We really do like Asana, however as a marketing agency, it’s becoming harder to justify not having a client-facing interface of your work, so you don’t need to replicate/API/interface/choose-your-poison another layer of integration with another piece of software to show what seems pretty basic business or task information.
With that in mind, does anybody know a workaround to share a live task report without having a user logged in? We are using the trick of assigning “imaginary” client-users so we can track client tasks (approval/need to review/requirements steps/etc.) while not giving access to our entire project conversations and the “sausage making” process so to say.
I now have this great real-time Asana native report generated from our real-time Asana data with no visible way of sharing it externally (please don’t mention the ability to manually export CSV since this would need to be automated to really be useful). We could explore some zapier integration working in Asana, but having some sort of constant updating of the same set of data based on various events is pretty cumbersome to implement.
Is there any sort of 3rd party ways of completing this objective: am I missing something crucial?
In terms of data representation/sharing, the new dashboard feature was a huge letdown and only seem to be nice visual gimmicks without any actionable items for us. We’re toilers and makers of work, we need lists with powerful sorting/filtering abilities including custom fields, not trending & trendy pie charts-and maybe that’s not the target audience for Asana? For example, not seeing the “share link of timeline/dashboard” with external audiences prioritized over the dashboards is kind of a letdown for us…the opposite of what we need.
Alternatives like Monday seem to propose a lot more flexibility and power when it comes down to that aspect-any thoughts?
