Short details Asana connects your tasks and projects to anyone you want to work with. Use of workspaces to organize all the teams and collaborate with other people while keeping everything separate. All history and discussions for each task are kept together and updates you of the changes to the tasks and projects. Utilizing Boards (projects) and cards (tasks), Trello solves about a dozen problems all at the same time over grid-oriented task lists, including: scanning to-do lists repeatedly, confusion about priorities of assignments, inability to see updates on what has changed in to-do lists, better team visibility and empathy on workloads, consolidating multiple lists used to compartmentalize, automatic reporting back and accountability, easy and persistent commenting around tasks that doesn't get lost, and several other needs.
