Overall Satisfaction with Asana
Asana is a great project management tool for complex projects with lots of tasks and lots of participants. It is quite customizable, though many of the visual tweaks need to be made each time—there isn't excellent/smooth "template" capability, which hinders its "out of the box" usability. However, when project plans are made thoughtfully, they can be exceptionally beautiful and well organized.
- Ability to hold editable information in multiple locations across a project plan. Steps, comments, sub-steps, etc.
- Ability to check off tasks with an audit log.
- Email reminders
- Different customizable views.
- I wish there were better "template" options. In order to streamline many projects with a similar look and feel, a lot of effort needs to go into creating a style guide for how they should be set up. This isn't critical but can maximize the use of Asana. However, with the granular effort it takes, and leaving room for human error when managing it, your projects can turn disorganized fairly quickly.
- There are numerous menus and views but they can get cluttered together. Similar to templates, I wish you could better customize all of the elements of views and what you see in menus.
- It can be cumbersome to use, so it's only partially utilized at our organization, but those who use it heavily, absolutely love it.
- It's easy for occasional users to log in and complete a task here or there.

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.
