This post is a great idea. My team and I enjoy using Asana every day, for all kinds of workflows. Here’s a few enhancement opportunities, from my perspective:
- Continued development of feature-parity, with the web app, for the mobile iOS & Android apps.
I really appreciate the significant progress on the Asana mobile apps. I currently use it on my iPhone and iPad and would love to use it more, if not primarily, on my iPad. As a project manager, I see the future of business computing being based on mobile-optimized operating systems, such as iOS and Android. For me, the iPad is an incredibly flexible tool that is not only more efficient (in some cases) for managerial and administrative tasks, but it also breaks down the screen-sized “wall” that using a traditional laptop provides, when collaborating with my team, face-to-face.
- Reporting enhancements to the Progress view.
As a project manager in software development, it is common for my team to use a variety of agile techniques. One technique I regularly use is monitoring and tracking project velocity, via the use of story points (captured as a custom field). The Progress view is great for my team’s clients; however, it would be more effective for us if there were additional reports and graphs, that could be optionally added. Currently, I use a Google Sheet to record and monitor velocity – however, it would be amazing if it was automatically integrated, into Asana, for the full team to see.
- Finer control over mobile push notifications.
Push notifications can be great, when effectively used. As of now, I don’t have push notifications turned on; otherwise, my phone would be altering me all day and night! Having control over push notification settings would be a nice addition to Asana’s mobile apps that could further empower asynchronous collaboration with my team. Some considerations for these settings could be:
- Set badge count to be tasks due today.
- Receive push notifications only on tasks assigned to me (vs. everything I follow).
Please let me know if I can help clarify anything. Thank you for considering this feedback of an excellent product!
