Asana

I can not be happier. My team was using Basecamp but we outgrew it. We moved to Teamwork and clients stopped using it and so did my team. We were in Teamwork for just a month and decided we needed something better. We then found Asana and it has been a breeze since. My team was far happier and ready to use it and my clients started interacting with it again. It is simple to use, yet very powerful

Cons

  • Sometimes anyone who has touched a project still receive notification even if they don't need it
  • Having to manually enter information from other areas

  • A complete lack of even the most basic reporting is a source of ongoing disappointment and frustration. I would like to know, at the very least, how many unarchived projects I have. It would be extremely helpful to know how many incomplete tasks there are, how many tasks are being completed per day or week, or any of those things. Asana doesn't tell you anything at all about what is going on inside of it. Even the filter dropdown, which shows a number of matching tasks for each tag filter includes both completed and incompleted tasks even if you have completed tasks hidden in that view. We have been on Asana for over a year-and-a-half with absolutely no reporting whatsoever beyond what we tracked manually in spreadsheets. This is without a doubt the single most annoying thing about using Asana.
  • The project list is an unmitigated, unsortable disaster if you have a large number of projects. Going through it is an hours-long chore of scrolling down, clicking "More Projects..." scrolling down and repeating over and over. To make matter worse, the most recently entered projects always appear at the bottom, so if you have any open but delayed/stalled projects, you'll have to scroll past them to get to the items you can actually get completed. Since projects have no defining characteristics unto themselves that allow any sorting options, you are ever at the mercy of the search box to find anything in any reasonable amount of time, and that search box carries its own set of tiny migraine-inducers.
  • The search box is fast enough to function, but not fast enough that you can actually click on things before the results change again as it searches through more items that match your terms. No less than twenty times a day do I search for a tag or project, then click (or arrow key down and hit enter) on the tag or project I am looking for in the results list just as it re-orders itself, causing me to have clicked on the wrong result. Then I have to type my search all over again. The search feature does not work for archived projects, either, so the only ways to find them are to search for a tag you know might be on that project, or scroll all the way down to the archived projects list at the bottom of the main projects list and then patiently hunt-and-peck for them as you scroll further still.
  • The API for integration, unlike the web app itself, is painfully slow. I don't know if it is because it wants to pull down every project every time (including archived ones) instead of just the ones you are looking to access or what, but our dev team has had one heck of a time getting it to stay online and functioning. Our integration breaks down regularly, and that affects our photography dispatch report, our automated generation of new tasks when a sale comes in, and our fledgling reporting system (which seems to return only zeroes and ones). Some of this is on our dev team to fix, but I have to blame a cumbersome API for most of the speed issues.

I just can't see us getting it off of Asana any time soon, despite the many headaches it has caused us. We have too much data in there, too much time & training invested into it, too much at stake to move. If we were just starting out today, fresh, I don't know for certain that I would absolutely go the same direction, but I *think* I still would. I just haven't seen anything better yet. Maybe if Podio's support staff hadn't treated me like a worthless nuisance to them, I might feel differently, but the fact is that their task management is simply inferior to Asana's. That can't be denied, and in fact Podio said it themselves: "Tasks are a simple function. They cannot be customized. Tasks in Podio can be used for quick to-do's for you and your team members." In our operation, however, prompt task completion is a big deal; one task can't be completed until another one is done first, and closing the gaps between those tasks is critical in meeting deadlines and servicing our customers. Asana gets us there, the others don't.

They don't fix everything, but they have certainly gone the extra mile for us. When we were frustrated with a recent change that altered our default view of every project, changing it from all projects being visible to just incomplete projects being visible, they wrote a custom script to change all of our default views back for us, so we didn't have to manually click 3,000 times (we have over a thousand projects).

Asana is a much more seamless process, much more intuitive, and better UI. My complaint with Basecamp is that it does not seem well organized - the interface is not as intuitive and in the past, it has overwhelmed my former teammates. To the point where they do not actively login to Basecamp at all
