Functional Team Efficiency

2019-03-05

Overall we decided to go with another company but did like a few of the features that Asana had to offer.

Pros

We did find that the layout helped maintain focus for some employees when using it.

Cons

Didn't particularly like the timeline flow chart.

Great Team Communications Hub

2016-10-03

We have used Asana both internally and with external clients for over two years. We are able to keep all our files, notes, links, and documents in one place. The log functionality showing everything that has been done within a project or task is a great asset for someone jumping into the middle of a product.

Pros

Smooth interface Powerful functionality and integrations Central tool for team communication and task management

Cons

No workflow - though I see free flow as a great thing.

2018-08-01

Organization

Pros

The easy flow of work and visual aids, and I have to say the flow charts are the most useful to clear any project.

Cons

Sometimes on the mobile app it could get more specific for the flow chart. Depending on the mobile device: tablet or mobile.

Great Project Management Tool

2019-03-18

Very positive experience since the work flow is intuitive.

Pros

This is great software if you wanted to avoid strings of emails about projects. It serves as our central repository for files and all tasks have due dates which holds the team accountable.

Cons

The software was a bit harder to use on my mobile device even though they have a full featured App.

Easy to use and visualize

2018-07-11

Client flow through the pipeline is the best feature for us.

Pros

I appreciate the 2 views possible for a project. The board view is being used by our team to monitor the sales pipeline and then onboarding of clients.

Cons

I would prefer to make a template with check-off boxes but it not appear to all be uncompleted tasks.

Asana Review

2018-10-17

This app really lets you do as much or as little as you need to do when it comes to using it. It's a really helpful little app!

Pros

I like that the home screen is my tasks to do and I don't have to login and navigate to get to it.

Cons

The work flow setup seems a bit tedious though I'm not quite sure how they would get around this.

Asana Didn't Work For My Team

A good product in a crowded market

2019-01-31

I have been happy with my experience. The free trial gives you enough to make a decision on spending the money for the full version or not.

Pros

Asana makes it very easy to assign projects and tasks to yourself or other team members.

Cons

Some type of flow chart would help make this software better for large projects.

Best Tool to Assign and Monitor Tasks for Team

2018-11-27

I have a team of 15+ members, so it can take so much time if i assign and monitor everyone's task individually. Asana helping me to keep everyone at the same place, giving reminders to them for their tasks and notifying me by notifications if anyone make changes, so best tool for assigning tasks and monitoring it.

Pros

At one place, i can assign, remove or add tasks and subtasks for each member of team or whole team together. Also, if anyone makes any changes, it gives me notification, so i don't need to check the tool frequently, that saves a lot of time.

Cons

It is helping me to smooth down the work flow of my projects, so there is nothing to dislike at this moment.

asana is great for working with remote coworkers

2018-11-30

when working with a team remotely, i can't imagine working without it.

Pros

it's great way of organizing work-flow with other workers and keeping up to date with projects.

Cons

it is a bit tricky to get used to at first, it has automatic functions which are a bit confusing at first but are greatly beneficial once you get used to them.

Great Task Management for the Price

2018-05-04

Pros

Asana is very user-friendly. No intimidating learning curve. For small organizations, or teams, looking to organize their workflow, this is a great option.

Cons

I just feel there's other options out there which are more visually-appealing (i.e. Flow). However, others are more expensive.

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

Disappointed about ownership of information

2018-05-07

I selected ASANA instead, that I liked more and has the same price.

Pros

They got back to me very promptly when asking information on line and over email. And I appreciate their honesty in explaining how it works.

Cons

That they could not delete my personal details and account. They could only deactivate it. I find it absurd that the person cannot request to have their information deleted. This may also be the case with other softwares, in which case, that is also unacceptable to me.

A bit clunky, but does the job as a task management tool for teams

2018-07-23

Pros

It's a capable task management system that checks all the boxes. You can tag other users to loop them in and assign tasks, you can set up subtasks underneath projects, leave comments, etc. It's also cheap for small teams.

Cons

I don't think it's better than Asana at anything, and Asana is free for up to 15 people.

Very Strong Project Mangement Software - Similar to Asana

2018-03-12

Pros

Reminds me of Asana. Has a little bit more than we need but still has a really strong design.

No free plan available for small teams. Good design and easy to use. They just launched a new version of the product which is worth trying out.

More streamlined than Trello, much easier than Jira, much faster than Asana

2017-01-25

Trello had become unwieldy (due dates were getting missed, I was spending more time organising than working, notification overload etc.) and I've used Asana + Jira before and they're awful.

Pros

* An effective workflow * Helped us manage lots of parallel projects * Less time spent organising, more time working * Good support

Cons

* It took us a while to try and bend it in different ways, I recommend reading about why features work the way they do - it'll make things a lot clearer.

Intuitive project management for teams

2017-06-15

It's easier to delegate tasks. It's easier to decide what to do next. It's easier to know what other team members are working on.

Pros

Flow is one of the best collaborative tools to help follow that methodology. Asana is arguably better, but it is so weak in the way it displays the list of projects, that we moved to Flow's premium monthly fee away from Asana's free option.

Cons

For us, Flow could probably improve in the following areas: - Keeping discussions separate from tasks and projects so that they can be retrieved later. "What did we say about that thing???" - Deeper integration of the Getting Things Done principles, with an easy way to add estimated energy required to perform that task, how much time it would require and what context it needs to be performed in ("Do I need to be at my desk to do this thing?," "Remind me to pick up notepads when I am running errands", etc.)
