Asana

Asana functions particularly well in scenarios with well-established teams with well-established processes and a mature SDLC. The reason is that Asana can be configured to do many, many different things, and be used in many, many different ways, and with that power comes a lot of responsibility to figure out your process before you try and automate it. It's software, not magic.

CoSchedule

Great for blog content and for collaboration, but less so perhaps for content development in other areas such as web pages, brochures/collateral, video scripts and digital asset development. Guests/light users do not like the fact that they have to log onto WordPress to see or comment on draft blog posts. Single sign on for those doing content reviews but not actual editing is desirable.

Pros

  • Asana is a blazingly fast collaborative task list that supports multiple projects. Multiple team members can generate and prioritize tasks for the same project in real-time. Individual task lists are generated from the assigned tasks across multiple projects, and each team member prioritizes the work. Comments, notes, and file sharing are integrated into the application to enable collaboration at a task level.
  • A practical application of Asana is applying it to Information Technology Security and Controls or Sarbanes-Oxley compliance audits. These types of assessment typically involve a checklist that require supporting documentation. Using Asana, the entire project team can respond with the appropriate evidence to complete an audit checklist. In large scale system implementations, it isn't uncommon to have a detailed 200 line task list to launch a new system. Asana is a great tool for this type of task-list checkbox project management.

  • Calendar is dynamic and has color coding for event types (Wordpress blog, raw content, video, images etc.)
  • Can create content in a WSIWYG editor and convert to Wordpress, HTML or PDF
  • Integrates nicely with Wordpress (you have to do editing in WP) and also carries dashboard information on the WP post. Also integrates with other CMS solutions

Cons

  • Asana is a useful "punch list" or "task list" tool. If you are doing "Pick A Date" project management, it is an excellent solution. However, for large projects that need to identify task dependencies, the critical path, forecasting or Gantt chart type reporting, this is not the tool for your team. LiquidPlanner would be a much better solution for these requirements.

  • Previewer of WP content in CoSchedule would be a plus
  • Better documentation of features, how they actually work
  • Suggest possibly more than two levels of participant - User, Guest seems limiting

Based on 32 answers
I am using Asana at the free level tier and have applied it to my own task tracking and planning. My other stakeholders who have implemented Asana would rate the renew question much higher as it is critical to their business. That being said, I am a bigger fan of LiquidPlanner (paid) and Trello (free).

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.

Return on Investment

  • Asana has helped us be more efficient in tracking projects while simultaneously eliminating the clutter of emails.

  • Probably too early to tell for certain but it is definitely value priced right now. Fully developed content management platforms are running in $15-$20k per year range and more. You can get into a CoSchedule solution for $
  • Team has found it easy to sign on and review tasks so this is a big time saver. More could be done to enable Guests easier access to content they need to review
  • It's way faster that other scheduling apps we have tried. The fact that it runs on a cloud based app or inside your Wordpress app is a real plus. Auto save feature also means you don't have to remember to save your content.
