Monday is an online collaboration tool for teams, including those working remotely. It’s a perfect tool for project management and task management, as it allows you to easily manage all your projects. Similar to Monday, Asana is also a cloud-based management tool that works perfectly for both small and medium businesses.

Both tools share several workflow management features and benefits. Let’s compare some of the differences between them, which could help you in choosing the right tool for you!

Setup and Signing up

Getting started with either is quite easy. Just enter your work email, hit enter and that’s it. Anyhow, you should know that Monday offers a free trial for 14 days, while Asana has a 10-day trial period.

Asana has a “Tour” tab that can help you to learn what to do next. There is also a chat pop-up on the bottom- right corner, where you can ask a question.

On the other hand, Monday doesn’t have that chat function, you can browse through their YouTube channel in case you need help.


When it comes to the price, you will have plenty of options on both sides. Monday charges on a group basis where the minimum number of users is 5. This fact separates Monday from the other services since they usually charge on a per-person basis.

Monday doesn’t offer a free unlimited account. On the other hand, Asana offers a freemium pricing plan. This free plan is limited and supports up to 15 people to manage.

You can try either of them for free and you don’t need your credit card. Monday can be a perfect option If your team is of the right size, while Asana will be a cheaper option for smaller teams


Monday organizes your task on boards that contain group items. This means that you can easily define groups that give you a chance to choose how your project is structured. We’re talking about a flexible platform that allows you to customize all its fields and use them for other things. You also get plenty of integrations with Monday, such as Dropbox, Trello, Slack, and Zapier.

With Asana you can expand your tasks into subtasks and define relationships between them. This is the feature that Monday lacks. You also have unlimited storage space so you don’t have to worry about running out.

Security and Privacy

Monday does offer a lot when it comes to security and privacy. It has a Privacy Shield and the General Data Protection Regulation. It also gives users useful options such as Google-based authentication and password policy settings.

Asana’s data in transit is secured by TLS v1.1 encryption. Asana also offers bug bounties. There are a few useful options available to users, such as logging in via Google and SAML and password strength options. It’s important to say that Asana is covered by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the GDPR.

So in the end, we can say that both tools are easy to use and filled with useful features. Asana is more casual, while Monday is more in-depth. The choice is yours!
