I am an Asana power user and evangelist.
I recommend Asana to everyone.
- At my old job, I led Asana onboarding training meetings customized to focus on the best features for each department.
- I read the entire Asana guide and wrote my own tutorial document for my company, which was so popular that I made it a public google document for others to share.
- I was the contact person whenever someone needed to troubleshoot a function.
Asana is one of the best things that ever happened to my workflow.
I am still miserable about this change.
The workarounds posted in this thread work fine for simple tasks, but on subtasks they hide the menu buttons at the top of the task. Very very annoying. But still less annoying than having to scroll down to see the project.
Especially since most of my tasks come through email at my new job.
Thanks to the crappy email formatting in Asana where all link text is doubled AND our lengthy corporate privacy language (“The contents of this email are confidential. blah blah blah.”) the project label rarely makes it above the fold on my tasks.
It’s harder for me to recommend Asana to others after this UI change.
Projects are one of the game-changing features about Asana that other platforms struggle to match. They’re more important that boards. I don’t understand why you would bury this feature.
Maybe it’s time for a CSO?
"Consider the most annoying and exasperating stumbles of some high-profile new and newish companies over the past year and they all have to do with leaving consumers guessing—because of messed-up messaging, herky-jerky interface changes, ever-morphing strategies, and excessive course corrections.
We’ve seen it with Snapchat. (This redesign makes everything better and easier! Please ignore the 1.2 million users who signed a Change.org petition begging for a reversal of the “update” … although eventually we’ll pay attention to it, but not before shedding 3 million active users in just one quarter.)"
