Status Updates: Need options for "remind me every ___"

Hi, all!

As our digital agency’s marketing coordinator, I update the status of all of our projects so that our team knows what’s coming up for the week. I do this every Monday so that we have a roadmap for our work.

But…Asana only gives users the option to “Remind me to update the status every Friday”! I think Friday is a poor choice for updating projects.

-First off, your team has probably already checked out of work on Friday when you update the status.
-It also creates a 2-day gap (the weekend) between the status update and the subsequent work that probably needs to be done.

Sure, I could make myself a reoccurring task due every Monday that reminds me to update project statuses, but I don’t want to have to create a workaround! Asana, please give people options for status update reminders similar to the way you give options for recurring tasks, and allow us to pick which days we want to remind ourselves to update statuses :slight_smile:

Agree with me? Leave a comment! Or maybe there already is a solution to this?! Comment and let me know!


Remind me to update status every ... well, i don't work on Fridays

I would recommend using recurring Tasks instead.


Remind me to update status every ... well, i don't work on Fridays

I have a small request to make: as I don’t work on Fridays (yes, lucky me :-), I’d like asana to remind me about making status updates on Thursday, or one a day of the week I can select, more generally. And if you want to add a little icing on top, an adjustable period might also make sense - like, every other week, once a month …

Thanks for the feedback @Werner_Beck; I’ve gone ahead and merged your thread with Status Updates: Need options for “remind me every ___” as your requests are very similar. @Vince_Mustachio advice could also be a good solution for the time being :slight_smile:
