Our team has evaluated several team collaboration tools. If your organization (five or more) needs a place where your team can collaborate, track tasks, track time, manage users and come together to get something done, Asana is going to be one of our top recommendations. The ability to see progress in a project, integrate Asana into the rest of your workflow and tools, document notes and processes inside of the process, duplicate boards and projects, and manage the process is pretty well planned. Note: It's more vital for you to know your processes and how your team works before picking out a software tool for it. However, we still recommend Asana highly.

Asana is NOT a good fit for you if you have a smaller team, don't have reliable processes, don't like seeing user management or task boards, or are looking for a free tool.

If you are working with a cross-functional team with multiple projects on the go regularly, Asana is a lifesaver. Everything can be shared in one place. Delegation is a breeze. Communication happens in real-time.

If you and your employees all have unchanging duties daily, this probably isn't something you need in your organization. You could adapt it and use it as a "checklist software" but I wouldn't see much value in paying for it if you won't use it to manage projects.

Asana is best suited for groups that have multiple projects running concurrently. It allows a business organization to quickly shift projects or tasks to other individuals when certain employees or departments get bogged down. Keeping quality notes on progress allows you to see the status at an immediate glance. We couldn't maintain our efficiency without it.

Asana is well suited for an organization that has employees working in distance with each other. It is also well suited for organizations that may have multiple projects going on at one time, with various schedules and due dates. We think the organization Asana has provided has been key to our success.

This product is well suited for teams where different folks are collaborating on assignments and there needs to be a clear outline as to who is working on what. It helps set very transparent expectations for progress and follow up. It may not be necessary for non-collaborative environments.

The ideal application for this product is when you have team members that need to work closely together but are separated by thousands of miles and in some cases by languages. We like the English option and feel this tool has increased our ability to communicate faster and more accurately as a team, which makes us look good to our bosses.

Asana is best suited in the environment of development where the need is rapid development and results. The communication and team designing are quick with their dashboard. Asana proves to be most powerful in terms of software development at same time it does not suit for small scale projects where we need to follow traditional waterfall models.

Asana would seem to work well for anything other than assets or for a creative team. We may go back to Basecamp for communication and delivery of assets. We have many teams using this but not much collaboration which can create duplicate work, additional emails, and overall a longer turnaround time.

If you are a manager or a team lead, Asana is one of the finest applications for managing, tracking task that keeps you in control of your deliverables. It also keeps track and records historical data and tasks. You can also refer to old similar issue if you have across in the past. It also allows you to merge, duplicate or delete a particular task. For quick review, Asana also has a mobile app that can be downloaded.

Asana is exceptionally well suited to replace your daily notebook or pile of post-its. Ease of use and access mean it is always there for you and won't slow you down. Meeting agendas and shared notetaking have really improved our office. The only areas it falls short are in calendar management and communication. I would be thrilled if I could move further away from Outlook in my daily work, but Asana just doesn't quite do it.

Project management, especially with multiple users! You can clearly specify who is responsible for each task, and they can complete it. Participants can have a dialog with comments and pass tasks between each other. It's an easy way to manage projects and analyze accountability.

In my experience, Asana solved a lot of problems where I work, a growing department at a growing company. When we had fewer clients (or small clients) it was easy to work without a friendly project management tool, but when clients got bigger and we started to [have] A LOT our work became messy and stressful. I think it's a well suited tool when your area or your company gets bigger.

Asana is well-suited for remote teams who work on multiple projects at once. You don't have to be an expert to use Asana. It's very user friendly and adaptable for organizations.

Asana is well suited for a scenario where employees need to be scheduled tasks for individual priority and concern. Asana does this very well. I don't think an employer who let's say only has two or three employees working on two or three tasks would find much use for this program.

Asana's enterprise version is very powerful for working among teams. However, due to the nature of employees and students sharing .edu emails, we are unable to use the enterprise version and keep it private to just employees without students having access. Because of that, the module that we use has some limitations.

In the beginning, I already said Asana is the definitive solution for teamwork. This program adapts very well to the needs of the group, making it easy to share files without having to use the company's email. All together we work better by assigning ourselves tasks and sub-tasks and setting the time to do them. Things get more relaxed.

This is great for group project management with people in many different locations. It keeps items easy to view and organized either by the project or the person doing specific tasks within the project. Great for communicating when things are done or on hold or when they cannot be accomplished. Not great for the small projects but absolutely wonderful for the large ones.

Asana is great for organizing and setting up tasks for multiple teams. It's good for setting up daily and longer-term tasks for employees. It has a very simple team structure. We just had some issues with mobile use but otherwise a fine product.

Asana is well suited for companies with employees in different time zones. Everyone starts work at a different time but with the tasks assignment system, everyone knows when a task is required to be completed and when it can be started. I think Asana works among cross-functional teams too. For example, if the marketing department needs design work to be done before handing off to an outside agency for advertisement, people from different teams are involved. The project owner can scope out the entire project and start assigning tasks to stakeholders. And when the stakeholders get the assigned tasks, it is easy to communicate among the entire organization if they have comments or issues through the assigned task. Best of all, everyone is held accountable for the tasks assigned to them. If a due date is changed or if tasks are not completed, managers can hold the task owner accountable for the delay. I find that Asana also makes employees more accountable for their actions if they know that everyone involved in the project is aware of their actions or inaction.

The program is a great tool for anyone who has trouble managing projects and teams across a large organization. With many people on a project, email communications can get scrambled and confusing with so many different means of communication. With Asana, everyone can communicate through the program and see what everyone is working on.

Asana is well suited for some big projects where a lot of team members are involved and it helps us to keep track of all team members task progress and see a complete picture of whether we are heading in the right direction or not. So it is better for big projects for the whole team.

Asana is well suited to organize tasks within a project that involves multiple people. It is easy to assign certain jobs to those people that have been invited to the working group on the platform and then receive feedback, updates, and comments when those tasks have (or have not!) been completed. It would benefit from having sub-tasks that could be completed, which then automatically re-assigns the whole project back to the creator, like proofreading for example.

Asana is helpful for anyone (individual or team) who needs a visual way to keep track of upcoming tasks. It's perfect for teams who need to be able to see what other large projects team members are working on. I would say it's not going to be particularly helpful if you need to have lots of visible details for a particular task. You can keep them in the notes section but you need to click on that task to see the whole thing. Other than that, it's pretty great!
