It depends on the scope of work, and who’s involved. Let’s break it down:
Create a project for large coordinated efforts with lots of steps and stakeholders, like a marketing campaign.
Create a task to capture a single to-do for one person, like writing a blog.
Create a subtask to break a task into smaller pieces or divide the work among multiple people. For example, break a blog request into subtasks for drafting, review, and publishing.
Yes, you can do both. Get started with a few clicks by using a CSV file to import tasks to your Asana project. Then, export your project as a JSON or CSV file.
Create custom sections to divide and organize the tasks in your project. For example, you can bucket tasks according to different workflow stages, priorities, or topics.
You can also organize projects with custom fields, color-coded labels that help you differentiate tasks at-a-glance.
