Amazing App
Not to discount the review below me. But god knows many apps have short comings. Honestly this app is a great start to a program which to my knowledge is free? Least I have not encountered a time where I needed to pay. The desktop may have a bit more but I've seen many programs fall way shorter. In fact this is the first app I've taken a time to review. Again the guy below me might have run into some issues and I think the developers should take those into account, but honest to god to say this app is a watered down todo list is pretty misrepresented. Again if he paid and found it lacking by all means complain. But I can say I've found a few apps and even online versions of paid programs more lacking (cough) QBO

Almost a 5
Product wise I love Asana. I have to manage multiple different clients so I was in a hustle to find something that could work for me. I tried a couple other programs and just didn’t like them. I have a routine down with Asana and really helps me keep on track of things. Plus, when I get a team it’ll be nice to scale. The reason I subtracted a star is for their sales tactics. When showing you the prices they show you a price per seat. After going to check out you realize multiple things. First that price is the annual price, you have to pay more for monthly. Second they automatically put you with 5 seats which might trick people into thinking you have to do 5, but you have to go in and edit it to two seats. That’s the next problem, you can’t do only one seat. Even if there is one of you. You have to pay for two. All of this was very frustrating when I was deciding to pull the trigger and purchase the product. To top it off I contacted their sales chat and asked for a human. The bot prompted me a few questions then asked how many people were on my team. I answered less than 15 and the bot gave me FAQ’s then turned off the chat. A clear sign that they don’t care about you if you’re a small business. If that were fixed I’d give it a 5. I recommended them to a few people, but unfortunately I had to warn them after that portion. If they just changed that it would be awesome!

Looks simple but feels clunky to me
I don’t find this app to be very intuitive in design. I find myself wasting time by looking for simple functions, such as setting privacy. I expected more transparency in settings and more fluidity in project management - based on the sample pictures here. Maybe it is more simple to use than it seems at first glance, but I found the setup to be confusing, possibly because it’s geared more for teams. I’m a Solopreneur so I have no team to share projects with. Therefore, constantly seeing prompts to invite team members or to share a project or to even have a project set to “public,” just makes no sense for me. It can be a little defeating and overwhelming to be consistently reminded that everything is a solo activity. I think it’s an awesome team app option that is free and ..for anyone who wants to take a little time learning how to access the mobile app functions or better personalize the project tasks, it is most likely a winner. But solo artists and entrepreneurs should keep looking. This is why I am more neutral with a 3 star rating. It’s not a bad app, it’s just not feature rich or intuitive enough for my needs. To clarify, I’m looking for quick and easy note taking and brain dump features in a clean and intuitive app layout that features project management through fast and easy task organization. If it takes too long to fumble for settings then I’ve already forgotten what I opened the app for.

Love Asana, but not iOS
Are use Asana a lot for work, and overall, it’s been an incredibly valuable tool for myself, and my colleagues to manage a strategic plan, various workflows, ad hoc, teams, and projects that come up throughout the year. But I really find myself avoiding using it on my iPhone because it’s just a really clunky UI. There’s also a few things that you can do on the computer that are missing on the app which in this decade I feel like it’s really just unacceptable for a Saas product that was developed so recently. For example, you can’t create a new team on the app, only on the computer. I recently had this problem, while on business travel at a conference and identifying something that needed addressing. I wasn’t lugging my laptop around to the conference sessions, but I wanted to start laying out our project. It would be assigned to a new team though, so I can’t do it. I googled and found a post in user community forum from over five years ago of someone asking for this feature, and getting blown off by the support rep. 👎 Also, in addition to having your own dedicated my tasks list, I feel like every new user profile should automatically get as a default, a team consisting of just themselves, for building out richer projects that they aren’t ready to populate into any team yet. Like how you always have your own DM channel with yourself in Slack.

