- Organize work the right way and view projects as lists or kanban boards. Use the Timeline view to see how each piece of the project fits together to hit deadlines.
- Comment directly on a task and clarify exactly what needs to be done. Mention teammates or other work in Asana so everyone and everything stays connected.
- Limit access to any project, create hidden teams for sensitive work, or make public teams and projects for the entire organization.

- Integrate with other tools the team already uses, like G Suite, Slack, Microsoft, Chrome, Github, and more.
- Track work and stay up to date on the go with Asana’s mobile app. Just like the web app, teams can use it to create tasks and projects, have conversations, and get updates on progress.

platform that improves my work performance

All my work performance improved and I have had a much better organized organization of each project for my peace of mind that I complete all my tasks within the correct delivery time.

Pros

Project delivery times have been much easier to meet since we worked with Asana, it has been a good tool to work as a team that is much more organized with each task assigned to each one, having responsibility for each task and improving performance. I can be in multiple projects and work on them at the same time and thus correct the changes that must be made with the constant monitoring that can be done.

Cons

Maybe I want them to improve customer service, it's not bad, it's just that they take a while to give answers.

It has been extremely positive; it streamlines communication and task management.

It has been extremely positive; it streamlines communication and task management.

Pros

I love many things. First of all, the interface is friendly and intuitive. I like the inbox. I regularly work with another person. We skip email and communicate directly on the tasks at hand. With the inbox, I can follow the conversation related to the task. When general issues come up, we use a special task for that. I love the tags; they allow me to prioritize things beyond projects. I like having the ability to categorize a task into different projects. I like being able to comment on tasks. That helps me record lessons learned.

Cons

I think the inbox interface can be cleaner.

Asana - No Change MGMT

Reviewed on 08/04/2024

Pros

The PMs like Asana, for their management, single source to get messages across quickly

Cons

Not very much, as it is a bit cumbersome to use, and the threads are very long with comments

Asana has been a consistent, tried and true product for me that I can depend on when I need it. Their customer support is friendly and responsive, and you can tell they are genuinely trying to help you.

Pros

Asana does it's job well, but it takes a while to get used to the platform. It is a bit messy looking and can be difficult to figure out how to set up for first time users.

Cons

Mainly it's not 'super' user friendliness when first setting up, but once you figure it out it becomes a bit easier.

I am daily user but not a power user. I have learned to maximize a few features at the free level. I have never upgraded to the paid version, but I have used the platform for several years.

Pros

The free version allows a team to easily communicate and crush deadlines. I love the Templates features for projects that share the same DNA. This allows for quick project set-up, but can still be customized. I also like that I can switch between Kanban, list, and calendar view. It helpful to view projects from different angles at different points of its life cycle.

Cons

Archiving projects isn't intuitive. Which can make looking up legacy clients, historical data and simple clean up difficult as you use this program over multiple years. Which you will likely do.
