Content manager - Punlo

✓ Asana
We, the members of Pulno team, use Asana. For those of you who don’t know it, Asana is a project management app where you can also store files. What we like the most about it is that we can create separate tasks and assign them to multiple team members. There will be one person “responsible” but others may view, comment and collaborate as well. You can set the end task date as you please (with a built-in calendar) making it a one-time task or a repetitive. Again, the frequency of repetition is up to the user.

You don’t have to keep a close eye on the projects (you can though as everything is super easy to review in the dashboard) because notification of any updates made in the tasks will come to your mailbox.

On top of that, Asana is an application that is easy to use and nice to look at.

✓ Asana
Asana is a simple-to-use platform that is based on visual organization. It’s easy to assign tasks, monitor team-wide progress and keep communication strong between team members. Additional point: when you complete a task, a unicorn flies across your screen — pretty cool.

Downside: It takes a lot of team-power to organize and structure out reusable templates in Asana. Generally, we found that structuring out projects took longer than the actual project.

Trello’s easy-to-use board keeps things simple, straightforward and fun, while Asana’s program offers a wider set of features. From lists, boards, timelines, and calendars, you can pick and choose how your project is organized and flip from option to option as you go. This is particularly helpful for entrepreneurs working in the service industry, as you might need a more comprehensive program to collect all those non-tangible elements.

✓ Asana
Asana is a fantastic project management and collaboration tool that enables teams to streamline work and track tasks from their creation to completion. Asana offers plenty of project templates that can help organizations jump-start their project tracking and planning process more efficiently. Templates cover a wide range of business applications, from marketing to product design. Further, this tool allows organizations to break bigger, more challenging tasks into small, manageable chunks and assign them to different team members. Asana is useful for both remote and in-house employees who struggle with the workload and want to obtain a more organized workday. However, what I think Asana lacks is a built-in chat option that would enable team members to discuss project-related things within the app.

Asana is extremely affordable, and it’s even cheap for teams of up to 15 users. Further, it lacks time-tracking features and advanced project timelines, which can be essential when it comes to billing and sticking to schedules. Even though Asana lacks some features we could find useful (live chat, for instance), it’s well integrated with other apps that can quickly solve this problem. For example, Asana works perfectly with Slack, which enables teams to discuss project-related things, or with Harvest, which can successfully track time spent on specific projects.

To ensure that all of my writers are doing their jobs, I use Asana to monitor their outputs. Asana allows me to assign each article to a writer and track if they’ve finished it or not. It also allows people to comment on assigned tasks making it easier to give constructive feedback or answer questions.

Gems Collins

CEO - Gems Collins LLC

✓ Asana
A brilliant online platform that allows you to create multiple projects, set deadlines and milestones and collaborate with multiple stakeholders and contributors. I like that you are able to assign tasks to people, see your own task list and mark them as complete when necessary. I also appreciate the daily email that tells me what is due that day and in the coming days to keep me organised and on track.

Pro and Cons:
– Very easy to learn and understand how it works with nice and intuitive UI.
– It may not work for very large and complex projects and for too small projects.

✓ Asana
Asana is a work management tool designed to help teams know who’s doing what by when. Using the web or mobile apps, teams can communicate, collaborate, and organize all of their work. It combines elements of project management, file storage, and collaboration and helps to manage projects across a team without email. I like asana as is its free for a small team, we can assign task to a team and they will get the notification. Once a task is completed I can get reports and all.

Shannon DeJong

Founder/CEO - House Of Who

✓ Asana
We have found that while Asana has its limitations, it gets the job done and integrates well with Slack. #1 important need for a project management tool is that people will actually use it – otherwise it’s pointless. This means it must be intuitive (not overly complicated, each to assign and check things off, etc).

If I could marry Asana, I would.

I have tried multiple of their competitors over the years and they blow them away. At this point, it’s become an asset for our business as we add to the templates every day to get as efficient as possible. It’s even sped up training new employees. Tie Asana in with Slack for quicker internal communications and notifications and it has our company running like a well-oiled machine.
