Pros: it's really easy to create lists and share them with people. i use it mainly for personal to-do lists and scheduling but have used it to manage project tasks for small teams in the past. the email notifications, calendar integrations, commenting, assignment.. all just works

Cons: would be great to be able to change due dates on items in my google calendar.. just drag and drop would be nice. sync speeds with calendar are slow (they do tell us that but can't you fix it?). not much else to dislike

I've used Asana to get everyone on the same page about completing tasks.

Pros: I love how easy it is to navigate. I've used other software before that doesn't have the friendliest interface. It was easy to switch between the different teams that I was part of.

Cons: The only improvement I would make would be for more integrations with other software but it honestly does the job as it is for what I needed.

Overall: It helped organize my team to get on the same page when we were all in different time zones around the world.

Asana has been a game-changer for our design and marketing teams!

Pros: As a Project Manager at a mid-sized software company, I HAVE to have a big picture overview of all work being done: who is doing what, when the deadlines are, and when tasks are completed and approved. And, I need to be able to see what's going on from anywhere at any time. Before we started using Asana, it was incredibly difficult to track all of our projects and I used several data silos to manage all of the details. Asana was a life saver for me because not only does it allow me to see all of the work/tasks assigned to individuals, but my team uses it to communicate with each other - and I can view all of their communications for reference as needed. We also use the integration with the time tracking software, Everhour, and it worked really well for us. The dashboard and reporting functionalities are extremely easy to read, and give a great overview of progress. The free version is an incredible platform on its own, and upgrading to premium is extremely reasonable considering all of the extra reporting functionality you receive. This is a great program for companies that need a simple and intuitive solution for managing projects that require high communication and fast results.

Cons: It would be nice if the interface was more customizable for the purpose of displaying data in ways that would be most helpful for each individual user. Currently the display (of projects and task lists) is fairly inflexible, but, it's very easy to use. Asana does not have gantt charts or any micro level management tools used for budgeting, which is why I recommend using Asana for the communication and deadline aspect of projects, but NOT for carrying out PM responsibilities required for most successful projects.

Pros: ¿ Great for managing tasks ¿ Clean design - Can easily see tasks without any clutter ¿ Great sections for categorizing tasks which keeps everything organized ¿ Good display of project timelines

Cons: No major issues. It can have a little bit of a learning curve for things like keep certain tasks private to certain groups, but it's nothing major.

Pros: Easy for relatively large teams to use and update without confusing each other! Very intuitive interface that you can pick up in minutes

Cons: Over time , as historical tasks multiply it starts to get a little messy, and perhaps lacks options to reorganise lists and task areas (could blame this on user approach!)

Pros: Asana's interface is quite flexible because you can shift from the regular list view to boards depending on what is needed for the project you're working on and what is ideal for you as a user.

Cons: The software is good for putting together lists but getting down to the tasks and sub-tasks can be confusing when you have a lot of tasks involved.

Overall: It's free to use and the features that come with the free version is pretty much everything you need.

Pros: Asana is super easy to use and offers a variety of opportunities to organize you personal or more dominantly work life. You can easily set up projects and divide them into tasks ans sub tasks. Also, you can upload data to connect you office documents with asana.

Cons: Unfortunatley, you cannot enter "events" in the calendar but only tasks. For me, adding this feature would make asana even better to use. Also, I experienced some issues inviting other people to projects, but after a while it worked.

Pros: With Asana it's like no having everyone's door open to you. The ability of users to have visibility into other team members projects and timelines has helped move projects forward without the need for endless pre-planning meetings.

Cons: Varying degrees of user competency can make for a sometimes incoherent experience. This can be mitigated by customizing your dashboard.

Overall: Asana adds a great layer of visibility across departments.

Pros: I like the fact that Asana is perfect for our growing task management needs. Asana helped users in ourcompany keep track of their activities and break up projects into smaller, actionable tasks. This helped the project members get things done efficiently.

