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.

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.

  • Nearly instant publication of product content onto ecommerce platforms that support API connections. As the number of these connections grows, this will become more powerful.
  • Salsify's support team is usually very helpful, and always friendly. Development is constantly ongoing.
  • My favorite aspect of Salsify is the ability to quickly see what information is missing from a given product. Using readiness reports to identify gaps helps the whole team focus on what is important within their sphere of responsibility.
  • Image transformation is powerful. In the past, we had to rename, resize, crop, etc. to meet different expectations. Now, we just program the right transformations, hit a button, and Salsify does the heavy lifting.

Cons

  • A complete lack of even the most basic reporting is a source of ongoing disappointment and frustration. I would like to know, at the very least, how many unarchived projects I have. It would be extremely helpful to know how many incomplete tasks there are, how many tasks are being completed per day or week, or any of those things. Asana doesn't tell you anything at all about what is going on inside of it. Even the filter dropdown, which shows a number of matching tasks for each tag filter includes both completed and incompleted tasks even if you have completed tasks hidden in that view. We have been on Asana for over a year-and-a-half with absolutely no reporting whatsoever beyond what we tracked manually in spreadsheets. This is without a doubt the single most annoying thing about using Asana.
  • The project list is an unmitigated, unsortable disaster if you have a large number of projects. Going through it is an hours-long chore of scrolling down, clicking "More Projects..." scrolling down and repeating over and over. To make matter worse, the most recently entered projects always appear at the bottom, so if you have any open but delayed/stalled projects, you'll have to scroll past them to get to the items you can actually get completed. Since projects have no defining characteristics unto themselves that allow any sorting options, you are ever at the mercy of the search box to find anything in any reasonable amount of time, and that search box carries its own set of tiny migraine-inducers.
  • The search box is fast enough to function, but not fast enough that you can actually click on things before the results change again as it searches through more items that match your terms. No less than twenty times a day do I search for a tag or project, then click (or arrow key down and hit enter) on the tag or project I am looking for in the results list just as it re-orders itself, causing me to have clicked on the wrong result. Then I have to type my search all over again. The search feature does not work for archived projects, either, so the only ways to find them are to search for a tag you know might be on that project, or scroll all the way down to the archived projects list at the bottom of the main projects list and then patiently hunt-and-peck for them as you scroll further still.
  • The API for integration, unlike the web app itself, is painfully slow. I don't know if it is because it wants to pull down every project every time (including archived ones) instead of just the ones you are looking to access or what, but our dev team has had one heck of a time getting it to stay online and functioning. Our integration breaks down regularly, and that affects our photography dispatch report, our automated generation of new tasks when a sale comes in, and our fledgling reporting system (which seems to return only zeroes and ones). Some of this is on our dev team to fix, but I have to blame a cumbersome API for most of the speed issues.

  • It needs more ability to limit viewing or editing of certain attributes by user or user class. I understand this is in the pipeline.
  • Responsive design. It is not usable on a phone (various iPhone n+ models). I NEVER prefer to work in Salsify on my phone, but it would be nice to be able to in a pinch.

I am only giving it a 9 because they are working on streamlining the uploading process to make things easier on our end - once this is complete I would most likely give it a 10!

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 and Monday are similar in that they are both task tracking softwares however I feel that Asana is a bit too simple for our team as opposed to Monday. Asana is great for a small to medium sized team, we are looking for a software that we can use across multiple departments which is why we are currently migrating from Asana to Monday

We have not used alternatives. None seemed to have the feature set that Salsify offered.

Return on Investment

  • Asana has allowed our team to improve out ability to complete tasks in a timely manner so it has to have been a benefit. I really don't see it being a hinderance in any manner.

  • Salsify increases our speed to release products to our customers.
  • Salsify is expensive. Worth it (so far), but expensive.
  • Increased visibility of content gaps.
