  • Great App BUT Missing these 2 features are killing team work and productivity Jun 22, 2019

    By omnizen
    Asana has really been a game change for me personally. BUT, not so much for my team. People are typically stressed out and overwhelmed with Asana because of these 3 things. 1- IOS and even on Web app, it’s EXTREMELY difficult getting to the conversations area. As a result, people on my team resort to random and chaotic text/email threads. Solution? Have a dedicated conversations/chat area on iOS, easy to find and not hidden away. It’s questionable how they placed conversations deep within project area. For those new to Asana and even tech for that matter, it’s really a pain to get people to use a tool when important features are tucked away. 2- Feedback from my team has suggested that it is equally confusing and difficult trying to find files, folders and reference material. Sure Asana has a dedicated space hidden to find files and app for a particular project however, there really needs to be a central are to not just see files/folders but have ways of organizing as see fit. In our business, our team is constantly using the same documents for projects or our business. Solution? Create a a documents/folders dashboards are for which to store and save files with flexibility. Basecamp did this the best having hierarchy and easy accessibility for documents and folders.

    We have been using asana extensively to manage both tasks and communication throughout all branches of the company. It’s a lifeline and an extremely valuable tool! Since the newest update a week ago, the work efficiency has been effected significantly. Unread messages are condensed into a drop down accordion (good), but even when you click on the drop down arrow parts of the threads gets cut off and we have to click into every conversation to read the full thread (bad). This is very inconvenient due to the start-from-first formatting in asana, rather than starting from the last comment and scrolling back to historical comments. This means A LOT of scrolling, and creating new/duplicate tasks, just to reduce the amount of scrolling before arriving at the latest comments. The “like” 👍🏻 feature is also less useful now as messages get condensed. We are using asana for very time sensitive updates and tasks. Some employees may receive thousands of updates per day through all the various projects. With the new update, this makes it very difficult to handle the higher volume collaboration that asana is such a great resource for!

  • New update makes App less mobile friendly Jun 22, 2020

    By Holyrandom
    My small construction company has been using Asana for almost 6 years now and this most recent App update which made a pretty big overhaul on the Inbox which has made it almost useless while trying to work in the field. I do like the swipe to archive feature and that you can hide a task string in the inbox, but now that you can’t “like” a comment right in the inbox OR read a comment that is longer than about 10 words only slows down the entire experience. The whole point of the inbox is that you can quickly read through all of the things happening in the various tasks that you own or collaborate on and having to open the task every time to see what someone said or like the comment to let them know you read it or whatever really slows down the workflow, especially if my cell service is slow, and now I find myself waiting until I can sit down at a computer to go through my inbox which is slowing down my response time and causing my inbox to stack up to overwhelming proportions almost daily. Keep the update format, but bring back full comments and the “like” button in the inbox.

    Lot of issues of login. Very stupid idea login by email. You cannot login into your asana account without using the "magic email". There is no option to enter in your password and email combination. Since my email accounts are both Gmail I'd be obliged to logout and login back in each time or create a new account and lose my work. Is it really asking too ...

  • The desktop site is amazing, but the app limits productivity Oct 12, 2018

    By Simplify
    I love project management software tools and the full computer web version of Asana is a powerful, efficient tool. The mobile app, however, is exceedingly limited. If you are only managing a simple to-do list, no problem. If you have multiple projects with multiple team members, the mobile app is a roadblock to productivity. You cannot view tasks assigned only to you sorted by project. This is huge...you loose the context of the task inside and project. You can view all tasks by project, but you cannot filter to see only your tasks, but have to load and scroll past all those tasks assigned to your team members. If you have a few minutes waiting in line out in the world and want to check off a task...forget about it. You’ll wait for a while as the app loads and then have to spend more time trying to find be relative content. OmniFocus has this solved exceedingly well, but is only for individuals, not teams. I sincerely hope Asana will work on its mobile features. My team simply cannot use it on mobile or tablet devices.

  1. Stay on top of your work while on the move - anytime, anywhere! Use Asana to quickly capture tasks, to-dos, reminders, and ideas on your mobile device
  2. Instantly communicate with teammates in Asana! Share team announcements, ask questions for a project, or comment on a task
  3. Complete tasks on the go and notify your entire team that the work is finished

  • Absolutely Love This App Mar 11, 2018

    By Jameson287
    I use both the desktop and mobile version of this task manager. I love the ability and ease of use for me to be able to add, assign, follow, update etc my workflow. I’m a GM if a hotel and we have turned this workspace into a place to not only track guest requests, cleaning schedules, waiting lists and more to preventive maintenance and deep cleaning schedules. This keeps us on schedule and on target for completing required work. The ability to comment and attach files keeps all relevant information in a central location and is easily searchable both for completed and incomplete tasks. I recommend this to everyone I can and even show it to new GMs that start the company as a tool to plan their hotels as well.

  • Asana is amazing! Dec 18, 2018

    By Cyzvcfyj
    As an Ops Analyst and Graphic Designer I honestly don’t know what I would do without Asana. I’d miss every deadline If it weren’t for Asana. We are in the process of bringing the whole team on board! The app is definitely limiting so PLEASE check out the web version! Of all the limitations on the app, the one major one I’d love to see rectified ASAP is toggling between Asana accounts! I have two different jobs that both use Asana and can only access one Asana dashboard from the app - no option to add an additional account/e-mail address. Big bummer as I have different deadlines every day! P.S. I still think the app is incredibly functional and worth a shot for everyone. This app made me 10x productive, seriously.

