How to create project timelines in Asana

Asana can help you create more than just a timeline. To take your project from idea to results in Asana’s online app, follow these steps:

1. Create projects and tasks

Start by creating a new Asana project. Break up the work into tasks and subtasks to reflect your workflow, then add due dates and assignees.

2. View as a calendar

Switch from list to Calendar View in a project to get a quick (and clear) overview of who’s doing what by when against your project deadline.

3. Track project progress

Look at projects in Progress View to see the progress your team is making at a glance. Then, send status updates so your team knows if the project is on track or not.

4. Turn projects into Gantt charts

With the Instagantt integration, view any project in Asana as a Gantt chart or project timeline. Simply sign up with Asana and import your projects.

A clear view of your project and timeline

Divvy up the work among teammates, hit deadlines, track progress, and stay on top of your timeline.
