New to asana and this community. So still poking around in the app. So if something is already heappening
I run a small creative/marketing shop. Currently a Teamwork customer, but looking into some different options.
Over the past week, I've done several demos with other PM companies. Some have really great features but are more geared for larger teams, accounting/invoicing and/or the price point for us at the moment wouldn't be a wise move.
1) I really enjoyed a feature that I used recently where an image or design was uploaded (.JPG, .PNG etc.) when clicked the image entered a large lightbox and was able to be marked up. Arrows, Boxes, text etc., which is super helpful. A small add-on to this feature would be to save versions which can be scrolled. A feature to that version idea would be to be able to look at 2 versions side-by-side.
Why? For creatives it's super helpful to pin-point precise areas on design mockups. It also saves a bunch of time in trying to explain which areas.
How does it work? A mark was placed on the image/design and a comment field opened up on the right to explain what the mark on the image/design is trying to say.
2) I dont even know if this exists, but it would be helpful. If we add a client, can we "impersonate" the client before inviting them so we can get a real-feel experience of how/what they would experience when they are invited.
Why? Not knowing what they will expereince can cause some anxiety. Having the ability to set the screen by which they enter would be great- we can add instructions, a welcome note etc.
1) I dont even know if this is possible, but it would be helpful. We often use .PSD, .PDF file formats which do not show up on any platform. It would be cool to add a .PSD,.PDF and have that show up with the imahe, not only the attachment similar to what happens with .JPG, .PNG.
Why? Seeing that there is something behind the card takes the guess work out of where to click/or if anything was done inside of the card.
2) The ability to delete Files from the Files view tab. Seems pretty straighforward. I wrote in about this as it puzzled me. Here is the response I got, "Unfortunately, there’s no way to delete files from the Files View tab in a project. You can delete files from a parent task but the file will still appear in the Files View."
Why? If you're there, having a little X or something to delete the files while they are all in one place makes the user experience a bit easier.
Looking forward to learning more about this app, helping others where I can and hopefully becoming more organized and productive!
