We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"By using this software, I have adaptability in my work, and it can improve the production of our company."
"Asana has helped me (as an individual contributor) organize my daily work and given me a way to plan for longer term objectives."
"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."
"It's an easy way to communicate."
"The solution is more of a streamlined Slack."
"The value is that monday.com provides us with an overall picture of how much work a teammate has."
"The global search is the solution's most valuable aspect."
"The initial setup is very easy."
"The solution can be customized for individual projects and quite easy to use."
"monday.com is easy to set up."
"It allows you to be granular, and send each step."
"The inbox feature can be a little overwhelming if you are working with Asana just from its project boards and only checking it periodically."
"A user should be able to identify an assignee for specific tasks or task types while applying the template, or at a minimum, allow for a default assignee. As it is, the template gets created with the just task dates driven by the project start and end dates inputted by the user. In my current situation, I'm assigning myself to many tasks, so I have to do that manually every time. Even if I eventually start adding other people to assign tasks, there won't be more than a handful to do. However, those few people will have multiple tasks. It would be nice to be able to select those individuals during the setup rather than having to do so manually once the project has been created."
"There could be some improvements in terms of how projects or day-to-day work is organized. One of the challenges when it comes to rolling out to an enterprise is the way the projects are organized. It has a kind of setup where you have different projects and tasks, but it is not as organized as Smartsheet when it comes to organizing projects or different teams. It can get really cluttered really fast. JIRA has another suite to submit the support tickets. It would be good if Asana could branch out to incorporate some kind of workflow. It is great for collaboration and recording work, but there isn't any workflow. It would be useful if they can map out a workflow of who approves what. This is kind of a big ask, and it is not geared towards that."
"There just needs to be a bit more direction on how to use it at the outset."
"The solution has dashboards, however, you have a limited amount. You may only get ten when you need closer to 30. We often need to create many boards. For example, we might need one board per customer. If we have more than ten customers, we run out of boards available. I'm not sure if you can pay more in order to get more or if it's just a design limitation. It's unclear. In any case, they should be more generous."
"Sometimes allocating between team members via the communication tool can be difficult."
"The user admin module could be more accessible."
"Some of the automation is having some technical difficulties."
"In my initial exposure to the interface, I did not find it to be very user-friendly."
"They could offer more packages. There seems to be a gap in price between package offers. One has as much as a $30 difference."
"What would be nice is if I had two days between deadlines and adjusted the day if it would automatically adjust the deadlines, even if I had to change one or two that might no longer work, it would save a lot of steps."
"The price of this solution makes it quite accessible, and the plans fit my budget."
"Asana has two different types of structures: company vs workspace. Company is really best if all the users you plan to assign work to are all internal (have the same corporate domain in their user ID email address). Once one person signs up (even for a free account) with a corporate email address, Asana will automatically relate that person to that company, if it already exists. If you plan to use it for external collaboration as well as internal, then creating a workspace is a better approach."
"It has a free version."
"I wasn't involved with the licensing, but I believe it's negotiable."
"The solution is quite inexpensive. For example, we pay $8,500 for 75 users. It's somewhere around $100 a user, approximately."
"The project manager would be responsible for any licensing fees. As an end-user, we just follow suit."
"Fees are paid monthly per user."
"The price is reasonable for the number of users we have."
Asana is web-based software-as-a-service that helps teams coordinate and manage their work. It helps companies move faster by making sure everyone knows the team’s plan and process and who is doing what by when.
Each user can create projects using a list, board, calendar, or timeline view. Within each project, users can add tasks, subtasks, sections, comments, attachments, start and due dates, and custom fields. Project and task followers get notifications on changes or comments on the project and/or task in their Inbox. Individual users can see all of the tasks they're responsible for across all of their projects in a view called My Tasks.
Asana is available in English, French, Spanish, German, and Portuguese.
