Say there is a task assigned to Bob. Asana allows Sara to log time to that task. Say she logs 15m to it. How should such an entry be interpreted. I can imagine two interpretations:
- Sara did 15m of work on Bob’s task.
- Sara is helping Bob log his time. She is noting that Bob did 15m of work on his task.
From other responses, I believe most people are thinking the answer is 1. Can I please get confirmation that that is the intended semantics of this feature.
And if so, I’d like to know if 2 is possible. What if Sara is Bob’s manager and she wants to help Bob in this way?
The interpretation would be organizationally dependent, but I do believe that if I saw 15 minutes logged by Sarah on Bob’s task my automatic assumption would be that she worked on his task with him.
For scenario 2, there currently isn’t a way to log time for another person in Asana. Everyone needs to log their own time.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for the reply. I think we’ll go with interpretation 1. That does seem to be how most people are thinking of it.
I do feel like this should be dictated by Asana. They should decide what the intended interpretation is and tell us.
