Creating Project Dependencies

Hi there! :wave:

I use Asana for the project management of a production process across multiple teams. I am in Email Marketing and my process is dependent on that of the Content & Design teams. I would love to make tasks within my projects dependent on the completion of their task within their project.

So, as an example:

  • I keep all of my tasks in an Email Marketing Project. Users make requests of me through the Asana Form attached to the project, and then track the progress of their request through my board.
  • When an email request is made, the Content team immediately begins their process of writing the email copy, getting design assets created, etc. That is all tracked in a task in their Content Team Board.
  • When they complete their task, I would like for that to trigger a notification in my task, i.e. create a dependency between their task and mine, the way you can create a dependency between two tasks within the same project. I would also love for the copy doc or some info from their task to be passed over to mine.

Is this possible? Is there any way to create this dependency so that the process of passing off the project from one stage to the next is automated? Thank you!

Hi @Kristin_McLerran

You can definitely make Take dependant on others.

Have a look at this guide article.

Hope this helps.
