We have a lot of small to medium sized projects within our company that we are working on concurrently. So I need a way to stay on top of all of the major milestones for each project in a single view. In the past I managed this in a spreadsheet where I tracked the upcoming milestones each month. This gave me a single view where I could see all of the important milestones at a glance. I wanted to move this to Asana.
How I did this:
Each of our projects is a project in Asana – but there wasn’t a way to get a single calendar view of all the major milestones across all projects. So I created a separate project called “Project Roadmap”.
In the Project Roadmap I created sections for each month. Within that Month I added tasks for each major milestone. I used the date field to track when that milestone is due and use the custom fields to track the type of milestone. I also used a custom field to track the team that the milestone is for.
Here is an example:
The benefit of this project is it allows me to see all of the major milestones for all of my projects at a glance organized by the month that they are due. I can then go to that project for more details if needed to view the tasks and status of how it’s progressing.
