Asana, and its Shortcomings (Experience with Frogbugz, Trello, and Wrike). I lost love with it quickly.

First, Asana is great at a glance. It seems hip, love the UI, tagging, labeling, etc.

Easy to have Conversations, Lists, and Boards (trello style). All great.

But where it derails is the details:

  1. Reporting is terrible. "Whats open, whats closed, whats due" sounds good for a 3 man band, terrible for 6 distributed teams and departments.

  2. SLOW - at first it seems fast, but seeing the webapp spin up every time is making me want to die. Click on a link to see a post, convo, etc, minutes a day wasted waiting for intitial load. No Caching, but to be fair its fast when going.

  3. No hirearchy. Projects have their own little areas. No parent / Children

  4. Gantt? Forgetabout it. Their best solution: link to a company selling a service to make asana work for you

  5. Prioritize / Score / Rank? (scrum style) - nope

  6. Track performance of people adhering to deadlines, or missing them - Nope
