Asana

Asana has helped us stay on track from briefing with marketing partners to planning with media partners then continuing the process of kicking off creative, working through creative and finalizing approvals to then finish and send to the activation team. It's a one stop shop for our project needs. Much like with any tool, getting users to adopt it and update can be a challenge but Asana makes it easy to assign tasks to keep folks in line.

Google Keep

As a Customer Experience Trainer, I recommend that all the new members utilize Google Keep for better organization. It also helps with productivity, as our team members are able to write common responses that they may use for common situations. This allows them to easily copy and paste it into their email or live response instead of typing the same response over and over again. Though this tool is great for collaboration, I wouldn't recommend using it for larger projects. In that case, I would recommend Google Docs.

Google Keep

  • Easy to organize and color coordinate.
  • Allows for an associated image to be connected with the note.
  • Alarms set for reminders.
  • Ability to add others to the note to share and collaborate.

Cons

Asana

  • I think there could be improved clarity around the different levels of Asana. For example, the resources available to paid accounts are not visible from the more basic accounts, so you're not aware that there are expanded options until you look in their knowledge base and see that they have additional features.
  • Exporting projects - you can export a project into a csv, but it isn't pretty. This can be challenging if you'd like to have an archived project folder for open records requests.

Google Keep

  • The text box check list style notes only allow one indent and it would be useful to allow at least 1 more indent(2 total).
  • More robust font changes.

  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

It does everything I need it to do. It is easy to organize and categorize what I need and what I want to see.

It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

Google Keep is very easy to use. Currently, the company I work for has employees from different age brackets, and this is one of the easiest apps on G-Suite to explain. Not a lot of people use it, but it is due to personal choice since a lot of people still prefer pen and paper to keep their notes.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

I never had to request support for Google Keep, all the information I needed is in the online help center. Never have a malfunction.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

We selected ASANA based on the feature set, and ease of rollout. monday.com had very good workflow automation but we found that ASANA was quicker and easier for staff to build a task eco-system that worked for them.
Zoho Projects was a very strong contender but was much more expensive and so ASANA was the more effective choice across the board.

Task apps built into iOS just don't compete. The only edge these have over Google Keep is Siri can schedule something for you. But the power and flexibility of Google Keep is better.

  • Google Keep is free, and for what I need it for I don't need to purchase another tool.
  • It's handy when it comes to taking quick notes, but so is a piece of paper. This tool won't magically improve your life.
