This is the seventh post in our “How Asana uses Asana” series! Our first post describes how Asana’s Marketing Team uses Asana.
How the Product team at Asana Uses Asana
Asana’s product team uses Asana in many different ways, so for this post we’ll discuss two examples: product opportunities and launch projects.
In this first example you’ll see a project style that you may not have thought of before. In the spirit of our product, Asana is a transparent company that collects ideas and suggestions from employees where possible. We use a Product Opportunities project in Asana to collect ideas from the team about where the product could go! In this demo screenshot, you’ll see divisions for new ideas, P0, P1, etc. Ideas are prioritized by the project owner within sections and details about each idea are discussed within the task.
In the second example you’ll see a launch project setup. We use sections for goals and reference at the top of the project, and sections for each launch phase within the body of the project. These types of launch projects can be especially helpful in template form, so you don’t necessarily have to reinvent the wheel every time you’re launching a new feature or a feature update.
