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 app is awesome, works perfectly and help me to keep up to date in all tasks, even when I am on the way or without access to my computer.
- The integrations with other companies is also really good.

Cons

The software is very easy to use, it does take a short while to get used to, but once you are there it's cake and so great for planning. We use it on a daily basis for all of our projects, it's also great to know who is in charge of which projects.

Cons

Sometimes it's a bit slow, but that could be our network. Really it's just good software that is well built and constantly getting better.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

N/A

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.)

Asana is a great tool for anyone who has a lot of things they need to get done and make sure they aren't forgetting anything!

Pros

I love using Asana to make sure that I'm not dropping the ball. I use it for reminders and large projects. Asana has allowed for me to sleep at night instead of trying to remember all the things I need to get done the next day and if I forgot anything from the previous day's work. No more word docs with to do lists!

Cons

The interface is a little confusing at first, but you really just need to take their onboarding course. I don't have much feedback here. They get the job done and I haven't been let down by their team.

N/A

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.

Value for Money

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.

It lacks any kind of real progress reporting or tracking (e.g. Gantt charts) - you can see at a very top level how tasks are moving but nothing really beyond that.

I have two roles at my job, for my "lower-priority" role I am the only person responsible for maintaining a list of content updates, errors, new pages, design improvements, and whatever else we might want to do with our website, as well as contacting our vendor and making sure our projects keep moving forward. I tried to use outlook and paper to organize my tasks, but every time, my primary role would get an influx of work, and when I'd go back to web work, I'd get overwhelmed all over again.

Asana has amazing options for manipulating each task are incredible and are close to exactly how I would have hoped they would be. It is really laid out well visually (thanks, in part to the section headers), so, being a visual person, I can easily find the task I'm looking for, even in lists of 30 items.

This has saved me a lot of time and confusion that would result in endless task list reorganizing before Asana. Being able to have one task in multiple projects really helps when I am unsure about organization or need to report on the progress to multiple teams. Prioritization is so much easier now. If I am too busy for anything, I feel like now, I at least know which balls I'm dropping, even if I don't have time for them. The fact that it's free, means I could implement it for myself without having to get management or accounting to go along with it. And now, my manager has a way to track my progress if he wants to.

Pros

Free, easy-to-use, versatile sorting options, search, drag and drop, unlimited projects, e-mail reminders

Cons

Subtasks don't display tags when viewing the parent task, task window can't be expanded further, print is hard to find and clunky, I have to use tags to set the status of each task before "complete"

Asana is my top choice for any small business that needs a Project Management software that grows with you. It's got a rich feature set and is built on a great API, so you've got plenty of connection options. You simply can't find a better Project Management system for small businesses

Pros

Built on a friendly API that will get you connected to many of the other tools you use on an everyday basis, most notably the connection with Slack is fantastic.
It's such a beautiful experience - I feel like I'm always using an up-to-date system, and just the aesthetics make me WANT to use this every day.

Cons

Although it does have many high-quality and thoughtful features, there are a few missing that larger businesses might find annoying, especially if you're an agency who works with more than a handful of clients at a time.

Advice to Others

Jump in and try out the free version for a while, get to know the program a bit, then jump to the paid version (which is very cost effective). This program is so easy to use and really beats out other more complex systems. Totally worth it.

Overall, Asana is a great program for small or large teams. It has just the right amount of features to work well for Marketing teams - not too robust like Jira, and not too simple like other basic tools. Collaboration was great across time zones, geographies, and departments.

Pros

Easy-to-use, intuitive GUI
Ability to eloquently add sub-tasks
Reliable (no bugs that I can recall)
Integrations with Google Apps, Evernote, etc. seamless
Conversations (@tagging) & reminders

Cons

GANTT only available by mediocre plugin
No time tracker
Project description field too small and unorganized to provide valuable information

Try it and stress test it against your team's daily project management processes and you'll see if it's right for you.

If you have repeat tasks that need to happen in your business in order to complete projects, then Asana is a great tool that will allow you to get through your workflow without forgetting key things that need to be done in projects. It's also a great way to get things done on your to-do lists.

Pros

I love that if you create a business account with Asana, you get access to more features. Right now, I'm the only one working in my web design business, but when i'm ready, this software will allow me to add team members to the system to help me get things done.

