I’m a relatively new Asana user that’s recently switched over from Basecamp. One thing that I’m used to from Basecamp (but not seeing how to use in Asana), are the uses of Teams vs Projects. In Basecamp, You have “Teams” which would be broken up in Design, Marketing, IT, etc, as expected. But then “Projects” are their own thing, which various “Teams” can be a part of. This allows each “Team” to have their own space, but allows for “Projects” to be accessed and worked on across the company, instead of in silos.
It seems like in Asana, Projects have to exist within a team… which seems cumbersome for multiple teams to work collaboratively on the same project.
For example, we’re in the midst of a new Web Design project, and we’ll need the design team, development team, and account management team all working together. Where should this type of “Project” live? Do we need to create separate projects within each team, with only that department’s tasks (seems like that’s wrong)? Or is it supposed to go under one team, and just invite everyone to that project? If it’s the latter - then what’s the point of having “Teams” anyways?
Any insight helps!
