What does Asana do well? Pretty easy to use, a couple hang ups at first, but it’s fairly intuitive. The look of the program is great, especially for the price. Their free option goes a long way! It’s great for tracking my projects.
What does Asana not do well? Adding a new task is a little confusing. If you just add a new task, you need to slide it into the right project within the larger project. It also doesn’t tell you, in your to do list, what each item is FROM. So, it may say “send email for week 3” but you have to click into the task to find out what the project is. You also need to assign yourself a task, which is odd when it’s just one user.
What do you wish you had known about Asana before using? That the free option goes a long way. I was hesitant to start using the program because I was worried about the cost. I would like a little more intro into how to use it, or maybe info about how it integrates with other programs.
Have you used a competitor to Asana? If so, how does it compare? I’ve tried Trello and I don’t like it as much. The program is a little confusing and it feels like it takes itself less seriously than does Asana. I appreciate that Asana is as good as it is for the price.
