We’re a small PR/ comms agency, using Asana for almost four years across typically 4-6 clients today. I wanted to share how we are using it and see what people think, if we are really making any major mistakes (or if it helps anyone else in our situation.)
In our experience, clients have no appetite for more than 1x Asana project at a time — so typically we will lay out the next e.g. 6 months in one Asana Project, with each task representing a literal key project.
For example, at the top level of our 6 month project, we may have a list of:
- Interview X
- Announcement A
- Paid amplification Z
and each will have subtasks in it and space to communicate around that project.
Now —obviously this is a bit wonky. Asana seems to want us to make every single “project” (see list above) into its own Asana Project. Certainly things like dashboards seems set up for that.
What do people think? Is this madness? Do others do the same? Should we think about transitioning?
Thanks for your time.
