Asana

Asana is a great tool for simple tasks, but only for simple ones. But, don't forget that most of the tasks are usually simple. So, Asana can be used as a great personal task management system, online agenda for meetings, simple tasks allocation tool and even an easy to use management tool for simple projects. One of the main advantages of Asana is the ease of use, so even if it is not perfect anyone can use it, and if you use any management tool it is much better than nothing.

Cons

Abstract

  • Asset exports are not as great as Zeplin and others.
  • Filtering within files.

  • Expensive - The free plan has always worked well for me, but when you upgrade, it can be quite pricy, especially for a team.
  • Templates - I like the idea of these, but when I've looked at them before, they were a bit complicated and would take too much time to customize for my needs.
  • On-boarding - It's easy enough to get started with a task, but when I read the on-boarding emails, it seems more complicated and not to my preferences.

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

Alternatives Considered

Abstract

I purchased and administer Abstract. It was requested by our design department who evaluated it.
Christopher Fritz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Asana

Asana is the best for task management, it’s easy to use and streamlined for team members to use with minimal intervention. It’s a lot nicer to use compared to similar products like Projectplace although there is some difference in features. It has much better features in terms of tracking and task assignment than Microsoft Teams which is the alternative, but does lack the seamless integration.

  • It is easy to track activities and accommodate and communicate changes which facilitates the ability to complete projects on time and within budget.
  • Accountability - It eliminates the issue of persons not knowing what activities they are responsible for during the planning of a project or assignment of resources to activities.
