Fantastic program for collaboration and productivity tracking with project management capabilities

2020-04-24

It excels at task management. Easy to use.

Pros

However, if you buy the premium or business version, it is billed annually per user and you get access to more options such as timeline viewer, customizable dashboards, custom forms and fields, milestones, and for managers an admin control panel.

Cons

It doesn't have document editing, time tracking or live chat but there are many other program integrations to get this done.

Good for general task management, note taking

2016-11-03

Additional functions make it rather deep, such as being able to crosspost tasks to multiple projects and have granular levels of permission. Their strong involvement with an avid developer community extends Asana to be far broader than its functions out of the box.

Pros

Many permission options.

Cons

Not made for project management (lack of time tracking features). Permission options are nice but can become a security risk.

Asana - Lots of Positives but poor Gantt Charts

2020-01-24

Instagantt has a much better UI & UX

Pros

Cloud based project management tool that is simple to use and integrates with a third party app called instagantt.

Best Project/Task Management Tool

2016-11-03

Also, its abbility to integrate with many different third-party apps lets you create the digital environment that your team needs: You can connect it with InstaGantt to get dynamic Gantt Diagrams of your entire project, use it with Everhour, Harvest or WorkingOn to track and report time on every task, integrate it with Slack or Hipchat to push task updates and conversations into your chat channels... and even connect it with feedback bugtracking tools like TrackDuck and Usersnap.

Pros

- Cloud collaboration - Third-party Integrations - Easy to learn - Flexible - Mobile App - Offers a free plan - Pro plans very affordable - Really nice UI

Cons

- Ir could be a little bit faster on the browser - It would be great if they'd offer a Desktop App for offline syncing.

Overall good experience, mobile experience can be better

2018-01-15

Task management, team collaboration, access anywhere, anytime, any device.

Pros

I like being notified when my tasks are becoming overdue. The comments feature is definitely useful to collaborate between multiple team members.

Cons

Overall the experience on web is good. On mobile it took me some time to figure out how to use all the features, not too hard but need to explore.

Asana Review

2018-10-13

Not great - seemed to cause more problems than it resolved when collaborating - this might be due to to lack of usage understanding by colleagues (in particular those lacking a technical mindset) but to be honest - not great.

Pros

As a collaboration and task management, sharing and collaboration tool - it does what it says on the tin.i would describe it as a reasonable task management tool.

Cons

Too many email notifications and after a while ditched it and company decided to use Trello instead.

Good all-in-one solution if you're willing to go all-in

2017-12-20

Pros

- Attractive interface - Integrates well with most Agile development methodologies - Responsive collaboration tools

Cons

- Too many features distracts from core functionality of project management. Native messaging and notifications are redundant if your organisation already has other solutions for those facilities. - List format for projects result in a lot of clutter

A Darn Good Digital Checklist For Better Project Management And Productivity!

2018-10-24

It's a great project management tool that helps teams communicate crucial details to increase productivity and streamline workflow. It acts as a digital checklist and has certainly replaced my need for a written notepad!

Pros

I love that Asana provides email notifications on upcoming or completed projects.

Cons

For example, I invited someone to my Asana workspace who did not accept the invite but who's email I'm unable to clear from my workspace.

Good Project Management Tool

2020-03-30

It also has a better designed interface than some of the other project management tools out there.

Pros

Good interface design makes it easy to see and distinguish what's happening in the tool.

Cons

Simplicity of the tool that helps in grasping and understanding it quickly decreases some functionality and customizability in other project management software tools.
