First things first:

What is Asana?

Asana is a project management software that was founded in 2008 by former Facebook executives as an internal tool within the company to “help everyone track their work.”

In other words, it’s a project management tool intended to improve team communication and collaboration.

What is is a Work Operating System (Work OS) where you can create any work software to run all of your work–from projects to workflows and everything in between.

It’s intuitive yet powerful, and helps teams of all sizes adjust to shifting needs, create transparency, collaborate with ease, and automate mundane grunt work.

Yes, you can use for workflow management, but you can also use it as a CRM, to manage your ad campaigns, to track bugs, automate reminders for upcoming due dates, or just about anything, really.

Asana features: straightforward and minimalistic

For those of us who don’t identify as tech savvy (no shame), Asana has a minimalistic interface. That being said, because of how straightforward it is, it’s less visual than other competitors.

Asana also offers only six view options (like Gantt charts and calendar), which is less than some of its competitors, like that offers eight different view options. But, the company offers a feature called Workload, which prevents burnout by letting you set restrictions on team members’ workloads. P.S.— has a workload view too, just putting that out there… features: visual dashboards, automations, and more!

Because allows you to build any work software on top of it, it has A LOT of features that are simple to use, set up, and master. We’ve narrowed down some of our favorites here: features showing different boards
