Too late for Trello & Asana?

Have the fast-paced ClickUp and Monday caught up too much?

The last few years for the project management software space have been rather exciting!

Tools like ClickUp* and* have risen to the challenge, giving more traditional tools like Trello and Asana a run for their money, but what lies ahead for Trello and Asana…

And can they hold up a good fight? 🗡

👑 The Kingdom of Views

Asana’s Timeline View

Views help us navigate our days, and people are understanding the growing importance of flexible data and how it can change the way you work.

For much of the last 2 years, Trello and Asana haven’t had many views outside of the basic. Trello had the Kanban board view and the calendar power-up to offer to their customers and same goes to Asana with board, list and timeline — only recently have they added more layers.

Tools like Monday, see below, have been adding a variety of views to help different types of members — and along with other more modern additions to the project management space have made views key.

Like with all tools, sometimes reflection and seeing what the market really loves can help, but the focus of being nimble in releases can help you catch-up what you’ve missed on.

The key will be adding views, improved onboarding and greater wiki abilities — to help continue the innovation in the project management field.

📒 Note: More recently, in the last year, Asana have been upping their game with video updates of all news features.
