Pros

Asana has been an awesome project management software we've been using to keep a closer eye on where we are with our projects. Without Asana we've been so fragmented with keeping everyone in the loop. Asana closed these gaps for us very efficiently!

Cons

At first we had some issues on Android with Asana but these were quickly cleared up after we installed a couple updates. Once this was updated everything ran amazing!

Pros

Fantastic to make sure that I am organised and up to date with my work as well as seeing and allocating to other members in my team if needed.
you can keep up to date with the comments section which allows others to see where you are up to if you have allowed them to view. If not it acts a a helpful reminder of where you are up to.

Cons

If you have projects set up you need to assign your own tasks to those projects. This can make it easy to 'lose' a task at times.

Pros

I love this product for coordinating a team on a project, provided people actually use it. The interface is simple and easy to learn.

Cons

Getting people to use it if they aren't organized, is difficult. A lot of people lack the discipline to keep track of what they are doing. However, when working with people who are organized and disciplined, it's a great tool.

Keep Your Projects and Work Life Organized and Assessable

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A
Value for Money

I have found Asana to be a great collaboration tool! It has made large projects so much more manageable and keeps us on track without missing key "to do's."

Pros

I really like the Board view for Projects. This way of looking at and organizing projects combines the benefits of a Kanban board with the practicality and logic of many simpler apps but with the ability to include teammates (both inside and outside the organization) for ease of collaboration. The constraints of working with spreadsheets is avoided (I cannot accomplish what I need to do working with SmartSheets without a lot of work).

Cons

Not many. I do supplement Asana with a simple "to do" list in another because I can be lured into spending too much time organizing my own lists (this is a personal issue, not a software one).

Customer support is amazing!!

Pros

Asana is great for to-do lists shared by remote teams, or team members who travel a lot. It keeps tasks organized and has a lot of customization options. Its decent for holding people accountable for tasks, but not perfect.

Cons

It is critical for the team to be all on the same page about how to use the software. With so many different configurations and applications, real goals and projects can become white noise.

Pros

Asana has provided a more holistic ecosystem for my team's collaboration than the several systems we all used previously. The UI is quite intuitive, simple, and attractive. The ability to customize your dashboard has allowed for a powerful analytic to monitor personal progress and team progress toward our objectives.

Cons

Asana can require a bit of a learning curve, especially for those lacking a technical background, as is often the case with a feature-rich tool. I would really like if there was a built in instant messaging tool to assist in collaboration.

It is a fantastic and beautiful tool, and probably worth the investment of learning and using all of the features. Actual adoption has been difficult for us.

It is powerful, it has So Much functionality, and is really a beautiful and interesting to use. The timeline feature especially is fun and useful.

Cons

It is just too hard to implement. The investment for most of our team to learn and adopt the different tools and features has been to big a bite to swallow.

Value for Money

I use it both in my personal life and business. The more time you invest in playing around with the features, the more you can personalize it to your needs.

Pros

Can be as complex or simple as you make it. On a smaller scale, it can be a good "to-do" task management list. On a grander scale, can be built into an entire ecosystem for an organization, in which departments personalize their projects, sections, and tasks to fit their needs. Versatility is its virtue, but can take years to realize how that fits into a company's systems.

Cons

Can be bombarded with notifications as a manager who oversees many projects. Hard to get a high-level sense of what employees have been able to accomplish when you get stuck in the weeds of micro-tasks.

Cons

I don't like how you now MUST pay for the version even if you have a small number of people on your team. When I first found Asana it was free. I wish my company had more of a long term chance to use it because I know they would absolutely be on board with buying it if the trial was longer and they could get more time with it.

Overall, Asana was a great way to stay organized. I think it worked better for personal, single use than large group use in a company though.

Pros

I liked that you could arrange things with one click. Finished with only part of a project? Click it. Finished with a whole project? Click it.
Everything is still available to reference again, but it's out of the way for now with one click.

Cons

It's difficult to use as a group or in a company setting because different people have different ways for deciding what's a project, what's a task, and what's a subtask. I wonder if there's a better way to structure it to be more standard.
