Organizing and controlling our professional and personal activities is a reality with Asana.
Kommentare: Asana has given me many satisfactions in regards to the administration of jobs and routines that are carried out in the company, among these benefits that this system offers us is that our projects never stop, since the members of our team will always be fulfilling their roles, because they can work in their homes and even from where they are. Another success of this platform is through the task management software we can perform individual tasks without the need to have them associated with a common project, it is also very functional.
Vorteile: Asana is an excellent platform for managing tasks and projects whose functions have allowed me to solve everything related to organization, planning and control of the processes carried out by our work groups and the roles that each one must fulfill, so that my projects are an reality. This system allows me to customize tasks and projects, if i want the tasks to be repeated i can create a checklist, where i can copy and paste each time i use them, with this function i save a lot of time by having everything structured in the form of templates. Another very important aspect i like is that with Asana i can reduce amounts of emails and meetings that used to be done with members or members of a team to evaluate their activities, in this way we can track the progress of the tasks.
Nachteile: Asana has a detail that does not allow us to change our projects once they have started, it also has a excesive amount of options which can be a bit confuse, thats make the learning curve a bit steep.

Good solution to accelerate the workflow
Neyda jose M.
Kommentare: At first it was not simple to adapt to this tool but due to the high interactivity that is had when assigning tasks, establishing deadlines and conversing and exchanging files with the users who have been assigned for the elaboration of tasks is simple and comfortable use the tool because its use has become an advantage, since with it you can track the status of each task or project to know how advanced it is or if changes have been made, also the workflow is really accelerated.
Vorteile: Asana is a software that I like for different reasons one of them is that it is a tool that not only works to accelerate the workflow but also allows team collaboration and this is because as users we can choose who to invite, what task assign, what deadline that person has for delivery and even interact with them by means of comments that help with their doubts, besides it is not necessary for the user to be in a predefined place since this software is available for mobile devices and is as well as it can be accessed from any place to continue advancing projects or assignments and the best thing is that every change that is necessary to communicate to those who are participating in this project can be done through email or internal channels and there is no limit with respect to the tasks that must be performed and this makes it suitable to carry out the development of any type of company.
Nachteile: Asana, despite being really useful and efficient to carry out task management is not perfect because it is a tool that has a really high learning curve so to understand each function it is necessary to take time to navigate its interface and gradually getting to know the options it offers and thus find the workflow that best suits the needs of the user.

Exceptional Project Management & Organization Tool (Even the Free Version!)
Kommentare: Last year I was in desperate need of better life organization. I needed a bona fide, comprehensive project management system. I researched many options, hoping to find a platform that had a robust free option (not just another annoying single-feature gateway to get me to chalk up money for the premium version). I read that Asana was widely used and highly recommended. I tried it for myself, and I was not disappointed! First my business partner and I used it to get a better handle on our business operations. Then I also began using it for my daily personal to-do lists as well as other side projects. It's a wonderful thing to consolidate many systems into one, and that's exactly what Asana has provided.
-- Beautiful interface that is intuitive to navigate; the hierarchy is well-organized, allowing you to categorize things into workspaces, projects, tasks, sub-tasks, and so on.
-- Easy to add team members and has great functions for collaborating, including being able to assign tasks, comment on your or others' progress, assign due dates, etc.
-- Customizable views to help arrange the content exactly how your brain prefers it.
-- Can view tasks in either a List View or a Calendar View, both of which are very helpful in different ways.
-- Amazing functionality for the free version! The developers don't shortchange you by offering only a few weak features for free.
-- In the year+ I've been using Asana, the developers have been steadily improving it. They seem very dedicated to the success of this tool and truly responding to the needs of their users.
Nachteile: -- I would like to see the notifications aspect of Asana fine-tuned a bit. You can receive notification emails about the tasks assigned to you, but they are limited to three pre-set timeframes. I do use the desktop version of the app and hoped that would help provide pop-up notifications, but I don't believe it does. Ideally for me, the system should be as automated as possible and not require manual checking-in.

