I give 2 stars because:
1. Asana has tasks
2. Asana has a good design
3. Asana has projects
4. Asana has team spaces
I do not give 3 more starts because (I was swearing a lot at Asana recently):
1. It's "yesterday" functionality: you cannot play around and reorganize your subtasks (including detachment from a Parent Task); you cannot inherit Fields in subtasks, when duplicating a subtasks it doesn't actually inherit a project it lives in.
2. Description field has a very limited functionality, you can not highlight, make bigger, smaller, checkboxes etc
3. You cannot have subprojects, instead you just created a dozens of projects that are part of 1 actually..
In a nutshell, Asana is a basic To-Do platform, not a full project management platform. It lacks a lot of Freedom for me (I'm a heavy former Wrike user).

We use this at work and it's a great tool, It's nice how you can add people onto tasks and see other things going on just to be in the know.
Only negative is you can't create a list, a simple version of excel would be what I'm thinking of.

Our productivity software of choice. This software has evolved well over time and several of our automated systems run through Asana in addition to all of our teammates using this daily to make our business function.
Minus one star for bad UI choices in certain areas and specifically the disaster Asana Forms is

Been using Asana since it first began and cannot fault the product at any point. Great integrations and easy to get people up to speed.

I subscribed to the 30 day FREE trial of the Premium service on 27th March 2019. I was forced to enter my card details. I have had this before with other trials whereby the payment is taken after 30 days OR you cancel.
The money was taken immediately. I alerted Asana to this. Their response was to disable my Premium account and send me canned responses on how it was my fault and the money had been refunded.
When I advised the refund had not been received, I was told it was my responsibility to contact my bank! Say what?!!
When I asked for a contact number, I was told, sorry, we are a small company and don't have the resources. Say what?! But Asana charges $385 per year for entry-level premium service?!!
It's now 10th April. I was hopeful that the refund would be in my account. Still not!
I am now going to fill in the laborious form to claim back the unauthorised transaction from Asana

The most frustrating and time consuming customer service. They have no phone numbers to call if you have a problem, and to solve one small problem took emailing (a new person each email) back and forth over 2 days. They bill you incorrect amounts then try to avoid talking to you. BIG WASTE OF TIME

We use and love Asana. Too many people try to manage tasks and communications for projects within email and it just doesn't work. Asana for business processes, Jira for development. That's how we roll.

Too complicated to be honest, in my opinion there are better alternatives out there

Great tool, does almost everything I want and really well. Would be 5* if it was being able to switch between multiple accounts (as I use this for work and personally).
Review by ManFromUncle Kappos11 months ago
I don't find it suitable for big teams or big projects.
On the other hand, for small projects or personal use, it's perfect. It makes my personal work much more organized, I really like it. The problem is that they do not target personal users therefore if I want to pay for their premium features, I must pay for a minimum of 5 persons team. In that case, as a freelancer it's a bit expensive for what it does.That's why I'm sticking to other solutions because I can't use Asana without some of the features that are only available for premium users.

I've been using Asana as a free user for a number of years - for my own personal projects as well as for other organisations. I love that you can link accounts, but would love it even more if I could see a personal overview for all my tasks across all workspaces.
I would be more inclined to pay for the premium features if they were offered for single users, but as they're not, I don't feel much temptation to purchase them, and make do with using free Asana.
There is a bit of a learning curve and it can take some time to find the best way to set up certain projects and bring people on-board, but after a few cycles of a particular project, it is well worth it. I just love that I no longer have to repeatedly go through chains of emails, reading in-line responses, and trying to see if I've acted on or followed up on all the points in each email. Keeping each thing in a task where conversations can be focused is fantastic. The app has been improving also, the site has been getting faster, etc.

Amazing tool! One of the best, i tried a lot of differnet tools for tracking an planing for my company, but asana is the best.
It is so great how much things you can do with it, track how much of the task is done, see how much tasks each person have, have different borads and everything!

Because my previous negative review was erased, I have to repost my comment about this business.
Templana (Asana) whatever, they dare to spam people. Try to unsubscribe, they continue to spam. Not serious. If you want to test them, test with a secondary email address. Way too much spam and way too much so typical tech arrogance.
