I wish they would make duplicating task lists easier for repeat projects!

Pros

Ease of Use, Unicorns! There is a good bit of functionality- you have to search for it, but it is out there. Great platform for sharing across project partners

Cons

Features are not as obvious as they should be. Sometimes you really have to dig to figure out how to manipulate your tasks lists as you need.

Pros

Asana is great to use if you're managing a team of people working on a strict deadline. I would recommend this for anyone working on time sensitive projects with strict deliverables.

Cons

Asana has an excellent UI, but is lacking in task sorting. Each time I login, I need to "sort" my tasks by due date.

I'm a lot more a fan of Trello, it's more user friendly and easy to edit, move, duplicate, and learn. However, Asana might work better for certain organizations. Make sure to test both out first before deciding what is best for your company.

Pros

Ease of self-training (if you have the time to learn all the little ins and outs), group task assigning, flexibility on locating and naming projects and tasks. Ease to edit task description. Helpful new feature that makes project boards look a lot like Trello if you wish, otherwise it's more of a list.

Cons

Duplication of project limitations, not the best for visual navigation, limitations in email notifications, self-training means needing to have a lot of time to figure things out. Inability to edit a comment after being posted in a task is beyond annoying. Overall, it doesn't keep the team as organized as a software like this should, but at the same time, each person tried organizing their projects their own way, which made it confusing on other members. The only way Asana would work out for our team is if there were rules on layout and assigning tasks properly,.

Pros

I love that you're able to assign tasks and create projects across the entire team. I use it to keep organized and stay on top of tasks daily and it has been a very important tool in staying on top of tasks. I like the color-coding and ease of list creation.

Cons

It's not super user-friendly, I've been using it for a couple of years and there are a lot of features I don't use because they aren't easy to find or utilize. Also, the team doesn't always look at their assigned tasks which then get ignored and lost.

Marketing team likes it but others stopped using it.

Pros

Ease of use. Design of solution allows attachment of files, links. Calendaring allows easy at a glance view of assigned and due tasks. Also, it's easy to create user groups.

Cons

It really is not a project management solution. You can create a project and tasks beneath it but the lack of Gantt chart type reporting, the absence of more project management type layouts really limits this tool to creative projects. It's not well suited to overall project management.

Pros

Asana is a great tool for being able to assign tasks. In my role as Director for the UVSS, I had trouble delegating, and Asana made it a lot easier. You can simply tag people in the task. The calender feature is useful too.

Cons

Canva organizes by project rather than team, which is a benefit but also a restriction. Each calender is limited to the project so it can be confusing if you are in a lot of different projects.

- The inbox is really good! There is no way a person involved in a task can say that didn't know what was going on.

- The integrations with other companies is also really good.

Cons

- The price could be cheaper for smaller companies, beside that Asana is extremely useful for every company/team size

The free version is great for personal/work use. However, if you want to add others to collaborate the limit is 5 additional members (last time I checked). More than 5 you have to pay, so if you're a growing organization keep this in mind. There are other programs you can use completely free with unlimited members. I just have gotten use to Asana.

Pros

Easy on the eyes. I appreciate the check list within each task you create, the dividing titles and the fact you can create different projects to help organize and separate things. You can add comments, a description, due dates, etc, your task can be very detailed or simple.

Cons

Sometimes the site is unreachable for a short period. It scares me a little but I never lost anything. But it reminds me to export and back up everything.

Pros

I like the look and feel of it. I really love the new boards option. I use it for hiring. It helps me to have an overall view of how my projects are doing and everyone's progress in their tasks.

Cons

Note: I'm using the free option. It took me a while to figure it out. It's not super intuitive. Sometimes, it's hard to find tasks that are assigned to me. If I click on the tasks under my personal tasks, it doesn't take me to the project so I can't see any notes or documents attached. I then have to search for the actual project in order to get to the assigned task. I'm also not able to drag and drop tasks to other projects. (Again, this may not be the case with the paid option.)

Overall a great tool to track and keep on top of projects, specifical ones with many steps or people involved.

Pros

It's great to have on place to store all projects, big and small. It's easily accessible for all team members and provides updates as needed to keep us all on track, and the ability to view the status.

