I strongly recommend taking advantage of their trainings and support to learn how to get the most out of this very adaptable tool.

Easy to use between the app and online content. It all looks fairly similar between the online content and the app which makes locating information quite easy

I feel like there could be a lot more done with asana. E.G. Incorporating google docs or something like that into a project. E.G. As a music publisher, I enter details about a song for our team to then register to collect royalties etc. But I would like to create a form within ASANA so that I don't miss any details and the information is in a similar layout every time.

This is strictly for project management but assuming you aren't expecting anything too terribly customizable. It's very likely that this will meet your needs. I've mostly used it for Marketing and Sales projects but it is excellent for team projects. It's so cheap and easy to use that my interns tell me that when they return to school they will continue to use it for their team projects.

Pros

- Integration with Google Drive and Dropbox
- Cheap or potentially free depending on your needs
- Easy to use with a practical, functional, and visually appealing design

Cons

- Sadly, most analytics and charting tools (even Gantt charts) are an add-on feature.

Recent software changes for

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Been using Asana for over three years now, have had no complaints until now. Our company moves 99% of "tasks" to other projects, the recent Asana change of eliminating the drop and drag task option to other projects is causing misplacement of tasks. Now you have to click on the project name erase it and type what project you want it to be in. If you mistype the project name, it creates a new project, and you loose your task since nobody is assigned to the new project.

Pros

For three years it has been great for workflow management until now.

Cons

Moving of tasks - with the recent decisions to remove features, makes me wonder what else they are going to remove rather than adding new things. Support has the same canned responses. Client contact by email from Asana needs improvement, you have to send a Asana request to the customer and have them sign up. So email threading with the client and staff is too many steps, it's easier just to send an email outside of asana.

Asana is a flexible task manager for managing projects of all sizes

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Asana is a practical project management tool that is easy for all users to learn. If all you need is a simple checklist, then Asana won't overwhelm you with bells and whistles. If you are managing a major project, then you just dig a little deeper to find a full-featured project manager. I have implemented this software with companies and non-profit organizations of various sizes, and have always had excellent user adoption because of the way they have layered in the complexity. Project members with just a few tasks can focus on their short lists, while their project managers still have a view of the project as a whole. Through their integration with InstaGantt, you can even generate the Gantt chart schedules that everyone expects from a project schedule.

They integrate with Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box, making for a truly unique experience in file-sharing, because of the way that users can attach a file from their cloud storage. Through the MS Office integration with Dropbox and Box, co-workers can open a file in Asana, edit it in the same window, and save it, so that anyone looking in Asana or the cloud system will see the latest version. With Box, you can even attach a folder if you want to share a collection of files.
Recently, they also introduced custom fields, so if the basic task does not track everything you need, you can easily add it (for a price).

Their pricing structure continues to evolve in a way that makes this Freemium software increasingly expensive if you want to use it with multiple teams or organizations. They calculate per-user pricing based on the number of users in the group, so if you belong to more than one, they get to double-dip by charging you for each group. They are also cutting back on the functionality for the free version, having removed advanced reporting and basic admin functions for new groups.

Pros

- easy to use for checklists and projects of all sizes
- phenomenal user guide, with lots of pictures and videos non-tech savvy users will appreciate
- integration with cloud storage for easy document management
- try it for your children's chores!

Cons

- pricing is climbing quickly, especially for new and multi-team users
- no built-in Gantt charts
- takes some time to understand who will receive notifications of various activities
- would be nice to be able to enter more info about sub-tasks without having to open each pane

Advice to Others

If you are just getting started with managing projects, organizing a group, or task managers, Asana is easy to use. If you want to manage large projects with it, make sure to include the licensing costs in your budget or they can add up surprisingly fast.

I used Asana first to collaborate with another person who was helping me. It soon grew into my own project management. I love that I can add links, photos, graphics as well as drag and drop items. The dragging and dropping allows me to always be on top of my priorities. Well worth using Asana.

Pros

I like the way the various items interweave and that I can drag and drop to reorder my items.

Cons

There is a lot to it. You have to get used to it a bit to learn all of the features.

Advice to Others

You can start using it in a simple way at first. Then start exploring the other features.

Value for Money

I've used ASANA several times over the years. The way it works, at it's very core has always been confusing to me. It's possible I've just never gotten great training on it, and just flown by the seat of my pants using a tool that I don't use that often as others are much more connected to it.

I can say I like the new look and feel, some of the new features are great. Sadly, that did make things a little more confusing.

Pros

Clean Crisp Design

Cons

It's confusing in the way it works and is setup

Advice to Others

Make sure you get adequate training on how to use the product

I like the flexibility of creating projects, commenting, and collaborating with multiple teams.

Likes Least

Some of the reporting and setting up 'priority tracking' is not as robust or flexible as I would like to see. I like to prioritize 'day', and then hand-pick the priorities for the day. The problem is that I have more tasks than I am able to get done, and when I fall behind it takes more effort to prioritize.

Recommendations

Having a good understanding of your own project management process is key. I have used several project management software packages in the past, and knowing what you hope to accomplish, or what you already do for process will help you see (1) how good of a fit Asana is, and (2) allow you to learn from Asana's available workflow what could be possible in the future.

It is quite popular among my clients. Modern UX, nice design, a lot of ajax is used, so you don't need to reload site after every click. It has anything I need for my project management (task, sub-task, due date, task assignment,...)

