Pros: I like that the tasks at hand can be easily collaborated on through one single feature. Due dates can be put on a calendar. the UX is nice and clean.

Cons: There can be initial excessive emailing. I also wish that there could be an option for calendar sharing. (Like, can it be shared with a google calendar?) I know this is also a human thing, but what can incentivize team members to continue using Asana throughout their product management time?

Pros: Asana continues to add to its platform, its latest boards feature opens up new possibilities for managing projects.
Asana is great at letting you nest subtasks and still add in depth information about them.
Asana scales to any organization size I have been in.

Cons: Asana can be slow to load initially. It takes a minute to show up. This really only happens once a day, it just is noticeable in a world where applications load so quickly.

Pros: It makes project management very easy non-technology users. Bringing transparency to our workload. All project requests come to one single place where we can view them, then making it easy assigning to someone, add due dates, and monitor progress.

Cons: No proper task scheduling
users, not receiving email notifications, may be available to premium members

Overall: It made our project management looks very easy now, not our team, many teams in our office use this software for PM.

Great way to manage projects, assignments and track progress - we used it for our marketing tasks.

Pros: It definitely has the best features you can wish for a productive app. Even the free version includes lots of useful features and a great UI that helps you see the progress of your team.

Cons: It could become slightly complicated if you're used to other simple productivity apps. Asana is a little different from others and therefore, you need to learn how to use it best first.

Pros: That everyone on the team can have a quick snapshot of where a project is at all times. It also helps to assign tasks in meetings as we go.

Cons: I would like a better prioritization tool. I would also like a project health tool to have a quick overview of how the team feels the project is going.

Pros: I love being able to take emails and sum them up in specific tasks in Asana. I can then prioritize my daily tasks and longer term projects.
Working with interns was a breeze being able to assign them tasks and track their progress without getting lost in a sea of emails.

Cons: I have been a user for a long time, and was waiting for greater mobile platforms. There have recently been updates, specifically for iPad, and my concerns were rectified. I love it.

Overall: I can quickly move through emails, and assign each a specific task if it needs follow up. Then I can prioritize and get to work. I work remotely, so this helps me to track all of my work, and to sort it by project, and to tangibly see all my deadlines so I don't let something fall through the cracks.

I love Asana

Pros: I really like Asana. It is a great project management tool for my team and I. It keeps us very organized.

Cons: Asana is great for my team but it has a bit of a learning curve for my clients. So I use two project managers. One for my clients and one for my team. :(

Pros: - Recurring tasks have been quite important for us
- Being able to use color-coded custom tags is fantastic
- Answering comments through email has been helpful before, as has being able to click on the task in email and get taken directly to the task
- Getting an email for someone liking a task seems like an unnecessary standard setting
- I enjoyed receiving emails with tips on how to use Asana, not just new features

Cons: - Boards can only be used in project view and not on a variety of views
- Paid version at something like $5 a user beyond the capacity of non-profits/smaller orgs
- Cannot revert workspace to personal once accidentally changed to domain team
- Should be able to adjust notifications for people who are 'following'. Maybe I don't necessarily want them to be bothered about it, but still show up on their Asana dashboard
- Easier integration into Slack would be great for the creation of tasks on the go

Overall: Already mentioned in the section about what I liked about the product. It's been a principle source of organization and ordering for my team.

Pros: I have been able to add my team to different projects so that they stay organized and on track with their responsibilities. We have never had any issues with it.

Overall: Organization for my entire team. The team is able to see the tasks that need accomplished and they can assign/delegate them to the proper team member. If a team member is out then they are able to complete tasks for them so they don't fall behind.

Pros: Asana is a fun and easy to use Project management software. I know it doesn't really matter nut I really like the colors of the setup. I like the feature that allows you to create different dashboards. It is easy to set up notifications and alerts to keep you on target.

Cons: Although the software has a mobile app I would like to see more features on the mobile app. The app is good to stay on top of things but I found it a little hard to make changes.

