Asana is our primary project management tool

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: My overall experience has been great with Asana. It's super simple to use and the visual representations of the projects/tasks we're working on makes it easy for others to interpret what we're doing.

Pros:

The thing I like most about Asana is that it's dead simple to use for me and our team. It's drag and drop and visually easy to use.

Cons:

The learning curve is not steep but not short if you don't comprehend the ideas around time/project management.

Alternatives Considered:

If you’re losing track of projects by not using a Project Management System, You need ASANA!

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: I became a certified asana pro when I was first starting out as a virtual assistant I think it’s such a powerhouse platform that can really manage projects and milestones I highly recommend it for both personal and professional use.

Pros:

I love the ability to use this platform for both internal projects and client facing updates, I work on several teams where we can easily move the project to the next person once it goes through each phase until final approvals are complete. It streamlines the workflow and allows for us to share necessary information to complete each tasks.

Cons:

I think it can be easily used improperly which can lead to missed deadlines/communications I think it could have some better resources for agencies.

Asana is like a diet - it'll probably work, if you manage to stick with it

3.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Asana is a great project management too - if you can be bothered to open and check it everyday. I'm not entirely sure what it is about Asana, but in 3 of my previous 4 roles that used Asana, we abandoned it within a month. There's just something about it (maybe visually?) that does not keep us coming back. Perhaps it's the way we're using it, but then again, I wouldn't want to spend ages learning how to make it perfect. Basically, its okay if you can stick with it.

Pros:

Asana is a great project management tool. It has all the tasks and projects laid out. You can assign people roles, tasks, projects, and deadlines. It makes for a systematic Monday morning meeting run-through of what needs to be done operationally. And it's great for the planning stages, too.

Cons:

Asana is not great with visualing the project (instead of just listing it). As a visual person, I don't enjoy seeing rows and rows of bunched-up text. Maybe there's a way around that, but I also can't be bothered to spend time learning it. There are also some very unnecessarily complicated methods of setting up projects, or at least my previous boss always made a mess of doing so in the correct place, making it difficult for us to find where the task assigned to our name fitted in the grand scheme of things. So perhaps clearer guidance within the site would be better (rather than us having to rely on YouTube tutorials).

A fabulous software we cannot live without

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Really excellent from start to finish, it syncs easily with our Google calendar workspaces, our time tracking softwares, it has helped our business grow, get organised and far more efficient. It's invaluable and we love it also from a personal organisation point of view now as well as professionally.

Pros:

Clarity and ease of adding tasks, the app works super well on the go too for this, adding in particular features specific to projects, easy scheduling and assigning of tasks, view settings, the kamban boards, gantt views and goal setting and linking capabilities. It's really intuitive and we love it.

Cons:

The work flow setting up is tricky to master if you're not already good at that sort of thing and it would be great to be able to download the gantt charts and calendars to share with people not required on our Asana platform but otherwise it's really well supported, the education is excellent and we love it.

Asana is streamlining how tasks, workflows and projects are managed.

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Asana experience is just fantastic and amazing. It is a product worth purchasing for managing workflows and projects.

Pros:

Firstly, I love not only the simplicity but also the robustness that comes with Asana. I am able to manage and be in track with all my tasks and projects as well as communicate and collaborate with workmates simultaneously without experiencing hitches. Asana is easily accessible and allows for remote working. Available for both smartphones, Pcs and web.

Cons:

I have not come across a problem worth addressing, Asana has high usability and provides fantastic results.
