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.

OnBoard is an adaptable platform that could be used for most meetings. It works perfectly to build an agenda and packet for board and committee meetings. It allows for easy RSVP to ensure a quorum at meetings. All users are able to easily view the packet and can even make notations of points they want to discuss during the meeting. OnBoard doesn't work well for detailed documents such as spreadsheets. Our company has a strategic plan and we cannot use OnBoard for that committee meeting. The size of the spreadsheet simply doesn't function well within OnBoard and isn't easily navigable. The same is true of certain financial spreadsheets.
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 Secure board materials - the administrator can control what board members see what materials. Contact information - email and mailing addresses are readily available. Board terms - term lengths for every board member is tracked through the system. Meeting feedback - simple surveys are sent immediately after a meeting to get feedback from meeting attendees for future planning. 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 Currently, you cannot block an entire group from a topic; you need to block attendees individually. it would be nice to indent a section by using tabbing. the added button for "save changes" in each section tends to slow down progress; edits used to be saved automatically and tended to be faster. 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
I couldn't imagine us doing our business without OnBoard [Board Management]. It has become the way we communicate with our Board and run our meetings. Frankly, I have no desire to go back even when we are meeting in person to paper binders for each board member. It truly has been a blessing coming out of COVID for us.

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.

OnBoard is extremely user-friendly. I believe many individuals could begin using it without instruction just by clicking and looking around. It is very intuitive and the setup makes sense. I have older members on my board and they can use OnBoard with no issue and no training beyond an initial overview. During the pandemic, I've had some new board members easily use it without instruction since we weren't able to meet in person for an overview.

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 haven't needed to contact OnBoard customer support many times because it's user-friendly and functions as it's supposed to/sold. On the occasions I've contacted customer support, they have promptly answered the phone or my email. In one instance, a board member couldn't access OnBoard prior to a board meeting and customer support was able to resolve the issue in the 10 minutes prior to the meeting. In another instance, a board member wasn't able to get the system to recognize all answers to a completed survey which prevented a compilation of results. Customer support viewed the member's screen and ran an error log to figure out the issue.
Read full review Implementation Rating
Implementation was easy and I was able to do it alone without OnBoard customer support, although customer support assistance was offered and available. The platform is very user-friendly and doesn't require assistance to implement in my opinion. The biggest hurdle is getting invitees to access the invitation email and set up their login.

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.

OnBoard is more user-friendly. It is very easy to navigate from an administrator's standpoint as well as for the end-user. I received compliments on a regular basis from our board members and how grateful they are that it is so easy to use. They also love having the Resources where all of our important documents are located. Other tools that I have used were very clunky and hard to navigate and the cost was greater higher.

I used this tool on a daily basis at work and it runs as a solid rock

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.
