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.

Zoho Projects

Zoho Projects is a great solution for smaller companies looking to implement their first pass at task/bug tracking. It has more than enough functionality to last for a few years but is unlikely to be a tool that supports hundreds of users. It is especially suited for people who have limited experience implementing business applications because it is very simple to get up and running with the default implementation.

Pros

  • Cross-team communication is always a challenge, but Asana helps make information transparent and accessible to all members of the team.
  • It's easy to share with individuals outside of the organization and still control the flow of information.
  • Being able to link in other design resources like InVision prototypes is a huge time saver.
  • Integrating with Slack makes much of our necessary communication automatic.

  • We use it to manage our sales orders as there are lots of moving parts which are necessary to get client orders done properly.
  • I use it anytime I have a new idea I want to put into motion. As I can create a list for brainstorming, feedback, specific actions necessary in order to test and or implement the idea.
  • Unrelated to business, it's a great way to plan travel in order to make sure you don't forget those important things like passport, flight arrangement, client meeting confirmation, and meeting prep as far as what specific documents or things do you need to bring with you.
  • And since everyone is on the go and expected to keep up with work, the mobile/tablet app makes it a breeze to keep up, work on, and create new projects.

Cons

  • Emails: Asana can lead to inbox-overload. By default, you are subscribed to updates on any task that you create or follow. Updates include someone marking a task complete, leaving a comment on a task, or adding a file to a task. This means that if your coworker adds a file, makes a comment, then assigns the task back to you, then marks the task complete, you're looking at 4 emails in 10 seconds. You can always unsubscribe from emails or write rules to categorize them in your inbox, but the default setting will leave you inundated.
  • Assigning responsibility to multiple team members: It is possible to assign a task to multiple members of your team, but I don't like the way asana handles this. Rather than assigning the one task to multiple people, asana creates DUPLICATES of the original task. This can be frustrating because it creates redundancy.
  • Dependencies: Assigning dependencies is a new feature for asana. While it's great that this is now possible, it's pretty clear that it's not a focus for the software. The dependencies don't show up clearly in the list view, though they are obvious within the task view.
  • Overwhelming: This is probably more of a governance issue for my team specifically, but our Asana has gotten overwhelming. I count the flexibility of Asana as a pro, but it does come with risk. The lack of rules and controls leads to a "wild west" situation where anyone can organize tasks, projects, templates, etc. anyway they want. We have some team members organizing all their tasks by team function, others organizing tasks by project, others using entirely separate Asana workspaces, etc.

  • Some minor UI bugs in the web app and the mobile app (but can be fixed or patched).
  • No possibility of cloning or copying repetitive projects with all the content and people managing the projects (could help gain a lot of time especially on complex long projects with a lot of milestones and tasks).

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.

The interface is easy to learn! Spending a few minutes is all you need to get the basics. It's fun to explore all of the different paths to log hours and allows you to choose the path best for you. The exported task XLS has all of the information I want and need.

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

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.

In this case, I already use other Zoho products, so I didn't review others and stuck with the simplicity of linked tools.
