At my last job, our webdev got so fed up with all of us tapping him on the shoulder / emailing / Slacking (okay, okay, HipChatting – this was 2014) him to let him know about a bug / request / thing we needed Right. Now. that he gave us an ultimatum “put it in Asana or I won’t do it.” So, obviously, that got us all to use Asana pretty quickly!
Even with Asana, though, getting interrupted by coworkers is hard to avoid. What are some things you do (either with or without Asana) to better manage coworkers requesting you to do something for them?
Also, I didn’t know it at the time, but apparently what we were doing is called “work requests” – our forever fearless guide writer, Nikki, just wrote up some of her best tips as well