Overall: This is a great way to track projects and it helps you ask the right questions.

Comments: So while the task management was effectively in place, I had a real hard time getting my team members to engage - ultimately we realized that all we needed was Slack. So I'd just ask yourself what you need the tool to do.

Pros: I liked the options available for my team. It was easy to stay organized, and it was easy to track progress toward a given goal.

Cons: For a detail-oriented person like myself, I found Asana accessible. However, I found that a number of members of my team had trouble getting engaged. There were too many barriers between them and communication with other members.

Pros: + Excellent Android app (beware of the product for iOS)
+ Free of charge, if you do not need to run a large team into the project.
+ intuitive, smart interface
+ Configurable task repetition settings.
+ Hot keys support

Cons: - No project templates
- No push to the browser
- Not the best visual layout. something like DropTask

Overall: I worked as a marketing consultant for some time and managed to manage up to ten projects with Asana at the same time. This service helps to virtually eliminate the work with e-mail and work much more efficiently. People in my team know exactly what to do and when to do it. My clients know exactly what is happening with their projects. And I know how to plan my day. Communication is directly related to tasks and results - this is really important.

Pros: The ability to make special custom fields and the ability to set up email/automation to hook in with many other apps allows us to make highly customized and specific job workflows.

Cons: There is occasional downtime and since we reply so heavily on the product it can really effect workflow for that day.

Overall: We have been able to organize our projects in a much more trackable and scalable way. We have been able to set up online forms and other systems that sent information directly into Asana via email. We have set up customized project templates and statuses that have helped us schedule and track jobs as well as review and archive jobs once they are finished.

Pros: I have used Asana since it came out. It's great for managing projects (you can log in with Gmail). You can see a list view of what you need to do or a calendar view. It even has a unicorn jump across your screen randomly when you accomplish things. You can replicate projects to create templates and add attachments to tasks. I like this is not clunky like Basecamp but just does what I need it to do and periodically comes out with new features.

Cons: I wish their mobile app was a little more robust (I hate using it) and, while I have never had an issue, I wish there was a way to back it up. That said, I figured if giant companies like Dropbox trusted them, I probably could.

Overall: Free and very functional and easy to use- love!

Pros: Ease of use, features, support, and extensive API make this an absolute dream to work with. We've tried many project management platforms over the years and nothing comes close to Asana.

Cons: The only problem we've ever had is in building a task template via the API that consisted of a series of subtasks and sub-subtasks. Their API totally supports this, it is just a bit cumbersome to initially deploy.

Pros: With Asana you can easily schedule and assign tasks to yourself, and team members. You can add due dates, organize tasks using tags or within folders, search tasks by keyword, and view it all on the calendar. It makes it easy to manage time, and collaborate on tasks without having to send a bunch of emails. You can get notifications sent to your email too (or opt out of this), which is useful, and I love the calendar view to get a high level of 1 or 2 months how many tasks I have, or of what nature, etc.

Cons: It would be nice if you could push tasks from email, or had some integration with google calendar. It does what it's meant to do though and works well for our organization which has a max of 4-5 people working on one project. I'm not sure how well it would work for larger projects or teams of 20+ people.

Pros: I like that it 'tries' to be fun and light hearted, rather than a big, boring spreadsheet of tasks.

I also love that you can reply via email, attach files, and keep things organized.

Cons: All the project manager types love this. But the creator types prefer to use something else.
If you're not a fan of organizing projects and creating tasks - then you'll hate Asana. Have someone else set it up and hold you and your team responsible.

Additionally, it's clunky and overwhelming. There's a 'conversation' log, but my team doesn't use it beyond adding notes.

Cons: The absolute antithesis of ergonomic. It makes no sense about where you're supposed to comment, approve, upload, discuss, anything. I was lost every day in this software, and I use multiple types of software every day with no issues. Asana is a mess and really needs to clean up their user side to have it make any sense at all.

