Asana

Overall, despite its drawbacks, Asana works really well for our team. I think this is an appropriate [tool] for a mid-sized digital marketing firm, like ourselves. A software development team is going to want something more robust, like JIRA. However, if you're just shopping for an easy-to-learn tool that will help you manage responsibilities without relying on email? Asana is perfect. Its flexibility also makes it a great fit for most work-flows in almost any industry. Asana is simple out-of-the-box, but it does have robust functionalities that will allow your team to ramp up if desired.

Pros

  • Project management and workflow
  • Create customized lists of tasks and reminders.
  • Employee activity tracking
  • One-time solution for project tracking

Cons

  • If you don't have a champion, the tool won't be used. Just like a shared drive, it has to be kept clean and organized or no one will use it.
  • No Gantt chart functionality.
  • Printing customization doesn't exist - i.e. doesn't show sub-tasks.

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

Lots of useful features, if you can learn how to use them and actually implement it across enough of the team to adapt it

Support

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).

Alternatives Considered

Asana has its proper place in task management. There are better tools that provide similar functionality but the decision depends heavily on the actual requirements. If you own a small business or a start up, Asana is excellent. If you are an enterprise level organization, you'll want to map the requirements to the key features and functionality. Considering Asana is a free product with a paid model as you grow, it is an excellent offering to the project management community.
