We use Asana as a project management tool, as we have offices all over the country. It is a great organizational tool to help make sure that tasks are being completed between departments on project. It's also a time saver as it reduces inbox clutter from a bunch of reply-all e-mail chains.
  • Easy to organize tasks and assign to other people.
  • I like that you can duplicate tasks and projects, which is a huge time-saver for repetitive projects.
  • I like the different options available for notifications. Personally I don't like inbox clutter, so I turned off all notifications, and just rely on the browser indicator to let me know if there is something that needs to be addressed on Asana.
  • I love the ability to attach files within tasks, and the storage capabilities of the entire platform.
  • Installing Asana on different browsers has caused multiple computers in the office to experience problems. I think this is getting better, but it was a big problem.
  • Setting up privacy settings is a little confusing.
  • A lot of the features aren't used by people who are not as tech-savvy.
  • Increased communication between departments on projects.
  • Decreased clutter in employee's inboxes!
  • More efficient project management process.
Our company has never used a project management tool before. I had used Asana at a previous company and was highly impressed with the capabilities of it (even at the early stages of development), so when the idea came around to start utilizing a web based project management tool, I recommended Asana.
We have been using the free version of Asana, as it suits our needs just fine. We have not looked into the paid version of Asana as we do not have enough employees to justify needing that many users on our platform. When we get to the point where we will need more than 15 users, we will most definitely purchase Asana for continued use.
This is a great tool to use for projects that span across departments, or when there are timelines that need to be met before other tasks can be completed. This is also a great tool for management of employee's activity and progress of tasks, as you can easily monitor their work without them having to constantly update you or you having to constantly ask for updates.
