"The solution can be customized for individual projects and quite easy to use."
"The automations are fantastic for rewarding progress."
"We are a lot more organized, and have transparency throughout key areas of our business thanks to this solution."
"Being able to assign our individual tasks helps us a ton. I’ve worked with other companies that did not use Monday, and sometimes things would fall through the cracks as there were misunderstandings about who’s the responsibility it was to do something."
"The way it allows our team to communicate with each other and keep each other up to date on many ongoing assignments at once through comments and the subitems feature is very helpful."
"The UI is so smart."
"The solution is easily scalable."
"We use less paper thanks to this product."
"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."
"What I like most about Asana is its simplicity. For example: we're not the only ones using it, and we onboard our customers to it, and normally, they have no questions."
"It is very good for managing the timeline. I'm a quality manager, and I have different testing projects running with different work breakdown structures. Asana makes it very easy to implement and monitor the plans. It is easy to move the tasks and complete them, break them down, and assign them to people."
"It is pretty comprehensive when it comes to the different views that it gives you. It gives you a Gantt chart view, calendar view, board view, and list view. It is kind of helpful to have different types of views and see how it views your different tasks. I appreciate being able to do that. The biggest thing is that it is extremely user friendly. Asana is pretty intuitive. Someone who is not tech-savvy can kind of catch on quickly. It is better than other tools like Smartsheet. Some of the other tools like Microsoft Project and Excel are great tools, but you have to invest a lot of time to learn them, which is not the case with Asana."
"It is stable and easy to set up."
"Stable Kanban style tool for collaboration and task management. It runs smoothly and has a straightforward setup."
"The ability to share projects and tasks among team members appears to be the most valuable feature."
"We utilize time tracking and reports most often."
"It's a very easy-to-use and flexible tool. We can easily write and create queues for different themes. It's very user-friendly."
"A little more customization on the UI would be good."
"Even when the person leaves the team, he/she can still access all the files he/she created."
"I struggle to use the mobile version of Monday.com."
"It does everything we need it to, so no improvements are necessary."
"Being able to create 'sub-teams' so people in these teams can be assigned to tasks in one go and receive updates on the progress of tasks would be useful."
"It would be great to be able to pull an activity report."
"We have difficulties playing with automation."
"We need more cross-API integration with creative apps in the Adobe Suite and other communication platforms."
"There just needs to be a bit more direction on how to use it at the outset."
"It's hard to integrate Asana into other parts of the company workflow, so integration is an area for improvement."
"We don't get enough notifications."
"Their workflows and automation could use a big improvement. I don't even know if they have anything in that regard right now. I would really love to see a way where you can send custom alerts based on a task's completion or status change or an approval coming through. I would love to see a way to get some low-code functionality into Asana because right now, that is a big miss."
"For large teams, scalability should be improved."
"In Asana, there's no way to add a custom date field."
"We'd like the capability to be able to set up weekly reminders."
"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."
"On one side, it's very easy to create a task with text, but on the other side, it's not very well-formatted. Therefore, it's difficult to track specific data written in a task. We are making templates, but it's not enough to use a template to know the exact status of different tasks. One thing that we are looking for in Wrike is a better workflow. Because we can only move the status of tasks, we can't really manage workflow and send a task to a specific person. This is what is really missing in Wrike as compared to other tools. We are looking to replace Wrike because we need support for workflow. Another issue with Wrike is that they bring a lot of versions of the tool, which it's not so easy. They bring new versions very frequently, and these versions look similar. For example, we are using robots to read the tasks in the tools, which is problematic with Wrike because it is changing very frequently."
"We feel that the actual project reports and roll-ups could be a lot different. We are seeking something more for the dashboard. We would like a high-level dashboard that can be broken down into individual product roll-ups and tasks that are assigned. If you assign someone to a task, it assigns them all of the tasks under that. We want to be able to break those down so that a person doesn't have an 800 task list, for example. We want more separation with that and a higher-level dashboard experience."

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.”