Pros: The list view vs. board view gives a nice way to visualize different types of projects. Assigning tasks to colleagues is easy. The notifications are helpful and not overbearing.

Cons: Monitoring progress of tasks isn't very detailed. It often feels like extra work to manage simple tasks in Asana, rather than just a basic to do list. Getting company buy-in has been difficult, so it tends to only be effective for certain groups.

Overall: Better project organization and task management.

Pros: Asana is super customizable, and effectively tracks any kind of task or project you need. I've been able to rely on my timelines in Asana, which means I don't have to worry about missing a deadline. They also really listen to customer feedback, as some of my remarks have resulted in change to the system within only a few months.

Cons: The jump from free user to paid business use is pretty steep, but you can do SO much with the free version, I feel that by the time you are needing to pay for the upgraded version, you really know your way around and are going to be getting the most value by upgrading.

Overall: I don't have to worry about forgetting anything, and that gives me the confidence to move on with my day and get things done.

Pros: We use Asana to manage and complete tasks, and I can't imagine working without it. It keeps us organized and efficient. Tasks are very easy to make and assign, and you can clearly see who owns the task, what work we're waiting on, and which tasks need to be completed for other tasks to begin. The interface is very user-friendly.

Cons: Seems silly, but I wish I could edit comments after posting them on tasks. When you quick-add a new task, it would be nice if you could add tags. Currently I have to make the task, then go to it and add the tags there.

Comments: It's great for personal projects and freelance as well, and the emails you can have it send you are a helpful nudge when things get out-of-order or hectic. Little quality of life improvements can help you really feel on top of your workflow.

Pros: Extremely accommodating for even the smallest projects. Team management is packed with helpful features and functionality. Ability to add new people to established projects is great. Web app is responsive and easy to use.

Cons: There's a missed opportunity with some of the time-tracking features to actually record hours in a way that can accumulate within the program.

Pros: I like how simple it is to use this software. It's really easy to create projects or set up to do lists to keep your workflow organized. My team uses this all the time so we can see each others' progress with certain tasks and delegate responsibility as needed. It eliminates the need for constant emailing back and forth to accomplish a project.

Cons: Perhaps I just haven't figured this out yet, but it's annoying to receive notifications via email all the time. I would prefer to eliminate email altogether and simply get notifications on my desktop, like messages. The customer service hasn't been that great when helping me try to solve these small challenges.

Pros: As the project manager, I was impressed with the easy of learning and how fast I could create project tasks. Provides simple management of daily tasks, a great way to collaborate on items and an easy method to tag and assign. Very easy to enter tasks, projects and share them among team members. The interface is easy to understand. It does everything that I want.

Cons: When you're not the project manager and you ask team members to interact with Asana review and complete tasks, I found that the team doesn't take advantage of the tool for task feedback or completion. They see an Asana task list like email, a static list when instead the task list can and should be dynamic. Lack of iPad app. Occasionally, I get lost between my personal tasks and the tasks that are assigned to me as a part of the business group that I'm a part of.

Pros: Collaboration on top of all things, with Asana everybody knows what is happening with each product, everybody know what each teammate is working on and the status of everything. If you educate your team to use it properly It would be an awesome tool to manage your company. It is very easy to create teams, start projects and organize them in different views, define tasks, owners and deadlines, really awesome.

Cons: It would be great to have more options of views from the projects, a better calendar view and a Gantt style view like we can do with Instagantt. Also lacks some tool to manage the whole company and have a big picture of everything that is happening at the moment or during certain amount of time.

Overall: Manage all the teams, tasks and projects very easily!

Cons: There are a lot of features that I don't use with this software, so sometimes those things get in my way. Otherwise, it is a great tool for me.

Overall: I actually complete my projects ahead of schedule because I can task out details in Asana and do everything I need.

Pros: I love that you we can organize all of our projects and our to-do lists in one place. .I also love how we can communicate with our other staff members and contractors and keep all of our files/links/info in one place.

