Asana

Asana is completely customizable! I would use it for almost all of my daily, weekly and one off tasks. It does take some time to start to think in "Asana-brain" rather than in "Email-brain." Asana works best when your whole team is on board and commits to using Asana as the main mode of internal communication. While it is easy to create templates out of tasks, you can't create project templates easily, so using it as a training module, for example, is difficult

We use it for two main use cases. One is a running installation instructions sheet that developers write up when they are finished with projects and quality assurance uses to install and test the changes. These directions are then given to IT for deployments. It allows for quick transfer of knowledge and lets everyone view and edit it live. The second use case is to store a OneNote Notebook that we call our cheat sheet. It is basically a searchable knowledge base for our team to make us more efficient and quicken new hire's startup time. It is not good for hosting files outside the Office suite such as Visio and coding files.

Pros

  • Asana has an easy to use UI. Even if you don't get into the advanced things Asana can do for your project management, it's super easy to use and keeps even the most basic task lists organized.
  • Asana lets you view your tasks in multiple views. You can view all the tasks assigned to you or all the tasks under a certain project (i.e. HR). It also lets you customize the views within each project by due date or by other customizable priorities.
  • Asana's email to task and Google Chrome extensions make getting tasks out of your email and into Asana super easy. I forward a large percentage of my emails directly to Asana so that I can prioritize how I choose to follow up and respond to requests in my inbox.

  • All my files are secure and not taking up space on any of my devices' hard drives.
  • You can create, edit and view folders, notes, to do lists, etc., on all your devices including your Windows PC, iOS devices and Android.
  • It is easy to share photos with. I upload photos from my computer and then have access to them almost anywhere. Downloading to Facebook is very easy to do.

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.

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.

This product is tightly integrated with our SharePoint and Outlook environment. The fact that it is as convenient as a cloud service that we are used to, but more secure is a winner.

Lots of useful features, if you can learn how to use them and actually implement it across enough of the team to adapt it

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

Asana lets you view things in tasks. Trello is more geared toward projects with their board layout. I find Asana to have the best user interface of all project management softwares. It may be missing some functionality (like budgeting and time tracking -- which you can add on with integrations), but I feel that I can actually use it. With the other project management tools I get frustrated by trying to figure them out that I don't use them at all

I use Google Drive as well for managing documents. Onedrive documents are almost similar to Google Drive documents but onedrive's interface is cleaner than Google Drive. Onedrive's support also replies in a timely manner and helps with any questions we have. Microsoft has improved its cloud based services a lot and is providing great applications with enhanced functionality.
