My company has <10 staff & we build houses using sub-contractors. I’ve been experimenting with the free version of Asana which seems very nice We’re ready to purchase the Premium service if it meets our requirements. We usually have up to 10 project builds occurring at one time. We have up to 10 sub-contractors (companies i.e. they have multiple staff working for us) which work on multiple projects. And then we also have contractors which might only work with us for one project.
I’ve been trying to figure out how best to structure Asana and I would really appreciate your advice.
Say this is our subcontractors:
Bricklayer firm A - works on total of 5 build projects (Projects # 2,4,6,8,10)
Bricklayer firm B - works on total of 4 build projects (Projects # 1,3,5,7)
Bricklayer firm C - works on total of 1 build project (Project # 9)
Carpenter firm A - works on total of 9 build projects (Projects # 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)
Carpenter firm B - works on total of 1 build project (Project # 10)
Electrician firm A - works on total of 10 projects
Plumber firm A - works on total of 5 projects
Plumber firm B - works on total of 5 projects
Each subcontractor might have anything from 1 to 30 tasks for each project they’re working on.
We have our own staff which need to be able to see all tasks everywhere, and be able to add/modify tasks and mark them as complete.
Each subcontractor needs to be able to see all their own tasks for all of their projects (and create their own tasks or modify existing). It’s OK if they see other contractors tasks if they are on the same project. But they must not be able to mark a task for another contractor as complete (or modify an existing task). All subcontractors use a different email address from our own domain.
How best would you suggest we structure Asana? How will the Premium service help?