Cons: Sometimes the layout isn't as user-friendly as I would like. However, I haven't tried the calendar view because you cannot switch from a list to a calendar once you have created a project. I would love to be able to toggle these back and forth to see which I like better (for each project).

Overall: Time & project management is much more simple than going back and forth via email.

Pros: It's a great tool for creating lists and boards for managing your own and team projects/ to-do lists. It's very flexible and has some great features to make the whole experience great using it on a daily basis. It has become the go-to place to view the progress of tasks and projects. We love the 'inbox' which notifies everyone of updates throughout the day.

Cons: It takes a moment to get your bearings and there's quite a lot to learn. Once you get the hang of the software it becomes very streamlined - and they have some really great guides to help with this - but until you've invested some time into it it can be hard to grasp.

Pros: It keeps our team on the same page. Asana also is easy to use and makes it easy to keep track of everything that is going on.

Cons: Asana is pretty complex and it is easy for a team of multiple users to get bogged down and spend more time managing Asana than working.

Overall: Better organization and better team efforts.

Pros: It's so straightforward and easy to use, that I've never had to actually contact support. How amazing is that?!

Cons: I can't think of anything at the moment. Asana is just rock solid. If I had to be nit picky, sometimes once you had added someone to a project (EG: A client or contractor) it can be a little confusing on how to actually remove that person 100% from the system.

Overall: Formerly we were with Basecamp, and found that the team wasn't using the software that much. When we switched to Asana that changed, and now everyone is engaged and using it daily to track tasks and projects.

With Asana, I took another step in documenting my processes and optimizing my wokflow.

Pros: For me, the greatest quality of Asana in how clear and easy to read it is. I tried several other Project Management Tool before. Some even had better and more features than Asana, but never this kind of clear and well organize interface. In my line of work, being able to stay focus on the priorities and not missing anything crucial is key.

Cons: The only feature I don't find very practical in Asana is the conversation user experience. The readability should be improved...

Overall: Now, everything that I need to do repeatedly, wether it's professional or private, wether it's for myself alone or in a collaborative way, I do it with Asana.

Asana is very user friendly software. You can systematically create tasks and check updates on it.

Pros: I like the edit comment and hide option. Also the due date option helps you set due dates for every task. Creating teams and reserving access is also a very good feature. Change view option helps you customise the page in the way you would like to see all tasks.

Cons: Images take along time to upload on a task. also if there are many images they show up completely creating a confusion.

Overall: I could easily organise all tasks and also get a reminder when my tasks are due or if any changes were made on mail. Could easily co-ordinate with other team members using this software

I have been using asana for almost 3 years now. I think its the best task manager out there.

Pros: I like that you can organize yours and team task differently. Even thought this is an option most of the task managers have asana has a better search and organisation function than most.

Cons: I don't like that asana doesn't work with a proxy. Most of the time i have to use different IP proxies as i have to look at publishers web pages for ads from different parts of the world. To counter this i use two web browsers.

Pros: I would recommend Asana to others because it is easy to use and easy to implement, especially with members of the office who are less tech-savvy. The interface is very digestible -- the platform has everything where I need it. The support team is great, too. Overall, I prefer Asana to Trello or Basecamp.

Cons: It would be great if there could be a feature that would allow users to edit comments or to use rich text editing within a task. Also, file hosting would be helpful.

Pros: i really like the email updates Asana provides, both with task/to-do notification as well as a dashboard view of everything. iOS app is really good. it's really easy to add team members and assign tasks to them

Cons: i wish Asana would default to assigning tasks to someone instead of no one. adding due dates for tasks did not feel intuitive at first. i'm not crazy about the choice of free themes.

Pros: Asana is a great tool for managing workflows and has a pretty easy learning curve for new users. I work at a small non-profit where staff wear multiple hats, and everyone has a role in projects. Asana helps us keep all the pieces organized.

