My team has used Asana for years and it’s been very helpful.
Over time we’ve accumulated many tasks which are on-standby, or waiting on other long-term changes, or are brainstorms we may never work on but don’t want to lose our past progress on. This has made our Asana Team hard to navigate: many projects, many sections, and many many tasks. We can keep adding our shorter-term more-actionable info to this heap, but its sheer volume makes it disorienting.
I am thinking of a solution and want to run it by Asana users for feedback. My idea is to create a ‘Boneyard’ project, with sections in it for each actual project, and then all tasks moved under each section. That loses some ‘resolution’ in that within-project sections now get lost as all of the project’s tasks go under a single section in the boneyard project. Because these are tasks we rarely reference now, I think that’s okay. After the boneyard is setup, tasks we do want to keep in our main set of projects can be added back to ‘fresh slate’ projects, giving us something of a reset without losing any past Asana inputs.
Anyone doing something like this? See likely problems we’ll run into, or any tips how to implement this well? Thanks!
