Asana

Asana functions particularly well in scenarios with well-established teams with well-established processes and a mature SDLC. The reason is that Asana can be configured to do many, many different things, and be used in many, many different ways, and with that power comes a lot of responsibility to figure out your process before you try and automate it. It's software, not magic.

DaPulse is far better than other tools that I've used when it comes to ease of use and appearance. It is very user-friendly and can be used for quick at-a-glance updates. It works well for my personal organization of social media posts, blog ideas, brainstorming, and asset tracking. I have not found it particularly helpful for scheduling my days.

  • Team Collaboration - It's easy to add notes, upload files and create follow up tasks within DaPulse.
  • Personal Organization - The ability, for me personally, to add my own tasks is invaluable. I can quickly flip from personal to professional tasks and evaluate what needs my attention most urgently.
  • Accountability - Easily assigning tasks to a new team member, asking for input and ensuring that projects are being completed on time.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Monday definitely does have a learning curve. I watched the intro webinar but I was still unclear on how to perform certain tasks. I really had to get in there and play with things. I messed up a few boards the first time I tried it out. I wish there were a more in depth instructional PDF, video, or webinar. There is just so much to know and it is a waste of time when you don't know what you're doing.
  • There is a search on Monday but I still find it difficult, at times, to find files I'm looking for simply by using the search function. I'm not sure how this could be improved but I'm not 100% in favor of this function.

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

It is very forward and intuitive, it does not do much either though.

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

We also use Active Collab to track tasks and issue work tickets. I find this to be a much harder tool to use vs. Asana. It was not in the drop down menue above but its a tool we actively use and I can tell you its hard to find tickets once you have created them and assigned them unless you keep the link in an email. Asana is easy to locate all your tasks and due dates because of your personal dash and projects list. Active collab requires you to create too many levels for one task, the main ticket, then the tasks within the ticket which you have to individually create to be able to track each milestone, if there is no task assigned it doesnt appear in the designers list of things to do, which in turn creates issues and forgotten tasks. None of this is an issue with Asana.

Dapulse is really nice to look at and can be customized well. It seems to focus on representing work and information which makes it a unique tool and eliminates alot of the complexity of other tools out there

Return on Investment

  • I definitely feel more organized and more effective when I'm assigned a task via Asana. It makes it easier to keep track of than email. I also work off-location from the rest of the team.

  • This was just an assessment for us and we decided not to move forward with it.