Work on important tasks with Asana
Kommentare: We definitely recommend Asana for people, who work in big teams or who are willing to be in time for their products. In addition, this service is very easy to use and understand, so you have all the chances to organize your work at a high level.
Vorteile: There is no doubt that Asana service makes our life easier with no doubts. This tool systemizes and organizes all notes and plans in one list and holds this information in one place. It makes the work process faster and transforms everything into the smoothly running system. Due to this, it is possible to manage weekly or monthly goals without a stop. In addition, Asana's boards are very useful and convenient. With a help of Asana, there is no need to look for all your notes, emails and records to manage your projects. All significant things are kept in one secure place. As a result, you can easily coordinate all important tasks and projects.
Nachteile: We need to say that Asana has more pluses than minuses. However, there are some drawbacks that should be fixed. Firstly, notifications work with a delay or don’t work at all. In order to get them, you need to open Asana constantly in order to stay up to date with your goals. Secondly, Asana's mobile app should be totally improved. It is a little bit buggy and fails to keep pace with desktop software.

Great for individual and team tasks - UI could use some work
Kommentare: We are using Asana to manage ongoing large projects involving multiple team members, including setting deadlines and sharing document links. It's been a mostly positive experience that has helped us keep tabs on progress and save time.
Vorteile: The task creation process is smooth and mostly intuitive - it's easy to set due dates, assignments, and descriptions. I also like the ability to set permissions on a project basis, so I can keep a private task list as well as contributing to public projects.
Nachteile: Viewing lists of tasks can be more difficult than it needs to be at times; my biggest frustration is with sub-tasks. There's no easy way to view all the subtasks within a project at a glance - they're only visible when clicking into a parent task. I'd also appreciate the ability to assign a single task to multiple people, instead of duplicating it.

Task Management for Teams
Vorteile: The search function is pretty good at finding every task or file related to your search query (even on completed tasks). Tagging projects and tasks helps our team keep campaigns organized instead of just floating around somewhere in Asana. When you upload images, they upload with a thumbnail preview so you can see what the file is before even opening it. The addition of "boards" allows our team to move projects from one stage to the next and is a nice visual element to Asana. The "copy task" functionality saves me time on repeated tasks, which is huge for me each week. The abiilty to "pin to top" is especially helpful for long threads because you can keep important messages and/or files in clear view instead of buried within a long conversation back and forth with team members. Finally, the two-verification method when deleting a task is nice because the platform doesn't just get rid of something immediately--it makes you confirm it before deleting it from the backend.
Nachteile: The biggest drawback of Asana for me is the inability to edit comments. Users can only delete and type a new one. This seems like a simple thing to add especially when followers and @ mentions get an email notification of every new update to a task.

An Organization Miracle for Remote Teams
Vorteile: I like the fact that I can divide a project into tasks and really keep track of everything. For example, I know that if I'm building a campaign, there are several smaller projects within that like creating ads, building social media packages, designing content, etc. Rather than having an item on my list saying "Marketing Campaign" or creating a list of the work it involves, I can create an overall project called "Marketing Campaign" and every task required to complete that project is listed beneath it with due dates attached and a team member assigned to each task. We can even communicate with one another on each task to request status updates, provide resources/documents, etc. And once a task is complete, you can check it off as done and it will automatically be removed from the project.
Nachteile: I don't like it that a team member has to be "following" a project to see updates. I think that the purpose of this feature is to limit the amount of project notifications that users receive to include only those that they follow - which is good. But there is no reminder once you add a project to the system that you need to add everyone that you want to see this project as a follower. So, members of my team (especially those who are new to Asana) will be leaving comments or questions on a project, not realizing that unless they add someone as a follower, no one will see their note.

