In General, it turned out to be an interesting solution that does not require much time to master the product and start working and thus using this product you can easily organize the work of your whole organization and bring your business to success.

Pros

A great tool for managing projects and tasks in the organization. Has a free version to test the features of this product. Quite clear and pleasant graphical interface. Using Asana, you can organize your tasks in different ways, such as list, or in dash board style. Asana offers a fairly simple interaction between teams. Plus, Asana offers calendars, notifications, reminders, file sharing, history tracking, and search functionality.

Cons

Of the minuses can be noted only a problem with permissions, in which all users have the same permissions and is quite very easy to someone accidentally delete something, but fortunately it is also quite simple to return everything to the back.

Value for Money

Pros

Asana is a really great platform for keeping track of the progress of team projects. Team members are always notified on the progress of their projects and helps everyone know what's going on as everyone in the team gets notified via email. There are also many integrations that help track work and make things efficient. There's no need to go back and forth with emails and chat cause you can have all communication within Asana to keep everything in one place so you don't forget details which can happen when you communicate in multiple platforms.

Cons

The only thing that may be a Pro or a Con is that EVERYBODY gets notified even for communication for a specific team member. This may sometimes be a hassle when there are a lot of team members in one project who are in constant communication. With all the notifications of everyone coming in, your email's inbox can get a bit messy. There's a way around to "private messaging" but it totally defeats the purpose of getting everyone in the loop. It may help if there's a function for team members to choose the option of getting the notification or not when he/she is not mentioned.

If you're a businessman or entrepreneur and need some organization with your everyday work, get Asana it's a great investment.

Pros

I love this software because I've used it for everything I do. From trainings to meetings and even for tasks I need to assign my assistant. The options to add subtasks, create dropdown option for projects and a lot more makes it the most amazing tool I need that is essential for my job.

Cons

Unless you get the Premium feature, you wont get the best things from Asana just a a usual checklist. I got the premium so I got the best!

Tracking out the progress, allows better team collaboration, Prioritize tasks on the dashboard, drives out better results.In general, a Project can be categorized and can be divided into goals to employees, which make each piece of work traceable.

Pros

One of the best team collaborating and productivity app built to showcase the tracking of the project. Named as editor choice award, and originally built by Facebook co-founder to efficiently track the progress of the employees then opened to enterprise level and one of the common app which you see as an integration in Dropbox, google drive, Evernote, zipper and harvest.

Cons

It is an app from ownership can be extended at that point, access to the project and it's deadline creates an enterprise and contract company to reach their goals on time, but not every time. A time allowance should also be given for better work-life balance. Reported Big projects simultaneously can be divided into minimal parts.

Try it for free first and check if it works in your normal daily routine. I think this is great for a smaller company or organization that is just getting started. For mid to large size you might want a more central system to keep track of tasks.

Pros

It's visually nice to look at and very strait forward. Everything is relatively east to learn if you have never used any CRM or mrp system before. This task management software let's you group certain tasks and crjste sub tasks as well.

Cons

Sometimes its too simple and doesn't have the more advanced settings and configurations as other similar software. The notifications don't feel as concerning compared to other systems.

Perfection in one program.

Pros

1. Excellent for manage your employees, the activities they have to do and the progress they make. 2. Asana has an app that help you to control everything, so if you are a chief you can stay at home and monitor the work, and if you are the employee the app let you be connect everytime you needed. 3. Easy to use and with an attractive aesthetic.

Cons

1. I did not really find anything that can be seen like a bad thing, but if you are not working in a Company I recomend don`t use it, because Asana has many functions that are not required for personal management.

Ease-of-use

Don't try to talk anyone into Asana! I have found the successful launches are as follows 1. Its your team and you will only work through Asana and its just what it is. ( not the best feeling roll out, but I have never not had a team member come around one day and have a list of..did you knows about Asana features) 2. When someone is talking through an issue they are having that you know Asana could easily solve politely build the project bones right then and there and car sell them (wouldn't it be great if you had a tool that could show you... or how easy would your job be if you could always find the document xx emailed to you for project....) and when the head is nodding flip your screen towards them and be like "would it look something like this? 3. Just start using it and start rocking your job and when people start to wonder how you have organized your life and work in such a short period of time. tell them you aren't sharing your secret or your secret software... and I'll be damned if they don't all figure out what you are using and just plan adopt it and them come back around like they are some sort of secret tech agent that figured out your secret and cannot believe you were holding this back from them....even though you had a 3 month internal adoption campaign for it earlier in the year...*head shake*