Cons

I didn't like all the emails I started to get from Asana telling me to complete my tasks. Ha. But, that's what the software is SUPPOSE to do. You can always change that setting.

Easy to use. The search feature is probably my favorite as it saves time from searching e-mails. Asana also is a great way to archive projects and files (such as ads, for us), which saves having to print and store a physical copy.

Pros

For a small business that publishes multiple international magazines, it's a huge time saver. It cuts down on having to search hundreds of e-mails for a file or ad proof. It also saves having to print everything for archival purposes.

Cons

I only use the free version, so I'm not fully aware of every feature, but my only complaint would be there is currently no stand-alone app (for Mac). The web-based version can be a little laggy at times, but nothing too serious.

Excellent filters, for example, "My Tasks".
This app has a lot of useful features, but not too many that make it difficult to use because I have found another apps have a lot of features but are very complex to use.
It's available for the web, ios, and android.
It helps to have spam-free conversations.

Cons

Chats are not clear at all when you try to fast read them, it would be better if it has a design similar to a chat conversation, with bubbles and the face of the person saying that.
It can be cheaper, it's not very expensive, but if it gets cheaper it would become a massive used tool.
It's very difficult to find a help chat on their page in case you have doubts.

It helps me keep overview of my work process, plan and prioritize and save time on a daily basis.

Pros

As a relatively new user it's really easy to understand this software and to get started. The software is intuitive and includes many useful features you want from a project management and planning tool. Features and steps are well explained within the software. Asana's guides, lessons and help pages are top notch.

Cons

I don't like how the personal avatars make the overview of pages too crowded. I would like to have a board to brainstorm about ideas and to sort my projects.

Useful if you have a big team working on a multi-layered project. Not the most helpful for what I do daily.

Pros

Ease of use, nice interface. It's definitely best for creating and finishing group projects, so it's not the most flexible, but it's very specific.

Cons

It doesn't have a huge amount of features, so we use other software for larger projects and only use it for our in-building maintenance requests.

organized work list, easy way to track previous tasks, great way to work with team and all be on the same page

Pros

how you can separate things into items due today, upcoming or later. Super helpful to not make you feel so overwhelmed with work

Cons

Honestly, there is not much I would change. It is so simple and easy to use. I would say making your personal account more personalized and also being able to favorite or star tasks and not just entire projects.

Complete project organization with members of the team who worked in office and remotely.

Pros

It is extremely intuitive and easy to use. The pages are clean and not cluttered. I like that adding someone is as simple as sending an invite.

Cons

The features could be a bit more integrated. It would be nice if deadlines set for projects could automatically show some sort of priority without being made to do so.

Pros

I love the ease of use and the ability to just get started. No real setup necessary or methodology to learn. It's like an advanced, yet simple To-do list.

Cons

I wish you get a lot more collaboration with the free version and more integrations options, especially with marketing automation tools (HubSpot) and other note-taking tools (Evernote) -- and sorry, third-party integrations don't count. :)

Pros

Asana works best when used as a team - it helps you organize projects and stop chasing emails because the updates can be in one spot. You can get reminders sent to our email and have both public and private projects.

Cons

If your team isn't using it, you are almost better off with a checklist in excel or via pen and paper. It can feel burdensome to update your tasks and there isn't a clear way to prioritize your tasks other than by date (which may mean you end up changing the dates a lot rather than have them dynamically adjust as bottlenecks occur).

Pros

Here's what I like about it:
I can set up multiple "projects" to follow, task manage, etc. The strength in the ease of setting this up and the addition of a calendar view and the ability to add files to the project is helpful. I even have a separate section for personal goals for the year, with sub tasks to get there. This is a nice feature.
I like the email notifications.
I like the ability to tag tasks so I can pull up just related tasks.
I like that I can assign a task to someone else on the team so I can view their progress. Something I need to use more.

Cons

I do not believe this is a good substitute for project management. Garbage in equals garbage out and this can get out of control if not monitored well. I also don't know that it would be functional for larger or intricate projects...but I also haven't used it for that, so it's tough to say for sure.

Pros

Asana is very easy to use even for the most simple projects. I like all features in the system. Very easy to manage.

Cons

I would like to have the ability to share project dashboards with external users who do not use Asana