A wonderful work management tool.
Trinidad rebeca C.
Kommentare: It helps to keep an order in all the personal and professional projects, they can be mixed in the same workspace, although they can also be carried separately, it is also very good for the project manager, since it allows them to organize their entire team of Work efficiently and monitor the progress of the project at any time.
Vorteile: Asana is a wonderful tool to manage projects, and work teams, in a simple and quite customizable way, what I like the most is that you can assign tasks, and subtasks in a personal way which allows you to take full control at all times, also the notifications system is quite specific, and configurable which facilitates being informed at all times of the changes in the projects, another feature that I like is the calendar, which allows to see more graphically all the tasks to be done, in addition to It also has a tab that allows you to see all available files in all projects, which facilitates access to them.
Nachteile: It is difficult to find something negative in this tool, since it is quite complete, the only detail to highlight is the large number of notifications that are sent, however these can be disabled in their majority, another question is that being so customizable and having So many functions the learning curve can be something steep.

Asana: tracking your projects never was so easy
Kommentare: I've been using Asana for 3 years now. It's easy to use, you don't need to explain new collegues how to use it because it's very intuitive. Working with different teams in the same project got better, our communication improved and clients are happier, as results come faster now.
Vorteile: Its user interface is great, is to easy to use! Also, is a nice software to develop projects where many teams need to be involved. Task tracking is good, commenting and sharing files is easy and it has an integration with Everhour.
Nachteile: Some features need to be added manually, as priority and such. Also, you need to download the app if you want to use the software in your mobile and I don't have more space for dowloading apps in my phone, I prefer logging in my navigator.

Asana vs. Producteev
Asana and Producteev have been at each other's throats for the last few years now, but some of the key features that make a task management app excel remain in Asana territory. Here's why:
WHAT BOTH APPS DO
- Integrate with Sunrise (the only calendar app out there that makes you go, "finally, a calendar done right").
- Apply a top-to-bottom information architecture to the concept of productivity that goes as follows:
- Workspace (Asana) or Network (Producteev) - think of these as departments or teams.
- Projects - this is essentially a bundle of tasks.
- Subtasks - ie. the task "clean bedroom" might have subtasks "fold clothes" and "vacuum floor".
- Allow conversations within tasks. Here, you can add comments, links to web documents, etc. WHAT ONLY ASANA DOES - Assign people, not only to projects and tasks, but to subtasks as well. In other words, with Asana, the task “clean bedroom” can be broken down by assigning subtasks - Stan to “fold clothes”, Kyle to “file papers”, Eric to “clean bathroom”, and Kenny to “vacuum floor”. In Producteev, subtasks cannot be assigned. You can only assign the entire task to, which makes it hard to identify who’s doing what. - Create a task description. Just like with Facebook newsfeeds, people’s comments and notes can get lost in the mix when working on a project with 4 or more people.
Stan - “Where’s the link to the Google Doc?”
Kyle - “I sent it to you.”
Stan - “When?”
Kyle - “Scroll up the comments to like 2 days ago.”
Stan - “Oh, there it is… thanks.”
Sometimes you just need a fixed (not streaming) space to put relevant information that you don’t want floating away down the river. Calendar links, Document links, Google Maps links… this is the perfect place for those. SUMMARY - All in all, I believe Asana definitely wins in the task management game by just a few features, but those features just so happen to be the ones that count.
- Enables you to assign people to tasks AND subtasks (Producteev does not)
- Enables you to make notes and comments, all in a conversational view.
- Provides a task description pane for your static information (Producteev does not).
- It used to allow you to invite 30 members per workspace for free. Now it allows for 15 invitations.
- There is no Mac App for Asana (although it works smoothly in Chrome, Safari, Mozilla, Opera, and IE).

