In Asana, what do you think is best: archive a project, mark as complete, or both?
I believe it comes down to what makes the most sense to your organization.
However, if you want to make the most of what Asana offers us this is what I would do:
1. Always archive if the project is done
Because usually you don’t want the project to show up in a team anymore, especially if it was completed. This can help you maintain your space cleaner.
2. Complete if this project had previous status updates OR is part of a portfolio.
Because if your organization is used to work with portfolios, this can help you see what’s been completed more clearly and finish up a serie of status with a final one.
This is what I would do. However, there’s a “BUT”.
Archived projects will still show in portfolios.
So, even though they are archived, and you want them out of portfolios you will need to use a tool like “Portfolio cleaner” (iDO Tools - Improve Asana with our tools and automations)
In short, archive or complete, I’d go with both if the project is finished.
Move on and keep a clean space!
