Asana Reviews

about Asana · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

Asana is ok for small simple projects.

But for big projects forget it.

I had a project with about 90 items and then about 10-20 subitems in each one. If someone checks the main item done, you assume all the subitems are done, but they are not. You have to go through each item one by one and look at all the sub items to see if they are checked off or not. Because the main item can be checked off but the subitems not checked off. Making it totally worthless unless you want to spend hours going through each item. I reported this to the Asana team 2yrs ago and they refused to fix it, saying it wasn't an issue. Asana is just not up for the job for big tasks. I use Trello instead.

Great for remote teams

about Asana · · Helpful Not helpful

Communication online is a must for our company and industry. We have a in-house team yet after a restructuring of our company a lot of the people I worked with directly became remote. Before discovering Asana, we used other tools but they always lacked something - be in integrations, interface or simple buttons. Under Asana, our collaboration has become much more easy to manage, and visualize. Creating lists and sharing projects with others is super easy, not to mention the amount of third party apps and software it can integrate with is amazing. We use Gmail so it is very easy to simply attach documents and create group convos to the side of our work.

Liked Asana but....

about Asana and Quire · · Helpful Not helpful

However, I found it to be a copy of Quire except that Quire does it better in my opinion. It just lost out to me as I don't think it handles sub tasks as well as Quire. However, it is highly recommended to give it a try.

I won't say copy -- Asana was available much earlier than Quire. Actually, their philosophy is very different. Asana is very functional. In my opinion, too functional -- Asana was adding too many functions that resulted a complicated and sometime scattered UI. It is a good all if you prefer a very powerful tool.

On the other hand, Quire is straightforward and focuses more tree-like task hierarchy well. It is good for dynamic projects that break down tasks constantly. It could be just me, but I hope Quire not to follow Asana's function-first approach.

Great project collab tool

about Asana · · Helpful Not helpful

My new favourite project management tool. Great interface and seamless integration with other apps like Google docs. What I love about Asana (besides the fact that it is free) is that it works for individuals as well as groups. I use it for individual projects and at work. Teams don't even have to be that large for it to work. Only downside is that I wish their was a better way to undo things ie. once you've deleted a task.

Instagantt

about Asana · · Helpful Not helpful

Asana integrates with Instagantt for gantt charts, plus there are a bunch of other integrations if you need additional functionality.

Thank you, we use Asana at work, I've now setup Instagantt. It works great. It was the only lacking feature.

No Gantt display

No Gantt display natively in Asana - too bad. :/

Perfect UI

about Asana · · Helpful Not helpful

I tried basecamp, trello, teamlab, toodleldo and a few others. Asana is by far the best, especially unlimited projects for teams under 30 members. All these other companies only offer 1-5 projects for free version.