Fantastic, non-visual project/task manager
Kommentare: We started using Asana when we had just a handful of employees and clients. We needed something easy-to-use, but powerful, since we were using it as both a client support portal (think alternative to Zendesk or Basecamp), but also for our project and task management software. Clients submitted bugs and requests. We prioritized and assigned to developers.
Vorteile: What I described above sounds like every project management software tool out there. Where Asana really shines is in the communication. We literally replaced email with this tool—both between clients and our internal account managers, and between our account managers and other internal team members, such as developers. Commenting and conversation around each task or sub-task was easy, intuitive, and centralized. The ability to easily categorize using tags and creating sections allowed our process and flow to change several times while the system didn't break a sweat. The pricing is fantastic compared to many systems and, once you get acquainted with the interface, the system is so flexible that you'll find yourself using it for things you may not have intended. We have used it for weekly meeting agenda managment, for a CRM, for a wiki-replacement, and of course for personal task management.
Nachteile: The reason we ultimately ended up adding another project management tool to our toolset (Targetprocess), is that our developers needed a visual task board that could span several projects, not just a higher level story board. While we could achieve this using tags, it wasn't what the software was built for. It's less visual nature (I'm referring to kanban board like software, such as Trello or Targetprocess).

Stay organized both personally and professionally.
Kommentare: My experience with Asana has been quite positive, although at the beginning it was difficult for me to adapt to the large number of functions that it offers, soon I learned to use them efficiently, now with the workspaces, I can better organize my time, and take Carry out personal and professional projects with coworkers in a more organized and efficient way.
Vorteile: It is my ideal tool when organizing my tasks, projects, etc. What I like most about Asana is that allows me to create workspaces, and always keeps me up to date with new notifications, it is also quite useful for teamwork since it has many functions that allow me to track the tasks of each member of the team, has counters, notifications, assignments of tasks to each participant of the group, also allows me to divide large tasks, into subtasks which allows to divide large tasks into smaller ones and to be assigned more specifically, one or more members .
Nachteile: It is not something negative, but if one aspect to consider, is that asanas can be something complex to use at the beginning due to the large number of functions offered.

Simple & Effective Project and Team Collaboration
Kommentare: Asana values simplicity, collaboration and effectiveness, and this is what makes it such an attractive platform. We tried a number of other project management platforms for our small team, many with more traditional corporate features than Asana, but after a while the motivation to use these platforms dropped, and it became a chore to use them. Asana was a breath of fresh air for my team with its easy to use and intuitive interface. It allows for rapid task creation and assignment that works just as easily for an individual as for a team. We use it to 'dump' all of our ideas and to-dos, and then we can sort them into projects, etc... We even keep our team meeting minutes in Asana, and carry over the past un-completed action items to the next meeting. Simple drag and drop. If you're interested, Asana has a forever free package for up to 5 users, which is more than enough for you to get a feel of what the platform is like. I suggest you give it a try.
- Intuitive and simple interface
- Ease of use; uses standard SaaS operating procedures so users can figure things out quickly
- My staff actually like to use it because it's so easy vs. other platforms they said the looks demotivated them
- Simple permission based projects and following capabilities
Nachteile: There are not too many cons for Asana. People who might criticize that it doesn't have things like built in gantt chart (they can use Instagannt app) are mistaking features for PM methodology, and Asana values simplicity. That being said the one thing I would like to see from Asana would be more integrations; specifically, I would like to see more integrations on the attachment side. It would be great if they could attach files from Office 365 or notes from Evernote (right now Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box).

a miracle for the disorganized -- you just gotta commit!
Aaron francis C.
Asana is pound for pound the most elaborate mechanism for generating task lists; therefore, unsurprisingly it is useful when it is used.
I am the kind of person who intends fully to squeeze the lemon until a passerby might feel sympathetic . So I naturally took to this app immediately. The details with which the interface was built are unmatched -- comments are different than assignments are different than notes are different than etc etc etc. As long as there is some meta-talk regarding the respective definitions pertaining to the labels/options...you'll be squared up for a flourishing relationship. however, some of my colleagues and employees who get far less satisfaction out of deep exploration of organizational software I know had a far less delightful experience...
Nachteile: This app, for all its wonderful internal qualities, fails to integrate with some of the other most useful programs. I vote that the Asana team devote an immense amount of time [though I'm sure this has been approached as an issue a thousand times over] to the relationships with other up-n-comers in the app developer field. PLEASE N thanks!

