The best team management software I've used

2018-12-09

Also the insight into the efficiency of the team and where our efforts are being spent the most.

Pros

This gives us fantastic insight into my teams efficiency.

Cons

It does have a slight learning curve. With how powerful the software is, it's to be expected. Once you realize you can create custom fields and sections it opens a world of possibilities.

Love Asana for Group Collaboration and Project Management

2018-10-11

We've been able to have our team remain empowered and accountable by managing their own tasks and engaging team members if they need help. All of this is tracked within the system. Excellent tool!

Pros

The flexibility to add projects and tasks on the fly, easy assignments, tracking of due dates, inclusion of project deliverables/assets is amazing. Super easy to use and it takes about 5 minutes to get up to speed.

Cons

As a very busy team we have many projects on the go and it would be great to have programmatic insight into workload, conflicting dates/deliverables and timeframes.

Good Experience

2018-06-07

Pros

Multiple people can collaborate on the same project with ease. Do have free options for more number of users compared to other similar softwares. Can be used seemingly well for a small startup, with 10-15 employees. Best in this segment.

Cons

The free version can be for more members to join and collaborate, this can be real test and can show insights of how the product will scale for hundreds members colloborating at the same time concurrently.

Asana has elevated the efficiency across my agency and my clients' project management experience!

2017-12-12

We are delivering such a higher level of project management value to our clients and we've been able to infuse greater efficiency across our team because of how many customizable features the software has. We were previously using Basecamp for years and have almost switched to other platforms at least a dozen times. Basecamp has a lot of positives but lacked some key features (assigning recurring todos, easily allowing multiple people to follow a specific task, limiting calendar view/functions) and Asana is finally the platform that has it all.

Pros

I love the easy integration with google drive, the intuitive structure that is super easy for anyone to quickly grasp and the ability to customize unique views and dashboards so everyone gets the view and reporting and insights that matter most to them individually.

Cons

I don't like that adding a subtask in a project tile requires clicking the subtask icon. This is the one non-intutive or unnatural function to me. When I enter a tile within a project, I can just start typing and this feels like it should be adding a subtask but really it's entering a note in task list overall. I've messed this up several times!!! I think you should be able to add a subtask by just typing and adding a note should require clicking on an icon! It's backwards.

Pros

The tutorials offer great insight and open up any barriers to begin use.

Cons

Being exclusively online limits you. Sometimes I'd like to be able to just log in while offline, but it is not a major drawback.

Solid Project Management Tool

2018-05-04

Pros

I've used Asana for over 3 years and they have made significant upgrades over the years. I like that the free version is feature rich to get you started with the platform. However, I recommend upgrading, because it enables templates, custom fields, and timeline which greatly improve the tools functionality for managing projects.

Cons

The tool could do a much better job in reporting and dashboard level insights.

It is a very useful tool to manage tasks, is easy to use and has great communication capabilities

2018-02-14

We use the board and project views to give us an insight into what is happening on the project.

Pros

It is easy to set up tasks, assign them to people and communicate information to them. I like the fact that emails are generated when tasks are updated and all the discussion is kept within the tasks.

Cons

It has zero resource management which is a major drawback for a project manager. The reporting capabilities are very limited and I don't use them at all. I would prefer more options to filter tasks. I use 'incomplete' all the time, but would like to drill down. There is no in between status for tasks progress. It is not so easy to set priorities for tasks and then to sort them accordingly.

Very well rounded, full-featured task and project manager

2019-03-27

Overall it's been an invaluable tool for our team to keep track of tasks. The old way of sending an email asking someone to do something is history. Now it's as simple as creating a task in Asana and assigning it. There's not much more satisfying than hitting that check mark.

Pros

But if your organization is scaling, Asana has more features behind a pay wall that help to scale with you, like insights, timeline, and Portfolios.

Cons

It would be nice to be able to assign a task to more than one person. And another big one would be having a global view of all tasks across workspaces would be amazing.

The best task management I've used at work ever

2018-05-04

Pros

It's a nice overview and insight into our production levels.

Cons

Nothing to complain about. I miss the unicorns! But in all seriousness, I don't like the weird buggyness you get when you connect Okta with Asana.

Asana - where visualization meets enterprise project management

2018-07-28

Pros

It gives greater visibility, encourages collaboration, especially as the development processed is compressed and dynamic, whereby real-time insights are made actionable.

Cons

They've addressed this through the expanded breadth of integrations/ API's with enterprise apps and creative toolsets.

Easy to use, great for accountability

2018-03-28

Our company has increased our ability to provide clients with deliverables. We have been able to say we meet deadlines. We also have not sacrificed quality and have been given the ability to focus on that rather than focusing on tasks/timelines.

Pros

They provide a lot of insight into how to use/customize the software for your organization.

Cons

It was hard to find information on the premium version in a way that showed me exactly what it did. Eventually, a person contacted me by email and provided me with a webinar, but I couldn't find the same webinar on their site which was a little frustrating. Their customer support has gotten better, but it still needs a little work (chat is great, but would love a dedicated account director). Still lacks features that other PM software has which I would like. I know it's coming soon though. I rated lower on Features/Functionality and Value for Money because I think those go hand in hand. The Free version was fine for us except I wanted more. If there were more features I think it would be more worth the money. As it stands, you could take or leave the premium version. Among peers, I usually recommend the Free version and implementing that before moving towards the Premium version. I did that for about 6 months before committing to Premium.
