Great Project Management

Solving project management challenges with remote employees and it works well for this!

Pros

Asana has a very slick UI and is very easy to use on multiple platforms.

Cons

Sometimes it is difficult to find things inside of the system - not very visual but more list-based.

Keeps my workflow organized and projects on schedule!

Pros

As a freelance writer, I use Asana daily to help manage my projects and keep track of my billable hours. I love how easy it is to set up and organize my workload and it keeps me motivated! I also like being able to share my project boards

Cons

Asana works really well for development and managing smaller teams, but the kanban view isn't for everyone. The timeline feature takes a little getting used to.

A must to-do-list app!

The best to-do-list app on the market!

Pros

In my current occupation, being organized is the key to being successful and also being productive. I've tried a lot of different softwares/apps to keep be organized, and I have to say that Asana is the best so far. It has helped me prioritize my tasks and keep me on track. I definitely recommend Asana as it is very easy to use and navigate.

Cons

I don't have any issues to report. Since I've been using it, the design has been revisited which has made it more appealing and intuitive.

Great Tool for Group Collaboration

Asana was overall really great to use. It's easy, intuitive, and simple.

Pros

I loved how easy it was to make new projects and work with other people. Easily see where everyone else is with all their tasks and what the overall status of the project is.

Cons

The only thing I was really missing from Asana that another app did better was recurring tasks.

Asana keeps me sane

Pros

Everything. It is my day to day planner - without it I'm not sure my days would go as smooth. I love being able to tie it to my gmail account as well. It works extremely well for my projects.

Cons

Sometimes it can be a little clunky to get around and hard to figure out what some templates can and cant do.

A versatile free version that's perfect for small teams

This is simply THE best project management and communication tool for small shops. The free version far exceeds what other products offer.

Pros

It's easy to set up, easy to use, and the free version is loaded with helpful features for small teams. I have also found that

Cons

Asana hasn't enabled multi-user logins (for the free version) so if you are a freelancer who work with small clients, you can't really use the software for multiple clients seamlessly.

Great way to work on projects as a team!

Asana has made working on projects as a team easier and managing multiple projects at a time less stressful.

Pros

We have used a couple of different programs and methods to work on projects within my team. Asana by far has been my favorite! It's easy to track progress and work together on deadlines. Sharing information for a project has become seamless And made collaborating smooth.

Cons

I have not been using it long so I haven't pinpointed any cons yet. So far, it's been user friendly and I have no conplaints!

Asana makes project management easy for everyone

Overall, Asana is great and easy-to-use. I'd definitely recommend it to any team for managing projects. Just beware – it's possible for things to fall through the cracks (as it is with any software).

Pros

I love how easy it is to assign and create tasks. Managing scrums through Asana is easier than it is in other programs, via Gantt charts, etc.

Cons

I do dislike the way that tasks can fall off of the face of the earth if you assign them to someone who's inactive or less active than you.

Good free software

I mostly enjoyed using Asana. It was easy to get started, create teams, give people assignments, but I've used better project management software -- I guess you get what you pay for.

Pros

Doesn't have a huge startup cost and it's easy to get started using it right away.

Cons

I found the Asana software to have limited features. It could have been because I was using the free version.

Reliable teamwork tool

Pros

For teamwork, we use the web service Asana. Using the platform, you can manage projects and tasks, it also supports the function of exchanging documentation within the system. Implemented the function of attaching files from Google Drive and Dropbox, that is, there is not even the need to integrate with these services - everything works fine in conjunction.

Cons

I sorely lack the ability to manage resources and documents. There is also a tool for predictive analytics.

Great Collaborative Project Management Software

I began using Asana a few years ago when I started with my current company. I have found that it does have a lot of great features but there is a big learning curve and it's not as intuitive as I would like. There are many times I find myself frustrated because Asana doesn't do quite what I would like it to. However, as a whole I think it's a successful project management option and does have far more pros than cons.

Pros

Asana allows a team to work together and communicate to manage multiple projects at the same time.

I like the ability to create a project for a client and then make various tasks for different work that needs to be done. Subtasks can be created and everything can have different dates and people who it have been assigned to.

Cons

There is an issue with creating recurring tasks with subtasks. This is very inconvenient when I want to have a recurring task's subtask have a different date. I end up with multiple items showing up in my tasks.

Functional service for teamwork

Pros

We use the online service Asana for team work on tasks. The platform allows you to make a to-do list for each day. Customizable dashboards are available. Kanban boards are supported. You can structure projects using sections.

Cons

I carefully studied all the functions and settings and realized that the system does not have the Gantt charts that I need so much; the function for estimating and cost accounting is not supported. It is also frustrating that it is impossible to exchange messages and files with colleagues, and also the system of predictive analytics is not available.

Creative, interactive and functional to organize and plan your projects.

The experience is extraordinary, it leaves me pleased with its graphic and visual qualities as well as its ability to manage time and planning, the services and options offered exceeded my expectations and it is very useful to monitor and follow up projects that require a job in a very complete team.

Pros

I really like the ability of the tools offered and their visual qualities that allow to interact better with the platform and workspace, its most powerful factor is the control and management of the ideal time to track the progress of each project that is in full execution It is very effective to work in a group and to control those who manage the group of my organization.

Cons

Some steps of its implementation were complex to execute, the task of integrating Asana to other applications was difficult for me, the tool of leaving predesigned templates for the work group should improve since it left me a little unsatisfied.

Asana Review

I like Asana overall because I can organize my tasks when I'm working on a team and easily attach files that show my work progress and what I've done. It's also easy to log in if i' working from home.

Pros

I like being able to track my work progress and attach files.

Cons

The limit of how many team members can be added to the free version.

Use Asana for team work plans

We used for a comprehensive design project in the final year. We also had much limited time. So it was easier in scheduling, Assigning and planning the tasks among us using Asana.

Pros

Integration with google drive. It is easy to create and add people in the project. Can connect the job easily. The immediate notifications are cool in Asana.

Cons

Much costly compared to few other tools in the market

Great but can be expensive!

Asana helps us effectively delegate tasks across our team and track our progress on tasks without dropping any balls.

Pros

This software helps maintain our work-flow across a large team. It increases our efficiency and also our accuracy.

Cons

The software becomes cost-prohibitive for teams with more than 15 users.

Not Easy For Team Projects

Impossible for business, OK for personal.

Pros

We're able to break things down by project and by urgency.

Cons

You can only assign each task to one person—making it impossible to work on things as a team. Also, there isn't an easy way to see tasks as once they are added as a sub-task to a current task.

A simple on the surface but surprisingly complex task management tool.

Very positive. Was a heavy Trello user in the past (another great product) but Trello did feel very limited in it's capabilities. Asana works much better for a busy agency environment.

Pros

The key feature that I like is the ability to set of different boards for each client and also boards that relate to specific areas of our business and be able to tie them all together. Also the MOBILE APP. The design has been brilliantly thought out and it's just as powerful as the full desktop version. No watering down but still just as easy to use.

Cons

In parts, it gets overly complex. This is not a huge complaint because I just choose not to use the features that I find too complex, but some of our team members have requested we use dependencies and a few of the other features and that's when it becomes too much work to keep everything in order.
