Likelihood to Recommend

Asana

Asana keeps you on track and helps you prioritize projects and to-dos. I like that you can see what you've previously worked on and accomplished. It's less appropriate for teams who are very active inside their email, like Outlook, and prefer to use the Tasks function already in their email software. Asana is rewarding to teams and helps projects be completed on time

If an organization needs something free for project management, then I always recommend Trello. If they're wanting a tool strictly used internally by their team that their customers will not have access to, then this is also a great fit for them. If they need something with more reporting or customization, then I would suggest Monday.com.

Pros

Asana

  • The best tools of Asana are found once we start a project, since the calendar that is integrated into our mail is super easy to use and we use it as a small agenda.
  • The management of projects is incredible, the monitoring provided is one of the best in its category, since it facilitates group work.
  • The creation and assignment of tasks, notifications and that each person can enter to work no matter where it is since it has a good mobile and web interface.

Trello

  • Trello has an intuitive interface for organizing boards and tasks. The kanban-style layout of the boards is simple and logical - categories are arranged left to right, tasks are arranged from top to bottom. It only takes seconds to understand the goals of the interface with minimal experience needed.
  • The interactions within Trello feel natural and are consistent with what you would expect - double clicking to edit, drag and drop to move, etc. The interactions aid, rather than inhibit, my usage of Trello.
  • Theming - Trello allows users to theme their accounts/boards. When using multiple boards, it is awesome to not only customize the board to look and feel they way you want it to, but it also allows me to know exactly which board I am viewing at a glance.

Cons

Asana

  • Asana does a lot, so it can sometimes be hard to find the right place to be to find the tools you need.
  • Organization is only as good as you make it and just because a system makes sense to the person that creates it does not mean it will make sense to anyone else.
  • It can be challenging to find the information you need via search.

Trello

  • Some of the deeply nested actions are a little hard to get at, and not organized in the most logical way. A specific example of this is deleting a task - it is first set to "Archived", which forces the user to click again to "Delete". This process seems a bit verbose for such a simple task.
  • Icons are a bit overused in the interface, making some of the actions they represent a little obscure. The most glaring example of this is the large "+" at the top right of the interface. What am I adding? a Board? a Card? a Task? I like interfaces that allow for discovery, but something as simple as 'adding' anything should be immediately clear.
  • As well as Trello handles the kanban-view, I would love to see other styles of views for my cards and tasks. I am not exactly sure how other views would be accomplished, but I would love to see list views, calendar views, and even 'joined' views, where cards can have linked dependencies.

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.

I'm not in charge of such a decision, but I am sure that we will continue to use Trello for the same purposes we have in the past.

It's been great. Outside of the recent system outages recently, they've been super easy to use. I love their mobile app. It makes it so if I have an idea when I'm not at work or near my computer I can open the app and add it to the project and never miss a beat.

If you set it up well, it would be a 10 in usability. If you don't set it up correctly, it's hard to blame Trello, except that they don't make a system that automatically meets your needs. It certainly isn't for everyone and every project, but I give it high marks because it can be made useful in the right hands for nearly any project.

Have never needed to get in touch with the support on Asana and I think that's more than most SaaS companies can say. I'm sure they get enquiries from enterprise clients but for a small-to-medium business like us, it's perfect and no additional support has been needed.Asana also has a brilliant user forum and blogs explaining everything you might have a question on.

I have not had to use support from Trello yet. However, I do see that it has a couple of spots to contact them. They do not hide their contact information. Additionally, the emails they send out are helpful and may help people avoid the need for support. I can't give them a 10 out of 10 because I haven't used it.

For our small business, getting a few of us started well on Trello was the key, I think. As long as a couple of us were really comfortable with the interface, we could lead others and help them with any questions. From now on, anyone who works with us just naturally uses Trello for information sharing - it's just part of what we do.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

Outlook Outlook can track tasks. However, it's not very collaborative; you can send tasks to other people but you can see what them after that. This feature as part of Outlook was a disaster. The only benefit that currently exists is that it was free; it never really fit in with what we wanted.Wunderlist When we looked at this, it was a better application for tasks than Outlook. However, it still was really hard to use as a team (it seemed better suited for an individual). It was simpler to use (and lacked some of the depth of objects) that was a positive but we couldn't figure out how to get the mobile app and the desktop app to sync really well. TodoTXT This was the simplest product to use. It also meant that it lacked all the nice features of the other application.

Trello is just very easy to get start with and use. Asana is also a great tool, and I have used it for a while, but Trello offers more visual representation of our task management, so we decided to go with Trello. It was a good decision, as we are happy with it.
