Excel spreadsheets, workflowy lists, and back and forth emails, move over! If you’re looking for an app to keep everyone in your organization on the same page, we suggest Asana. Asana is a simple yet powerful work management platform full of features that project managers of all types need.
Start by creating teams, then create projects by team. All team members can individualize their own project lists by assigning colors, and mark what they are working on now as a favorite for easier access. Use the list feature to divide projects into sections like in-progress and completed. Assign the necessary people to get the project pieces into the right hands and you’re set.
Move into the calendar feature where team members can see their past, current and future deadlines. Team members will have visual reminders of specific responsibilities and what projects or stages are ahead of them.
But Asana’s premium features are what sets it apart for AEC professionals. We at MARKETLINK love using it for our clients because we can fully visualize all necessary steps to getting to our end goal. With color-coded priority levels, a visual timeline, calendar, and an integrated kanban task progress field, everyone will always be on the same page.
Asana is free to use for up to 15 people. If you want premium features, you have the option to upgrade (pricing depends on selection).
Whether you need to get your department in harmony or just want to show off your organizational panache, get Asana and get the teamwork rolling.
