All the awesomeness of Asana
Unlimited tasks, projects, and conversations
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.
I really enjoy using HiTask, as there is literally a thousand different apps that are web based to help you manage your day, your personal to-do lists, things at work, your family chores, etc. I like that it is targeted for people who are on the go who want things down now or also you can write things down for the future just like a little notebook.It is very simple to use, track goals and they are constantly simplifying the process. I have a lot of friends in India that use this tool as well. I am not sure where the company is based out of, but it means it is a great company that can strive in many different industries and markets and it looks like it is not going to stop growing!
Pros : You can see your different tasks, what you write on your calendar and easy change or edit what you have down there. You also can do an option like copy and paste to edit a certain task.Like a few apps, I have they have a feature when you can group different things together. Kind of like on the iPhone where you can put an app inside another app and then you can name it.I really like that you can basically edit anything and then share the certain document or file with your colleagues or co-workers.This week at work I am leading some tips and tricks and organizational time management seminar and I think I am going to bring up HiTask and how crucial it is to our groups' success :)We use a lot of Google products at work, and this can sync up with your calendar meaning Google calendar and also your email meaning Gmail.
Cons : I wouldn't really say this in cost, but it does get expensive. For five people to actually is it, it is around ten dollars a month, and they also have a free trial and an every 6-month payment plan.It is limited in functionality, I wish we can combine many different apps and mold it all together. I also use Wunderlist. When I time management I have a daily tracker, then what I want to do now then and page for each topic. HiTask can do something similar, so I guess making it a little more customer will help :)

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.More about Zoho Projects

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.More about Zoho Projects
