J'ai utilis CyberOffice de faon spontane, sans difficult sur mon ordinateur en dplacement. C'tait gnial de discuter avec mes collaborateurs dans d'autres pays et avec mon secrtariat. Pas grand chose de moins utiles. Les garde-fous de scurit et protection dans les salles de runion et inter bureau ne sont pas de trop mais plutt trs apprcies. CyberOffice m'a permis rgler un problme de prsentation d'une stratgie promotionnelle pour un vnement trs important qui tait la dcoration de salle de spectacle pour l'lection de Miss nationale dans un pays. A distance, j'ai prsent ma maquette de dcoration de la salle et du fond de scne qui posait problmes entre les sponsors.

Any change due to the pandemic and for our safety and that of our family is a good and comfortable option without putting ourselves at risk by leaving our homes.Any change due to the pandemic and for our safety and that of our family is a good and comfortable option without putting ourselves at risk by leaving our homes. Well, it also has its disadvantage because they give us more work than one usually does in the office because for anything we get distracted and then we are worried about the delays of the work. we have comfort and thanks to this we take care of our personal health and safety and we explore new beginnings and our work environments

The best part about the cyber office is that it is perfect for video meetings for internal and external clients. It is straightforward to use and comparable with all the devicesmoreover its help in CRM of our company to generate leads. There is nothing that I wouldn't say I like. It is a fantastic tool. However, there is sometimes a delay in connection. Rest it work best, and I love this tool personally. The main problem solved by the cyber office is the problem of meeting and connecting with the whole team in one place . This tool is very safe for companies' privacy meetings. sO far this tool has also increased our productivity of the company

What I really love about using this system is that it helps our remote teams to collaborate and be able to meet with one another through our office reunions. I love that our team members can communicate face to face real time. Being in the real estate industry and using this product has really helped our company achieve goals and be able to fulfill our team tasks. We have used multiple video conferencing products and this is one I would always recommend to other businesses Sometimes there is a lag within the connections when we are connected with different team members but it works its way out of it. We also have an issue with peoples voices being cut out when they are talking but it might be in regards to the lag issue. There is also some issues with our employees being able to connect right away but it also might have to do with their personal internet connection. I also am not fond of how many users can be connected while we have our video conferences. Sometimes my screen has too many people connected and I am unable to figure out who is who. The benefits that we have had is being able to communicate with our business development officers and sales agents who are typically out of the office dealing with our clients. It really benefits our company being able to communicate with a meeting and without having to have everyone be in office. The problems that we are trying to solve is better connections and lag time when there are multiple parties connected to the system. So far this product has increased our productivity as far as having our sales team build there business and adding additional clients.

I love CyberOffice, it is a very complete and functional collaboration tool. With this platform we can manage tasks and allow the entire team to be in one place. It is perfect for video meetings and sharing information that helps the entire team to perform and manage all tasks, additionally it is a tool that encourages and facilitates communication Between all team members in a very fast and safe way thanks to the virtual office. Compatible with many devices is perfect for all of us. The platform works great, so far we have had an excellent result, however sometimes there is a connection delay, this does not affect the results. there is nothing I don't like about this tool. This is one of those tools that become indispensable to work, I recommend it to everyone, its ease of use is incredible and the results obtained are as expected. CyberOffice really does what it promises and is worth paying for. Thanks to CyberOffice we have solved communication and meeting problems for the entire work team, the virtual office makes us feel in one place regardless of whether we are meters away. Mainly it has not helped to manage and administer all the tasks of the team in a very easy and fast way, especially very safe since it is a very safe tool to use. The facility It is incredible to use and allows face-to-face meetings with great quality
- Victor J.Manager Services
I love Cyberoffice, it is very easy to use and configure, this platform gives us great collaboration tools that maximize communication between everyone in the office. With this platform we can carry out video conferencing and remote meetings and also organize it according to our calendar, it is possible to share information in a fast and secure way. A very positive point is its ability to adapt to any device and it is very easy to connect, The virtual office is very intuitive and highly configurable, it allows us to do many actions quickly and safely. The only thing I don't like about this platform is that its technical support does not provide quick solutions to the requirements that are made, they must improve that. This platform is perfect for teams that need a virtual office, it is very configurable and very easy to use, its security is incredible. I recommend it. This platform has helped us organize the entire team in a single workplace, the virtual office has become one of our strengths in this time of pandemic, it is very easy to find us all in one place where we can all collaborate in a great way.

