Overall Satisfaction with Asana


We use
Asana to manage a few aspects within our small business. The tool works
great for having virtual meetings where a task can be used to capture the
meeting minutes and sub-tasks can be used to allocate the action plan items
to the specific meeting delegates. We also use Asana for high-level strategy
and goal setting as well as day-to-day task allocation and tracking.
  • Task allocation and Tracking
  • Virtual Meeting management covering the agenda, feedback and next action steps
  • Task collaboration with a wide range of features to keep all kinds of task info in one space
  • User experience with task views in list or kanban format
  • Some users might find the user interface a bit dull and un inspired
  • We found the way to use multiple workspaces a bit confusing
  • It takes quite a bit of planning to build a well organized workspace in order not to have way too many projects and tasks all over the place
  • Task allocation
  • Task tracking
  • Remote Collaboration features
  • Collaborative goal setting gets everyone on board
  • Having the progress information always available to the whole team drives productivity
  • Saves loads of time having tasks, schedule, feedback and supporting document in one place
Trello's look and feel could be more attractive for the creatives but Asana provides a more "logical" approach which is appealing to the technical types. It feels like Trello provides more degrees of freedom of use which could make collaboration a bit less structured and could make it harder for a new team member to effectively contribute.

Do you think Asana delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Asana's feature set?

Yes

Did Asana live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Asana go as expected?

No

Would you buy Asana again?

Yes

I believe for a new user it would be great to start with one, relatively small, project with a maximum of 3 collaborators. This would allow a quick tutorial or two to get them going and get good value from the platform. If the individuals liked the experience, then Asana would really be useful in taking on a larger project or even a few projects in parallel.
