As a paying user I’m really sorry but I have to say I’m considering to leave Asana.
The Asana inability to give a Project Manager the ability of stay on top of specific projects is something so unreasonable that I cannot believe Asana product developers are ignoring it.
Asana is made for teams, right? Teams uses people called Project Managers (!). A project manager needs to look for updates on specific projects! The inbox is ridiculously cumbersome, with notification coming from all projects, it’s totally useless when you manage multiple projects… which is something Asana is supposed to be useful for.
If someone in the Asana team has strategies to share… please I’m here to hear 1.
I feel this would be a REASONABLE request.
Recently you introduced the “Timeline” tab for every project. Great feature, I love it!
Is it so complicated to create an “inbox” tab for every project, with notification coming only from it? Or AT LEAST, give us the possibility to filter the inbox by project. Your product is not cheap, you should hear to your clients.
You have received many many feature requests about this topic. They are segmented, because there is no a single mode to describe the problem. But if you aggregate them, you can see this is one of the most important Asana adoption blocks. I could also suspect that if this feature would be available only for premium user, many many people would be willing to pay for the upgrade. See:
From an implementation standpoint I cannot believe this is something that requires much resources. It’s matter of adding a new tab in every project, that shows notification coming only from this project. Pretty simple and straightforward. No complicated interface design: it’s simply the same view as inbox, but limited to a project.
Many of your competitors, are quickly implementing feature like this. And I foresee many of my colleagues will be sadly constrained to switch, due of that limitation.
In my opinion you should seriously consider to interview real Project Managers to realize this feature needs to be prioritized before it’s too late.
Just my 2 cents.