Asana is used by almost the whole organization and is a great organizational tool for departments to use with their teams! I love Asana as it helps me figure out what I need to do that day, what I could push out, and who I needed to follow up with based on due dates, task name, and importance. You can assign tasks to other members of your team which is a great help when we are all working from home right now. You can set due dates and combine multiple tasks into one overarching task to stay organized with different projects. This also helps give visibility to higher ups and exec teams on which departments are performing which tasks.
Asana is amazing to use for teams to keep track of weekly check-ins, ongoing projects, and quick asks between teams (such as marketing team to IT team, sales team to logistics team, etc.). It is helpful in project managing ongoing projects and keeping notes of information for multiple people to see or to create reminders for yourself to finish certain tasks. It's not as helpful when brainstorming, I recommend getting on an actual call, but brainstorming could still get done with Asana as you can add multiple collaborators to one task and have many comments chime in. Asana is a great tool to stay organized, on task, and on time with projects.
Assigning tasks - this is a great feature so each member of the team knows which tasks in a project are for them to do. Chat function - the ability to tag other team members in your task is great when you need someone from another department to quickly jump in and review a question you may have, by seeing the previous conversation and attachments. Due dates - assigning due dates helps create expectations for tasks to be finished and I especially like that the assignee can also move their dates around incase things get too busy.
Asana could improve with a better UI so I can organize my daily tasks in order of importance, as they will all say "Due today" instead of allowing me to order them myself in what are the most important tasks to finish in the day. I'd like to be able to see every and any task I've completed in each month of the year incase I need to go back to check some notes within the task. It would be cool if Asana could cross-function with Outlook to mark VIP dates in our team calendars.

Asana lets you view things in tasks. Trello is more geared toward projects with their board layout. I find Asana to have the best user interface of all project management softwares. It may be missing some functionality (like budgeting and time tracking -- which you can add on with integrations), but I feel that I can actually use it. With the other project management tools I get frustrated by trying to figure them out that I don't use them at all.
Asana is completely customizable! I would use it for almost all of my daily, weekly and one off tasks. It does take some time to start to think in "Asana-brain" rather than in "Email-brain." Asana works best when your whole team is on board and commits to using Asana as the main mode of internal communication. While it is easy to create templates out of tasks, you can't create project templates easily, so using it as a training module, for example, is difficult.
Asana has an easy to use UI. Even if you don't get into the advanced things Asana can do for your project management, it's super easy to use and keeps even the most basic task lists organized. Asana lets you view your tasks in multiple views. You can view all the tasks assigned to you or all the tasks under a certain project (i.e. HR). It also lets you customize the views within each project by due date or by other customizable priorities. Asana's email to task and Google Chrome extensions make getting tasks out of your email and into Asana super easy. I forward a large percentage of my emails directly to Asana so that I can prioritize how I choose to follow up and respond to requests in my inbox.
I wish Asana had more customizable reporting. One of the benefits of using Asana is that you can track tasks and actually use those tasks to build repeatable processes, but decoding reports can be challenging. Asana's printing functionality needs improvement. You can use Asana tasks to create agendas, for example, but it's not possible to print a clean agenda to share with a group who's not on Asana and/or doesn't have their computer at a meeting.

Trello is a very simple board based project management tool. It lacks clear display and organization. On the other hand, Asana provides a much better layout on all devices including mobile phones. It is cross platform and has much more advanced features than Trello. Asana is also better because of the comments, likes and inter-communication options.
Asana is very well suited if you want a lighter project management tool with high user - friendliness. It is less suited if you want something super advanced. For example, if you want to create burn rate, calculate velocity, or create agile or waterfall graphs. A key question to ask is : do you want a highly advanced project management tool with steeper learning curve or you can manage with lighter one for now?
Asana does organizing and keeping track of tasks really well. It has smart views which allow you to see and customize a smart view for tasks such as recently completed, sort by deadline, sort by assignee etc. Asana does a good job of allowing people to collaborate. The fact that I can comment and ask question on other people's task is very helpful to me. This removes the need of multiple emails in a way that everyone in the organization or part of the team can see it. Being able to add attachment is also really helpful. Asana does an incredible job of setting privacy and securing my tasks such that tasks in one team of the organization cannot be viewed by others. I can decide to make it publis or private. This is very useful as it allows me to keep tasks secure and effective at the same time.
I hate that Asana does not have time keeping functionality inbuilt. I use Asana with lot of contractors and I would love if there was a time keeping function. Asana sends me a lot of notifications. Sometimes it is super helpful but often I opt out of notifications. I would love to see if Asana can optimize or change the notification frequency in a unique way. Asana does not allow me to chat if the other user or team members are online. I would love to have that feature instead of just commenting.

