Our client, a busy entrepreneur was using Asana as a project/task management tool, but there was an issue- the entire team wasn’t completely bought in to using Asana and wouldn’t regularly check their task lists or mark tasks as completed when they were done. Our client needed a way to prompt team members to get into the habit of using Asana to boost productivity and ensure that projects were staying on track.
Asana links! Once we identified the problem, we implemented daily “task link” emails to team members to encourage them to work in Asana. We simply copied the links for all the team members’ tasks for the day and emailed them in the morning. This prompted team members to click on the link and mark the task complete when they were done.
Asana tasks are now getting done on time, and marked as complete, which gives our client a great peace of mind to know that the projects/tasks are going to stay on track and nothing is going to be missed.
How We Helped
Once logged into our client’s Asana area, we simply click on a team member to view their task list, and we created a canned response template in Gmail for a simple reminder to please take a look at the tasks due today. We grab the links to the tasks and paste them into the email and send. This email is sent out first thing in the morning every weekday. Voila! Tracked productivity for the win!
