Pros

This has been a great management tool for our company, the integration of comms has been great and has allowed us to cut down on mails as which has been amazing.
The paid version has some excellent functionality additions like dependencies and custom labels/tags, which can be really helpful.
Overall, I love that Asana is super easy to use, but also has more advanced features when you need them.

Pros

Great training sessions, flexible to our needs and great customer support. Only great things to say about this company.
I love that our organization uses this software as a tool for us to submit innovative ideas to improve our experiences and processes.
Their onboarding team was great in explaining how everything worked. Plus the ability to save the webexes for future use helped a lot.

Cons

The worst thing is that some resources are paid, which limits the use of the platform by people who cannot pay.
Sometimes tickets get lost or buried but I feel that this comes down to user error and workload management and is not so much a fault of ht software or design.
I find it very inconvenient that I can't copy tasks to another project on mobile. This is my only complaint about Asana.

Cons

Lack of mobile app development, slow development of product enhancements, lack of local (i.e. outside of USA) hosting options to reduce latency.
One issue we ran into was the inability to backdate projects.
The inability for Boolean logic in the rules engine is somewhat annoying but manageable.