Great App BUT Missing these 2 features are killing team work and productivity
Asana has really been a game change for me personally. BUT, not so much for my team. People are typically stressed out and overwhelmed with Asana because of these 3 things. 1- IOS and even on Web app, it’s EXTREMELY difficult getting to the conversations area. As a result, people on my team resort to random and chaotic text/email threads. Solution? Have a dedicated conversations/chat area on iOS, easy to find and not hidden away. It’s questionable how they placed conversations deep within project area. For those new to Asana and even tech for that matter, it’s really a pain to get people to use a tool when important features are tucked away. 2- Feedback from my team has suggested that it is equally confusing and difficult trying to find files, folders and reference material. Sure Asana has a dedicated space hidden to find files and app for a particular project however, there really needs to be a central are to not just see files/folders but have ways of organizing as see fit. In our business, our team is constantly using the same documents for projects or our business. Solution? Create a a documents/folders dashboards are for which to store and save files with flexibility. Basecamp did this the best having hierarchy and easy accessibility for documents and folders.

Love Asana.- Needs offline Mode though…
I was searching for the perfect task list / project management software to help me and my incredibly short attention span gain an ounce of organization. I needed it to synchronize with multiple devices. I needed it to keep my projects and clients separate, but also needed it to be able to link them if needed. I had to be able to upload files and link them to the projects and clients. I needed to keep notes and comments on each project to keep up with conversations that span emails and various other forms of messaging despite my pleas to stick to email. I found all of that with Asana. Now, I don’t have to remember every detail because I can just take notes freely that are linked to my color coded, time stamped task. It’s a fantastic app and one of the first and last I open daily. My only gripe with it is my inability to work with it on my iPad while I’m on the move since I couldn’t afford the model with cell data. It works when already connected and lost connection, but not if you freshly open the app without being connected. If that little issue is resolved then I have no reason to give this less than 5 stars. Even at the free level, it’s a great app.

Terrible, don’t expect support.
I used Asana for 4 years, after trying to add a new user to a project I ran into trouble. This should be very straightforward, as Asana is, but it’s clear if you run into an issue you will not get the support you need. There is no 24/7 support, I’d get one question troubleshooting emails in the middle of the night and have to await the next day to get basically nowhere. After almost a week of no suggestions of how to fix this on my end, and also lack of clarity from support who spoke about the domains I have and how I should read the support articles on the website already yet there is nothing that comes up when you put in ‘domain’ on the support search (wtaf.) I took the problem into my own hands and saw I had duplicate accounts for my personal email and one from my business email. So I deactivated one from my two personal, but guess what that did, it deactivated and deleted ALL of my accounts. This is irreversible, and completely unclear that this would be the case. Asana doesn’t realize this isn’t for fun, their services are used by lots of small businesses. Years of work and partnerships were deleted instantly. This was user error that made so through bad user experience, avoid this company, there’s so many others to choose from.

Please Revert
We have been using asana extensively to manage both tasks and communication throughout all branches of the company. It’s a lifeline and an extremely valuable tool! Since the newest update a week ago, the work efficiency has been effected significantly. Unread messages are condensed into a drop down accordion (good), but even when you click on the drop down arrow parts of the threads gets cut off and we have to click into every conversation to read the full thread (bad). This is very inconvenient due to the start-from-first formatting in asana, rather than starting from the last comment and scrolling back to historical comments. This means A LOT of scrolling, and creating new/duplicate tasks, just to reduce the amount of scrolling before arriving at the latest comments. The “like” 👍🏻 feature is also less useful now as messages get condensed. We are using asana for very time sensitive updates and tasks. Some employees may receive thousands of updates per day through all the various projects. With the new update, this makes it very difficult to handle the higher volume collaboration that asana is such a great resource for!

