If you are are a manager of a portfolio or team of people it might be advantageous to be able to track Status Update requests in Asana. Thanks to Advanced Search Reports you can always be one click away from the updates that you have requested of others.
these status update requests aren’t assigned to any particular project by default. For this reason, I like multi-homing them to a 1-on-1 project board that I have with each of the employees. This makes these status updates a priority and ensures everyone has the latest details to close on work.
