I think this is the right category?
Anyway, here’s the deal:
I run a facility that has a small manufacturing division. We are currently using Excel to enter mill orders and track them. I have been spending a lot of time figuring out how to switch us to Asana, and I’m ready to shake up the works. The one thing stopping me is how Asana prints tasks.
Our process, as I envision it, is simple. We enter an order into our ERP (which is ancient and a real POS) and then create the mill order in Asana. The task will be printed out and given to the mill as their production order. We will track the progress using Instagantt.
I use 2 paragraph fields, one for describing the item to be made, the other for describing the material to be used. Below is an example of how we enter the info and how we need it to print.
84M - 55BDF
64M - 17BDF
1/2" INS. GLASS CLEAR 6"X26"
4-1/2 SATIN NICKEL HINGE
TTPART - 3/0 ALUM BLACK SILL
What it actually prints like is
84M - 55BDF 64M - 17BDF 1/2" INS. GLASS CLEAR 6"X26" 4-1/2 SATIN NICKEL HINGE 2-SCHWSS 1-SCHSWP48 TTPART - 3/0 ALUM BLACK SILL
My production guys can’t use that.
Is there a way to force Asana to print exactly as the text is entered, carriage returns and all?