You need some time to get used to this web app. On the begging you will lost some time searching for it's functions. It is quite "heavy" site and need some time to load in your browser.

Recommendations

You should try it and give it some to get used to it, because on the begging is quite difficult for use, compared to other similar project management apps.

Ease-of-use

Asana is one of the most powerful and flexible task management products that I've tried. It goes way beyond the basics with features such as infinitely nested subtasks, the ability to comment, assign, add tags, due dates, etc. on a completely granular level, and of course my favorite feature - task completion celebrations! I feel like I've only scratched the surface in terms of how I use Asana... I'm aware of but have yet to use features like status updates, conversations, calendar view, and so on. However, the great thing about Asana is that it's flexible in how it can be used. If I just want to use it for basic task tracking, it can do that -- but if I want to use it to manage projects and collaborate with teammates, I can totally do that too!

Another aspect I like about Asana is its design and feel. There are subtle touches that make it fun to use, such as the loading messages, color schemes, and celebration animations. Even their error messages are friendly and help alleviate any frustration I would otherwise feel.

Their mobile app is well executed, clean and polished. If I wrote an app, I'd want it to work as well as Asana's app does.

The last thing I'd like to mention is Asana's awesome documentation. They have a beautiful "Asana Guide" with very polished and helpful videos, articles and guides. As someone who has written Knowledge Base articles, I'm envious of their Guide and how well they present their content.

Likes Least

Asana has a bit of a learning curve. Due to its power and complexity, it can take some time to get familiar with all of its capabilities and how to navigate it. Thankfully, the Asana Guide does an awesome job of guiding new users through the basics and advanced features.

Beyond that, some of the UI is a little more complicated than it needs to be... but that's a minor complaint at best.

Recommendations

It's hard to beat Asana in terms of flexibility and features. I'd recommend reading a bit of the Asana Guide and see if Asana's style of task management fits you and your team. There are other great solutions out there too that have less features, but are easier to use - so if you don't think you need all of the features that Asana has to offer, then keep looking!

The way you can quickly priotize tasks in the MY TASKS tab, it helps you to quickly put a priority to incoming tasks and they'll get sorted accordingly and it will leave only the one you should complete the same day in the page by default.
The customer support with the guides and how-tos is really excellent
The App Integration is first class, you can hook up several other services right directly in asana, like dropbox or google drive for file sharing, somthing for time control and management. And there is also instagantt which is extremely usefull if you want to do project management with a gantt chart and ability to have workload view, take and share snapshots of your work plan and several other features

Cons

Asana is more suited to be used in browser, because the mobile app is not as fluid as the web interface so i don't really use it. A mobile app that would be as fast as Todoist one and which would allow you to have some custom calendar views of your tasks and project would be awesome.

It manages my work and personal life for tasks.
The things it needs is an option to do a gant sheet or see all of the items in one view. I have a ton of projects that our team does at one time and it's hard to see what we are working on and how long it takes because there is no start and end date involved. Just a task date. The tags are helpful so I can add in quarter 1 or quarter 2 but it could improve in the areas of visuals. Right now the calendar only shows today's due dates, not the projects working on, etc.

Pros

I love that it holds all the information I need in one place and you can create a due date. You can share with others, add tasks for others, and comment on the project so that everyone is updated

Cons

The due date is great if it is a one and done, and there is a repeater of every week you can add, so I use this app for my bills...and it works perfect. But is you want a project start and end date that isn't so easy.

A colleague and i started using this a few years ago at work because we went from MS to Google for work email and workflow. MS had outlook and Google has no task manager so we tried 10-12 different task management apps. Asana was by far the easiest to master in a short time and its simplicity is what makes it powerful. Easy navigation, simple yet powerful, and integrating with Google has been seamless. I hope Google purchases Asana or something close to that so we can fully go "all in". We are in the free version now but hope to maybe step up our game and try the premium version to see its full potential.

Pros

Easy to master, simple, visually easy on the eyes, powerful and not overdone, integration with Google and Instagantt, free version is powerful enough to test before investing in premium version.

Cons

No integral Gantt charts. Growing it to a full project management software would help.

Advice to Others

Hopefully it grows to a full project management software to allow for use from external sales to internal sales, to execution, to aftermarket. Cradle to grave type software for a company.

Pros

Its really easy to keep track of tasks and organize them by project, personal, team, and more.
The sub-task feature is better than any other apps I've used and I have tried many.

Cons

While it is really easy to share and invite team members from inside and outside your organization, it would be nice if your personal tasks from across all teams/organizations/sites that you are part of could be presented on your home screen.

Pros

I really like Asana. It is easy to use and very intuitive.
We can collaborate with colleagues on projects and assign tasks to each other.
We can view the tasks by projects, by due dates, by responsible, etc. The plateform is very flexible.

Cons

I cannot think of any cons for the moment. Maybe the google extension could be improve by adding the possibility to assign the task to a project and to add a due date. And maybe a gmail extension could be introduce as well...

Pros

Very easy to use, allows to organize tasks so I can work in small pieces towards achieving large goals. My trick is to assign a due date for each small task, so every day I can focus on something very specific. I love the option to create repeated tasks, too.

Cons

Calendar starts on Sunday and can't make it start on Monday, what sometimes causes date mistakes. The phone and tablet apps show the "incomplete tasks" view by default, which I find to be very cluttered: I'd like to be able to set it to the "Tasks by Due Date" by default, so I can focus on what I need to do today, rather than random incomplete tasks.