New update makes App less mobile friendly
My small construction company has been using Asana for almost 6 years now and this most recent App update which made a pretty big overhaul on the Inbox which has made it almost useless while trying to work in the field. I do like the swipe to archive feature and that you can hide a task string in the inbox, but now that you can’t “like” a comment right in the inbox OR read a comment that is longer than about 10 words only slows down the entire experience. The whole point of the inbox is that you can quickly read through all of the things happening in the various tasks that you own or collaborate on and having to open the task every time to see what someone said or like the comment to let them know you read it or whatever really slows down the workflow, especially if my cell service is slow, and now I find myself waiting until I can sit down at a computer to go through my inbox which is slowing down my response time and causing my inbox to stack up to overwhelming proportions almost daily. Keep the update format, but bring back full comments and the “like” button in the inbox.

pleexy and Todoist pro make it fire
You gotta trick it out just right but after taking off a month to build a system for managing projects, I ended up reluctantly deleting every other app and using asana (my least fav). BUT- then I found out it can be pushed to Todoist pro with pleexy and wow… yes there is so many settings you have to tweak to make it flawless. I have to rely on screenshots to make sure it’s exactly the same for each client I setup. But dang. I get Todoist interface, plus exact time notifications without paying incredibly steep price for asana. Keep in mind, I have the asana setup perfectly using templates I created from paid courses, so for example… my friend already has asana with everything he needs to do. But he never checks it. I come in and make a new project and simplify his goals and tasks, boom, now he’s using it everyday. That’s the big game changer. Aside from Todoist being able to flexibly change things around AND get calendar notifications at exact times I need. The free version of asana app alone is limited without this, and therefore, 4-stars at best.

iPad app is Garbage
Love Asana on the desktop but this iPad app is a dumpster fire. The interface is severely nerfed in order to make it overly tablet-friendly. The entire point of calendar view is rendered COMPLETELY moot when i can only see one day at a time rather than a bird’s eye view of the month or week ahead. No access to templates. Can’t convert tasks to projects. No reporting. Board view is clumsy. Search is super slow. And I’m on the latest iPad Pro so that’s not the problem. The good news is that you can use the browser version on your iPad. The bad news is that when you pay thousands of dollars for a service like this…well, you kind of expect better. As far as Asana in general goes, it’s great. I’ll agree with a few other reviewers about the messaging though: it’s all there but is terribly implemented, which is so confusing to me. It feels like Asana doesn’t want you to use it. Make it it’s own section or a persistent panel that sits on the side or something. That would be a be a game changer; I’d drop our other chat platform.

Working well so far but wish I could upgrade for 1 person
After watching and reading how to work with Asana I started to figure it out more and apply it to how I need to work. It works very well. I’m in the free tier at the moment which is a great thing Asana offers, others only do 30 days. BUT there are lots of missing features, most important to me in timeline view and templates. Most software nowadays you can unlock features with a paid upgrade and I feel this would be super easily for Asana to implement a paid upgrade for one account. Currently you need to pay for 5 users minimum to get the features to make the platform awesome. Seems like a quick fix to make just a one person upgrade or maybe even just a pay to unlock feature sort of thing. Because of that I’m not sure if I’m going to stick around or not. It’s 1/4 the price to get these features from other companies and as a one man business that is a substantial amount.

Exactly task and project management tool
This is an excellent tool. There are some inconveniences. There seems to be no system or order for referencing attached files within tasks/projects. I understand this can be tricky because of the way files are attached to specific tasks or projects, however I’d wager this is a pain point for many users. I also noticed that one assigning hyperlinks to text inside a description of a task, the hyperlink will only populate information within a browser. The pain point here is users are unable to assign hyperlinks that open files from windows file explorer or Finder (for Apple). Please consider that many businesses Do not use cloud-based storage to House sensitive information but yet still need to be able to access files on the network. Allowing hyperlinks to open files within the file explorer could be a powerful solution.

The desktop site is amazing, but the app limits productivity
I love project management software tools and the full computer web version of Asana is a powerful, efficient tool. The mobile app, however, is exceedingly limited. If you are only managing a simple to-do list, no problem. If you have multiple projects with multiple team members, the mobile app is a roadblock to productivity. You cannot view tasks assigned only to you sorted by project. This is huge...you loose the context of the task inside and project. You can view all tasks by project, but you cannot filter to see only your tasks, but have to load and scroll past all those tasks assigned to your team members. If you have a few minutes waiting in line out in the world and want to check off a task...forget about it. You’ll wait for a while as the app loads and then have to spend more time trying to find be relative content. OmniFocus has this solved exceedingly well, but is only for individuals, not teams. I sincerely hope Asana will work on its mobile features. My team simply cannot use it on mobile or tablet devices.

