Likelihood to Recommend

Asana

Asana keeps you on track and helps you prioritize projects and to-dos. I like that you can see what you've previously worked on and accomplished. It's less appropriate for teams who are very active inside their email, like Outlook, and prefer to use the Tasks function already in their email software. Asana is rewarding to teams and helps projects be completed on time

It depends on what the colleagues needs are. I think it is GREAT for visual brand management, but it does not (or I have not noticed) have the ability to really have brand descriptions and verbiage of different length (50, 100, 250 words, etc) or other written instructions for how to write, who should have a voice, how social media is handled, etc.

Pros

Asana

  • Fast: Unlike other PM platforms I've used, Asana is very fast. In fact, it's so fast that when you leave a comment on a task, anyone else looking at that task at the same time will actually see updates as you type. You can easily move tasks into different projects by dragging and dropping. There is no lag time between opening new projects and tasks. Everything seems to load instantaneously.
  • Intuitive: Asana doesn't have a steep learning curve. The default view is list-based. Your team will have no problem learning how to add new tasks, use the WYSIWYG editor, or assign tasks. Use familiar commands like "@" to tag a follower on a task.
  • Keyboard shortcuts: The keyboard shortcuts are incredibly helpful. Simply press enter to enter a new task, tab+backspace to delete, use familiar copy/paste and undo commands, and much more. PMs with a lot to juggle will appreciate the shortcuts.
  • My Tasks: The "my tasks" view provides a single, centralized location for you to see everything on your plate. Use section headings and drag and drop tasks to re-order. I use this to prioritize my week. It helps me focus on what's really important.
  • Searchability: The search in Asana is intuitive. Our task backlog dates back three years, and I can still almost always find what I'm looking for via a simple keyword search. Projects are archived, not deleted, so I always feel like my historical information is safe.
  • Flexibility: Projects can be set up as a waterfall/list view or as kanban. This product should work well for teams with different styles.
  • Integrations: Asana integrates with everything. There's a great Slack integration, but my favorite is the Instagantt integration. Using Instagantt in tandem with asana is a super easy way to create attractive digital project calendars.

  • It manages the visual aspects of a brand very well.
  • It is easy to use and update.
  • It converts the colors from hex to rgb and cmyk seamlessly.
  • It has a nice user interface.

Cons

Asana

  • I wish Asana had more customizable reporting. One of the benefits of using Asana is that you can track tasks and actually use those tasks to build repeatable processes, but decoding reports can be challenging.
  • Asana's printing functionality needs improvement. You can use Asana tasks to create agendas, for example, but it's not possible to print a clean agenda to share with a group who's not on Asana and/or doesn't have their computer at a meeting.

  • I believe having an agency option would be great so that one could manage and build multiple brands for multiple clients.
  • Having sections for voice and personality would be great.
  • The ability to export a brand document to a .PDF to share with partners.

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).

Frontify is very easy to use and makes updating information a breeze. Frontify acts a central location to house assets and information for easy sharing. You can plug and play information and even white label the guide if desired

I use multiple project management tools and Asana is by far my favourite. As mentioned before, Asana is not only brilliant in its plethora of features that allow you to use it the way YOU want it. It's also pleasant to use with its quirky illustrations, white space and sweet messages. Plus, the brand's mission is something I can relate to.

I have yet to have to contact Asana's support, other than to request info about their non-profit pricing structure. Based on how quickly they responded to that, and how well everything works, I would imagine their support is top-notch. However, I can't guarantee that, as we have never used it.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

We tried Trello, Wunderlist, and Producteev, but at the time, none of them had the feature set that Asana offers. The main requirement we had was the ability to create projects and subtasks with individual due dates and assignments. Asana was the only one that allowed us to assign each individual task to anyone within the group...all for free!

OpenBrand.com is not quite as visually appealing as Frontify, but it would be worth investigating if you are looking for brand management. I frequently use them in combination with each other and have a more appealing pricing structure.

Return on Investment

Asana

  • No time waste: People are aware of their tasks list.
  • No useless meetings: New tasks are on the way and done.
  • It's better for bigger businesses.

  • For a highly visual brand with a small team, I believe the time saved and the tools offered would make the plus plan attractive. I do not know that I would recommend the larger plans to my clients.
