I am looking forward to migrate fully to asana from Things because of pricing/costs reasons. What I have right now in Things (for Mac) is :
I have never used "Areas of responsibility" as I find them completely useless.
My walkthrough when having a new project in Things is :
- I create a new project for [P] Personal or [W] Work to make them clear out from in first sight. That means that I can have a project [P] Clean my room or [P] Update my Linkedin profile and [W] Send report to Manager.
I am confused with Asana's workspaces. All I want is to have several projects with multiple tasks and subtasks. What am I thinking is :
create a Workspace called "[P] Projects" and another one "[W] Projects". Then each project will contain its tasks having them all in one "workspace" place. The cons are that I won't be able to break down projects to smaller ones, as the video about project management in asana help videos shows. The only way is to have labels by pressing ":" at the end of each task group.
create a separate workspace for each big project. That will be hell. Asana's left column seems the only negative aspect to me, where you can't view the tasks of all workspaces in one place. Also, If I have 30 workspaces/projects, it seems VERY hard to follow with every one of them and hunt deadlines.
Also, there are no menus for GTD in Asana like "today", "next", "someday", etc.
If you use Asana, how do you do it ?