Pros: I love the interface and functionality of Asana, and they keep adding more. While I'd love to be able to pay for the "dependencies" function, I get a lot of value from the free version, where I can add team members and we can collaborate. I've tried other solutions, and this is the best I've found. Love the Harvest integration to track workload, it's great for freelancers and to understand the time it takes to accomplish tasks.

Cons: Nothing negative, except that there is a big jump in price from free to paid service. I'd like to be able to add dependency function for less.

Comments: Asana is by far the best Project Management software out there. I've tried multiple other softwares like Trello, Freedcamp, and others and none have met my needs like Asana does.

Pros: Asana has by far the best, most well designed user interface. It's so easy to use and every new team member we add is up to speed on how to use it in no time with very little training. It allows you to view tasks in both a list view and a cards view like Trello now. It allows for multiple views by project, team member, calendar etc. They give LOTS of value before asking you to pay. It's free for up to 15 users I believe, which is so awesome for us being a small startup that can't afford to pay for a project management software quite yet.

Cons: It can be a little slow loading at times. But honestly it's so amazing otherwise that I'd still much prefer it over any other software. And it has a large file upload size on the free tier, but it would be nice if there was a better way to sort/view just attachements.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you want to save a bunch of time sifting through project management software take my word and just go straight for Asana. My whole team loves it and I can't say enough good about it.

PM apps are so boring. But not this one!

Pros: Still in my infancy actually utilizing Asana. I'm all about integrations: asana and I have created a machine that simplifies processes, increases efficiency, a more proactive system so that I can provide the best customer service to my clients. Calendar sync is a must, E-mailing tasks, files, adding conversations between clients, team members, thankful for the plentiful integrations and 3rd party apps - these are what change the game for asana. Tag feature comes in handy, especially when integrated w/other apps. Copy + paste from spreadsheet software is mind blowing and saves a ton of time. Overall, asana is the best project management software that's cost effective, affordable for everyone and definitely living up to the hype.

Cons: At first glance, Asana seems like the popular kid and intimidating. Over a year ago, I was initially overwhelmed, got discouraged, quit and used another app b/c of setup complications. Recently, connected w/a consultant, my life and business needed a new solution to keeping organized - asana was suggested. More variety of industry sample templates during the free trial would be helpful, at this stage i had no idea about free 3rd party templates that just make life easy. Forget everything else mentioned above: what I'm most dissatisfied about is the inability to change project layouts.

Overall: Time-saving, reduced anxiety.

Asana is truly a game changer for my small business.

Pros: I had looked at many production/team meeting type of web based programs. Asana was the one that I decided to give a try. Although there are shop management systems out there for the printing industry....the ones I have subscribed too, were either too hard to learn and teach staff to use efficiently or they were cost prohibitive. Asana offers a basic structure for me to be able to build a working shop production management system, that is fairly easy to teach and learn.

Cons: The cost for 10 seats as they call them was a bit expensive for the year, for a small business. However I think it is worth the money at this point and time. Especially if they continue to offer more updates and improvements to their platform. However, the most disappointing thing is that although now I have paid for and am using 10 positions on their program, I must buy another 5 seats on their program even though I may only need two of them for future expansion of employees that would be needing access to this system. It would be nice to see the option to add single positions, at a bit higher price than the 5 seats, that I would be required to buy now.

Overall: Overall I would highly recommend, it has really helped organize my TAP Team and allow us to move more orders through our production facility.

Pros: The integration with instagannt is awesome, my boss really didn't like how asana wasn't more visual in tracking tasks and projects, instagannt integration made this simple with a quick download, he can now easily see progress visually.

I like the email reminders when tasks are coming up, so constant use of the app isn't necessary (Although too many of these can overwhelm an inbox).

I really like the custom field dropdowns that allow you to prioritize project by a simple click of the mouse.

One of the best features of Asana, is the ability to decrease emails in your inbox. Because you can easily comment on each assigned task, and follower can just look at each project as they see fit.

