We use Asana projects to run advertising campaigns from templates.
I that we can plan relative to
date_project_end, but to us
date_campaign_end are more important.
It would be really convenient if we could plan relative to (before, on, and after) these dates. For example to set deadlines for preparing to go live and financial administration the campaign ends.
We’d have Campaign Live and Campaign Ended as milestones on these dates, and plan other tasks relative to these dates.
Ideally creating a project from this template would trigger the user to define these dates.
The only current way I currently see to accomplish this is to split the project up in pre, live, and post projects. This seems to convoluted since we want to have an overview of each campaign in a single project.
Or am I missing something?
EDIT 2023-02-27: It appears I’ve misunderstood Asana’s current functionality.
Apparently (like @Debbie_Nafzger pointed out) it currently is one either after project start, or before project end.
It would make sense to me not to have to choose and to be able to use multiple dates. Just use negative numbers for days before, and positive numbers for days after.
