Asana

Overall, despite its drawbacks, Asana works really well for our team. I think this is an appropriate [tool] for a mid-sized digital marketing firm, like ourselves. A software development team is going to want something more robust, like JIRA. However, if you're just shopping for an easy-to-learn tool that will help you manage responsibilities without relying on email? Asana is perfect. Its flexibility also makes it a great fit for most work-flows in almost any industry. Asana is simple out-of-the-box, but it does have robust functionalities that will allow your team to ramp up if desired.

LiquidPlanner

I think LiquidPlanner is best suited for workflows that involve multiple people, as it really emphasizes accountability. However, I can see it being useful to a single person working on a large project with lots of steps.

Pros

  • Multiple users can access the program at once without stepping on each other's toes or having to wait until someone is out a project to add something. It is definitely a group friendly program.
  • We like how visually pleasing it is. It is not at all intimidating to first-time users as it is very user-friendly. You can quickly find what you need and become comfortable with its features and functions.
  • I personally like being able to assign different tasks to different employees and be able to receive feedback and progress directly from that assigned person as well as view it myself.

  • LiquidPlanner's biggest strength is that it allows you to have a simple visualization of a complex workflow with the use of packages, project folders, tasks, etc. Long-term projects can be overwhelming, especially if you have to multitask. LiquidPlanner allows you to manage efficiently.
  • LiquidPlanner is a very powerful project management tool, but it allows you to use it in varying levels. The more data you want to give it, the more data it will give you, allowing you to perfect your team and project's workflow. The most notable example is time estimates. If you are able to estimate how much time certain tasks within a project take, you can roughly calculate how long the whole project will take. If kept up with, it can be extremely valuable to budget time and resources.
  • With its different ways of commenting, communication about specific portions of a project is very easy. The tagging system works really well, so that when you tag someone on a comment, they will get an email that will notify them, keeping the whole project moving along.

Cons

  • Little complex UX for beginners
  • Site is a little heavy to load
Jestin Sebastian profile photo
  • Assigning projects from 'Inbox' to actual clients is cumbersome.
  • No direct link to calendar view from main navigation.
  • Drag & drop functionality on calendar view would be helpful.
  • When logging time from a timer, the task disappears from the drop-down. This is an inconvenience if you need to mark the project finished.

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

I believe I'd see better results if mine was a larger organization. Scalability is the issue here, I'm not sure I'm getting as much out of it as I should.

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).

Support is the least impressive part of LiquidPlanner for me. Issues are resolved, but software bugs or suggested improvements are generally blown off or responded to condescendingly. This software updates more frequently than any other software we use, frequently during times we use the product (Saturday mornings). Often the updates result in aesthetic changes that seem pointless when there are bigger updates that would make using the product easier, which should be a higher priority.

Alternatives Considered

Asana Board is really awesome and assigning tasks is ultra easy. I can manage multiple projects without headaches.

LiquidPlanner is far more robust. Basecamp worked great for managing smaller projects, but LiquidPlanner was a great improvement as our company and project management needs grew.

  • It cut time spent managing projects by about 75% over the previous software we used, which was more suited to small companies with far fewer tasks.
  • Provides an easy to update and clear measure of all project status at any given moment, this has resulted in team members being prepared well in advance of deadlines.
  • Less stress for project managers who can see all job progress and allotted resources with the click of a button.