We also use Active Collab to track tasks and issue work tickets. I find this to be a much harder tool to use vs. Asana. It was not in the drop down menue above but its a tool we actively use and I can tell you its hard to find tickets once you have created them and assigned them unless you keep the link in an email. Asana is easy to locate all your tasks and due dates because of your personal dash and projects list. Active collab requires you to create too many levels for one task, the main ticket, then the tasks within the ticket which you have to individually create to be able to track each milestone, if there is no task assigned it doesnt appear in the designers list of things to do, which in turn creates issues and forgotten tasks. None of this is an issue with Asana.
Asana is well suited for use of product management with multiple users working and contributing to the same project. The inability to assign deadlines to tasks within a project makes it a little stressful on large projects. The fact that you can enter unlimited tasks is a huge pro.
Due to the fact that our team is bi-coastal, we needed a tool that allowed the East and West Coast teams to communicate deadlines without the need to worry about servers and their slowness to transmit/copy information. Asana is a great tool to do that, since it is web based there is no need for downloads, or worry of server crashes, which often happen here. And of course we love the price...FREE! Asana allows us to assign tasks to team members, which they can in-turn inject sub-tasks within, this helps us track where along the process everyone is to make sure we are all hitting our deadlines. The simplicity of the site makes it easy for anyone to use and quickly learn the tool. Real time interaction is a huge help. Comments populate instantly which ensures we aren't missing any questions or concenrs and helps eliminate exesive emails. Asana is a great product to increase communication within a team and requires very little time to learn, unlike some other Project management tools, which tend to be a lot less user friendly.
I would like to see a calendar incorporated into the tool. I would like it to be able to integrate with other tools we use to make the communication flow a little more well rounded. Ability to create Gant charts based on tasks.

Within our organization, most have fallen back to their old way of tracking tasks, which varies between paper and pen notes on sticky notes to OneNote to Microsoft To-Do, to Outlook Tasks, to Windows 10 Sticky Notes. These other tools have familiarity, ease of use, and integration with existing workflows and notifications/presence that Asana lacks, making them much more comfortable and appealing to use for our organization.
Asana has proven difficult for our organization to use consistently. The adoption after initial roll-out was very high, but continued usage dropped to nothing over the course of the first year. After a period of disuse, Asana was again recommended and re-deployed to the employees to use. Adoption the second time around was much lower. What I feel to be the most significant barrier to entry is that Asana is effectively sandboxed and is Yet Another App that needs to be used, instead of interfacing seamlessly with the users' existing workflow, and being present wherever and whenever they work. Even personally, I find that I more often reach to OneNote, To-Do, or even a physical sticky note to file a task and keep track rather than to have to log in to Asana, wait for the painful loading time to complete, find my task, jump to the subtask using an icon that isn't immediately intuitive, and adjust the child tasks as either done, undone, etc. On top of being a completely separate workflow, there is no feedback aside from opt-in emails that need to be created per project/task, as it does not integrate with Windows 10 in any way what-so-ever.
Easy to use UI. Functional and direct task creation. Visibility of key dates is prioritized on the landing page. Tasks, sub-tasks, and other nesting and levels are possible for more complex project phases.
No integration with Microsoft To-Do or the Windows 10 inbox/included apps, including Action Center. A son-PWA website that does not support offline usage, notifications, etc. for rich presence. It needs to have a tab open at all times to be usable. Most of the more interesting (read: non-basic) functionality is locked behind the Premium paywall. Tags and groupings aren't very clear, and child tasks can be viewed flat alongside parent tasks in most views, which is confusing

I prefer Asana's user interface over monday.com. Asana's app is also incredibly helpful and I am not sure if monday.com's app is as loaded with features as Asana's is.
I think Asana is one of the best project management software available. In this world of mostly digital communication, keeping your team on track OUTSIDE of Microsoft Teams/Skype/Slack/Email is crucial as so many moving parts can easily get dropped. Asana is there to hold all of the pieces and easily integrate with your main communication channel.
Flexible organization of project parts - you can easily set up project boards on your own or use pre-built templates to start laying out your project details. Small features - drag and drop functionality makes it super easy to route outside requests, tagging your team members and setting priorities, and the ability to integrate with Outlook are really helpful extra touches. Calendar feature - what good would a project management software be without an excellent calendar feature? Luckily, Asana lets you track goals and progress while keeping an eye on your teammates calendars/workloads.
I think there could be improved clarity around the different levels of Asana. For example, the resources available to paid accounts are not visible from the more basic accounts, so you're not aware that there are expanded options until you look in their knowledge base and see that they have additional features. Exporting projects - you can export a project into a csv, but it isn't pretty. This can be challenging if you'd like to have an archived project folder for open records requests.

