While I appreciate the My Tasks rollout being done thoughtfully, for those of us Business users who are fairly new to Asana, we have been left in limbo on getting our own daily productivity streamlined. All reports about My Tasks v2 have been that the changes are SO significant from V1, that workflows have had to be fully recreated and reworked - basically a lot of hassle for users to migrate. For me, as a new user, I chose to avoid wasting the time to learn V1, as it was reported V2 would be rolled out to Business users at the end of May. That hasn’t happened for me and my team yet, and we are left without a VITAL aspect of our workflow and productivity.
So, now with the other thread on this matter being closed, and a final message posted that seems to be a “you’ll get it when you get it”. That leaves me having to figure out whether I take the time now to go back and learn My Tasks v1 and take the time away from actual work to integrate our hundreds of tasks and multiple active projects into a system that is going to be replaced by V2; in the hope that we won’t keep losing valuable time in the interim. Or if I and my team need to just wait it out and muddle through without a useful My Tasks page, hoping that those of us who are paying for the higher tier accounts will migrate sooner than later.
Honestly, if I had known back in early May, that as of June 5th, Business clients STILL would not have been migrated to V2, I would have probably opted to work with v1, knowing I’d have to do it ALL over again when we finally got V2. I understand that there are likely many business/enterprise users not eager to get the V2 migration, due to the huge migration/rework that has to be done to get to efficiency again. But for a new user that recently came to Asana because of a business that has SO many moving pieces and parts handled by a very small team, this is a limbo that is very frustrating and costing us valuable time. Keeping vital tasks from slipping through the cracks is one of the reasons we opted to become Asana Business customers. Sadly, there have been things slipping through the cracks while waiting for the v2 migration.
Just curious: would it be correct to assume that the free and premium users got the migration first, so that the non-paying/lower paying Asana customers would be the ones to go through the guinea pig stage on V2? Otherwise, it does seem rather odd that the higher paying customers would be the last to be upgraded. I’d think early upgrades/rollouts would be a perk of being a higher priced account.
Regardless, I just wish they’d migrate us, so I can finally utilize custom rules and actually customize what will work best for me to fully stay on top of my daily workflow.
