Asana

I like to stay very organized, so I can't imagine a scenario where Asana is less appropriate. Whether you're a one person team, or you work amongst multiple departments/teams, Asana offers the flexibility to bring everyone into the fold and keep everyone on the same page and on task. Our marketing department uses Asana to task out everything: copy, advertising deadlines, website updates, image design, PR and award management, etc. We were using Basecamp before this, but our marketing team became too large, and we weren't able to assign subtasks to individual people with individual due dates.

Being a new entrant (in other words, a Challenger to more established players), Glip should try harder to delight users. I feel that it covers well all the basic use cases, but so do similar tools that are already proven and validated. The switching cost for this type of communication platform is big.

Pros

  • Task management is all but flawless in Asana. Almost everything about the drag n' drop interface is perfectly suited for the assignment and timely completion of lots and lots of tasks and sub-tasks. Asana helped us launch a company record of 323 websites in a single month by streamlining our workflow to eliminate work-related "meta" like trying to figure out who was doing what, what should we do next by priority, and on and on. While Asana may have a great many minor flaws, task management and project management are not among them. I don't think anyone does it better, and it is hard to imagine anyone ever being able to.
  • Keyboard shortcuts. For old-school keyboard junkies like me, there is nothing better or more time-saving than being able to use the tab key to complete common functions quickly. As a long-time sufferer of repetitive stress injury from heavy mouse use, the less I need to rely on that mouse, the better. Just don't hit Tab+B. And don't ask.
  • Tags are especially helpful at organizing and finding groups of tasks. We use tags for almost everything: grouping projects by client company, grouping tasks by department, grouping photo shoots by state, matching prerequisite tasks to their counterparts. With tags, you can customize almost anything in Asana far beyond their probable intended uses.
  • e-mail straight to an Asana project... I can't tell you how much time this saves us being able to just send a client e-mail straight to Asana and have it create a task for you in the appropriate project that you can quickly assign out. You might think, "why not just forward the e-mail straight to the person you're assigning it to?" Well, for starters, in our company they are more likely to be looking at Asana at any given moment than their e-mail client. Second, if it goes to their e-mail address, who else do you copy on it? If it goes to Asana it is public for everyone in the workspace to see and comment on, re-assign to themselves if that person is not in the office that day, or whatever. If it goes in Asana it gets done, but if it goes to someone's e-mail and no one else sees it, the task will probably linger awhile.
  • Support is always respectful, thoughtful and on-target. While they don't necessarily have the resources to provide the same response times as other companies, the response you do get from Asana will usually not disappoint. Even if I know that I may not see a resolution to my issues immediately, at least with Asana I feel confident that I am being heard and that a fix is on the horizon somewhere. I get a sense that Asana's support team genuinely cares about their customers, and that goes a long, long way with me. I have been thanked no less than four times in a single e-mail from Asana support. They are just good people who manage to make YOU feel good about using their product.
  • There are more things Asana does well, and I probably can't really even list them all. The web-based cloud app is very fast, in many cases instantaneous, and we have anywhere from a thousand to two thousand projects with probably hundreds of thousands of tasks. It shouldn't be as fast as it is by any means, but they manage to satisfy somehow. They have a decent mobile app as well, though it is more suited to individual tasks and is of little use to me as a manager overseeing all of them. There are features we don't even use, like Harvest time tracking and several "Hacks". There is just a lot of stuff here.

  • Internal chat for a company.
  • Integrates well with RingCentral apps.
  • The fun stuff (gifs, emojis) were good for the most part.

Cons

  • This is not an improvement for Asana, but I wish there was a way to make team members held accountable when they do not actively participate on Asana and we do not know if they've accomplished their tasks or not if they have not logged in.

Asana is great for how I end up using it. When a new project launches and I get busy, I can easily pick it up and begin using it again and as I get more time (or the project completes) I can drop it again. It seems to morph better than any other application to exactly what project I'm working on, what I need to track, etc. It simply fits into my life extremely well and I'll end up using it again every time I start a new project.

Very likely we will renew unless the closest competitor lowers its price tiers.

Mobile UI is not as pleasant as others, it looks washed out and that makes it seem like it lacks some features.

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

Outlook Outlook can track tasks. However, it's not very collaborative; you can send tasks to other people but you can see what them after that. This feature as part of Outlook was a disaster. The only benefit that currently exists is that it was free; it never really fit in with what we wanted.Wunderlist When we looked at this, it was a better application for tasks than Outlook. However, it still was really hard to use as a team (it seemed better suited for an individual). It was simpler to use (and lacked some of the depth of objects) that was a positive but we couldn't figure out how to get the mobile app and the desktop app to sync really well. TodoTXT This was the simplest product to use. It also meant that it lacked all the nice features of the other application.

Slack is a nicer looking chat program, but in order to keep all your message history, you have to pay per user, so Glip was better in that respect. HipChat, a chat app we used a long time ago, was not very easy/fun to use and lacked some functionality. Glip has nearly all the functionality that Slack had.