Pros

Asana is a very easy to pick up software. I stumbled across it while on the search for something to help me stay on top my teams progress on the multitude of small to medium size projects they were involved in at our company. At the time my team was struggling to organize the fire drill level projects that seemed to be dropped off in person, emailed, or communicated through a variety digital outlets all day every day. A the time I was wasting time trying to help the five year old organization dial in on a communication method and project management philosophy. Having no luck trying to fix the problem company-wide I turned inward for a tool to help our team. Asana was exactly what we needed. The two biggest function i used right out of the gate were To do list and Email forward to task (forward any email into Asana through either a general email or a project specific email - whoever you put in the [To] becomes the owner of the task [CC] becomes a follower [subject] is the task title [body] becomes the task description. So many executives would just email me all day long with things that specific people on my team took care of, before Asana I had to email it to them and then keep a list of items to remember to follow up on and to follow up with the executive to make sure they got the response or service they were looking for. Enter Asana - Same as before I forward the email along adding the Asana email, big difference is now I have a digital list of what tasks I have forwarded on, can see the solution provided, can see the response from the executive, and get to sleep at night when my team member checks it of as done and it clears from my assigned to others list. Also helped with repeat questions as the executive team started to see the change in our department they slowly started to adopt Asana for themselves and their teams. Onvce they started interacting through Asana we stopped getting common repeat questions because as soon as they would start typing it the system would pull up previous items and ask if any of these were relevant to their question. Win Win, less emails, people empowered to have the answers they need without needing to file every communication themselves, only have to follow up on tasks I've assigned out when I get the "hey should someone have done something with this" pop up when the system feels like a task is going longer than usual. Also connects with ... nearly everything

Cons

The dashboards are very basic. You are better off tracking larger projects between a three way Asana, Instagant, Harvest integration. It is great that you can create templates for larger projects or tasks that reoccur so you don't have to rebuild it every time, but its a pain that you cant have the people who do the task assigned to the template. you can but then they get blown up with reminders and end up spending time searching for to-do's that are not real because its in the template.

Pros

Asana is web-based, nothing to download. It is an internal (company) project management tool to help reduce the volume of emails, meetings etc. The software is free for groups up to 15 people, there is a monthly fee after that. Asana also integrates with Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.

Cons

Asana is a task management program and is not too flexible outside of that scope. The desktop version is easier to use than the mobile app. Would like to be able to view a team timeline of projects.

The ability to pass tasks back and forth and have them associated to multiple projects is helpful. The recently added ability to paste pictures is also a welcome addition.

The inability to sort the Inbox is a glaring omission. A large portion of my inbox notifications are either other people completing tasks or tasks being added to a project that I follow, but unfortunately I can't filter to these types of things and archive them in bulk, so I end up completely abandoning the inbox as it becomes useless.

For small to medium teams Asana can be a great project management tool for their internal projects. It offers a great user interface that is easy to use and easy for new hires to learn, which is always important with a growing team.

Pros

Asana does a great job of making it effortless for you to create projects, organize these projects into tasks and assign these tasks to other group members, as well as set deadlines that reveal timelines for the overall project. Also, members of the project can add tasks as needed as well and then it notifies others, even if it's assigned to another member.

Cons

It will take some amount of time to learn of it is multiple capabilities to understand what configuration and methods will work for you. The application itself can sometimes be pretty slow.

I was able to assist a startup in launching their business which included a website, branding, marketing plan and business development. Everyone was on the same page and everyone knew exactly what was expected of them and when. Discussions could be had inside the tasks which cut down on the back and forth text messages and emails.

Pros

Since they allow 15 users on the free plan, this software is an excellent way for a startup to get their projects off the ground with very little setup and without having to configure servers or software. The feature set is deep and the ability to truly organize many projects is made easy through a very nice on the eyes UI.

Cons

Definitely excels at project collaborations with multiple people. For solo projects there is better software when no collaboration is required on a team

It's go a really easy and intuitive interface. It's really great for collaboration and teams to get on the same page and have a single location of all tasks. You can also assign and delegate tasks between the users of a team, which is pretty slick and makes assigning responsibilities very easy.

If you use agile or scrum, Asana can work for you, but other, possibly free, tools will work much better. We use it as a secondary management tool because of that. It's very slick and easy for what it does, but I haven't seen it do all that much.

Asana has an extremely user-friendly interface and it is so easy to manage multiple projects across multiple departments. Asana is an excellent project management tool, because it allows you to create to-do lists and tasks, and also allows you to download any files related to this particular project, which is very convenient and allows you to store all the information in one place. It is also easy to mark and assign tasks to colleagues, create several projects and organize them, and also cooperate in many departments without being confused.

