Does anyone have any suggestions for a good, intuitive scheduling and office management tool? We have a small studio (6-10) and are looking for a tool to help manage staff and schedules.  We've been looking into Asana which has a lot of positives, but I wanted to see if anyone else has any other apps they've found to be helpful in the design studio setting.  Thanks!

Microsoft Projects is the best by far.

If you can write a scope of work for your office you can bring that into Project and develop the tools you need.

By adding each project into the you will develop a plan for your office. Sure, It takes work.

Couple that with an Office Spreadsheet of income, expenses and you are on the Way.

The big firm that I used to work at used Deltek for staff forecasting, but it cost a fortune and required a small army to get it up and running.

Take a look at Harvest.  I have never had the chance to use it, but it was at the top of my list when I was researching this stuff a few years ago.  Relatively affordable and lots of interconnectivity with other software such as Asana, Quickbooks, etc.  Harvest Forecast looks like it would provide the staff scheduling tools that you might be looking for.