Cons: Our organization would really like to upgrade from the free version, but it's not budget-friendly for small non-profits. I'd love for Asana to have a midrange level between free and Premium.

Overall: Better communication and organization around projects with multiple stakeholders, and fewer dropped balls.

Used for tracking large tasks that involved multiple people.

Pros: Asana made it easy to duplicate tasks & projects & assign to other users. Additionally, the search functionality was a life save of the tool so long as you knew exactly what to search for.

Cons: Difficult to filter through lists of tasks, sort and organize. With different groups and owners of projects it just didn't flow nicely especially in a listed format.

Overall: We learned that we need this tool for one of our teams, however, we needed a more robust tool to assign and project hours for another team. If the two could be combined we would be golden.

Pros: Organizing projects and dividing duties is way easier with Asana. I have a tough time delegating without it.

Cons: It doesn't allow for too many levels of task organization. You can organize by team, then category, then task and subtask, but at times I'd appreciate even more levels or intricacy within a task to divide up the work into more multiples of steps. It may take adjusting if you're a list maker who goes multiple steps deep (like myself), but you'll get used to it.

Pros: The graphics interface is fresh and easy to use and understand even without extensive training.
It allows for task dependencies and creation of sub-tasks.
It allows restraining the visibility of specific projects to only selected individuals of your Team, which is a big deal if your team is broad and you have projects containing sensitive info.

Cons: It doesn't come with a stand-alone app, it's all web-browser managed. If you are off-line, you are stuck.
Customer support is ok. It's a fast growing company so a lot of turns over in the support people so you don't end up being followed by somebody that knows your set-up.

Comments: It¿s a great tool for keeping up and interacting with team projects. It¿s very powerful with what all it can do. It may be too much for some teams or an individual just looking to keep track of daily tasks.

Pros: I first discovered Asana years ago when working on a team with several projects going on all at once. It¿s a great tool to see all projects at once, assign specific team members to a task, set due dates, reminders, and so much more. You can comment or ask questions within a task. You can see when an item was completed, notes, and everything in between. When I moved to a different company, they were usin Excel spreadsheet to keep up with tasks and I suggested we use Asana instead. As someone who loves task lists and being able to check off items off a to-do list, this is a great tool.

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: 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.

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.

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: 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: It enables us as a team who work remotely to work cohesively and let everyone know what stage their parts of a project are at. It is also useful to manage repetitive tasks to ensure they get done.

Cons: It can be a bit hard to get going at first but once you know what you are doing it is easy. Help documentation is not too bad either.

Overall: Better team collaboration

Pros: It's so fluid and easy to use. Create a task and assign it to a team member and then it notifies you of any comments or changes to the task - and that's it!

Cons: Limiting in comparison to other Project Management tools. It doesn't appear to have a 'client side' mode, where some tasks would be kept internal or further discussions would be had.

Overall: Great to use, very well designed and a joy to use.

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.

Pros: I use asana for personal as well as professional projects, it is easy to use and still very powerful. Value for money (mostly asana is free) is awesome!

Cons: To be honest there is nothing I don't like about asana - I am a real fan and would recommend it to everyone. It is not as powerful for software projects as jira but apart from the technical side, I love to manage all my projects in asana.

Pros: Easily assign tasks and keep up-to-date with people doing the work on your project. You can easily see "your Tasks" on your dashboard, manage your projects/email communications on the fly.

Cons: Takes a bit of getting use to as its very involved with many options and screens to navigate through. They did well in how they structured the app.

Pros: I guess how easy it can be to add users to a program together, we could have users from all roles in our organization on there in different groups

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 can create project tasks and assign them to the person responsible for. I can follow up on these tasks to ensure compliance. I can add files to the tasks, make a schedule of them, and more. With Asana i keep the tasks of any project up to date and it's easy to use.

Cons: I cannot attach very large files to the task, such as mp4 videos or any other, that forces me to use external app to sent large files to a team member.

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.

I love it!

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.

Overall: Increased productivity, status updates, less meetings