Can’t easily access labels
I like the app for the most part. My only complaint is the confusing interface to filter tasks by label and long process of even adding labels to tasks. Initially I thought that to filter by label I first have to remember a task that has the label I want, then click into that task and tap the label I want to filter. I’d much prefer a “filter by label” added to the drop down that includes “uncompleted” and such. EDIT: It took some poking around, but for some unknown reason the ability to filter by task is under the Favorites tab in Projects. Sorry, but that makes very little sense. I’m glad I figured it out, but how does putting the ability to filter by label under Projects make any sense? They’re applied to tasks, so there should be that ability in the TASK list! This is a failure in basic interface design. Also, for adding a label I have to created the task in the task list, then click into the task, tap the edit button, tap add label, and then type in the label. Far too many clicks. This greatly reduces the usefulness of the app to me since I use labels extensively. Couldn’t you do a pop-up like iCal on the desktop does that allows you to change some of the basics of an entry? Good things about the app are that I can have my to-do list easily accessible on the go and assign team members to tasks relatively easily.

Frustrated about the interface
This app can definitely be a little confusing when workings with a team. We wasted a lot of time in communications especially because texts/threads can become chaotic and not easy to find. After a while, we ended up using emails again since it is messy on the app. Also it has become messy and unorganized since you can create as many subtasks as you need. I understand the idea sounds terrific but in reality it can create disorganization and you can omit a lot of information when you have so many subtasks there. And it becomes worst when people isn’t organized (which on our team creates more chaos on top of that). Overall you can tend to spend more time than the time you should spent on the app becoming less efficient. I found other applications more efficient in general. overall the app works fine with notifications and the desktop app works better than the iPhone one.

HORRIBLE clients of people who want to use this app
If people want to use asana to manage their work, great for them. What is awful about it is it forces their clients to use asana to communicate through asanas messages. I don’t want to install an app. I don’t want to click a link on my email to see what someone wrote me. I want to be able to search my own emails if I need to find something in our thread. I don’t want to use asana, but since the company I’m working with does, I have to go through the hassle. Asana needs to send messages to others as normal emails or something to stop frustrating others who don’t want to use their system. My whole office is beyond annoyed to the point we don’t want to be the one to work with the clients who use asana. If you are thinking of using asana for your own business management, please don’t use their messaging and task system with others. It’s seriously frustrating for others working with you.

Use it daily for our team
I own a business and we use this every day for our small team to keep up with all the millions of things we work on. From company goal setting social, media content planning, to daily to dos, events and more - I like that there’s a mobile app that syncs with desktop so you never miss a beat and get notified via push notifications. I do wish recurring tasks once completed would disappear and reappear on the assigned date rather than living permanently on the board regardless of status. It takes a little bit of getting use to as there’s so many features and ways to organize but overall it’s a pretty great app.

Features not the same in web, mobile
It would be great if this had all the basic features that even the free web version does… but it doesn’t, and that boggles my mind. For me, the biggest thing is that the app doesn’t support tags, which we rely heavily on in Asana. Try to log in in Safari on my iPhone or iPad and… it just redirects you to the app, or if you delete the app, it directs you to download it. Why even have an app if it’s not going to have feature parity (every method of accessing Asana should have parity with the other methods), and why *completely block people* from using your web site to get to the features your mobile apps lack? Tbh, we wanted to expand our use of Asana, but dumb (because this is basic stuff they haven’t fixed in years, and shouldn’t be too hard to do, and are table stakes) stuff like this is just hamstringing our use of it and keeping it really limited.

Absolutely Love This App
I use both the desktop and mobile version of this task manager. I love the ability and ease of use for me to be able to add, assign, follow, update etc my workflow. I’m a GM if a hotel and we have turned this workspace into a place to not only track guest requests, cleaning schedules, waiting lists and more to preventive maintenance and deep cleaning schedules. This keeps us on schedule and on target for completing required work. The ability to comment and attach files keeps all relevant information in a central location and is easily searchable both for completed and incomplete tasks. I recommend this to everyone I can and even show it to new GMs that start the company as a tool to plan their hotels as well.

