Asana Valuable Features

In addition to the Portfolios feature benefits, I find the ability to create custom project templates very useful. Creating projects can be time consuming, especially if they are complex (e.g., many tasks, multiple dependencies, multiple sections, etc.). Even copying a project to reuse it (which is common in a lot of other solutions) can create more work by duplicating unnecessary information. Instead, Asana allows a user to use any project as a template that can be selected when creating a new project. So, I have created base projects for various types of projects with only the tasks that would be completed and then use those as templates. View full review »

It is pretty comprehensive when it comes to the different views that it gives you. It gives you a Gantt chart view, calendar view, board view, and list view. It is kind of helpful to have different types of views and see how it views your different tasks. I appreciate being able to do that. The biggest thing is that it is extremely user friendly. Asana is pretty intuitive. Someone who is not tech-savvy can kind of catch on quickly. It is better than other tools like Smartsheet. Some of the other tools like Microsoft Project and Excel are great tools, but you have to invest a lot of time to learn them, which is not the case with Asana. View full review »

It's a very useful tool because it's very easy to follow a path and its progress. It's easy to open and close cases, and get answers. You can put a time limitation when the task must be done or when another person has to respond. It's perfect because it's online and all the communications I see on most platforms, so it's very nice. It's an easy way to communicate. The solution offers fun easter eggs as you work through it. The product remembers previously asked questions and can direct you back to them. The solution overall is very easy to use. It's better than email because email due to the fact that sometimes you can lose some email. This way everything is much more accessible and searchable.

This product is versatile for an organization. It has elements that can be useful for my team and me, as it has capabilities that will suit our needs. By using this software, I have adaptability in my work, and it can improve the production of our company. The software also promotes a healthy back office management system that will benefit everyone in the company. Marking projects/events complete as they happen is valuable. The fun animation makes every completed task feel like a win, and it makes using the tool more fun. Very helpful when doing something that is normally tedious. With regard to project management, the ability for us to track our projects all in one place is very helpful. Transparency makes it easy for everyone to be on the same page. View full review »
