I’m having trouble setting up some multi-step tasks that repeat every Mon-Fri. The repeat option in Asana doesn’t work for me because if someone is late on a task by several days there won’t be a task created for the days in between the last time the task was completed and today. I’m thinking of using something like Zapier to create the tasks on a weekly basis for each day of the week. Something like a task title of “Jan 2: Example Multi-Step Daily Task”.
The other issue I’m having is the “multi-step” aspect of these tasks. Subtasks aren’t ideal for a variety of reasons. I was thinking of maybe using subtasks but only to outline the workflow and not actually have an assignee for the subtasks. For instance I could assign the parent task to Person A and the subtasks could identify the steps in their title. For instance…
Subtask 1: Person A Create Report
Subtask 2: Person A assign parent task to Person B
Subtask 3: Person B QA check the report
Subtask 4: Person B assign parent task back to Person A
Subtask 5: Person B do what it says in the report
Subtask 6: Person B complete the parent task
I just feel like there must be a simpler/easier/better way to set this up than what I’ve outlined above. Any thoughts/suggestions???
