Campus life is a busy one. Between your courseload, extracurriculars, and a job or internship search, it can be hard to stay on top of all of your student responsibilities—especially if you rely on a planner, spreadsheets, or loose sticky notes. Follow our instructions below to learn how to use Asana to track all of your work—across all of campus—and get better results.
Track notes, homework, and projects
- Sign up for an Asana account and create a new Workspace. This will be the home for tracking all your assignments, and all things related to class.
- Create a project for every class. Keep all your homework, notes, and other information for each class in a separate project to stay organized and track your progress. Give your project the same name as the class.
- Add assignments, notes, and information as tasks. When you have new assignments (like writing a paper, reading, or studying for a test), create a new task for each one. Tasks can represent to-dos, or store information you want to hold on to.
- Create project sections so you can keep your work organized—just type a colon
:at the end of a task. You might want to add sectionssection Sections let teams organize your task lists. Divide projects or My Tasks list based on category, workflow stage, or priority. Read more like “assignments,” “notes,” “reference material,” “questions for professor,” etc.
- Add more context to your tasks by attaching files. Asana syncs with Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box so you can quickly upload any file. You can also add more details and links in the task descriptiontask description Task description is a text field that allows users to add details and context to their tasks. Read more .
- Add due dates and times to your tasks and assign them to yourself (type
Tab + M) so you get them done on time. You can even sync Asana to your calendar so you never miss a deadline again.
