What is your team’s etiquette around assignments and due dates? When someone is assigned a task and due date, is the default team expectation that the person accepts it unless they push back, or do they have to affirmatively accept it with a heart, comment, or otherwise?
We had our first conflict the other day where something didn’t get done on time and the person who was expecting it said “But I put it in Asana!” The assignees said they didn’t have enough time to do it, and a unilateral assignment is just a request. We discussed this as a team yesterday and decided that a person should be deemed to have accepted an assignment and due date unless they push back by the next day. We also discussed how this means it’s important for everyone to keep up with Inbox and notifications throughout the day so they know what they’ve been assigned.
How does your team approach this?