  • Working well so far but wish I could upgrade for 1 person Oct 24, 2019

    By Snurferb
    After watching and reading how to work with Asana I started to figure it out more and apply it to how I need to work. It works very well. I’m in the free tier at the moment which is a great thing Asana offers, others only do 30 days. BUT there are lots of missing features, most important to me in timeline view and templates. Most software nowadays you can unlock features with a paid upgrade and I feel this would be super easily for Asana to implement a paid upgrade for one account. Currently you need to pay for 5 users minimum to get the features to make the platform awesome. Seems like a quick fix to make just a one person upgrade or maybe even just a pay to unlock feature sort of thing. Because of that I’m not sure if I’m going to stick around or not. It’s 1/4 the price to get these features from other companies and as a one man business that is a substantial amount.

  • Can’t easily access labels Jan 22, 2018

    By murraycs
    I like the app for the most part. My only complaint is the confusing interface to filter tasks by label and long process of even adding labels to tasks. Initially I thought that to filter by label I first have to remember a task that has the label I want, then click into that task and tap the label I want to filter. I’d much prefer a “filter by label” added to the drop down that includes “uncompleted” and such. EDIT: It took some poking around, but for some unknown reason the ability to filter by task is under the Favorites tab in Projects. Sorry, but that makes very little sense. I’m glad I figured it out, but how does putting the ability to filter by label under Projects make any sense? They’re applied to tasks, so there should be that ability in the TASK list! This is a failure in basic interface design. Also, for adding a label I have to created the task in the task list, then click into the task, tap the edit button, tap add label, and then type in the label. Far too many clicks. This greatly reduces the usefulness of the app to me since I use labels extensively. Couldn’t you do a pop-up like iCal on the desktop does that allows you to change some of the basics of an entry? Good things about the app are that I can have my to-do list easily accessible on the go and assign team members to tasks relatively easily.

  • Not very accommodating Jun 3, 2020

    By Stray Round
    In general, while this product is solid and useful, it could be much better if not for the ivory tower attitude of its developers. It’s fine if you’re willing to do things their way. But they don’t give you enough control over the user experience which Is littered with little annoyances that drag down the overall experience. For example, there appears no way to turn off the annoying splash screen in the iOS app that displays for a ridiculously long time. There’s pretty much zero opportunity to tailor it to your preferences or needs. I won’t be persuaded to pay for this app until there is. If you are evaluating this product, there is no obvious or easy way to ask questions or give feedback. (Sorry, help forums are not convenient. Convenient for the developer maybe, not the customer).

  • A distant third from desktop and iPhone version Jun 25, 2019

    By russellholt
    Asana desktop is great, and Asana on iPhone is also pretty good, but please fix the iPad app. It feels like little or no thought went into porting the iPhone version. If you only fix one thing here, fix the column proportions. Either make them resizable or dynamic or make them 50/50 instead of 75/25 or whatever it is. Seriously: when commenting on tasks, you give us a tiny, tiny box on the bottom right with a massive amount of empty space on the screen in the middle. Take a cue from Things 3, which does the task list UX on mobile far better. The iPad would be the perfect Asana device, but it’s actually less useful and more frustrating than this same app on the much smaller iPhone. 2/5

  • Missing Critical Functionality: Prioritizing Sep 8, 2018

    By Chris6791123
    Thought I would use this app for my husband and I to keep track of all our household projects. I am a Project Manager by day and have worked with a few different professional tools. Asana is missing a very basic piece of functionality: prioritizing! The priority set by the drag and drop feature should be carried to all member’s lists of the project (everyone on the project should be working off the same priority). I looked up some work-arounds to accomplishing this, like custom fields, but they are not available in the free version. This should be an out-of-the-box, free feature. Going to delete this app and keep looking for one to meet our needs.

  • Lacking a key feature! Jan 3, 2019

    By CFHenderson
    ASANA is good but certainly NOT great. The app is able to manage all of the users tasks, and I really like the ability to use boards vs lists for projects. However, the reminders/notifications are so lacking that the user is forced to remember to revisit the app. There is NO WAY FOR TIME-BASED PUSH NOTIFICATIONS. What kind of productivity app is incapable of creating a little nudge at the time of the task being due? Developers allow users to set a time due and then remind them at 9 am of everything that is due that day—broken. As soon as this issue is solved, ASANA would be a one stop shop for productivity. Unfortunately, until then it’s not functional for full integration.

  • Meh. Kind of counterproductive Jan 31, 2018

    By Booyashaka 2011
    I like efficiency and any app that offers a way to streamline communications has my vote. Sadly, Asana fails at a critical function: notifications. Either you must leave email notifications turned on or you'll never be alerted when your assigned a task or someone leaves a comment. Unless you sit at your computer staring at the Austin a screen waiting for a tiny orange dot to appear in the menu bar. Until Asana adds push notifications to text or desktop, there's little efficiency gain over just emailing files and comments to people. I want to like Asana for its simplicity and aesthetic, but for team communications it needs more work to provide real gains.

  • Not nearly as good as desktop Dec 16, 2017

    By Cecemeimoer
    I love Asana and use it to keep track of everything - social, freelance, workouts, personal life BUT the app is frustrating. The main issue (please fix this!!!) is that it is a real pain to assign a date to things on the app! When you select a date on the calendar and then press + Task it does not automatically go to that date. I want a quick, visual way to go from date to adding a task. Also for the love of god PLEASE make deleting easier both in the app and desktop. You currently have to click each task then click “...” then click delete.
