Since Asana likes case studies, here we go…
I was recently in a board room with my team and developers. I was heading it with Asana on the main screen.
Me: Ok, let’s talk about this task. I need everybody to go to it. It is in the Enhancement Board 2018
Ana: In which column?
Me: It is in the In Progress column about half way down.
Vesta: I still can’t find it.
Me: Wait a sec, there is a task reference number up here. (I point to the URL).
Peter (Head Developer): It won’t come up.
Me: Sorry, you can’t search for it in the search box.
Peter: Are you serious?
Me: You have to type the whole url string into a browser for it to show up.
Peter: Really?! Who designed this?
Me: Sorry everybody, hang on I will create a conversation in the project and send you the URL.
Vesta: I still don’t have it.
Me: Sorry, Vesta, I forgot to include you. Here you go. Ok, everybody got that now?
Team: People nodding somewhat miffed .
Me: Ok, this task relates to another in a different project that we started in 2017. So I will have to send that url to you now.
Team: Hugh sighs.
In hopefully a not to distant future…
Me: Ok, let’s talk about this task. The reference number is 208125469. Just type that in the search box on top. Everybody got that? Awesome let’s get going.
Jeff, I hope that explains the need.
