I’ve recently gotten on a bit of a Getting Things Done (GTD) kick, and am trying to get Asana to be the primary place that all of my to-dos and projects go. I’m a longtime Asana user, so most of the stuff is pretty straight-forward, but one thing I’m getting caught up on is the concept of “Waiting On”. Essentially what I’m trying to do is create 2 tasks - a Primary task and a Dependent task - and when the Primary task is marked as Complete, I want the Dependent task to show up under “New Tasks” in my Tasks.
So, if I want to schedule a meeting with Jeff, but I’m waiting for him to send me his availabilities, I theoretically want to hide “Schedule Meeting” until “Receive Availabilities” is complete. When “Receive Availabilities” is completed, then I want “Schedule Meeting” to show up at the top of My Tasks so that I can prioritize it. Because I’m not sure when I’ll mark Receive Availabilities as complete, I’d rather not assign a due date to either task. I also want to add both tasks to Asana at the same time so they’re not sitting in my brain somewhere.
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t love Inbox (which is probably going to be the right answer to this question), but am open to any thoughts or use cases you’ve all used!
as a side note, if anyone has any good Asana + GTD documentation, I’d love to see it!
