Update: So I am checking out Redbooth.com for now. I chose to try it mainly b/c of of its privacy options even for individual tasks. And for the conversations section, I think it will be very useful for brainstorming and keeping ideas in one place.
Still figuring out how best to set it up since it doesn't use folders.

Salesforce is a CRM. More for contact (customer) management than for project management. There are addons/ways to configure it to do project management too, but unless you need the CRM aspects of Salesforce you're much much better off with something that's built for project management.

Plus, unless you're a nonprofit it's NOT free. Or cheap.

After playing around with a few of these programs i realized I'm looking for something a lot simpler. All i need is a program where i can have lists of tasks and different people can see different lists and when the task had been completed. I also need the ability for an administrator to see all the lists, assign tasks and control who sees which lists. Perhaps i just need to learn how to utilize outlook better? Anyone have any ideas?

Maybe wunderlist?
Each person has their own account, with their own set of lists. You can share lists between accounts, so you can have the admin be shared on all lists, and move things around as they want.

Asana is unbelievable and extremely adaptable. I am happy to help if you have any questions. I have implemented it in three large businesses/non profits and it is truly amazing.

Maybe we should have an Asana master thread?
Meanwhile, I sometimes get in my asana inbox "xx has unfollowed this tasks". What does that mean?

Have you checked out Moo.do?

Not yet, though it's on my list :)

I'm still ironing out the kinks in my workflowy setup.

At first glance moo.do looks similar to workflowy, but more complex. I like their GTD setup - one thing I miss in workflowy is having a dedicated Inbox. I set up one node as an inbox, but it's a pain to move things from it without endless scrolling.

I also miss having due dates. Most of my tasks are part of larger projects and/or don't have specific due dates, but for the few that due (read: credit card closing dates :) ), I'm still using Wunderlist. Which means I have to open 2 apps. Does moo.do do due dates?

If moo.do really gets a nice gmail integration, that would be a huge point in its favor.

Do you use moo.do? Do you like it?

I just downloaded it, so i don't have any experience yet.
According to their website, they're working on Gmail integration.
It has dates, but I'm not sure about notifications.