Cons: Learning most of the functionality and add-on apps associated with the software can be an incredible learning curve, that really everyone on your team needs to understand. When working with a multigenerational company, it can be hard to get those of the older generation to use it.

Overall: Great productivity app, below are a list of benefits I have experienced:

- Team productivity
- organization
- Ease of mind
- Team accountability

Pros: Been using the app for the very long time. I like the ability to tag tasks. The software looks better recently, as it has some visual improvements.
Finally, the heart for like was replaced for a normal icon of a thumb up.

Cons: It has a lot of different functionality and sometimes seems too heavy, cluttered and hard to get around. When you open and have a lot of tasks on you it's hard to concentrate and focus on a single task.
I don't like that you cannot create subfolders within a project and have to use semicolons to separate things or milestones.
I don't like that it shows the text with the history of the tasks activity. It's makes it hard to read and very busy.

Overall: Managing organizational projects.

Asana is a great tool for managing personal tasks as well as inter team goals and tasks.

Pros: - Love how simple it is to start for new users
- Since the last update, it has become even faster to use
- Excellent mobile app
- You can make a process as simple (long one page task list with sections for personal use), or as complex (team projects, with milestones, with calendar, with sharing and security, with Kanban boards, templates etc.) as you want.
- Best help section i've seen on any app!

Cons: - Used to dislike the extra second or two it took to close tasks and refresh (but this was resolved with recent update. It's now super snappy)

Overall: Helps me keep organized without getting distracted or overwhelmed by too many things on my screen. It has a LOT of features, but you only use what works for you.

Pros: Asana has the flexibility to choose lists or boards depending on your need with a certain project. Everything flows into one calendar instead of one per project.

Cons: Currently can not convert a list to a board and vice versa. Also, you can't see an attachment icon on a card if there is an attachment to it.

Pros: Asana has a lot of features, and it works well for managing any type of product. It's very polished, it has cross-platform apps, and its premium versions offer nice functionality such as task dependencies.

Cons: The paid version of Asana, which you need if you want anything more than stripped-down basic functionality, is pricey. You pay in blocks of users instead of per-seat, which is not a great model for many use cases (such as freelancers or very small teams). As a freelancer, the pricing structure is the primary reason I have chosen not to continue past my trial. If it weren't for the price, I would likely be happily using Asana today!

Pros: I've known the Asana team since, they 'were just a great idea'. They used it internally, as do we at Sealed Speed. We're an extremely creative group of super talented technologists. Great ideas without execution are just a distraction. Asansa helps us capture all of these great ideas, assign tasks to move them forward, and best of all: know at any given point in time, where multiple great ideas are: along with good documentation of the thought processes behind the decisions each on the teams went through to get there. Without Asana, a lot of great ideas would never have made it past the whiteboard.

Cons: You still have to apply discipline to which great ideas to move forward or drop altogether. People still only have a fixed amount of time in their day. No software can change that. But Asana's the right tool to help make those tough decisions.

Pros: Asana has become very fast and flexible to use over the last few years.
It is very strong on the underlying project management method: Always only one asignee, generally open to many people
being able to have one task in many projects is perfect. Example: Purchasing a part and assigning is to the "Purchase list" and the project where it is used.
By now the tool is fast enough for all situations.

Cons: Sometimes a bit of a steep learning curve. But they help with many (fragmented) tutorials
The free version got cut back by a lot in the last time.
It sometimes might get a bit cluttered when you deal with many tasks. The search helps well around this.

I enjoyed using Asana at first, but it became easier for me to set reminders in Outlook.

Overall very advanced features yet super easy to use. User interface is very simple to navigate.

Cons: Task list can become overwhelming when managing multiple projects but that may be more of a reflection of my workload than the software itself.

Pros: The software is very user friendly and tracks your progress and what is still needing completion with projects. You can have multiple projects going at one time with multiple users. Recently Asana added meeting agendas. You can track meeting topics, standing and upcoming items. This software really helps keep projects and tasks organized by allowing you to assign due dates and assigning to individuals.

