Asana overview

What is Asana?

Asana is a work management solution that enables team collaboration and communication. Use Asana to manage initiatives, create projects, and then to create tasks within these projects. Assign tasks to your teammates, add them as task followers, share projects with them, or mention them in task comments to keep everyone in the loop.

Asana removes the need for spreadsheets and email in order to collaborate and communicate around projects. Share notes on task descriptions and upload attachment to tasks, follow and search public tasks, combine related tasks with one click, organize tasks by priority, establish your workflow, receive notifications on updates and task completions, and add due dates to tasks. You then receive notifications for all tasks you're assigned, work you care about, or projects you're a member of in your Asana Inbox.

Asana enables teams to plan, organize, and track the progress of each teammates tasks. The multiple workspaces give you a place to organize multiple teams, projects and tasks and to stay updated on progress without the need for back-and-forth email threads.

The Asana mobile app for iOS and Android provides access to Asana no matter where you are. You can also add and access data in Asana programmatically through a simple REST API.

Asana for Client Social Media Project Management

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-03-19
Review Source: Capterra

It's our go-to project management tool for client social media work. We are a remote team so we need a cloud-based tool to keep everything organized and it does just that. Love the mobile app as well.

Pros
Asana has been a huge asset for our team. We can break client work down and keep it all orderly in one place with great updates.

Cons
Sometimes I get to many emails! Takes time to go in and identify who should get what alerts and updates.

Response from Asana

My Asana Review (Brasilcap)

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-06-22
Review Source: Capterra

I am happy with it overall, but then i am a heavy user. I see that other team members take sometime to assimilate its potential and value

Pros
Once you know where to go, it's show great use on promoting transparency and team collaboration

Cons
Lack of reports Scrum/Kanban likes. A Query engine would be superb. I use these at Jira and helps a lot. Also some constraints vallidation, configuration/confirmation os necessary fields, things like that

Easy to use and quite straightforward

Review Source: Capterra

The first thing I find it very useful is that it helps a lot to manage my time and set priorities for different tasks. Because of its ability to be in different projects features, it will be quite handy for the ones who involve in different teams of a company like HR, Project Management.

Pros
It's quite easy to use and it has helped me a lot to keep track of my daily tasks. I find it very satisfying to complete the tasks right after i finish them. It is also handy for the management team to review everyone's tasks and how they're doing at the end of the day. It has already got essential features for task management even in free version, but I'd love to go premium later.

Cons
I hope it could provide more features like insights and trends in free version. But it is still okay to see the general insights of your work.

A god-send for getting us organized

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2020-07-09
Review Source: Capterra

We have a lot of different marketing activations spread over various time periods and across multiple brands we own. Being able to organize all of this effectively and keep everyone on schedule has been a tremendous help and has saved us countless hours of time. We use this tool daily to keep everyone on track, and I couldn't be happier with the results.

Pros
Powerful tagging and search functions make it very simple to keep track of our myriad marketing activations and all their associated deliverables. Adding subtasks and including collaborators on tasks makes it very easy to keep track of who needs to do what and by when. Various views like lists, calendars, and kanban boards make it accessible to everyone on the team who thinks and processes information differently. The UX is clean and simple, and the 'my tasks' and 'inbox' features help us all keep track of what's happening in our assigned areas.

Cons
The only con I have is that there is somewhat of a steep learning curve for some of the more advanced features, and there's some serious thinking and heavy lifting required to get everything laid out and organized in the tool and then get everyone onboarded. However, I think this is likely going to be the case with any team adopting a project management tool.

Free version is already great, it is even better when you upgrade

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-05-05
Review Source: Capterra

I have been using Asana for many years, when I need to refer to a good and useful tool for managing project, I always say Asana. Moreover the free version offers all the needed basic features, it is impressive.

Pros
The clean UI, the board and custom fields.

Cons
Subtasks management (mostly in the board view) because too much click to reach them and no overall view (no nice hierarchical view with parents and child tasks).

Response from Asana

Benefits

• Organize your work into shared projects as lists or kanban boards for your initiatives, meetings, and programs.

• Use Timeline, a Gantt-style view, to see how each piece of your project fits together so you can start projects on the right foot and hit your deadlines.

• Keep the same task in multiple projects to show work in different contexts without duplicating efforts.

• Prevent accidental changes to your projects or templates by allowing certain project members to make only task comments, while still giving them access to information in the project.

• Comment directly on a task, to clarify exactly what needs to be done, and mention teammates or other work in Asana so everyone and everything stay connected. Quickly acknowledge tasks with pre-populated quick responses.

• Share the current state of the project with stakeholders and populate Portfolios with this information.

• Use My Tasks to plan your day with a prioritized to-do list.

• Track all your initiatives with project Portfolios. Portfolios show you the real-time status, priority, and progress of all your projects, so you have an accurate view of how you’re tracking toward your goals.

• See any list of tasks on a Calendar to get a clear view of when work is due.

• Create teams to organize your projects and connect teammates with a shared calendar and conversations. You can also control team privacy settings.

• Limit access to any project, create hidden teams for sensitive work, or make public teams and projects for access by your entire organization.

• Designate Organization admins who can add, remove, and manage members and their settings, and enforce password complexity. Asana Enterprise customers have additional controls with SAML and our Admin API.

• Integrate with other tools your team already uses, like G Suite, Slack, Microsoft, Chrome, Github, and more.

• Asana's mobile app helps you track work and stay up to date on the go. Just like the web app, you can use it to create tasks and projects, have conversations about them, and get updates on their progress on and offline.
