I use a similar setup but rather than today/tomorrow/this week I have the names of my Directors (I’m an EA) this allows me to ensure I am not letting delegated tasks build up for one director whilst I am firing through another.
I have 4 directors in total so I have the following sections:
I can see what I am waiting on and what I need to do, I prefer to use the my tasks section as opposed to Projects, although I did setup a perpetual calendar within a project.
I’m a big fan of calendar blocking but like to do so without leaving Asana. I created headings for time chunks under today and add my meetings first. Then drag tasks around to fit where I think I can get them done.
Hi All. Asana Rookie (day 2).
I love to have things sorted by time , then project, then tasks.
By default, the “Today” and “Upcoming” view lists everything randomly, regardless of project.
HOWEVER, in Later, the Default view organizes all the tasks by project, which I LOVE! I wish I could have this view in Today and Upcoming. Does anyone know if this is possible or why the defaults are different? I am on a basic plan as I am new. Prepared to upgrade if it helps. Thanks for the help!!
Welcome to the Community. Although you can sort all of My Tasks by project, I’m afraid it’s not currently possible to sort within Today and Upcoming. However, there’s a related feedback thread here, if you want to add your vote:
OMG I love the time sections idea so much!
Maybe also of use to someone…I like to use time-based sections, but fewer of them, like this:
Task to do in the morning
Another task for later in the morning
Lunch with somebody
Task to do in afternoon
Task to do tonight
. . .
This is really great!
This is an awesome mentality to have. Distributing weight and focus on what’s most important, and less for the lesser tasks.
I like to keep it even simpler, as I generally got overwhelmed by organising when there are too many tasks
So I use this tool that I made every day, and it actually STOPS me from doing the work until I’ve sorted out my tasks into the right sections
