How do I best organize an product backlog by ways of an Agile hierarchy in Asana?


#1

I am trying to find a way to best organize an agile structure in Asana. In summary, I would like to create a product backlog structured in the following hierarchy:

Theme>Epic>Feature>User Story>Tasks

I’ve tried using section headers but since you cannot nest section headers, it will only work for one level. Maybe using tags? or custom fields?

Thoughts?

Hi Michael,

Nesting is a difficult thing to do in Asana. And I don’t think I’ll provide a clear answer for you, but try to look at projects as a solution. Use one “main” project to build the backbone and other projects for your nesting. You can refer to tasks in other projects, to other projects thanks to the “@” sign, etc…

Hope that helps,
Carl