I love it!
Kommentare: Asana is by far the best Project Management software out there. I've tried multiple other softwares like Trello, Freedcamp, and others and none have met my needs like Asana does.
Vorteile: Asana has by far the best, most well designed user interface. It's so easy to use and every new team member we add is up to speed on how to use it in no time with very little training. It allows you to view tasks in both a list view and a cards view like Trello now. It allows for multiple views by project, team member, calendar etc. They give LOTS of value before asking you to pay. It's free for up to 15 users I believe, which is so awesome for us being a small startup that can't afford to pay for a project management software quite yet.
Nachteile: It can be a little slow loading at times. But honestly it's so amazing otherwise that I'd still much prefer it over any other software. And it has a large file upload size on the free tier, but it would be nice if there was a better way to sort/view just attachements.

Kommentare: I have been using this for a few years now and i think this is the best task management platform for a company it is a little overpriced but worth it
Like the way you can set up projects and ad task for multiple people.
You can setup peridoc task.
Also, set up personal projects where nobody else can see.
The integration with Flock is limited.
It would be great if we could consolidate similar projects.
Don't like the weekly email that comes in to upgrade from the current plan.

Best Productivity Manager
Kommentare: I've experimented with a number of productivity tools in the past few years, but Asana is my favorite. It has an easy to learn interface, a very robust free version, the ability to share or keep private any given task or project. We use this to direct the development of training materials for two different software products, makes it very easy to see each product line on it's own, and internal message tags make it easy to come up to speed and UNCLOG EMAIL INBOXES. We spend less time reading random emails, digging out the context somewhere else, then doubling back to email to respond. The info and the context are in the same space. Love it.
Vorteile: Color tagging, embedded lists, and attaching a task to more than one project saves tons of time. Can tell at a glance what I am looking at, and see relevant info with a quick click. Also? I positively adore that magical unicorn that streaks across my screen when I complete a task. Not kidding.
Nachteile: Wish list for productivity apps is a mind map sort of screen, Asana doesn't have one, but neither do any of the others I tested, so it can hardly be considered a con

The best team organizing tool around
Kommentare: Our company uses this tool across our organization with the top users coming from Marketing, Product, Customer Success and Sales & Marketing Operations. It's a great tool for cross-organizational visibility as well as productivity. With it's fairly flexible interface and myriad features for customizing project-based or personal tasks Asana does what many other tools wish they could: align and organize. We use the Project-based system extensively for personal tasks (as opposed to the My Tasks view) because of the flexibility of Asana to help us with OKR, goal setting and discussions. We also use the API to integrate creative brief requests into our workflow. Asana has allowed us to better align our teams. Within the Marketing team we are constantly communicating via the per-task comment system and @ mentions. I'm currently experimenting with OKR-style projects to further extend our goals.
+ Flexibility of task creation/management
+ Ease of use day-to-day
+ Support from Asana
Nachteile: - You may have to bend your project organization to fit the hierarchical structure

One of the Best Apps in our Business.
Asana has overhauled the way our business works.
We have complete transparency across our entire team on every single task or project we need to manage. Each Team Member begins their day by opening Asana Whether it be our daily lunch orders or the management of our entire client base and their many jobs, this system is indispensable. Asana has given us the tools to allow a significant reduction in email and provides a complete work history. Every action, comment, mention or file relating to a task or project is documented and accessible via the powerful search feature. Asana makes getting stuff done easier. It has increased our capacity and it has helped our accounting firm become 100% cloud first.
Nachteile: I don't really have anything bad to say about Asana, I only wish I knew about it sooner as it has changed my life.

Great task and project manager.
Vorteile: There is a truly impressive feature set that they offer for free, which should suit just about any user. With the ability to have either simple straight up task lists or kanban style boards - it will also suit most working styles. Have to admit - my favourite part is easily the occasional animations you can get from completing tasks. It's very rewarding. The ability to have multiple projects going, and different teams for each project - with intuitive navigation between makes using the platform simple. There are also some great integrations with time trackers, to google calendar - and a whole lot more with services like Zapier. Being able to easily attach notes, images and files to tasks, offer powerful subtasks, tags, notes and tag each other in conversation helps keep everything in one place and the team focused on execution.
Nachteile: The UI can be overwhelmingly noisy, until you both get used to it, and get comfortable removing some things from your views.

