"Since I'm using it for a variety of purposes, not just project management, I can customize boards and workspaces based on the needs of that particular workflow."
"In short - it keeps a remote asynchronous team in sync."
"I really really like the sort by name or dates functions as they toggle and make being able to offer super-quick organization a breeze, especially when client-facing."
"The automation is huge."
"The solution can be customized for individual projects and quite easy to use."
"The solution provides a one-stop place for notes, progress, and sharing the status of projects."
"I have found the automation very useful for reminders."
"Marking the status of deliverables is the most useful aspect."
"Stable Kanban style tool for collaboration and task management. It runs smoothly and has a straightforward setup."
"The solution scales well."
"I really enjoy the portfolios in Asana. One of the ways Asana stands out to me is with portfolios. You can have all your different projects, and you can have those assigned to different teams. If you want to customize a grouping of projects, you can use portfolios. For instance, one of the things that we do is we can assign a portfolio to a specific strategic objective we have, and we can put all those projects that are related to that strategic objective in that portfolio. We then know exactly what people are working on to help us achieve our goals. So, I really like portfolios."
"It has helped our departments maintain visibility."
"It is stable and easy to set up."
"Asana provides a lot of options and a lot of customization to give the best efficient way for your business to operate. For example, I can customize my tasks, tables, and pipelines the way I want them to fit my business model. It's easy and highly customizable."
"The most valuable feature of Asana is the tracking of comments and documents in one place."
"Asana allows you to create your own project with sub sections with subtasks that can be assigned. The feature I really love is that you can tag people to notify them that there has been progress on a project as well as add attachments."
"The solution is great for project management."
"Trello is very easy to install and set up. It is also easy to use. Its interface is excellent."
"The installation was extremely straightforward."
"I like how user-friendly, visual, and intuitive it is. It doesn't take a lot of time to figure out how to make it work for you."
"It has a very modern-looking interface."
"The solution is very easy to use."
"I can see everything on one page, like sticky notes. It's very, very easy to use and very straightforward."
"The user interface is great. I find it very easy to create cards."
"It would be good if we could have the option to choose custom colors for the status fields and groups so we can make some boards more branded."
"We'd like more automation."
"There have recently been a lot of lagging and loading delays with saving."
"While I appreciate the templates, some of them are extremely complex and not as tailored to non-profit work so they required quite a bit of customizing (but worth the trouble)."
"Some of the automation is having some technical difficulties."
"I struggle to use the mobile version of Monday.com."
"It is difficult to create templates for repeat use cases."
"The tabs (color coding) featured is great for distinguishing different areas of our workflow."
"For large teams, scalability should be improved."
"We have not used Asana on our private server. We have been using the cloud solution. We need an on premise solution for government agencies."
"We tried, but we haven't been successful with it. If people don't have the training, it is not easy to use. You need to make sure that the people are trained to use the system. They can provide more resources in the form of webcasts and videos that people can use to train themselves and understand how to use it."
"The stability of Asana is good. However, there are some issues with maintenance, when the solution is down. For example, there might be maintained for a few hours where we cannot use the solution."
"I rate the support from Asana a four out of five."
"On the development side for technical project management, Asana is missing features. We only use it for discussing tasks and strategies, and we use it for customer to-do lists. It doesn't have the source code integration that Jira and Jira Service Desk both have."
"There just needs to be a bit more direction on how to use it at the outset."
"In Asana, there's no way to add a custom date field."
"It would be great if there was a tour for new users to explain how this solution works. Using this solution for the first time can feel complicated."
"It's really simple, which is a good thing, but it only does one thing for us."
"It is not a scalable product."
"Having more integration with third party tools is an area for improvement in Trello. It would also be nice if it has a voice messaging functionality similar to what you have in WhatsApp, for quicker communication with colleagues."
"It could have a bit more customization, especially for organizations that may want to integrate it into their own systems."
"Trello could add an analytic tool that allows me to see the performance of each team member, answering questions like whether they meet the deadline or miss the deadline."
"We don't really have any automated features. If they had more automated options, that would be helpful."
"There aren't as many tracking tools."

Ben D., Front End Developer at a marketing services firm, writes of the product, “Their flagship feature, what used to be called the pulse, is great. Pulse offers great management. Being able to see everything at a glance and check task status, is wonderful. They use subtasks and the simple aspects of task management have been really helpful.”
Another PeerSpot reviewer, the Head of Projects at Smart Media SA, notes, “The boards offer an amazing and clear view of my tasks, campaigns, and progress. Automations especially with Slack and Outlook help with keeping my team up-to-date always. Graphs and charts are valuable for reporting purposes and to track progress made. Workforms/surveys are valuable and a very cool added feature.”