Cons

There are no real cons except our lack of use. Sometimes it feels repetitive to enter the information in there and remember to use their email features vs just emailing in our work email. It's a product you should either commit to use or don't use at all. Half use just confuses the process more and makes it even harder to track projects.

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.

Asana is by far the best Project Management software out there. I've tried multiple other softwares like Trello, Freedcamp, and others and none have met my needs like Asana does.

Pros

Asana has by far the best, most well designed user interface. It's so easy to use and every new team member we add is up to speed on how to use it in no time with very little training.

It allows you to view tasks in both a list view and a cards view like Trello now.

It allows for multiple views by project, team member, calendar etc.

They give LOTS of value before asking you to pay. It's free for up to 15 users I believe, which is so awesome for us being a small startup that can't afford to pay for a project management software quite yet.

Cons

It can be a little slow loading at times. But honestly it's so amazing otherwise that I'd still much prefer it over any other software.

And it has a large file upload size on the free tier, but it would be nice if there was a better way to sort/view just attachements.

Advice to Others

If you want to save a bunch of time sifting through project management software take my word and just go straight for Asana. My whole team loves it and I can't say enough good about it.

Time-saving, reduced anxiety.

Pros

Still in my infancy actually utilizing Asana. I'm all about integrations: asana and I have created a machine that simplifies processes, increases efficiency, a more proactive system so that I can provide the best customer service to my clients. Calendar sync is a must, E-mailing tasks, files, adding conversations between clients, team members, thankful for the plentiful integrations and 3rd party apps - these are what change the game for asana. Tag feature comes in handy, especially when integrated w/other apps. Copy + paste from spreadsheet software is mind blowing and saves a ton of time. Overall, asana is the best project management software that's cost effective, affordable for everyone and definitely living up to the hype.

Cons

At first glance, Asana seems like the popular kid and intimidating. Over a year ago, I was initially overwhelmed, got discouraged, quit and used another app b/c of setup complications. Recently, connected w/a consultant, my life and business needed a new solution to keeping organized - asana was suggested. More variety of industry sample templates during the free trial would be helpful, at this stage i had no idea about free 3rd party templates that just make life easy. Forget everything else mentioned above: what I'm most dissatisfied about is the inability to change project layouts.

Overall I would highly recommend, it has really helped organize my TAP Team and allow us to move more orders through our production facility.

Pros

I had looked at many production/team meeting type of web based programs. Asana was the one that I decided to give a try. Although there are shop management systems out there for the printing industry....the ones I have subscribed too, were either too hard to learn and teach staff to use efficiently or they were cost prohibitive. Asana offers a basic structure for me to be able to build a working shop production management system, that is fairly easy to teach and learn.

Cons

The cost for 10 seats as they call them was a bit expensive for the year, for a small business. However I think it is worth the money at this point and time. Especially if they continue to offer more updates and improvements to their platform. However, the most disappointing thing is that although now I have paid for and am using 10 positions on their program, I must buy another 5 seats on their program even though I may only need two of them for future expansion of employees that would be needing access to this system. It would be nice to see the option to add single positions, at a bit higher price than the 5 seats, that I would be required to buy now.

Great productivity app, below are a list of benefits I have experienced:

- Team productivity
- organization
- Ease of mind
- Team accountability

Pros

The integration with instagannt is awesome, my boss really didn't like how asana wasn't more visual in tracking tasks and projects, instagannt integration made this simple with a quick download, he can now easily see progress visually.

I like the email reminders when tasks are coming up, so constant use of the app isn't necessary (Although too many of these can overwhelm an inbox).

I really like the custom field dropdowns that allow you to prioritize project by a simple click of the mouse.

One of the best features of Asana, is the ability to decrease emails in your inbox. Because you can easily comment on each assigned task, and follower can just look at each project as they see fit.

Cons

Learning most of the functionality and add-on apps associated with the software can be an incredible learning curve, that really everyone on your team needs to understand. When working with a multigenerational company, it can be hard to get those of the older generation to use it.

Managing organizational projects.

