Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Evernote

Evernote is great as the digital equivalent of sweeping things under the rug. It's not gone, but not in your face. It's much easier to find later - which makes me feel like I'm cheating at being organized. Evernote is great for plain text or basic text, but formatting and robust documents feel clunky and cause issues - so I usually avoid those types of projects or simply attach a Word document.

Pros

  • Simplicity of user interface without neglecting functionality
  • Timeline and calendar views are extremely useful
  • Templates for repeatable projects
Barbara Carneiro profile photo
  • Evernote is a great place for taking and storing notes since it is available virtually anywhere, sharable, and accepts text and imagery.
  • The OCR functionality is incredible within Evernote even being able to recognize handwriting.
  • The ability to share a note via a generated URL is very helpful.

Cons

  • The layout of Asana is a little intense and could be cleaned up a bit to provide a cleaner, more focused look.
  • Can't drag and drop all tasks from one subtask to another.
  • Would be nice if one subtask could live in two tasks (similarly that one task can live in multiple projects).

  • It is surprising Evernote doesn't make better use of Markup with its popularity in so many other software.
  • Improved functionality on how Evernote treats video would be great.
  • When using the Evernote browser extension, it can be confusing knowing into which folder a clip was saved.

Big fan of Asana. There are many free tools out there so difficult to take on more cost when we have free tools we can use

I rate my likelihood of renewing my use of Evernote at a 9 because the program will remain a key component in orchestrating my organization's long-term plans. But, if Mozilla Firefox designs a better web clipper or Google Chrome solves its memory problems, then I'll change my rating to a 10.

Generally issues are by connectivity and not Evernote availability but I have had issues in the past with cross-client consistency of data which Evernote Support has ID'd as bugs that are still unresolved as far as I know

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

Trello - great but a bit young. Good integration points. I think it could be a good too to integrate with. Some people enjoy the KanBan type view and Asana doesn't have that currently. Basecamp - more project manager focused but also a good integration point. JIRA - Better for support and bug management than task management on a project/enterprise level

As a professional, I chose to spend my own money on Evernote because it gives me the most value for the cost. Microsoft Office 365 is so prevalent in the workplace, that I expect that my employer would pay for that service. Dropbox for Business is incredibly expensive for what it offers—but, is a very reliable and usable product. In the end though, Evernote is affordable and a good tool for a professional to use from one workplace to the next.
