Asana fixed team issues like project transparency and communication, improved team performance, and enhanced office and mobile productivity. Upper management can solve project management issues quickly, and new hires can use the tool immediately. Asana's surveys simplify research and data collection. Its free trial, free plan, or paid SaaS subscription gives small and large teams the tools and centralized console to work through project tasks efficiently. Due to its complexity, Asana can be overwhelming at first.

If other google products are already in use, it is very easy to get into Google Tasks as well and everybody probably has a google account, hence, does not need another account as well. It is helpful for simple to do lists, we would not recommend for larger project planning.
Read full review Pros Through it, we were able to communicate and cooperate with the rest of the team to complete the work in the required manner and at the appropriate time. Available for free on Android and iPhone. Asana has a simple and easy user interface Read full review The best part, Google Tasks is FREE. No paywall, no ads. Just pure productivity. I was looking for some task-management app which is free, since it was difficult to get a paid one. I found that this was the perfect solution for me. It's deeply integrated with other Google services like Gmail and Calendar. It can pick tasks with Gmail from emails, in the form of suggestions. It's up to you, completely. The tasks will appear in your calendar automatically, if it's time or date specific. It's simple and hassle free to insert tasks and complete them. The app loads fast and hardly faces any crash. I encountered no such crashes. It is present in multiple platforms. I would create a task in my phone, and would check it off on my laptop. It's hassle free to add and check off tasks. It was very helpful for me in college. Read full review Cons Asana is not really a project management tool, it is good for simple projects only UI has some glitches (doesn't save preferences, etc.) Integration with other tools (Office 365, MS Project) No reminders if the working period you entered is on holidays Read full review It may take some time & adjustments to build a workflow that covers your specific needs. Need a feature to hide tasks that are weeks or even months ahead into the future. Missing a full tab view where you can see all your different lists of tasks. Read full review Likelihood to Renew Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime. 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. Read full review Usability
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,
, 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.

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).

Since the app is free, we can't expect to get a great support. 1. The app does not even have a dedicated forum where other members can help each other. 2. The app only has a feedback option, which I rarely think visits the team. 3. Even after sending many feedbacks, you can't expect a reply. 4. In a nutshell, if you face any problem, you can just wait. Nothing more than that.

I like how extensive the capabilities are for Asana. With other softwares it seems there are many things lacking. I feel like Asana is also a very user friendly platform and aesthetically pleasing which is important in a modern office. We have many young people entering our workspace and it is important to have software that is ahead of the times in functionality and efficiency.

Google Tasks is not necessarily better than its competitors and certainly not as robust or complex as most to-do applications and platforms available in the market, but because it is automatically integrated into G Suite services--our primary technology interface--this free option has precluded us from needing to explore other tools that are often "better" but not as intuitive when so much time and focus is already spent within the Google ecosystem.

I used this tool on a daily basis at work and it runs as a solid rock
Read full review Return on Investment Productivity - Most of all, it allows me to be more productive and have a good sense of where I am with projects and deadlines. Easy to use - I can make the most of my time to get up (and stay) up and running. Project coordination - Allows me to assign tasks to my interns and communicate directly within the platform to keep the work train moving. Read full review It has a positive impact as its auto sync/ auto task creation helps users to manage their tasks/to do efficiently One negative impact is that it does not have integration with other apps/ email client's which can lead user to miss some of the important stuff/emails and to maintain them they have to either put everything in [Google Tasks] manually or have to rely on other tools to maintain Read full review ScreenShots
