Asana is an online task and project management software that allows teams organize, track, and manage their work. Users can organize complex projects into tasks and subtasks, assign tasks or tasks to people in the team, group similar tasks together to organize them, and set deadlines.
The software includes an advanced search tool that allows you to specify additional requirements for a search. The tool can be used to locate tasks or projects based upon several parameters such as completion date, unassigned tasks, and due dates.

You can also create recurring task, assign copies to multiple stakeholders, track task dependencies and create custom fields to add additional information to tasks. This information could include any information that is important to your teams, such a task priority or associated costs.
Asana allows you to communicate with your team members and share files between them via the messaging feature. Asana has a project dashboard which displays key performance metrics for projects. It can also help you identify bottlenecks or efficiencies in your team’s workflow.