Cons: I don't necessarily love the layout of projects. Although I am able to easily organize my project I wish the look was different.

Overall: Organization with project management and meeting agendas.

Pros: - It's easy to use, I've never had anyone in the team not understand it or get on with it immediately - Flexible so you can use it with the way you work, lots of similar tools are very prescriptive to a particular way of managing tasks - The notifications are really useful and I like that you can respond via email and the response is added to the notes on the tasks

Cons: - Occasionally it drops out and I can't access the page because it's gone down, which is frustrating when its something you rely on every day - but this is very rare - Just a suggestion - would be good if you could collapse 'sections' and hide tasks inside a section say if it is phases of a project or low priority tasks within a list

Comments: Asana has great up time and amazing developers. They have an area you can track downtime issues when they come up (though it is very infrequent). The features are amazing and Asana is constantly adding more. They're open to suggestions and there are plenty of integrations.

Pros: Asana is built on the principle of having one owner for every task, which means there is no ambiguity about who is responsible for what. It's a simple concept that helps users work on complex projects together, knowing that their team mates are completing other parts of the puzzle.

Cons: It's easy to get lost in the detail with Asana, and create lots of work that's more about managing the project than doing the work. It needs a champion in every team to help team members get on board with the Asana way of running projects.

Overall: It helps our teams manage projects successfully.

Pros: Asana really helps my team with tracking our tasks and workflow. It makes my job as a Chief Operating Officer that much easier. I also love that it is accessible for all my team members

Cons: my only con is that initially it took me awhile to set-up because I didn't feel it was as user friendly as I would want it but once using it after a period of time its not so bad.

Pros: Asana is great to use if you're managing a team of people working on a strict deadline. I would recommend this for anyone working on time sensitive projects with strict deliverables.

Cons: Asana has an excellent UI, but is lacking in task sorting. Each time I login, I need to "sort" my tasks by due date.

Pros: - Robust feature set for the money - Easy to understand and navigate - Responsive customer support - Excellent alternative to expensive project management tools - Provides a solid collaboration plaform - Pleasant UI - Simple to configure

Cons: - Lack of some automated features - Unable to mass upload tasks - Changes to the interface can sometimes be confusing - Did not meet my need to handle multiple simultaneous projects

Switched to Asana from Basecamp - Made planning & coordinating among our team much easier!

Pros: - Color coding projects to make it easier to find the tasks you're working on.
- Ability to have multiple members, teams and projects.
- Comments section under each task makes it so much easier to stay organized when there's more than one person working on the same task at once!
- Ability to physically check off each task as it's completed.
- Drag and drop calendar functionality.
- Ability to set and schedule reoccurring tasks, assigned to more than one team member.
- FOLLOW UPS ARE AMAZING! You can set reminders for yourself to check on other team members' tasks.

Cons: - It would be nice to have a little "notifications" feature in the corner to remind you of upcoming tasks.

Pros: Asana is easy to use and the layout is incredibly intuitive. I love that you can get a tast list of all your pending tasks across projects, OR dive into individual projects and get a "to do" list on a project level. It's super easy to create a project template, and copy it across projects to save time for similar projects.

Cons: As a Microsoft project user, I wish Asana had task dependencies and an easier way to view the full list of tasks, sub tasks, etc instead of diving into each task to have to see the sub tasks.

Overall: Organization of multiple projects at a high level and project level

Asana is a great tool for Project tracking and task distribution.

Pros: We get timely updates even through email to help us to keep track of the pending activities and also to review the tasks that have been closed. It also helps to distribute tasks among various members of the team.

Cons: It would be better if we can comment separately in the main task. That way we can track which part is the main task and what are the reviews that are written.

Overall: helps to ease the task distribution and project tracking

Pros: * Used by lots of the team so I used it as others, such as my designer, used it. * I can see that it would be a good solution for some people for planning and project management. * Does make working with virtual projects team easier.

