I’m in the process of getting our team set up in Asana, we manage a large annual festival, and a big part of what we need to stay on top of is our sponsorship fulfillments. We have roughly 40 sponsors at varying levels, and each has anywhere from 10-20 things to track (ie, signing agreements, sending invoices, getting an ad, sending thank you cards, etc).
What I’m trying to figure out is what the best way for us to structure all of this would be, in a way that’s not a major time burden, but also doesn’t make our list totally explode. I’ve looked at a few ways of structuring it and I’ve come up with these different arrangements. (For reference, we are using the Premium plan as an organization with separate teams).
Scenario 1: Projects + Tasks
Under the Sponsor Fulfillment team, create a new project for each sponsor (likely from a template), with a pre-built task list of all the applicable tasks that would need to be fulfilled on.
Scenario 2: Tasks + Subtasks, Boards
In a Sponsor Fulfillment project (in board layout), create a new task for each sponsor, with fulfillment items as sub-tasks.
Scenario 3: Sections + Tasks, List View
In a Sponsor Fulfillment project (in list layout), create a section for each sponsor, with fulfillment items as tasks under that.
Of course, there’s other permutations of those options as well, but that’s roughly where I’ve ended up. I’m trying to balance visibility of tasks to be completed (ie, not having to go into a sponsor task to see the subtasks) while keeping it from being overwhelming (a list of hundreds of tasks, or 40 projects in a team).
Does anyone have experience with something like this, or a recommendation on what a good solution might be?