A lot of asana is neat. But I have so many pain points. To illustrate this, look how many help videos you have. I don't think a product like this should require someone to sit down and watch 15 videos. Difficult to grasp. I've had collaborators I've invited in persevere with it then tell me "I'm sorry, I hate asana". Eg the 'inbox'. They can see parts of a conversation, so it looks just like the task's own thread except all their own contributions are missing. Suggest you make the inbox view much leaner. Eg2 conversations. With the various people I've worked with it's been more confusion, at least initially I'm still not clear on who sees what and who gets notified of what when there are teams and people direct on projects. And having to assign someone to a project after removing them, so that I can unprovision them? That was awkward When I went to a billed plan, my scheduled webex/gotomeeting session was a no show The space distribution of the ui is out. Why when I close the left projects pane does the list view (left) pane take up more than half the width of the screen, leaving not much for the actual details?? My main screen is Mac laptop, 1280x800 but it's the same on 1920x1080 where the list pane should be much narrower than the detail The tool gears itself to power users by requiring memorising hot keys for formatting, no buttons for new users. In itself this is ok, but then it's too basic because it doesn't support hyperlinks. Hyperlinks. Like from the 1990's. Just put in markdown support please Because of the formatting limits the knowledge base I want to set up is crippled. We're used to Confluence in the past and am poised to move that content over to Confluence If I have a task nested 2 tasks deep, I have to move it to the project, then back down into the other parent I want it in. How about a copy dock somewhere I can put it while I'm moving or something? Do folk get notified of new task when I move a task to project level? Where's my 'recently viewed' list? Navigating and searching are sloow, maybe not in a SF office, but elsewhere. I'd like quick view drop down of stuff I've viewed lately and favorited tasks Sorry to bitch about this. It has nice features. To be honest probably part of our problem is we're not all fulltime on this, so the learning curve for them takes longer to overcome. But getting externals to jump in and do certain bits is useful for us, so as it is now, if I was starting over, I wouldn't use asana
- Fillipe Neyl W.CEO
All of this made me look for "the source", I found Wrike and saw that everything Asana was releasing and charging more for it, was already availble in Wrike even before Asana. So we moved to Wrike and we're happier than ever ;-)
Batter functionality, they listen to their users much more .
Asana changed the way we managed tasks and projects. The secret of Asana is the granular way you can create tasks. You start just typing the task name and decide what other information you should input and when. There's no friction at all, YOU are in control of it. With just the press of the "Enter" on your keyboard, another task os created, and so on. The magic happens when you start to input more info, the assignee, the due date, the custom fields, and much more. From a simple task list Asana becomes a powerful task management system.
Well, after so many great things I mentioned, it's clear that yourself and your team will evolve in task managment. The issue with Asana starts there. The need for more functionality becomes a pain, specially reporting, built in time tracking and things you discover other apps already offer for the same price Asana is charging you. The users start to complain a lot on the Asana Community, speccially after the removal of the dashboard feature (that needed an upgrade) and launch of the Portfolio feature , the upgrade Dashboard needed so badly... the thing is you could only get the the new feature paying double per user (the new Business Plan). Paying users started to lose trust in Asana after this, myself included. The thread about this is the one with most comments on the Asama Community forum. But after more than a year, customers only get canned responses. Another popular complaint is the one with hundreds of paying costumers asking Asana to remove a very disturbing colorful banner asking you to upgrade to the Business Plan. Everyone in yout team is gonna see it and even being a paid user there's no way of hiding it.

