Allow anyone to get Progress reminders, not just the owner

At our company, frequently the owner of a project is not necessarily the project manager, and it would be nice if the project manager could toggle on the “Remind me to update the status every Friday” setting. Sometimes we have 2 or 3 people who could do the job as well, so even just pushing back that we should consider changing the project owner isn’t a great option for us.

Thx :slight_smile:

Hi @chrismo!

This is a great suggestion for Asana; I can really see a use case for this.

For now, there is a work around if you would like to implement it. If there is someone that should be updating status that isn’t the project owner the project owner can create a separate task within the project and assign a recurring task to the project manager to update the status. I even use the same phrasing that Asana uses when I assign this to someone else. It helps keep things consistent and it’s usually received better by the person that’s getting assigned the updates as well.

Just a thought,
