What are the best aspects of this product?
We had a positive experience when we were using Asana to implement a web application project for a financial services firm. The app is simple and offers projects and tasks mainly. It is very simple to enter a task and share it with your team members. Plus, you can reference other tasks located in the app.
I recommend Asana as it is a good tool for project management. You can also consider Pivotal Tracker, Trello, and Basecamp. If you wish to go with Asana, take some time out in the beginning to logically divide projects and tasks. This will help to shorten your lists in the long run and make them easy to manage.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
Asana forces the paradigm of task management on users. In some situations, the app’s mold may not quite suit the purpose. For example, if you wish a team to handle a high-level task, you have to find a specific guy to assign the task to. If there is no project lead, you have to go by guess work. I hope Asana introduces the ability to assign tasks to a team and allow the manager of the team or individuals in it to delegate the tasks as necessary.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
Our team data is stored in multiple places. Asana helps us become more aligned and organized. But, it is a bit difficult to get all the employees to use the app as some do not wish to use it as they do not think it helps to make the team more organized.