Asana is amazing!
As an Ops Analyst and Graphic Designer I honestly don’t know what I would do without Asana. I’d miss every deadline If it weren’t for Asana. We are in the process of bringing the whole team on board! The app is definitely limiting so PLEASE check out the web version! Of all the limitations on the app, the one major one I’d love to see rectified ASAP is toggling between Asana accounts! I have two different jobs that both use Asana and can only access one Asana dashboard from the app - no option to add an additional account/e-mail address. Big bummer as I have different deadlines every day! P.S. I still think the app is incredibly functional and worth a shot for everyone. This app made me 10x productive, seriously.

Not very accommodating
In general, while this product is solid and useful, it could be much better if not for the ivory tower attitude of its developers. It’s fine if you’re willing to do things their way. But they don’t give you enough control over the user experience which Is littered with little annoyances that drag down the overall experience. For example, there appears no way to turn off the annoying splash screen in the iOS app that displays for a ridiculously long time. There’s pretty much zero opportunity to tailor it to your preferences or needs. I won’t be persuaded to pay for this app until there is. If you are evaluating this product, there is no obvious or easy way to ask questions or give feedback. (Sorry, help forums are not convenient. Convenient for the developer maybe, not the customer).

Love the app!
I use all the categories and features on the free version. There are 2 things that would make it even more amazing. The upcoming list would be cool if it were already sorted by date. You can get there with several clicks, but why not just set it up at from the start? 2. I used the repeat for all those habits I’m trying to build. I got a little carried away with sub tasks. So when I check off a repeat task with out checking off all the sub tasks, it adds all those sub tasks to a dark pit somewhere. My fix is to stop using the sub tasks and add the list to description. Or just change the date manually.

User Experience is terrible
Trying to do some basic things like look up all tasks assigned to a worker and it’s impossible to find. Not intuitive for sure. When viewing a task and clicking the worker it takes you to a task assigned to someone else. One touch later you’re accidentally un assigning the worker without any warning or confirmation. Accidentally touch another spot and with ZERO WARNING you just completed someone elses task and didn’t even know it. It’s delayed when you click something so you’re don’t know the effect of your click until seconds later and you already clicking something else. The search leaves little to be desired. Its so frustrating, and to make it worse, Asana disabled the web version 100% so there is not even a backup method. They’re forcing this crappy, horribly designed iOS version on all. In summary, I think this was designed for the unicorn user. I mean for the person who actually designed it. I expect that persona to have small fingers, and know exactly where the mystery hotspots are. For me, I’m uninstalling this iOS version and looking for a better option. Our company has been using Asana since 2014. Use the app and you get that nostalgic feeling of going back to that time.

Customer service???
We have been dealing with a double account now for over a month. Customer service is only via email. Though they continue to link my account to another company that I don’t own, which that they did without my persuasion, they are not solving the problem. They Keep emailing the same fixes that don’t work, and do not provide any human to get on the phone to get it resolved. I would love their platform, if they weren’t so messed up in the customer service department. Though it will be a HUGE undertaking, I am now faced with having to take our entire company setup offline, and to some other platform. We have spent hours and hours setting this one up. This is costing our whole team money. But honestly, we have come to the end of our rope with this crew.

I enjoy this app however improvement is needed before I buy into premium
This has certainly helped with task management and notifying my employees on a central interface however there are a bit of kinks to be made: -Being able to assign a task to more than one person so they show on their dashboard -Being able to have "announcements" instead of just tasks and projects so I don't have to assign a task and add followers which once they view won't see again unless they search for it because I'm the person "assigned". I want it to show up on their dashboard until I remove it. The conversation option doesn't really work for this and is also not availablen on the phone app. -the inbox has a tough time loading new and incoming notifications on the phone app and more often than not it won't load at all but I can see I have notifications yet to be seen so then I have to go on my computer to view the notifications in case it's time sensitive. - I also would like for there to be company calendar everyone can view for the public events, mandatory events, and schedule.

