2016 - Asana adds Custom fields to stand out over Producteev


Task management app Asana  is introducing a new product called custom fields, that will let you tailor Asana’s information management to cover a variety of structured data points. As Asana describes it, a company that, for example, might have been conducting a recruiting drive can now use Asana to create a form to track more details about actual candidates; a marketing team can now drill down into a larger plan to track specific campaigns; engineering teams can use it to record and monitor bug tracking; and design teams can use it to provide more detailed looks and updates about larger projects. The company also will be integrating custom fields into its API.  It means that you could, theoretically, come up with new applications of it that expose Asana even as a customer-facing tool to instantly gather and start structuring information.

2013 - Task management app Producteev is now completely free. Asana should better react



You probably remember that at the end of last year Jive acquired the online collaboration service Producteev. And since then Producteev has been quiet and the users didn't have the certainty about its future. But today we have the good news. Producteev will continue working, and even better, it becomes absolutely free (until now it was free only for up to 2 users in the workspace). What is the reason of such altruism? Ilan Adebassera, the founder of Producteev, who continues to manage the service at Jive, says that "tasks are the most basic, fundamental part of getting work done and it should be free (at least for the vendors that want to find the way into the enterprise)". And it's true. Look, Jive now is competing with Salesforce. And Salesforce has a similar service Do.com, and in it task and project management - are free features.
