Yesterday I posted a series of questions that were asked about the workflow during the Asanatogether world tour.
I posted 5 questions that I consider part of the workflow basic features. Today, I continue the post with the workflow advanced features.
I have a rule where an approval subtask is created when the status of the task (in a custom field) is moved to ‘Approval Needed’. If the subtask approval got rejected, can I create a rule to change the status of the task. Or to move it back to a different section?
Unfortunately, no. Currently the trigger action set up in asana is top down i.e. you can have trigger to create a subtask. You cannot create a bottom up trigger.
Can I create a rule to assign the task back to the requester?
I personally like this question a lot. Currently, the action you can create is to assign the task to a specified individual. You cannot assign it back to the requester. I can see the potential of this feature though. Please upvote this feature here
Can I create rules to move individuals from one team in asana to another?
Triggers and actions are housed within a project and they do not exist for teams within asana. I am not quite sure of the user case for this one, but if you encounter it, then the answer is no, this is not possible.
One of the nice features to have is proof reading within asana. Can I proof read a video when the production is shared with me?
Currently, proofing is available for PDF, PNG, JPG, GIF & BMP files. Videos are not part of the format (yet). You can read more about this feature in the guide here
When someone leaves the organisation, do I get all the rules they created housed somewhere so I can review and assign to someone else?
This is an excellent question as well. Currently, it is not possible to do so, but it is a feature worth asking for. Please upvote the product feedback