Best in project organization and calendar recurrences
I’ve tried every app out there for calendar and project organization and they all lacked something. Asana has it ALL. I’m able to get all my needs met by the free version of the app and for that reason alone I’m considering upgrading for some of the bells and whistles as I’m sure they can only make the experience better. We use this in my office for project management, recurring tasks and deadlines. I’m now using it at home to help keep us all on the same page with vacation planning, appointments, chores, and bill pay.

Love Asana, App needs work
I love Asana. It’s one of the best productivity web apps I’ve used, and I particularly love how they listen to feedback. However, their mobile app and iPad app definitely needs some functionality and interface upgrades. For one, my team tends to check on individual member bandwidth via calendar view, but currently that’s not possible when viewing tasks for other team members, only your own tasks and projects. Another is the inability to see the projects a task belongs to when just glancing at your task list. I have to select each task individually to see what project they belong to. It’s quite annoying especially since we use templates for our projects — so I end up with 4 tasks with the same name from different projects. There’s just a lot more functionality and interface design in the Web App over the mobile and iPad app. I’m okay with the restrictions for mobile, but I just switched to working on an iPad and would love to see the app become a little more robust. Til then, I might just go on safari and use the web app on my iPad. Not ideal, but it’ll give me the functionality I need to use Asana effectively.

Web version great, app hard to navigate
The web version of Asana is amazing and handles my multitude of tasks. The app (hence the rating) is clumsily laid out with odd and terrible choices — My Tasks has a compact mode, other boards do not? Filters I set on the website do not automatically carry over? (The structures do — I can set them here — but it would be lovely if they auto-synced for a uniform experience) In many ways the app and site experience feel completely divorced from each other. 99% of my work is via the site — I highly recommend Asana as a product — but the mobile app needs a careful restructure and redesign that is built in the mode of “hm I am using my phone, I need to scroll down the vast majority of time as that’s how phone apps work given the physical size.” And/or — swipe left and right to open new modes on a task (complete, or the various stats, etc) On a phone I am far, far more focused on a task than organizing mg workflow. On the site, the opposite! IN SHORT: site great, product great, mobile feels needs significant design work. 2 stars because it does work albeit is mostly useless to my specific workflow.

LOVED the app, but so disappointed
Let me start off by saying if you need a push notification to pop up as a reminder when something is due, the app is NOT capable of providing that. I am beyond disappointed because this app gave us everything that we were looking for. I had reached out to the Customer service team to inquire about this because I thought I was doing something incorrectly, however they have gotten back to me saying the app is incapable of providing that sort of notification. I do want to note that I was getting notifications when something was commented on or liked, so the capability is there they just haven’t gotten to it yet. But overall great app, but disappointingly did not satisfy our needs.

Good but Needs Account Switching/Multiple Accounts Support
It needs a functionality similar to Gmail or Instagram where you can have (and monitor) separate accounts through the same app without having to log out and in. I understand this is meant to happen through “Teams” and their different views, but linking two accounts this way is not always feasible (if one, for example, has two different and unrelated businesses both on Asana that one would rather not associate; or one account for personal tasks, goals, errands and another is given by one’s workplace and they have no reason to be mixed).

Favorite productivity app
This is my favorite productivity app ever. I work at a church and this helps us manage our projects and special events. We use the desk top version for our task lists. But I love the app because, when I am at events or church services away from my actual desktop, if someone asks me to do something, schedule a meeting with a pastor, or just whatever, it is so easy to simply add the task to my to-do list on the go. This removes the pressure of having to remember the task from Sunday to Monday, giving me my weekends back and freeing up mental real estate to focus on relationships rather than my calendar. It’s amazing!

Fantastic platform, but could use a few key updates
Absolutely love Asana - swear by it for project and task management. The app lost a star from me because it lacks an Outlook integration for iOS. Super frustrating to be using your phone for work and not be able to make an actionable task, easily linked to an email, like you can on the desktop app. An offline mode would also be helpful. If you look at the Asana customer boards, both pieces of feedback (especially the mobile Outlook integration) has been brought up for literally years. People are even moving to Trello for it and I might too. Please, Asana, add these!

