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.

Best Platform for Project/Team Management

Initially it was a bit overwhelming to set up and sort through all of the features and uses, but once you work with your team and figure out a system it is hands down the most useful and intuitive workspace / task management platform. There are always new features and integrations to be learned which is great to experiment and use as you grow with the platform.

An Advanced Version of Trello

Overall, we have been very pleased with Asana. From a team project management standpoint and for keeping individual tasks organized and prioritized, Asana is a step up from Trello. I would recommend this for distributed teams working on various projects (with or without other business unites) who are looking to get and stay organized.

Good Startup Project Management Tool

It was a very good tool to use, highly user friendly, quite effective and very visually attractive. This tool is great for startups in my opinion and the price is fair for the features it has.

There are always new features and integrations to be learned which is great to experiment and use as you grow with the platform.

Pros

The best part about Asana is how customizable it is in so many different facets, you can really tailor it to the needs of your specific team and project. The amount of functions that it has and its ability to integrate other apps and services within it makes it extremely versatile and intelligent once you customize it to all of your needs. I also enjoy that there is a mobile app version.

Cons

With all of its endless functionality tools - it can be a bit daunting in setting up the ideal layout and structure of use for your team. There are so many options and features that can make the software seem almost too sophisticated and complicated for everyday use. Not exactly user friendly up front, but once you figure it out and are patient in working out tailoring your workspace it is very useful and covers all bases.

Overall, we have been very pleased with Asana. From a team project management standpoint and for keeping individual tasks organized and prioritized, Asana is a step up from Trello. I would recommend this for distributed teams working on various projects (with or without other business unites) who are looking to get and stay organized.

Pros

Asana operates similarly to a Trello board, but has more features and functionality, making it a better investment for teams and individual contributors. Asana enables you to both track tasks along a customizable set of groups and track/prioritize tasks for individuals and teams. Not only that, Asana's interface makes it easy to have and store conversations pertaining to project success with real-time alerts when a new comment is added. It has made working with my team and other business units much easier!

Cons

Asana does have some limited functionality that can result in lengthy conversations within each project "card." Because you are unable to link text, you must paste the full URL, which can get messy when you are adding 5-10 URLs to outside pages/docs/etc. We also cannot add rich text features like tables, which would prevent us from creating a GoogleDoc with the table and adding the link to the text thread. Small inconveniences, but inconveniences nonetheless.

We love Asana and tell people about all of the functions within it that allow us to streamline most of our work and communication.

Pros

Asana is so diverse in it's functions that it meets all kinds of organizational and communication needs. We use it at our church for simple tasks lists, meeting follow-up tasks, small to large team projects as well as having long-term groups distinctions within Asana to create projects within. There's even a great feature that allows you to keep ongoing conversations and document links within specific tasks or project teams.

I even have a separate folder within my Asana username for personal tasks and projects for my family, so all the distinctions are helpful.

Cons

Asana is getting easier and easier to use with time and the developers have been making it more intuitive, but it was harder to figure out than a couple other project managers we tried.

It was a very good tool to use, highly user friendly, quite effective and very visually attractive. This tool is great for startups in my opinion and the price is fair for the features it has.

Pros

I like how user friendly it is, the aesthetics (looks), it's very neat and colorful at the same time, it provides a good option for organization and I think it's a good tool for startups, it makes planning, task assignment, tracking and registering much easier.

Cons

I think the software is amazing but it lacks some features seen on more robusts tools such as Zoho Projects, still, this tool can integrate with other small tools that can give you access to Gantt Charts or timelines, etc. The problem is you have to pay for those additional integrations.

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.
