This new design simplifies the tracking work to completion cycle, which further speeds up the process of on boarding teams on Asana. It flaunts an all new top bar which highlights the on goings on Asana’s My Tasks and My Inbox, also featured is a Quick Add button for adding tasks, projects and conversations in the product. For better organization of projects it displays a calendar of upcoming milestones with a beautiful arrangement of project files in the system, in proper hierarchy for easy access. Another intriguing feature is the ability to start a conversation on the task among people working on the project.

Atlassian also made new announcements on similar lines regarding its project management tool JIRA. The new update for JIRA brings in an all new independent work-tracking and collaboration application for other corporate teams which include HR teams, finance departments and marketing teams. Three separate products, namely JIRA Software, JIRA Core and JIRA Service Desk will be now available for service. JIRA Software has been specifically designed in the lines of interest of Altassian’s software developer followers. This would help them to track their procedure of app building and services like the earlier versions. JIRA Core however targets non-programmer followers and JIRA Service Desk is for service workers.The application is found on a number of IT help desks who use JIRA for tracking user problems and requests.  Atlassian asserts that all divisions still gives the familiar vibes and quality servicing except a few changes in terminology.
