In the industry of project management and productivity tools, there are a huge amount of apps and services which all claim to do the same thing. While Asana is more oriented towards project management, it can also be used for productivity management too. It is a cloud-based web application which allows users to add tasks and assign them to team members, essentially managing a team and project. Out of all the software which I have tried in this area, Asana is truly one of the best. First of all, unlike other cloud-based web applications which usually limit the functionality of their free versions, most of Asana's main features are available within the free version. The main limitation is in the amount of users, which is quite a generous amount. In fact, the free version does not impose a limit on the amount of tasks which can be added, unlike other productivity software. This makes Asana perfect for small companies or teams. On the same point, Asana has decent integration with Harvest, so that tasks are automatically timed and added to the respective user's Harvest account. This is also ideal for freelancers, since the amount of hours can be automatically included in Harvest invoices. In terms of functionality, it is very quick and easy to add a new task and assign to a team member, which allows users to spend more time focusing on project management, rather than the tool itself. It is also possible to upload attachments of various media types to a project, similar to how Evernote handles media within notes. Users have access to a dashboard which uses charts and visual aids to indicate the progress of certain tasks and projects. This is excellent for measuring productivity of different team members and provides valuable information for project management. Furthermore, when assigning a task to a team member, it is possible to specify a deadline and track their progress.While Asana has a huge amount of features, users must dedicate some time to getting used to its layout and functionality. It does not have a steep learning curve, however it takes time to understand which features are required and how to use them. Another disadvantage of Asana is that users must have internet access to manipulate and view tasks and projects, since Asana is a web-based service.

Pros :

  • Unlike other cloud-based web applications which usually limit the functionality of their free versions, most of Asana's main features are available within the free version.
  • It is possible to upload media and other attachments to projects.
  • There is integration with Harvest so that tasks are automatically timed and added to the respective user's Harvest account.
  • It is very quick and easy to add a new task and assign to a team member.
  • The free version does not impose a limit on the amount of tasks which can be added, unlike other productivity software.
  • Users have access to a dashboard which uses charts and visual aids to indicate the progress of certain tasks and projects.

Cons :

  • Asana does not have much offline functionality, so users are dependent on an Internet connection if they would like to view, amend and add tasks.
  • Due to Asana's large feature set, users must dedicate some time to getting used to it.

I think Zoho Projects is an extremely powerful tool for managing projects. The wide range of useful and applicable tools it offers its users are both powerful but at the same time extremely simple to use and navigate. I believe that this web application would be useful for small businesses and project teams. Whether it can handle extremely large project teams is another issue but I think it could quite possibly do the job. Just like all the other applications Zoho offers, this tool has exceeded my expectations and I will quite happily use it in the future. This tool is a prime example of an Enterprise 2.0 tool because of the intergration of many web 2.0 features such as: status updates, RSS feeds, wikis, and so on.

If you're looking for a tool to help you keep your projects organized, especially if you work on those projects with other people, Asana is a new webapp that can help you keep on top of your to-dos, get updates from other people helping you, and capture everything you and your team are doing in one place so everyone can refer to it quickly.

Zohoprojects looks good at first however there are some small bugs. More importantly there are MAJOR issues once everything is set up. Unfortunately we had to leave zohoprojects for privacy reasons. Within the project management system as it is currently developed every user can see every comment and task for every other user in the project. We contacted zoho and there is no way of changing this. Our setup currently is we have employees, contractors, managers and clients. As far as zoho is concerned though all of the above make no difference as zohoprojects lets every user even the contractors see EVERY detail of every conversation and tasks between managers and clients. Eventhough there are priviledge roles to prevent users from editing other users tasks they can still view EVERYTHING. Every login or message left, every detail, task, invoice etc generated for every other user. Therefore two completely independent contractors for example could view absolutely everything that is going on with eachother. Absolutely ludicrous. This is certainly a fundamental and very basic requirement which any project manager would expect out of the box. Zohoprojects however seems not to care about it. We contacted them many times about this issue to find a workaround however there is none. We got a nice apology from India but unfortunately that is not enough. This lack of functionality can not be omitted. It is essential. All it needs is a tick box within each project titled "Tick for Assigned users to be able to view tasks and milestones only" In summary: If you are intending to use zohoprojects to manage one or more contractors and employees for your business then DON´?¢T. You could do more damage to your business through this lack of privacy functionality than good if you do. As every project user can see EVERYTHING that everyone else is doing including any login or sensitive information that is posted. There is no way of making any message or task private. Also ALL client information can be viewed by EVERY user also. Zoho does have a solution to client information being visible to all the users which is to set up one project for clients and one for workers. Surely that negates the complete purpose of the system in the first place? All I can say is "It´?¢s a shame". Unless they fix it soon they will certainly lose huge amounts of customers and revenue just the same as they have now lost ours.
