Do you know the « Assign duplicate tasks » feature in Asana? It is actually available in the task pane (not in quick add mode) when clicking on the assignee button. It allows you to assign duplicates (duh) to different people.
What you probably don’t know is that you can type a Team name in that field and that will assign duplicates to each team members.
So here’s today’s trick: create Asana Teams matching « real » teams at the company, so that you can assign duplicates by typing « Floor 2 », « London office » or « Marketing » even though there is no need for such a team in Asana.
PS: that will clutter Asana though, so maybe this is a bad advice? hmmm not sure, I’ll think about it
Great tip, @Bastien_Siebman! This option is very useful when you need each team member to take an action, for example, complete a mandatory certification/course. If you need to make an announcement, I’d recommend sending a Message to the team as @lpb mentioned!
Love this trick @Bastien_Siebman and the detailed explanation on the assign duplicates feature @Phil_Seeman! I dont find myself using the assign duplicates feature all the often but when I do it is a MAJOR time saver.
