I was looking to get some feedback on how we use Asana. Up until very recently we were on the free version. My process was:
- Create and assign task
- When the task is done and in the test environment, the assignee tags the task as
- I check the task and either reject (remove tag) or approve by removing the tag and adding a new
We do not lose who did the task, I know when it was added to test and to deploy. and this works across all projects.I am responsible for testing, so I favourite the
to test tag and work from there. it’s like a special project for me, and I can work by users or by project, removing the
to test tag as I go until I have tested everything (empty list :winning:).
Once a week we check the favourite
to deploy tag and check the tasks off on publish.
Trying to replace this process with the **Custom Field** works well enough, however I need to add the field to every project and there isn't a way to favourite a custom field *status*. I created a custom report, and that does the job, however, I find that when I change the custom field, it does not drop the task off (at least not straight away) the report. it's not as smooth an experience.
I find the tags work better for me, is it because I am used to it ? or because I am missing something in the custom fields? or not used to them yet
Is there a better approval process that I have not discovered? I have seen and read a few topics on approval, I am still looking for a better solution. I never get to tick a task off and I feel left out
