One of my clients has quit using the Asana progress tracking features because the highest level management wants to sort projects by tags before they review any progress.
So, they’ve created a task in every project called “control task”. This task is used in place of progress tracking simply because a task can have tags and enables Advanced Searching. We added a custom field to every project so this one “control task” can show status (red,yellow,green)
No-one in the org is making use of the project progress tracking features because top level management wants to use Advanced Search to sort “control tasks” by tag name and then review progress updates from that generated list.
We’ve tried the live google sheet export, which is really cool; but without project level tags, the managers are not interested in using that report.
This “control task” stuff works but it’s messy and causes some confusion. Anything better out there? Is Asana working on a solution to this Top level project review and sorting use case?