Having digital platforms, with staff in different parts of the world, it is difficult to group all the work that must be done in one place, since we use Asana as the main organizational element, we managed to reduce errors in attention by 50% of the users and we increase the productivity of the company's departments. It has a lot to do with the way in which we have managed to identify critical nodes and support them among other areas advanced in their goals. Also, we have received from our customers a positive assessment of their requirements.
I have reviewed native applications of big names of the market, that do not finish convincing you, they offer you many promises in functionalities that do not finish concretizing, that is one of the things that I like the most of Asana, it offers you clarity from the first moment, and It gives you at the same time, a simple interface, very powerful and able to get any team to work with the collective work and common goals. In addition, I like that all co-workers can see in digital every progress and achievement achieved of their assigned responsibilities. Also, it has allowed us to be more organized with the meetings and requirements of our clients. As the planning cannot be rigid, thanks to Asana we have identified aspects that can put at risk the global goals of the company, so we have managed to help the department that presents some difficulty. Actually, Asana gives you the full view, it's a genius.
Entrepreneurs can find in Asana a complete platform and very capable of growing any initiative, that is why I do not identify negative aspects to mention, I have years of use and it is wonderful the ability they have to reinvent themselves in the provision of a service that It looks a lot like wine, it improves with the passage of time.

Asana If apps were food, my mouth would WATER when I mention Asana. It's not just any meal. When it comes to organizational apps, it's THE best dessert. It's SWEEEEEET! It's the app that I'm actually using to write the draft of this review on. Every time I need to move all my to-do's from my head onto another place, I jot them down on Asana. I can use physical calendars, ( I actually do like them)... but Asana has been the ONE system that I use to jot down my goals, to-do's , projects, systems, outlines, notes, reminders, pretty much everything except my shopping list and things I have to fully write. I love this app so much that I'm actually quite proficient at using it thanks to a course that I took called Asana HQ http://bit.ly/asanahq. It has taught me how to maximize my account that I created using my own domain. The beauty of Asana is that it's simple to use, easy to create lists on, group those things into tasks or projects and just literally move forward in life. I have become considerably more proficient in life thanks to Asana. Yes you can buy a computer, and buy some software and gear for your dreams... but if you don't have a tool in place that allows you to nudge yourself forward, you'll most likely be stuck for a very long time. Asana is SO great that I count my lucky stars knowing that it's free. Try it... and don't be surprised if you fall in love with it. It's perfect for the little thoughts you don't want to forget, it's also perfect for the
I can't think of anything. I like it that much. If I had a magic wand, maybe more free features would be nice. I wish they added a progress bar to your tasks or projects to visiaully better be able to gauge the progress we're making. But it's already a great app.

With Asana you will be able to develop different types of collaborative activities quickly and efficiently, improving the product of your work and adding to your work dynamics a lot of productivity. Acquire this software and improve your work dynamics.

I use Asana every day, and it's the first thing I fire up in the morning. I can check it's inbox to see if there are any pressing issues or communications (if I hadn't already seen it in the app), and then run down my tasks which are displayed just as I've set them up. My projects are listed in the order that makes sense to me, and tasks are scheduled, communications, files, etc., all available at a click. It even talks to Toggl, so I can track my time effortlessly. As a one-man agency, I've been able to take on much more work using Asana than if I'd tried to manage everything the old way. Before I used Asana, I tried to manage projects, service and other communications via email, labels, etc., but there's just no comparison. If you make the transition to Asana, you'll be a better coordinator, project manager, business person, etc. You won't be able to help it. ;)
Asana is a very capable project coordination platform. It's very easily customized to fit my individual workflow, and extremely intuitive. I share access with some of my clients to allow them to create, edit and update tasks. I love the way this tool weans stakeholders from the jungle of email.
I wish there were a mid-level pricing tier for entrepreneurs to take advantage of some of the pro-level features, but not have to commit to the fairly pricy upgrade. Don't get me wrong, it's probably very worth it to upgrade, but I'd rather be able to choose the features that would benefit me at a reduced price rather than buy the upgrade for one or two I really want. Like when we had to buy an album just to get the 2 songs we really wanted, lol!
Communication online is a must for our company and industry. We have a in-house team yet after a restructuring of our company a lot of the people I worked with directly became remote. Before discovering Asana, we used other tools but they always lacked something - be in integrations, interface or simple buttons. Under Asana, our collaboration has become much more easy to manage, and visualize. Creating lists and sharing projects with others is super easy, not to mention the amount of third part...
Asana is ok for small simple projects. But for big projects forget it. I had a project with about 90 items and then about 10-20 subitems in each one. If someone checks the main item done, you assume all the subitems are done, but they are not. You have to go through each item one by one and look at all the sub items to see if they are checked off or not. Because the main item can be checked off but the subitems not checked off. Making it totally worthless unless you want to spend hours go...
Allows for a much better organization of work and offers many interesting and comfortable features that make it easier to control work progress. Very nice design as well. It is a good alternative to many expensive softwares.
It's easy to use, very intuitive, great for organizing team assignments.
Beautiful interface, great for managing tasks, 10/10