Cons

There is no big overview of all the projects in one category, and the presentation of the calendar leaves much to be desired. Also, I would like to see the possibility of integration with the GMail calendar.

Asan is an A+ product! Not only does it allow you to create your own tasks, but it also allows team oversight and collaboration. I recommend the service for any size company.

Pros

Asana allows me to stay organized throughout the day. I use it to make lists, set reminders, and create daily, weekly, and monthly goals. Before using Asana, I felt scattered and inefficient at work. This software has noticeably increased my productivity.

Cons

The cost for the program is a little high. It's worth the investment if your company adopts it collectively.

I use Asana daily as a task manager for a psychologist's private practice. I improve systems.

Asana has helped me take my ideas about running a small office efficiently, and turn them into a reality.

Pros

This software is powerful. There are still features about Asana that I want to explore, but which I know could help me in my usage. I like how flexible it is, and how much information can be stored inside of it. For instance, I re-vamped the way that my workplace was using Asana, by storing all relevant standard operating procedures (SOPs) *within* task descriptions. That way, when someone asks a "how do I" question, or if we hire a new person, the needed information is already there. It's worth the money to be able to duplicate templates that contain information like that within the tasks.

Cons

Some of Asana's features are messy to use, so I go around them (e.g. the "Today," "Upcoming," sections of My Tasks). The problem: tasks that are assigned to me, and which I set for as "due today," unfortunately don't automatically appear in the "Today" section of My Tasks. That doesn't work for me, because moving there is an extra step that becomes inefficient when I'm managing hundreds of tasks. I use a work-around of creating a special project for each day, and then I add "due today" tasks into that day's project.

Organised team and projects.

Pros

Easy to use. Ensures our team is effective in managing ongoing and one-off projects with ease. The roles and permissions allow us to easily collaborate on projects without overwhelming everyone with too much information and too many notifications. The new Timeline (Gantt chart) allows us to visually see our milestones easily and spot possible risks. The app is easy to use. There are loads of great features - one of my favourites being the flying unicorn that appears when I complete a task. Hooray for mini-celebrations! With the help of zapier, our workflows are super automated.

Cons

The paid version is a little steep with larger teams, but well worth the cost. The custom template functionality needs a bit of love - we seem to need to make a bunch of adjustments every time we launch a template project.

Pros

Asana allows my team to not only manage their own projects, but communicate, collaborate, and support each other in their functions. It allows me, as a manager, to get a birds eye view of where the team is at. It also meshes well with Agile management.

Cons

This is another case where you get what you put into the software. I don't have any strong dislikes as long as a team member is willing to participate.

Pros

Communication with the team and the organization of the work process has never been so easy for me and my teammates. Asana has absolutely everything you need. There are a bunch of useful tools. Manage all the tasks and projects assigned to your team fast and smooth. Feel the maximum unity within the team. This seriously gave us a huge leap forward in productivity. Marking of goals, creating notes is a super convenient process. This is a truly multi-functional product that will cover all your blind spots in the workflow.

Cons

It must take a little time to start utilizing all the capabilities of Asana. So be prepared to spend a few moments of your life in order to start using this platform fluently. But don't be scared, It's not that hard.

I like the to-do lists and that we can share it with our teams easily and fast. Each projects have different team members assigned and it's great for organizing different projects and see all at once.

Cons

Sometimes, it doesn't load up on firefox and I believe this is technical issue and have sent feedback to their department couple times but still didn't heard back. Customer support might lack some.

Pros

I think the best thing about this program is the number of options available to users. You can use as little or as much as you need.

Cons

I was very hesitant to use the software as quickly as my peers. I regret not getting myself organized sooner.

Pros

There is no better tool to manage projects and tasks.
I was able to start using asana with little to non training since the tool is supper intuitive and user-friendly
The free tear was a great to start, and once your my team got to a point where we needed custom fields and tags it was really easy to upgrade and get all the extra features that made our work flow even better.
Lots of templates to get started designed by industry professional and we also made our own in house templates exclusive for our teams workflow
Asana is constantly adding new features and pushing updates which we find really helpful
Integartes really well with other tools (Google apps, time doctor, zapier, sales force, dropbox, etc )

Cons

There is not a lot that I don't like about Asana. They always roll out new features. There are some small stuff that I wish they'd improve like the ability to add your own way to sort your own Tasks and maybe ability to track time spend in a tasks inside the app with out having to get another tool like time doctor.
