Many of us spend our days pasting client emails into Asana and formatting them into tasks, or reformatting tasks created by others to make them more readable.
TAB+N is OK if you’re creating tasks from scratch but in daily use it’s painful because:
TAB+N doesn’t convert text to a section, it creates a new section which requires you to either re-type text, or copy/paste. Both are unneeded extra steps.
You can’t convert a section back to a task. Maybe you made a mistake, maybe things have changed, maybe you need to reformat to make things more readable?
Spend lest time managing tasks and more time doing them. TAB+N illustrates a worrying trend; that Asana has forgotten what made it so great. If a feature change adds extra steps, it should be questioned severely.
Yes, everything is ‘design by committee’ these days but sometimes a company needs to take a leadership role, understand core fundamentals and stick to its guns.
Why add extra steps to task management? Efficiency used to be a selling point.
