Asana vs. GitLab Issue Boards
Asana is used for collaborative project management and tracking. It can integrate emails, files, tickets, and more offering over 100 integrations. GitLab is a single application that spans the entire DevOps lifecycle, providing not only project management, but also planning, CI/CD, packaging, verification, release, and monitoring, all automatically looping back their status and data from across the lifecycle into the issues being tracked.
GitLab has Issue Boards, each list of an Issue Board is based on a label that exists in your issue tracker. The Issue Board will therefore match the state of your issue tracker in a user-friendly way.
Create new issues from the Issue Board
With GitLab Issue Boards, you can create issues directly from the board and assign multiple labels allowing them to appear on multiple boards.
Construct Issue Boards around issue labels
An Issue Board is based on its project’s label structure, therefore, it applies the same descriptive labels to indicate placement on the board. GitLab issues can appear on multiple issues and they still have meaning without the context of a particular board.
Add multiple issues to the board
From an Issue Board, you can add multiple issues to lists in the board by selecting one or more existing issues.
Multiple Issue Boards
Large companies often have hundreds of different projects, all with different moving parts at the same time. GitLab Enterprise Edition allows for multiple Issue Boards for a single project so you can to plan, organize, and visualize a workflow for a feature or product release. Multiple Issue Boards are particularly useful for large projects with more than one team or in situations where a repository is used to host the code of multiple products.
Since GitLab fans wrote most of the text here there is a pro-GitLab bias. Nonetheless we try hard to ensure the comparisons are fair and factual. Please also add things that are great in other products but missing in GitLab. If you find something that is invalid, biased, missing, or out of date in the comparisons, please open a merge request for this website to correct it. As with all the pages on this website you can find where this page lives in the repository via the link in the footer.
