Asana is the #1 G2 Grid for Work Management and Project Management

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Without a doubt, Asana collaboration tool is excellent. It helps teams in managing all kinds of tasks. The vast capabilities and flexibility of Asana gave me amazing experience that really worth the effort it takes me to get started.

Pros:

- The easy to use interface of Asana results in a much better user experience. I finds navigating Asana easily with its easy user interface combined with its intuitive design. - Efficient and well organized task management feature. With Task Management feature in Asana, I find it very easy to prioritize tasks. - Collaboration focused Project Management software that allows you to invite other users to their different digital workplaces. - Expansive integration with a lot of other project management applications like the Microsoft Teams, Google Drive, and Slack. - Dependencies are easily managed with the timeline view - Modern, fast, and flexible design - Asana management collaboration tool is feature-rich - Capable, great and functional free version

Cons:

- Asana doesn't have project tracking features - Limited assignments. Just a user is assigned to a task at a time. this is a great pitfall for Asana team collaboration tool. - Simple tasks feel somehow overwhelming as a result of its numerous features. - Asana needs a wealth of experience to use it, despite its ease of use - Asana tool is a bit on the high side than competitors - Not suitable for graphics-intensive project

Asana: The Best Way to Stay Organized

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: I really like the features that Asana offers. I especially appreciate the ability to create tasks and subtasks, as well as the option to add attachments to tasks. This makes it easy to keep track of everything that needs to be done for a project. Additionally, I love being able to assign tasks to specific people and set due dates.

Pros:

I love how Asana is always up to date with the latest features and updates. It makes it easy to keep track of all my tasks and projects in one place. Plus, the support is amazing! They are always quick to respond to any questions or concerns I have.

Cons:

I don't like that Asana doesn't have an undo button. Sometimes I make a mistake and need to undo it, but I can't. I have to start all over again. Or it's hidding in a not so logical place....

Other options out there

Comments: I didn't use Asana when our company first started using it, so I'm not sure how it was set up or all of the possibilities it could bring to the table. I'm not sure about the price either, but for what I used it for it worked. It wasn't great, but it wasn't awful. I think it's a good middle-tier option when it comes to project/task management.

Pros:

Asana worked for us to get tasks done and track the progress of projects and it was easy to use.

Cons:

It wasn't as in-depth as other platforms I've used (zendesk, wrike, monday, etc.). We couldn't keep track of upcoming projects or have a dashboard with only our own tasks in it to stay organized and get a quick snapshot of what needs to be done.

Comments: Good! Asana is not as difficult to get the hand out with. I did manage to set-up all my tasks and projects personally. Though, I haven't used it for a long time when I did tested Monday.com.

Pros:

I can bet in all of Asana's features from Task management, Scheduling, Materials management, Gantt Charts, Collaborations and the likes. Save for time tracking which is not (yet) available. The Free Pricing however, is generous enough to collaborate with up to 10 or 15 more individuals. Other top PMS has less to nothing - or just one user allowed.

Cons:

User Interface. Asana needs to improve on there user interface to be at par with Monday.com. I've been using Monday and never looked back (except maybe if someday they will overrun Monday with features. Time Tracking. This one matters for some users, specially freelancers and online nomads alike. Just wondering why this wasn't integrated just yet. Set-up. It wasn't that easy to get started for non-techie users. So patience a virtue. Though PMS are understandably complicated, Monday take the pie in this domain.
