The My Tasks view in Asana changes everything: once you learn how to use it, nothing stops you. I recently made a small change that made all the difference.
In fact, I’ve changed all the sections of my “My Tasks” to make it 100% mine, according to my needs.
Want to discover this change? I invite you to take a look at this video, where I explain everything.
What about you? Are you a fan of making changes or of the basic “My Tasks”?
I’ve done this as well. We use Asana primarily for triaging internal operational service requests and incidents, as well as longer term initiatives and user management. I’ve created buckets within My Tasks - I still use “Do Today” and some of the other defaults, but I have a separate section for tasks that are awaiting others, open tickets and enhancements with third party vendors, and active work vs backlog. I now use My Tasks for primary day-to-day task management, and only have to go into projects when new requests are submitted to triage them, and for periodic report outs and follow ups on tasks that are assigned to others. Customizing My Tasks has totally changed the game, and I love that I can set what bucket it’s in regardless of where I am in the system!
Fantastic, @Bastien_Siebman! Yes, it definitely helps. I’m trying out some of your techniques for prioritization and the genius snooze sections. Great idea to streamline control of due dates. Thank you.
