Asana


Hey everyone!!!!  Welcome to Bloggiesta!  I’m ridiculously excited to show y’all how to keep your team organized. Things can get crazy when you have co-bloggers, or just in general.

I’ve been using Asana for about a year.  And it’s made everything soooo much easier. I love being able to see what we have coming up next, and being able to chat about tasks within the app/site.  There’s a free and paid version. I use the free one, and haven’t run into any problems. I hope this little gem helps you out.


How to use Asana

1. Go to the Asana website & create an account.

Asana 1

After you are all set up and logged in, this is what your page will look like.

2. Create a group/workspace.Asana 3

Go up to the little circle with your initials in the top right corner, and click create workspace.

Asana 4

Name your workspace and invite the members of your team.


3. Create Projects

Asana 5

You just click on that little plus sign to create whatever projects you want for your team.

Asana 6

You can share those projects with the team, or make them private so only you can see them.

Asana 7

You can even set colors for different projects.


4. Create sections and tasks.

Asana 8

You can add sections to keep things in order and then add tasks under those sections. Or you can just make a task list. You just have to click on the lined section.

Asana 9

You can then assign the task to one person. Or be like me and leave it blank. But you can add people at the bottom where it says followers for them to follow the task if they have any input.  And see that nifty little comment box? You can talk with your team members about the task. Asana 10

You can set the due date to whenever things need to be posted.

Asana 11

If it’s a meme, or something you post weekly or monthly you can do that clicking the set to repeat option under the calendar and add the options that best suit you.


5. Features that Asana offers.

Asana 12

You can have conversations within the project by clicking on conversations below the project title.

Asana 13

There’s also a calendar for those that need visuals. You can add tasks and check them off all from this page.  You can even import this calendar to google calendar. Asana 14

You can add google files to tasks, and find them in the files section of the project.

Asana 15

You also don’t need to be in a project to start a conversation. Just click on the Team Conversations on the right side, and you can start any conversation you want.

I really hope this helps you and your team stay organized.  I love this program. I can use it on my computer or on my phone when I’m out and about. It all syncs and everything is within reach.
