We’ve all heard the saying “Friends don’t let friends… [fill in the blank], right? With this quick tip, I just wanted to take a brief moment and highlight the value of having a developer friend because "Friends don’t let Friends Asana alone!” #AsanaTogether
I’m fortunate to have met a handful of them within the forum. I can confidently say that through these relationships I’ve widened both my perspective and use of Asana. If you haven’t already, I would recommend that you reach out to one. Share your interests… talk about any recent successes… discuss pain points that you are experiencing… you might be surprised with what they have to offer and how easily they might be able to lift a burden!
Not to mention, it’s cool to have a developer friend… and guess what?!?.. @Bastien_Siebman can be that friend! I mean… look what he did for me:
I subscribe to his newsletter where I learned he had a working solution to introduce auto computation within Asana. This is something I was handling through the Google Sheet integration, but I really wanted to be able to leverage the native Asana features like Dashboards. I asked my friend if he could help and in no time (which would have taken me the complete opposite of no time to setup and manage) I had a fully functional solution!!!
As seen in the image above, my developer friend was able to build a tool that computes the Weighted Volume by multiplying the Probability field by the Volume Field. Because of this, I can now create Custom Charts and see Section Totals of these values without ever having to leave Asana!
Pretty magical , right? Go make a developer friend TODAY!