Pros

Been using the app for the very long time. I like the ability to tag tasks. The software looks better recently, as it has some visual improvements.
Finally, the heart for like was replaced for a normal icon of a thumb up.

Cons

It has a lot of different functionality and sometimes seems too heavy, cluttered and hard to get around. When you open and have a lot of tasks on you it's hard to concentrate and focus on a single task.
I don't like that you cannot create subfolders within a project and have to use semicolons to separate things or milestones.
I don't like that it shows the text with the history of the tasks activity. It's makes it hard to read and very busy.

Helps me keep organized without getting distracted or overwhelmed by too many things on my screen. It has a LOT of features, but you only use what works for you.

Pros

- Love how simple it is to start for new users
- Since the last update, it has become even faster to use
- Excellent mobile app
- You can make a process as simple (long one page task list with sections for personal use), or as complex (team projects, with milestones, with calendar, with sharing and security, with Kanban boards, templates etc.) as you want.
- Best help section i've seen on any app!

Cons

- Used to dislike the extra second or two it took to close tasks and refresh (but this was resolved with recent update. It's now super snappy)

The paid version of Asana, which you need if you want anything more than stripped-down basic functionality, is pricey. You pay in blocks of users instead of per-seat, which is not a great model for many use cases (such as freelancers or very small teams). As a freelancer, the pricing structure is the primary reason I have chosen not to continue past my trial. If it weren't for the price, I would likely be happily using Asana today!

Pros

Organization had played a key role in our engagement with Asana. I love the brand and the quirks. Who doesn't love a unicorn bouncing across your screen from time to time?

Cons

The integrations is where it hits my team hard. We use jira and the dev side of things because of the integral integration with GitHub. It's not really possible with Asana and really has disrupted our workfkows

I found Asana to be heavy and complex to use, for both me and my team members. I know some people really like it, so consider this as an opinion of a small group of people.

Pros

A lot of features, some depth

Cons

Overly complex, depressing GUI

Advice to Others

Check it out and make your own mind about it.

Pros

I've known the Asana team since, they 'were just a great idea'. They used it internally, as do we at Sealed Speed. We're an extremely creative group of super talented technologists.

Great ideas without execution are just a distraction. Asansa helps us capture all of these great ideas, assign tasks to move them forward, and best of all: know at any given point in time, where multiple great ideas are: along with good documentation of the thought processes behind the decisions each on the teams went through to get there. Without Asana, a lot of great ideas would never have made it past the whiteboard.

Cons

You still have to apply discipline to which great ideas to move forward or drop altogether. People still only have a fixed amount of time in their day. No software can change that. But Asana's the right tool to help make those tough decisions.

Pros

Asana has become very fast and flexible to use over the last few years.
It is very strong on the underlying project management method: Always only one asignee, generally open to many people
being able to have one task in many projects is perfect. Example: Purchasing a part and assigning is to the "Purchase list" and the project where it is used.
By now the tool is fast enough for all situations.

Cons

Sometimes a bit of a steep learning curve. But they help with many (fragmented) tutorials
The free version got cut back by a lot in the last time.
It sometimes might get a bit cluttered when you deal with many tasks. The search helps well around this.

Staying on top of assignments. I was frequently reminded of tasks I had not marked done.

Pros

I enjoyed the ability to collaborate with team members, create multiple projects, and assign people to tasks.

Cons

Too many features/complex. It could be simplified by analyzing how users best organize their tasks and offer only that.

Pros

Easy to use, great for coordinating among multiple team members, project templates are customizable making it easy template reoccurring projects, easy to set and manage deadlines, task list can be organized into sections to help prioritize outstanding tasks, inbox features allows for task updates and questions to be easily managed, ability to forward emails directly to Asana to create a task, like features make is a nice way to give positive feedback to teammates, ability to set a deadline for specific tasks, dashboard feature gives a nice overview of the progress of a project (e.g. 10 completed tasks, 22 outstanding tasks), progress status allows team members to identify any obstacles that are slowing down or stalling the project.. Overall very advanced features yet super easy to use. User interface is very simple to navigate.

Cons

Task list can become overwhelming when managing multiple projects but that may be more of a reflection of my workload than the software itself.
