Asana

I can not be happier. My team was using Basecamp but we outgrew it. We moved to Teamwork and clients stopped using it and so did my team. We were in Teamwork for just a month and decided we needed something better. We then found Asana and it has been a breeze since. My team was far happier and ready to use it and my clients started interacting with it again. It is simple to use, yet very powerful

TFS

TFS is well suited to developers and teams that work with Microsoft technologies and products. For other scenarios, alternatives like Git can deliver more powerful and reliable features. Also, developing software in branches is very difficult, as well as merging code. These tasks needs to be carefully planned to avoid broken code and headaches in your company.

Pros

  • Simplicity of user interface without neglecting functionality
  • Timeline and calendar views are extremely useful
  • Templates for repeatable projects

  • I like the Team Foundation Source Control Management much more compared to other Systems like GIT, because:
  • - Perfect Integration into Visual Studio
  • - Easy and direct checkout/check-in
  • - Perfect branching and merging
  • - Workflow Support with autmated Reminders
  • The Build System is just great. Since Version 2017 its very easy to integrate self made tools into the build process.
  • Easy Managament of Users and User Rights.

Cons

  • Nothing to note, really. We love it!
Barbara Carneiro profile photo
  • Integration between our help desk system and TFS was possible but not as easy as I would expect considering both are Microsoft products
  • Advanced reporting for dashboards could be made easier

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.

Because we are a Microsoft Gold Partner we utilize most of their software and we have so much invested in Team Foundation Server now it would take a catastrophic amount of time and resources to switch to a different product.

The complex permissions drags it down for me and since I nothing is perfect I'm subtracting one point for the permissions from my original score of 9.

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).

I have never used Team Foundation Server support from Microsoft. Finding help on the internet is quite simple if you know source control methodologies and terminology.

Do research beforehand and, if possible, do a trial run before implementing into production environment.

Alternatives Considered

Trello is really just more on boards and the con with that is if you list lots of task under one headboard some tasks are buried from the view since the boards are a bit big. I like the list feature of Asana, especially for project management. Trello on the other is a great platform for creative projects like graphics, book covers, and others since if you attached the file to board you can easily view the image. Asana though on my part allows me more freedom and more creativity since it has more features like calendar and priority level. Basecamp is more of casual way of arranging task. I don't like it that much.

I have only previously used Visual Source Safe, back in the early noughties within a very small development team, TFS is the natural evolution from Visual Source Safe which primarily was just a repository for source code. You can't really compare the two and MS released TFS as a complete replacement for Visual Source Safe.
