    Pros

    I can use it for anything and everything. As a task and project management system, it allows me to manage both work projects, daily/weekly household tasks, Christmas gift lists and every other thing I need to do but can't at that moment. It provides integration to an array for apps and programs, and I use the free version so, even better! I can set repeating tasks and assign them to any other Asana user in my house or in the office.

    Cons

    I really can't think of anything. I wish the push notification were a little more prdictive, like as my list for the dwindles give me an idea of what I should do for tomorrow.

    Keeps me organized. Work is going smoothly and good, thanks to this. Assigning the tasks to my agents has never been easier.

    Pros

    Very simple for using once you get use to it. Very good for creating tasks and assigning them. Good for small organizations, able to communicate with whole organization in one place.

    Cons

    For beginners it can be complicated. For now I don't have something that I dislike. Sometimes conversation can be lost in a news feed and it can be faster, but that's it.

    Pros

    I used asana to track projects globally. It is easy to use (no training really needed), the search is great, and the support when we didn't know how to do something was timely and helpful. You can do quite a bit with the free version before you have to upgrade.

    Cons

    We really didn't have cons. The cons are the people who don't follow-up on their tasks or mark them complete. I never tried to print a project plan but I don't know if that is even a feature as most people have easy access to web 24/7.

    It’s great to find a checklist software that’s “fun” to use! The animations when you check off your items make your day a little brighter!

    Cons

    I need to be able to assign a full project to an individual - it’s not great for that. We want the ability to collaborate as a team with individuals taking charge of full projects but being able to see what each other are working on and this doesn’t seem possible.

    For large and unwieldy projects, we converted to Asana, but now we can even use it for simple day to day things to communicate quickly and stay task oriented.

    Pros

    Asana grew on my extremely quickly. I thought I was functionally against project management software because it didn't do anything a well organized Outlook couldn't. However, the ease of task assignment, the calendar and timeline views, and, honestly, the visual pleasure in using it has made Asana the new thing my team keeps constantly open.

    Cons

    There's still a learning curve to the high level functionality, but if there's something I wonder if Asana can do, it's pretty easy to google and find someone who has already figured out how to do it.

    Pros

    I find Asana to be very user-friendly, and my favorite are the email updates about items I wouldn't be able to keep track of without Asana.

    Cons

    Not sure. There are so many features that I don't use... for me, the website doesn't need to have so many features, but surely they are useful for others. Dashboard, file storage, etc... don't use any of that.

    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.

    I am quite like it, we are continuously using it for our everyday jobs.

    Pros

    Its card (or tile) based interface is very easy to get use to it. You can organize all of your task to projects which makes easier to follow to dos and deadlines.

    Cons

    If you don't like special animations then those can be disturbing. Flying whales, narvales and rainbows are fun though, and it urges you to finish a task as soon as you can to see what's coming at the moment of closing a task.

    Love Asana from early 1.0 days. This software is ideal for the solopreneur, or a small team. It keeps tasks sync'd across the entire team/project. The ability to add multiple projects and invite team(s) into each project and seeing the calendar view makes planning out the day a breeze.

    Pros

    Asana 2.0 has come a long way versus the original 1.0. Although 1.0 was pretty good at keeping track of tasks, Asana 2.0 makes things a lot more fluid in updating the team on what project (or tasks) need the most attention. Notifications has gotten a lot better on Asana iOS, where e-mail notifications as a backup makes it ideal for those who work out of e-mail. The calendar view on Asana also is a nice touch, so you can see what your day looks like, this is a nice touch compared to just traditional task - list like most to-do apps.

    Cons

    Asana needs its own desktop app, still waiting for it.

    Pros

    Great organization tool that makes it easy to keep track of tasks and tsk assignments.

    Cons

    Takes a little time to get used to and to learn how to manage tasks with the system but worth the adjustments.