Asana is The Tool for enhanced productivity and focus
I have been using Asana for more than eight years and year by year this product keeps getting better and improving the way how you manage your personal and team work activities and tasks. The UI/UX is excellent and flexible. Asana is my number one tool for planning and organizing my projects. Regardless if you are working on your own or in a team, Asana is there to help. I strongly recommend Asana as a task and project management tool. Try it for yourself in the web or mobile app and let us know.

Feature Request
Flexible Widget The widgets are pretty much useless. It ALWAYS displays 0 Tasks unless the tasks are actually due TODAY. I'd like to see users have the flexibility to choose what they want displayed in the widget. All Tasks, My Tasks, Overdue Tasks, etc. Showing me 0 Tasks even though I have 50 overdue tasks is not helpful. Persistent Views Every time I go to My Tasks in the iOS app, my view settings have reset. It would be better if my view settings would persist, so that each time I return to My Tasks, it is configured just the way I like, with the filters I like, sort of the way I like, and only showing in complete tasks instead of all tasks. This makes for a more consistent and better user experience.

Improved coworker communication
I work at a non-profit agency that has three locations. We have used Asana for 5 hrs (I think) and this has improved our communication greatly. It has helped with even the simple things such as setting meeting dates that everyone can go to. We also share pictures of activities that are then used on our social media and newsletters. As a side note… I love the update descriptions. They are very clever. Most co-workers have auto update on so I often do a screen shot of the note and post on Asana. 😂

Watch Out - Will Not Accept Single Users
First, asana is a great platform. It’s got everything I needed and so I went through the 30 day trial only to get a nasty surprise at the end. They refuse to allow single user licenses. Seriously. They won’t take your money unless you can drag another coworker into it. So they force single users to pay DOUBLE in order to use their platform. I can’t even wrap my head around the idea of refusing a user’s subscription and good will. Now, all the project data I’ve input over the last 30 days is being held hostage because I won’t pay for an extra seat I don’t need or want. Keep in mind I want to pay them! I’d be happy to start a paid subscription. They simply won’t let me because all I want is a single license.

A fantastic app
I have spent endless hours in so many apps trying to understand their features, workflows, settings, etc and making my life fit to them. So frustrating! And it doesn’t ultimately work! But then I came across Asana. It has a simple interface and yet deep functionality. It’s beautiful in form and function. It’s intuitive. The web site as well as the app work so well. I find the app fully functional for most anything you want to do. This entire ecosystem was so well thought out. I use it every day. I would be lost without it. Thank you!!

Awesome free version of the app.
Let me start with saying that I’m using the free version of this app to keep track of a couple different personal projects I’m working on. It’s so easy to use and reminds me a lot of Jira, which I use for work. It’s easily boosted my productivity and keeps me going while working on multiple tasks. While the paid version has some of the better features, the free version has enough features for the home enthusiast worker trying to move along on personal projects. Great product.

Beautifully works as a WIP
In search of a low cost WIP (work in progress) app and found this. We are forcing it to do what we want and it couldn’t be any happier. This app is amazing. It is flawless and every time we think “I wonder if we could implement this in the app?” .....we can. It does everything we need and not only allows us to communicate with those who depend on our services, but they can watch the progress on each of their items as well as see when it has shipped. Please don’t let this app ever die! Our business now relies heavily on it.

A distant third from desktop and iPhone version
Asana desktop is great, and Asana on iPhone is also pretty good, but please fix the iPad app. It feels like little or no thought went into porting the iPhone version. If you only fix one thing here, fix the column proportions. Either make them resizable or dynamic or make them 50/50 instead of 75/25 or whatever it is. Seriously: when commenting on tasks, you give us a tiny, tiny box on the bottom right with a massive amount of empty space on the screen in the middle. Take a cue from Things 3, which does the task list UX on mobile far better. The iPad would be the perfect Asana device, but it’s actually less useful and more frustrating than this same app on the much smaller iPhone. 2/5

Terrible technical support
Month wasted with the technical support sending me down different paths to fix what should have been a fairly simple issue. After different technical support employees giving me solutions that did not work they finally tell me that I am out of luck and I have lost my subscription. They cannot refund it or transfer it to another account that they can get to work. They then kindly told me to make sure you read the subscriber agreement. I would warn everyone to make sure to read the fine print or better yet find another solution. I have been a user for years but they have lost me for life over the treatment I have received. I may post the full transcript so you can see the treatment on another post.

