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.

Flock

The biggest problem we are looking to solve with use of Flock was to have a centralized place that our booking department and casting department along with artists and agents could come to talk about projects and design creative solutions. For the most part, Flock achieves this. It might've only been lack of better on-boarding on our own end, but some of our artists find it too complex to use (or maybe they just didn't try hard to figure it out).

Pros

  • Asana allows you to organize your task through a list or through boards.
  • Asana has a great user interface so it's easy for you to locate the projects and the pieces of tasks under each project.
  • Asana's "My Tasks" feature allows you to see all the tasks assigned to you and you can re-arrange them according to priority level.
  • Asana allows me to attach files to each task which allows us to see the progress of the project. It allows you to comment on the current files and the owner of the task can revise it then according to your instructions.

  • The ability to start a direct group conversation or individual-to-individual conversation helped us sort through creative problem-solving.
  • Sharing files such as photos from job sites or costume ideas helped us with creative brainstorming.
  • The integration with Google Drive and Dropbox also allowed us to streamline our conversations about creative solutions.

Cons

  • It's not that easy to change or update the name of the title. You need to click the arrow down button beside the title to edit. I believe it should be easier like just click on the current title and change it.
  • I would like Asana to put a feature like Facebook and LinkedIn where you know who's online and who's not online. Because if the person-in-charge is online you can communicate with him real time rather than waiting for him to respond later on.
  • I would be glad too if they add a voice call or video call feature so that if you have concerns and the person you would like to talk to is online you can speak with him right away. Some comments or revisions just needs to be explained through a call to eliminate misunderstandings.

  • A tool is only good if people use it. Some of the artists I work with found it too complex (though I don't think they really gave it a good shot).
  • We used it heavily for about six months and it didn't hit too many other big negative points.

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

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 was developed with a very specific function in mind. Assigning and tracking tasks and projects. It does this very very well and doesn't really do a whole lot yes, which is perfectly fine. The only alternatives I could think of would be some sort of Dropbox or Google Drive document keeping track of task assignment. While, this might work, it's definitely not as feature-packed as Asana. And you'll still use either Dropbox or Google Drive for document collaboration.

Our creative team collaboration pathway story went like this..We started on Facebook as a secret group. We looked for better solutions and moved to Google Docs. It was a bit too robust for smaller conversations, so we moved to flock. Flock was great but proved to be too much for some of our artists, so we moved to NoteJoy. This seemed to be a good resting place for the moment.

Return on Investment

  • Allows us to keep on top of grants and sponsorships that we might otherwise miss and keeps track of our answers, comments, and files from one year to the next.
  • Allows us to see when we need to report to the government and makes sure we don't accumulate any late fees.

  • It did provide a creative space for conversation and this does equal a great return on investment, considering the investment is free for the base use.
  • For the team members who enjoyed using it, it helped them save time in their day by having a repository for notes and creative ideas.
