Asana was a little too robust for our needs so we stopped using it. It is good for some recurring tasks.

Asana is adequate. I wish it had a better UI, especially in regards to time charts. It is simple and easy to use but sometimes complex projects evolve into long lists and it is not really helpful.

We tried all of the project management tools. We’ve tried Basecamp, Trello and Asana--of the three, Asana had the best mobile experience.

Asana - Best Project Management Tools for Startups

Asana is the dream tool for the list-makers and taskmasters of the world. It is a comprehensive project management tool that allows you to create lists and task boards to manage projects. A variety of additional features, including email integration and sub-task checklists, help Asana stand out against other project management tools. Its balance of usability and robust features makes Asana a popular choice among startups, though some entrepreneurs find it unnecessarily complex.

How startups use Asana?

Asana is free to use for small teams, which has given it a firm user base of seed-stage startups. But many small teams prefer a simpler tool. Asana’s most loyal users are Series A and smaller Series B startups; they appreciate Asana’s broader array of features versus simpler platforms like Trello, but don’t yet need the more technical feature set of a project management heavyweight like JIRA.

How much does Asana cost?

Asana is free for teams of up to 15 people, although a premium plan can be purchased at any time to unlock more members and more features. Plans start at $21 per month for up to five additional members.
