Getting to grips with Asana. Easy to use.
One of the things I’m struggling with is the fact that task dependencies aren’t modelled fully.
So, we build out a project, assign tasks, dependencies and due dates. The whole thing at day 1 appears to model the project beautifully. But then. Some tasks start to slip. Suddenly everyone has tasks in their My Tasks list are supposedly due today but in reality can’t be started until those slipped tasks are completed.
The challenge is then …
- Do we really have to re-assign Due dates to every single task which has yet to be done! And repeat this every time a task slips its due date?
- How do my team quickly determine from their ‘My Tasks’ whether those tasks are genuinely due today or whether that due date is no longer valid. Do they really have to open each task to work it out?
Thanks for any help.
