We just started using Asana for collecting our lunch orders for when order out for all. We have 10 employees and we order out lunch weekly.
In our “ALL OFFICE” team we have a project called “Lunch Orders”. Inside there we create a new task for each order “MM/DD/YYYY Johnies Takeout”. The description of the task has the link to the menu and everyone adds their order to the task. Works well.
One thing we are working on is the most efficient way (yeah we overthink things!).
We have tested out each employee adding their order as a subtask. And we have tried adding the order as a comment to the main task. Subtask works well because the person placing the order just needs to check it off as they order. Conversely if we use the comments instead, the person placing the order can “like” the comment as they place it.
Anyway, not really a huge accomplishment but it helps keep people in Asana and out of email!