Overall I really like this product
Vorteile: Overall I really like the functionality of Asana. I use it to manage all of the projects for three different businesses and it works well. I like that I can communicate with my staff and myself (ha ha) clearly and effectively, organize projects, attach files, and keep everything in one place. It saves me from having a ridiculous inbox all of the time.
Nachteile: Full disclosure, I only use the free version so I imagine that the paid version has many more features. I also was trained on the list version and I imagine that the calendar version is probably more to my liking. The lists are sometimes hard to organize and prioritize visually when I have 20 tasks due on one day. I have also noticed that on occasion my staff members will miss important deadlines because they had something really important buried at the bottom of a day's list.

Powerful tool for the development of team business projects
Kommentare: Because it is a software that provides all the features for teamwork, implementing it has allowed us to improve our project management since the fact that we can assign both tasks and subtasks facilitates the development of each project and allows delivery for the expected time .
Vorteile: Asana is a tool that I like because it allows the business project management process to be carried out much more simply, since we can assign tasks to different workers and can place them on the deadline for delivery and in case of changes edit it, account With a control panel that is very intuitive and versatile so that any user can adapt to it easily, it has features that make workflow even easier since it allows you to attach files, receive notifications about all the generating changes in the projects so that we are all updated on them and the best thing is that it is a multiplatform software so it is not necessary to be in the office for its use and the advancement of our tasks.
Nachteile: This software is very complete and useful but the one that has so many functions more than simplifying the work can give more because many users are often confused as to what utility some functions have.

A perfect tool for group collaboration
Vorteile: I like their interface. It is very attractive and easy to use. The Asana software is very simple to work with and everything is so intuitive, which is a great pros of this program. It allows you to effectively manage tasks, project templates, color coded calendars and visual project plans. Moreover, Asana is a perfect tool to use for collaboration within your team.
Nachteile: It is obvious that there are no perfect programs and Asana is not an exception. Speaking about Asana, there are some drawbacks in this service which I'd like to be mentioned. To start with, sometimes notifications work with a delay. It seems that in such case, you have to open Asana constantly so you could stay up to date with your purposes. In addition, Asana's mobile application has some drawbacks which must be fixed. In general, it should be improved.

The easiest way to manage my team.
The inbox keeps us up to date with every part of the project. I can easily see where everyone is at with their tasks and follow up when necessary.
Keeping everything in one place has been key for our team. We use the file attachment feature to keep files associated with projects and tasks directly on that task. This makes it easy to find and eliminates the use of inter office email.
Being able to have multiple teams has been great. I can use Asana for all parts of my life and keep each team organized separately. I'm no longer flipping trough task lists trying to figure out what task was for what project. It's all right in Asana!
With Asana boards we've been able to find new ways to use Asana to move tasks through a workflow in a way that is visually pleasing to everyone.
Nachteile: I can't use Asana to keep track of events (meetings) that go along with each project. Would love to see different calendar views.

Fantastic free tool to manage workload. Slow loading times makes it frustrating, however.
Asana is a fantastic tool that understands the power and attractiveness of simplicity in a project management tool. It is easy to get started and pretty to look at. It provides a lot of flexibility when categorizing tasks, but the uniformity in the input of tasks doesn't allow for a quick and easy visualization of the differing hierarchy of tasks.
Speed issues are the main cause for disappointment.
Quick to onboard new teammates.
Simple to use.
Nachteile: It takes anywhere from 5-15 seconds to load the tasks, and it doesn't even fetch the whole list. Scrolling below the fold makes it fetch the next batch of tasks. This presents a frustrating experience that they seriously consider addressing.