Easy to use
I am probably the most unorganized person ever lol. This app is simple to use but effective. I use this app for College assignments. It lets me choose to look at my tasks via calendar, board, or list. I love the board it’s more organized for me. I love that you can check things off and the reminders it gives you.. I need lots of reminders lol. It’s also nice that you get like a month free trial without putting your card information in. Definitely recommend!!

Would be a 5 if these two are added
The Asana iOS app has improved significantly. I actually enjoy using the iOS app and it’s my preferred interface. The comments below are for Asana in general. 1. Please provide better file management. The current process is clunky and frustrating. Users should be able to put files in an hierarchical structure. There should also be a comprehensive search feature. 2. The chat function is the least used function in my organization because it is buried so deep in the app. Users resort to Teams, Email and Whatsapp for project chat and discussion.

Scam Alert
This company as well as Monday both trick buyers into thinking their product price is inline with what one would think the price is. However, at checkout you will be charged for 5 seats (5 people/users) that can only be lowered to 2 later. So you pay for two users even though there are more one person companies than there are large companies by a huge margin. I absolutely hate this trickery. If your product is do good you can charge for one seat and as we grow we will gladly add users as we hire them. Monday is even worse with confusing “whats included” stuff that makes no sense! I just went back to using google sheets. It’s free and does 90% the same thing once you get it lined out.

Unable to reach tech support
We are a team of 2, and only one of us has access to the home page. We both had it for the first hour or so, then mine disappeared and has never returned. The live webinar was no help- they said to contact tech support. Tech support is just a series of articles and none apply to my situation. Tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, updating the app, updating my iPad Pro, search you tube videos, etc. I can never ever get to my Home Screen and now it’s a useless app. Shame because we were in love with it at first! If anyone has a way to help me, I’m listening! Thank you!

Cluttered and overwhelming
Other apps like Jira have recently overhauled their user interface to make it better able to convey the most important information first and filter everything else with tons of space in between so that the amount of information is less overwhelming. I think Asana could do a lot to improve their notifications both in filtering and selecting when they want to be notified. I also think that Asana is somewhat confusing and in someways is almost too flexiblewhen setting up projects and working cross functionally because it requires almost what seems to be a collegiate degree to understand how the pieces fit together

Missing Critical Functionality: Prioritizing
Thought I would use this app for my husband and I to keep track of all our household projects. I am a Project Manager by day and have worked with a few different professional tools. Asana is missing a very basic piece of functionality: prioritizing! The priority set by the drag and drop feature should be carried to all member’s lists of the project (everyone on the project should be working off the same priority). I looked up some work-arounds to accomplishing this, like custom fields, but they are not available in the free version. This should be an out-of-the-box, free feature. Going to delete this app and keep looking for one to meet our needs.

Perfect for a Design Team
I run a small design agency with less than 5 people, so we need a tool that is robust, but not so feature-filled that it’s cumbersome to manage. This combines the best of tools like Trello (Boards/Kanban method) with more full featured task management and collaboration. I’ve gone through a host of tools, paid and unpaid, and Asana has quickly become a favorite and indispensable part of our day to day operations. The app itself offers most, if not all, of the features of the web app and is super fast. Highly recommended.

Love it but constant updates create problems
The latest updates allow more functionality in “My Tasks”, now my issue is that dragging and dropping tasks into a specific order doesn’t work well on mobile. Tasks get jumbled up and the screen has to be refreshed several times before the correct order of the tasks shows. As you can imagine refreshing the screen 2-3 times before I can move a task is annoying and time consuming. Please fix this user experience on mobile.
