Overall Satisfaction with Asana

My agency as a whole uses Asana. It's where we track PTO, manage projects and assign responsibilities. The amount that we use Asana though depends on which account team I'm on. For instance, some Project Managers are very diligent about using Asana and assigning colleagues tasks, while others don't use the platform at all. Of the teams I'm on that do take advantage of Asana, I feel like those accounts are the most integrated, require the most collaboration and have very organized PM's that manage us/the platform.
  • User-friendly, intuitive platform
  • Helps to clearly define roles and responsibilities
  • Easily manage workflow and tasks
  • Better social content calendar planning capabilities
  • Easier syncing of calendars between team PTO and agency PTO
  • Easier adjustment of email notification settings
  • Employee efficiency
  • Project/workflow transparency
I currently use Trello to manage social content instead of Asana. It's very easy to view content, drag and drop cards/tasks and tag colleagues in items that need attention. However, I prefer Asana from a project management standpoint and think that it's a much superior platform overall. Our agency uses Lattice for people management and performance reviews, which is different than Asana but I think functions similarly. There are places to input goals/tasks, enter in updates and view progress on outstanding items.

Asana is great for project management. It allows people to see exactly what is needed of them, when deadlines are and who is responsible for what. On teams that are integrated or require a lot of cross-channel communication, this is a great platform to bring everything together in one space so everyone can be aware and held accountable. I've personally tried using Asana for social content calendar management, and it was a very manual, time-consuming effort that I ended up abandoning. I think this is an area where either I can learn more about how to manage clients' social content on Asana (simply because I don't know/was doing my best guess) or it can be a better capability overall.