Cons: Found it a bit fiddly, unnecessarily so. Usually, I learn new apps very quickly but not this time, and that is what I found frustrating. I learned how to use MS office and Gmail Apps and Trello very easily, but not Asana. I will persevere as others I know use it to great effect so perhaps I just need to invest more time in learning how best to use Asana.

Pros: I really enjoy the email follow up and notifications. This always keeps tasks and updates at the forefront of my mind. Especially when I'm deep into work, it's so easy to reference my email for updates on various different projects. I also really love the design and colors which sounds like a small thing, but when i'm in any site - I always notice the design and I really like Asana's.

Cons: Truthfully, I haven't run into anything I don't really enjoy. There are a ton of options when creating tasks and projects are really easy to manage - I haven't yet run into something that has made me say, "Oh I wish this was different."

Overall: Ease of use, Beautiful design, keeps me and the team organized!

Pros: It`s great to have it on every device

Cons: not allow you change the view of the project after creating it

Recommendations to other buyers: Given it a try, it´s very good after using it for a few weeks

Pros: Asana is very helpful in organizing and tracking job tasks. It's also great for communicating with team members.

Cons: The interface needs some work. I can't figure out how to change from the split screen layout to full screen, and there's no way (that I can find) to edit your comments.

Overall: It's been a great help in tracking tasks and communicating with other people on the team--even (and maybe especially) team members that are working off site.

Pros: The free version is a great tool. I work in with a variety of non-profits and I wish they were all on board with this project management tool. You can manage multiple projects and multiple teams with the free version.

Cons: As with any project management tool, it was created for a certain "type" of worker, so you have to adjust to that work style. Figuring out notifications is challenging and delineating tasks takes some time.

Pros: This is the best PM ever, Asana is everything I was asking for. Before that, I used to work with paper planners. Now, my life is so much easier, Asana is free until 15 team members and you can make unlimited projects. And they connect with each other, it's easy to use. The customer service is amazing, if something is not working they do their best to make it work, even if you are a free user!

Cons: I have to say there's nothing on Asana I don't love! No cons, this is the perfect app, everybody should stop looking and create an account right now! Just do it!

Comments: Great for small teams or large ones. But either way (as with any task management system) it's the cultural change associated with adoption that's really important. And Asana's videos make that really clear. Splendid platform. The free version is richly featured - and ideal for small teams and the paid version has great features for larger ones. Asana has managed this step-up perfectly.

Pros: Way too many to list. Simplicity, flexibility and reliability being the main ones. Another being the the option to invite others in to particular areas for collaborations.

Cons: Very few that I can think of. If Asana could find a way to integrate my email inbox it'd be Nirvana. But the forward emails isn't so bad.

Recommendations to other buyers: There's a small learning curve. But it is worth it.

Pros: Asana supports tonnes of integrations and allows you to manage team projects very easily, which is helpful for complex projects with members working in different locations.

Cons: I think the file attachment system could use some work -- would love to see some kind of integration with Google docs that was directly inside Asana to allow for editing without leaving the program.

Pros: I feel Asana is a great tool for team collaboration, and figuring out what needs to be done, even when there are a million items on the todo list. The updates

Cons: ¿I feel Asana is trying to tackle too many problems and provides too many ways to do things. There's no clear direction to take when setting up task management, which throws me off a bit. On top of that, the design of the app feels stitched together. The colors don't really match and the links are too small. Creating new tasks feels weird and not very intuitive.

Overall: It helped my team manage projects and other tasks without confusion.

I love Asana! I couldn't do business without it!

Pros: You can do a lot for free! I really enjoy how easy it is to both manage my tasks and collaborate with my team. It's simple to add tasks, followers, project boards, and lists. Daily reminder emails ensure I don't have anything slip through the cracks.

Cons: I only have some minor hang-ups with it. It can be frustrating to hit enter and automatically be given a new task line that I then have to go delete, rather than just confirming the title of my task.

Overall: Much easier to stay on top of tasks, as well as show your team what you're currently working on. Collaborating is so simple!
